Like in München Bier International will be celebrating their third OctoBIERfest weekend with live music, pig roast, lederhosen and obviously tons of bier.

It’s always a party at Bier but this weekend has started off and will continue to be extra fun.

Swing by and have a bier, or two, or…..

Happy Oktoberfest to all of our friends at Bier International from Harlem Condo Life.

Have no clue how to celebrate Oktoberfest in Harlem?  Look to Harlem Park to Park to assist. They offer plenty of options starting tomorrow (October 1)! Harlem Park to Park Initiative is a merchants association formed in 2009 to encourage and sustain commerce throughout the upper part of Manhattan, known as Harlem.

From October 1 to October 31 it is Restaurant and Retail Month where participating restaurants will offer three course prix fixe menus. Local shops that are participating in Oktoberfest in Harlem will offer select retail items for $20.10. Harlem Park to Park is co-hosting the Harlem Harvest Festival October 9 at St. Nicholas Avenue and 116th Street. And on October 28th end the fest with a Harlem Restaurant and Bar Crawl along 8th Avenue, i.e. Frederick Douglass Blvd.

So there are plenty of options to celebrate Oktoberfest in Harlem. I definitely plan to partake in one or more of these events. Hope to see you around!

This place is a goldmine! Owners Chris Pollok and Oujmane Keita have delivered to our Harlem neighborhood a new watering hole that since day one has hit the ground running.  You may have been following our updates

on bier international 6 months prior to it’s opening (thanks to HCL’s HarlemGal) and how we have been highly anticipating this place.  We are excited that it is now open and already a new hot spot in the neighborhood.  Very diverse clientele from the after work suit and tie crowd to casual shorts and flip flops  just stopping by for a cold beer.  During the day  you get families with kids along with a solid Saturday & Sunday brunch crowd.  The brunch menu  has Crab Cakes Benedict for $12, Buttermilk Pancakes with assorted berries for $7, and a Norwegian Smoked Salmon Omelet for $10 just to name a few.  Many evenings it is already overcrowded with its front wall of open windows allowing people to spill into the sidewalk.  Very inviting and welcoming atmosphere.  I walk by it every night on my way home and have yet to see it uncrowded.  Not only can you get a large assortment of imported beers on tap (or by bottle) but they also provide a minimal selection of nice wines for the non beer drinkers in the house.

When they first opened, 5 weeks ago, the food started off with a minimal selection.  It has now expanded to a full menu of small entrees and a healthy variety of appetizers thanks to Chef Adriano.  The food is very reasonably priced between $7 to $12.  Each plate has a beer suggestion to pair it with.  Very smart move as I noticed looking around at all the tables and the bar that almost everyone was eating something.   They have a nice cheese platter that you can tailor to a selection of cheeses you like.  The also have an excellent Quacamole and Chips appetizer.  I highly recommend the sliced Brauts with Sauerkraut served without bread.  Goes nicely along with a couple of cold ones.  Also very good is their Wild Mushroom Quesadilla.  It’s priced very reasonably but the group I was with all agreed they should offer two sizes.  A small size for one or two to share, and a larger size that several people could share.  This was the tables favorite with the group I was with.  The Steak Burgers are also great.  Very hearty and come with french fries.  They also have Shaved Parmesan and Truffle hand-cut Fries which are quite tasty.  Also noteworthy the Catfish Tacos and the Fig & Pig (porchetta) Salad.  The Fig & Pig Salad is only available during Oktobierfest.  See full dinner menu.  The Bier Steak Burger along with a couple other new items have been added to the menu.

This place has a great vibe and is already thriving.  Everytime I’ve gone so far both of the owners have been present, very involved and mingling with the customers.  This is a sure recipe to a successful establishment.  The staff are equally as welcoming and friendly.

Bier International is the new kid on the block and as far as popularity goes, just pop in and see for yourself.

Enjoy Oktoberfest from September 18 – October 3.  Bier International

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!
