Celebrate St. Andrew's Day at Room 11

Last week I wrote about Room 11's new Monday beer series. Today's version is a bit different: it's St. Andrew's Day, the national day of Scotland (like St. Patrick's Day for Ireland). I've always thought it was weird that nobody celebrated St. Andrew's Day, even though so many folks are Scottish.

But thankfully Room 11 is doing something, starting at 5 pm:
We'll have guest tap Brooklyn Winter Ale, a Scotch-style Ale (think dark rich and malty) on
draft while it lasts. From 8:30 to 10 pm Scottish gin Hendrick's will be offering free samples and free shoeshines! We'll also have Scotch whiskey and cocktail specials from Compass Box and we'll declare the winner of the Highland Bitters Scottish Cocktail Smackdown. Will the Mel Gibson (Hendrick's Martini with house-made Highland Bitters and a house-pickled onion) or the Liam Neeson (Compass Box Asyla with sweet and dry vermouth and house-made Highland Bitters) emerge victorious? Cast your vote by ordering one then feast on some delicious Scottish food specials from Chef Ben Gilligan.
