Burns’ Night is our annual, extraordinary celebration of the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns (1759-1796). Celebrated on, or about, the Bard’s birthday, January 25th, the event is ideal for brightening up the cold, wet and dark St. Louis winter evenings. Just before Tom Schlafly reads his poem, our Scotch Ale is escorted in by a fancy procession of pipers and drummers. Naturally, we cook up some extraordinarily delicious Scottish food, and round out the festivities with the best Celtic musicians in St. Louis.
Always a fun, loose evening, the event encompasses the whole of life’s emotions in one evening.
5:00 p.m. – Scottish Fare
Come on back for your favorite Scottish dishes, like Scotch eggs, haggis, shepherd’s pie, neeps & tatties, Cock-a-Leekie soup and more...each a perfect match with delicious Schlafly Scotch Ale.
6:00 p.m. – Scotch Ale and Haggis
Don’t miss the pomp and circumstance of the parade through the restaurant with the piping in of the Scotch Ale and the presentation of the haggis. Followed by poems and songs from atop the bar. (Kilt peeping at your own peril.)
