Bier International is Harlem’s first beer garden. Serving international and domestic beers paired with international dishes, they offer over 15 beers on tap and 30 by the bottle. Ousmane Keita and Chris Pollok brought the Bier Garden to Harlem in 2009 when they noticed the need for one in the community.

They serve several different varieties, including a daily special, and they suggest pairing it with Palma Luca.
