Cool, spotless and not your typical beer hangout. Very interesting selection on tap when I visited. Lots of Evil Twin at very reasonable prices. And the fab Limfjorsdporter, too. Good selection of sours. Very loud music, but it was right up my alley: Human League, New Order, Joy Division. The original post-punk seems to be in vogue all over New York. Not many visitors, though, but it was a rainy night.

Love coming in to see what’s coming next...that is if you can find the door. Love the minimalistic feel of the marble and wooden tap handles. Staff is quite knowledgeable and friendly....They also play their own spotify...so ask if you don’t like the music.

Beautiful bar. Fantastic build.
Food options are tasty. Service was acceptable not exceptional. Crowd kind varies depending on the time of day.
Fantastic selection of beer. 20 taps half were Evil Twin (who own the place?)
*it was freezing cold when i was in there last as in we were all bundled up. Didnt seem to bother anyone though since the beer is soooo good.
Must go if you are a beer person and are visiting from out of town.

Resonably priced for Brooklyn. Extra hipster vibe. European (italian) heavy tap list.

Its funny you can take Danish style out of of Denmark but you can you replicate it in the US? Beer great. Design pretty stunning. Ambiance - yeah well - if you like thrash music loud and if you like disdain from the barman if you dare to ask for the sound to be turned down to match the decor - well perhaps think twice. Pity, we’d so looked forward to visiting. Would go again if bar staff polished their act to match what the owner intended. Grunge is not always cool.

Torst has 21 taps that are filled with some of the most special offerings I have ever seen. Most of it is Euro, but think Euro craft (Evil Twin heavy, Birrificio), not just standard Belgian. There is a bit of American offering on draft, and a lot more American available on the bottle list. At first, Torst feels like it could be a snotty beer geek bar, but it’s honestly just a fun, nice place. When a keg ran out, the bartender got on a step ladder and erased the old beer (listed above the bar) and everyone was cheering him on as he wrote the name of the new rare beer being tapped. Also, one cannot forget about the tap system. Every single draft line is temperature controlled independently and has its own set mixture of CO2 and Nitro. They’re serious. But they’re fun. MUST VISIT.

Really a great spot that is well deserving of all of the hype. Clean and homey atmosphere, with plenty of great tap options. Always something unique that you won’t find anywhere else. A bit pricey, but I always leave feeling like a got my moneys worth. A must stop for those visiting NYC.

Visited on 8/13/13.
A: The vibe of the place is pretty cool but basic...nothing flashy or out of the ordinary, a very clean and straight forward bar environment.
Q: the quality of the beers is really good because they dont carry any dogs on tap or in bottles. Very solid selection on both ends.
S: It was a tuesday night when we went and other than a mild surge around 10pm, the bartenders were very attentive, outgoing, and somewhat knowledgeable about what was on tap.
S: Evil Twin Heavy for obvious reseaons although didnt see too much on tap that could not be purchased in local bottles shops. I guess I went in with the stigma about their awesome tap selection that other people had talked about but just didnt find to be the mind blowing experience as previously mentioned. Found it a lot easier to order off of the bottle list than tap list.
V: Paying NYC prices on taps, bottles are obviously higher and over priced in some instances.
Overall, a cool place to hang out and maybe find an occassional Evil Twin release...on of the best places in Brooklyn.
