I walked by bier international last night and I couldn’t help but notice there was a sizable sign taped to their window informing passersby of a public hearing on April 6, 2011. The subject line gives an address of 2099 Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. Hmmm, that’s confusing since bier is located at 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd. However, it is the words right next to APPLICATION that are key! Apparently, bier international has applied for sidewalk cafe status, which would include 16 tables and 34 seats. If you look back at the renderings of the Harlem hot spot, they have always planned for some degree of outdoor seating. This request should come as no surprise. The owners are simply following through on their vision for the place. Good for them.
The flyer gives a web address on where you can voice your opinion on this subject. Go there and share your thoughts on the matter or feel free to tell us right here on HCL what you think about bier international applying for and potentially receiving a sidewalk cafe!

Harlem’s new premium beer joint, bier international, has hit the ground running since it opened several weeks ago. Bier first started serving quality beer (their strawberry beer is my favorite) and then came the starter and full menu. Soon after, they launched a brunch menu, which is offered on the weekends. Up next is Oktoberfest at bier. They are starting the celebration this Saturday! So if you want to join in on the celebration, stop by bier international, located at 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd., in Harlem this weekend!

If you did not get out-of-town this Labor Day weekend and you’re wondering who is serving brunch all three days in Harlem, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, we have a suggestion for you! Bier international in Harlem is now serving brunch on the weekends in addition to dinner. Here is their complete menu!
If you have not gone by bier international, located at 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd., I highly recommend it. This place has jumped right out of the opening gate and doing brisk business practically every evening. I myself am a fan of the strawberry beer. Try it. It’s delicious. And I now see from their menu they have incorporated their strawberry beer into their bunch menu, i.e. bierlini! Yum.
So stop on by bier international this weekend for bunch. I just might see you there! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

How many ways can you say beer in a different language? And can you spell it out in that language as well? I was recently asked these questions by the owners and designer of the upcoming bier international in Harlem, which will be located at 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd. I answered the questions honestly. I only knew how to say beer in one other language and spell it out. I said “cerveza!” The folks at bier international, which I learned the name of the beer pub is not capitalized, said that was perfect and if I wanted to write it on their big, white wall that will be the home to the word “beer” in multiple languages. If you look at the rendering of the upcoming beer joint, it shows writing on the wall.
Any how, I said yes. I would love too! I was given the fun privilege of writing the word “cerveza” in brownish colored paint high up on their wall. I was a bit nervous writing on their freshly painted wall, but I did it and did not mess up! So when you head on over to bier international for a brewski and you see the word “cerveza” on the wall, you know the story behind it.
I hope bier international in Harlem opens up soon. I am getting thirsty!

A month ago, we mentioned that 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd is expected to be the home of Bier International, Harlem’s first beer garden; and that we didn’t think it would open at the end of May. The opening did not happen in May. However, we’re happy to report we have seen work activity on site recently. Over the Memorial Day weekend, we saw workers outside of the property and one side of the rolling steel doors up.
From the photos below, there is something happening inside the retail space. However, the real question is what type of deadline are these workers on? We asked when the beer garden in Harlem is scheduled to open, one replied “a month from now.”
What a complete bummer-if in fact that is the case! With the 2010 World Cup starting on June 11 and lasting for several weeks, that is prime beer drinking time. Maybe the worker on site meant to say “we’re opening in two weeks for the World Cup or midway through the World Cup.” We are keep our fingers crossed hoping that one of those scenarios is the case! If you have heard otherwise, chime in!
