The Long Island City bar Bierocracy will celebrate New York City beer week with unique beers on tap and a beer pouring class.

New York City beer week runs from Feb. 19 to Feb. 28 and throughout the event, Bierocracy, located at 12-23 Jackson Ave., will put special beers, including many from local breweries, on tap.

On Monday, the Long Island City-based craft brewery Big Alice Brewing will feature three beers – a white stout, an IPA and a sweet beer called Gunpowder Tea Rye – exclusively at Bierocracy.

On Tuesday, LIC Beer Project takes over the taps, with a Belgian-inspired ale, a golden pale ale and “table sour” which is being left up to participants to review.

Then on Thursday, Albany-based Remarkable Liquids will present a coffee porter and two styles of IPA.

Bierocracy will also host a beer pouring class on Wednesday.

Attendees will pay $15 and try three pours each. They will use an old fashioned faucet and receive instruction from Bryan Panzica of Pilsner Urquell USA and the Bierocracy “biertenders.”

Customers will learn how to pour Hladinka, the classic head pour, as well as Mliko, a wet, drinkable foam which quickly turns into beer, and Rezane, a European version of the “half and half” using pale and dark lagers.

The customer with the best pour will win a Pilsner Urquell cap or a retro T-shirt.
