http://wikitravel.org/en/Massachusetts says:

Many establishments in Boston and Cape Cod will not serve to out of state visitors under 25. Get a Liquor ID, a state ID card available to non-residents from the Registry of Motor Vehicles if you'll be in the area for awhile, costs $25 for five years of validity. Note that under Massachusetts law, the only acceptable proofs of age for purchase of alcoholic beverages are the Massachusetts driver's license and the RMV Liquor ID card. Out-of-state driver's licenses, and even passports, are not acceptable.".

However, I heard that the Massachusetts Liquor ID is not always accepted as a proof of age (entrance to nightclubs/bars or buying alcohol at liquor stores). How likely is it?

A Liquor ID implies by no mean I'm from MA. E.g. :wikitravel.org/en/Massachusetts: "Many establishments in Boston and Cape Cod will not serve to out of state visitors under 25. Get a Liquor ID, a state ID card available to non-residents from the Registry of Motor Vehicles if you'll be in the area for awhile, costs $25 for five years of validity.

The more of these sentences you put into your question along with the single vague sentence so far, the better your question is going to do. The less effort you put into your question the less effort people will feel like contributing to an answer. –  hippietrail Dec 15 '13 at 2:41

Well I didn't vote the question down and I didn't vote to close it, I'm just trying to help you understand why it hasn't been well received here. –  hippietrail Dec 15 '13 at 3:35

+1 if only people would focus more on answering questions. This question is on topic and @FranckDernoncourt is right similar questions are abundant. People it is almost christmas and time to get rid of the pedantic filters. –  andra Dec 15 '13 at 13:03
