We’ve learned that the much anticipated beer hall in LIC—Bierocracy—will open its doors on Thursday, November 12. Beer lovers rejoice! This is gonna be good.

The restaurant is big on tradition—here’s the deal on the beer:

Bierocracy will be using unusual Old World methods of tapping beers, providing even the geekiest of beer geeks something they may not be familiar with – the traditional special pours of the Czech republic.

These pours include Mliko which produces a milky-white beer foam that eventually settles into a regular pilsner with slight altered flavors; Tvrdá pěna, or hard foam, which produces a cloud of thick, long-lasting foam that sits on top of a lager and requires a special pouring technique to achieve; and the Řezané pivo, or cut beer, made by tapping a dark lager directly on top of a light pilsner, resulting in a stunning, two-toned pint.

Carefully selected European imports will be on tap along with interesting local brews, ciders, and radlers (beer mixed with soda).

Along with the food, there will be a number of dishes that exhibit a modern take on traditional Central European food, but also look for pub grab like pretzels and sausages. The space was apparently designed by a group of Czechs and Slovaks—does this mean Bohemian Hall has some serious competition in Bierocracy?

The space itself will be 4,000 square feet that will accommodate around 200 people. You can spend time there Monday through Wednesday 4pm to 1am; Thursday 4pm to 2am; Friday and Saturday 3pm to 4am, and Sunday 3pm to 1am.

Will there be wine or liquor for the beer averse that still want to hang out (i.e., my wife)?

Did you go? This was the only website reporting it was open that day. Twitter has been dead for months, Facebook dead since September.. The website has no relevant information.

Surprising for a grand opening…
