Tough place to rate. On the one hand, the selection was quite interesting. 25% of the taps were devoted to various imperial stouts. 14/21 (75%) of the taps were devoted to beers of 7%ABV or stronger. They could use a little more diversity I think. However, they had Schlenkerla fastenbier when I was there, and it was gorgeous, easily the best thing on tap. The vibe was more yuppie than expected, not the typical beer crowd. Staff on the ball on a very busy evening. No one was eating, surprisingly. All the beers are served in a long-stemmed wine glass decorated with pine trees, no matter what the beer style. I did not like this at all, but I suppose it fits with their commitment to stocking mainly beers of >9% ABV: wine strength.The bottle list is short but very well-curated! So overall, I like that they have a vision and that vision is well-executed. This is basically a wine bar for beer lovers.

Nothing to fault at Torst. Modern bar that feels as though the place has only been opened for business yesterday rather than two years now. Sleek marble white bar with backing mirror used for the hand written draft list. Some Evil Twin stuff, Carton, Maine, De Molen... Nothing too crazy on my visit but some fun beers regardless. The bottle list was insanely priced. Simple food menu of small plates but felt pricey for what I got in front of me. The bartender was great - happy to pour tasters, chatty and had good rapport with the punters. It’s well worth at least one visit, although these days I think I mostly prefer more cosy pubs to drink a beer in.

A pretty good beer bar ni a good location in Brooklyn area. Great selection of locals and some rarities. The atmosphere is not my favorite but can understand its attraction in the location it is in. They have a small but good food menu overall. The fact they do different size pours is a big plus. The bottle selection has some goodies on it for the beer geek. Overall a good beer bar to visit while in brooklyn

I have been here twice and enjoyed both visits a lot. It is a rather small place, at least by Texas standards, that has a modern Scandinavian-style interior. I sat at the bar both visits and the bartenders were very friendly and helpful. I tried some great beers both times and I kind of like the standard signiture glassware that all the beer comes in. I ordered food during both visits and ejoyed the interesting offerings. Had my first fiddlehead fern here, which came on my cheese plate. Who knew people ate fern. Anyway, great place that I will try to get back to next time I’m in the area.

Minimalist Nordic cool interior, 21 taps on today, with 5 sheets of bottles. The bread is fantastic

Quite weird neighborhood. Cozy Scandinavian interior which means that chairs near the desk are very bad. I was expecting clinic hospital style place but I was wrong. Many good beers but prices are high naturally.

Unassuming entranced, walked by twice. Large nice bar and efficient seating split into tons of small tables. Service knew their stuff and very geek friendly. Selection was big and interesting, with lots of imports. No flights but small pours. Prices are on the higher side, but worth it. I didn’t eat. Great place and worth the hype.

kraddel  (206) some beerplace , Belgium | February 11, 2015
Selection was very mediocer when I visited . Service was nice, atmosphere was very cool , clean . The bar itself looks very fancy , very detailed . Lacks of cosyness though . I expected much Evil twins , and They did have that, but none of the wanted ones . Instead they had their pilsner , some low-abv mediocer beers , etc . Also some other brewery’s , but cots was very high compared to other bars . nevertheless , I seemed to have missed out on the bottle menu , and the food . So I’ll re-visit again and probably my rating would rise .
