UPPER EAST SIDE — This "Flux Capacitor" might not take you back in time, but it'll churn out the "perfect" brew.

Treadwell Park — a graffiti-covered beer hall boasting 20 draught beers, a game room and a carbonation machine called the "Flux Capacitor" — is coming to 1125 First Ave. near East 62nd Street on Dec. 2, according to spokeswoman Sarah Gartner.

Aside from a rotating selection of 20 craft beers and ciders on tap, Treadwell Park's 25-foot-long bar will come with a custom-made "Flux Capacitor" that lets bartenders control the carbonation and temperature of each beer — ensuring a "scientifically engineered" and "perfect beer every time," Gartner said.

Treadwell is one of just a handful of bars, including the Financial District's Clinton Hall, in the country that uses the device, she added.

The drink menu will also include artisanal cocktails and beer floats using ice cream flavors like sea salt caramel, bacon, chocolate and blue cheese.

The food will be just as diverse. Offerings include Schaller & Weber's bratwurst sausage served on an onion roll with German potato salad; in-house smoked brisket and chicken wings; Morrocan pastries filled with ground lamb and mint; and Korean-style kimchee pancakes.

The hall itself features a fireplace, a dozen television screens, and a game room with ping-pong tables and pinball machines, Gartner said.

Owners Richard Cohn, Andrew Emmet, and Abraham Merchant of Merchants Hospitality put up a count-down timer on their new beer hall's website, leading to its opening.

Treadwell Park will be open weekdays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., and 11 a.m. 2 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, including brunch and dinner.
