Beer lovers will experience brews Central European style at a new Long Island City venue that uses “old-world methods of tapping beer.”

Bierocracy, located at 12-23 Jackson Ave., seeks to mirror the feel of a communal beer hall and will serve several traditional, special pours native to the Czech Republic, according to a press release. The Courier reported that the beer hall was scheduled to open in March but structural issues with the building delayed the opening.

Beer options will include a Mliko, a beer that produces a milky-white beer foam that settles into a pilsner, and Tvrdá pěna, which translates to hard foam and “produces a cloud of thick, long-lasting foam that sits on top of a lager and requires a special pouring technique to achieve,” the release said.

Řezané pivo, or cut beer, is achieved by tapping a dark lager directly on top of a light pilsner for a two-toned beer. Bierocracy will also serve local brews, ciders and radlers, and food items will include pretzels and sausages.

“The reason why we got into Long Island City is because it is an up-and-coming area and, quite frankly, it’s lacking something like this,” said Tom Rajic, an owner of Bierocracy, in a previous interview with The Courier. “We feel this is the right place.”

The 4,000-square-foot beer hall was originally scheduled to open on Thursday, Nov. 12, but according to a spokesperson for Bierocracy, that date has been changed to next Wednesday or Thursday.

The space will seat approximately 200 people and will be open Monday through Wednesday 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Thursday 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Friday and Saturday 3 p.m. to 4 a.m. and Sunday 3 p.m. to 1 a.m.
