If you’re a fan of Doctor Who, you’ve likely heard of The Way Station in Brooklyn, NY, owned and operated by Andy Heidel. Named one of the best sci-fi bars by Buzzfeed, Time Out, Village Voice, and more, it’s complete with a TARDIS bathroom and themed cocktails. Andy Heidel’s upcoming book, The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy (St. Martin’s Griffin), has more of the themed cocktails his patrons know and love.

Nerd culture is currently at its height – superhero shows are some of the most popular on TV today, Comic Cons happen all around the country, and even Star Wars is releasing several new films over the next few years. This is the go-to book for anyone who loves nerdy pop culture (and booze). All of the cocktails have been created and field-tested by Heidel, so you can be assured these drinks will quench whatever thirst you’ve got, and there’s something here for all fans, from Agents of Shield to X-Men.
