New Beer Friday, Expanded Liquor Edition (Oct 23)

Preamble by Steve Siciliano

If you have been in Siciliano's Market over the past few weeks you may have noticed that we have done some rearranging behind the sales counter and we managed to find an additional twenty-four feet of shelf space that can be dedicated to our ever expanding liquor selection.

It certainly didn't take long for liquor buyer John Barecki to fill every inch of that space with a lineup of new and interesting rums, ryes, bourbons, single malt scotches and high end tequilas.

If you're a fan of fine liquors make sure you take a few minutes to check out the new arrangement the next time you're in the store.
