The Board of Appeal yesterday approved a plan by Walden Local Meat to add wine and beer to the meat it plans to sell at 316 Shawmut Ave., at Union Park.
Meat could go on sale in early November, attorney Nick Zozula told the board. Wine and beer will probably take a bit longer to be stocked, because owner Charlie Cummings also needs to apply for a license from the Boston Licensing Board for the space, formerly a laundromat.
Zozula said Walden Local, which currently only delivers New England-sourced meat shares to the Boston area, hopes the small - roughly 60 square feet - wine and beer space will mean "a fuller customer experience" for patrons wishing to pair their meat with a local craft beer or bottle of wine. He added the meat will be butchered off site.
Nobody spoke against the idea.
