Our mission is to foster and support a community of folks who treasure great wine and beer. We want to share how one bottle can evoke surprise, joy, conviviality, memory, melancholy, awareness, and truth. We’re smaller than most shops, which forces and allows us to focus on what we really love. There are lots of great wines and beers we don’t carry, but there are hardly any on our shelves that we wouldn’t happily take home to drink. We want every customer to feel like a kid in a candy store.
Michael Dupuy, Owner
After a decade working retail and wholesale across the state, an opportunity appeared in Jamaica Plain. With years of guidance from colleagues, support from family and friends, and a warm welcome from the business community and residents of Jamaica Plain, Streetcar proudly opened its doors on July 1, 2012. Eight years on, I'm still crazy about riesling, gamay, nebbiolo, ...who's thirsty?
When Dave's not busy stocking the Streetcar shelves with the best beers he can find, he keeps busy dropping heavy bass licks, taking photos of his cats, and generally getting his money's worth all over town.
Heather joined the team in May 2019 having just sold the wine shop on the Cape she started with her husband in 2010. She was also an early-stage partner at Sophia's Grotto in Roslindale. Truly, she is the most overqualified part time retail associate in the history of the universe.
Dan started at Streetcar in October 2019, with his only request that he not have to make deliveries. He's now our main driver. Sorry Dan. In addition to wine and beer, Dan is a big fan of kombucha.
