No car necessary. While I haven't lived in Boston for nearly 5 years, and I'm sure someone else here can provide better information, the following are places I liked (in no particular order):
Cambridge Brewing Co
Trillium (never been; after my time but people rave about it)
Nightshift (a bit outside of town)
There are probably a bunch more that I'm forgetting, and I've got no real idea on bottleshops these days. I worked at a place called Charles Street, and it had a great selection for the time, but that's nearly 15 years ago and I don't know how it is now. Fortunately most of the information above isn't quite that dated.
