Eastside Wines and Market
Prohibition was over, and the Burns brothers were ready to capitalize. The store they opened in 1936, the Burns Brothers Liquor Shop, has since operated as a market, a butcher shop, and a liquor store, and today its current owner Steve Neidhardt maintains the focus on selling fine wines and gourmet meats and groceries. Steve stocks Eastside Wines and Market with more than 450 different bottles of wine from all over the world, priced modestly at $10–$20 per bottle. He also carries craft beers, liquors, and single-malt whiskeys, with a selection of seasonal beers that rotates like a ballerina strapped to a ferris wheel.
A longtime lover of vino, Steve studied at Boston University’s Elizabeth Bishop Wine Resource Center, earning a Wine Studies Level 3 certification. He shares his knowledge with the public during wine tastings and in private during tastings and catering for corporate events or special occasions. Eastside Wines and Market also delivers so that customers don’t have to leave to get snacks in the middle of a suspenseful weather forecast.
