This big Eastern European beer hall has lots of communal tables filled with groups watching sports on projector screens, and is a good spot to drink beer and eat nachos while playing drinking games with strangers. In terms of food, there are bar snacks like buffalo wings and giant pretzels, as well as mains like pork schnitzel and sausage platters. The bacon cheeseburger with crispy onions is good, but know that you’ll almost certainly wind up with melted cheese and aioli on multiple articles of your clothing. Bierocracy is on Jackson Ave a block from the 7 and G trains, so keep it in mind if you’re looking for an alternative to Radegast, Spritzenhaus, and Houston Hall.
