Though the initial excitement has worn off, this place is solid for three observed reasons: the bottle list, the tap list, and the atmosphere. I wish I could add parking. The bottle list because of special European availability, though no longer the European only Cantillons. The tap list because of the great selections of Europe and the USA as well as a good and not overwhelming selection of the Evil Twins. The lower comfortable bar and comfortable major league service. Excitement will surely pick up with the upcoming restaurant.

Great place. Too expensive, but you almost get your moneyís worth. Our servers were excellent, both friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely selection of beers. Deserves the credit and hype itís been given.

TÝrst really is a tasty slice of Danish craft beer bar set in a Brooklyn backdrop. Inside is clean, white, shiny and yet also dimly lit. We visited at opening during the week, so it was just us a couple of others. They have 21 taps from some of the worldís finest breweries Ė Evil Twin (of course), Grassroots, Hill Farmstead, Other Half, Logsdon etc. I feared that perhaps there was gonna be more European stuff I had already had, but I was pleasantly surprised. All beers served at perfect temperature in cool glassware. The bottle selection is very nice, if a touch pricey. Reminds me of the Mikkeller Vesterbro bottle menu. Great service and overall experience. Deserves its reputation as a top beer spot.

Popped in here with puzzl, feedmecookies, maxxdaddy jessbnjess and j12601 after spending a day at Spuyten and Fette Sau. This is easily the most beautiful bar Iíve ever been in. Custom designed furniture with lots of contrasting wood motifs and carved/polished fixtures. The beer is definitely on the expensive end, but itís a very well-chosen list and the servers were professional and friendly. Had a loaf of the rye bread (which was amazing - but could have used some sort of butter or savoury spread) and enjoyed it. This is a world class spot - no doubt about that, I hope they can continue with their winning streak.

A great place that lives up to the hype. Arrived around 3, dead to start which is nice, got to chat up the staff and learn about the co2 system. Very cool interior. The staff was not only passionate about the bar, but knowledgable about beer in a genuine way. The draft list was outstanding with Mo, Zymatore variant, and some cool Evil Twins. The bottle list was extensive but the real gems are all the different Evil Twin beers. Roughly 20 of them, and 6 pretty rare and unique stout and barley wine variants. The bar food was great, I was drooling over the chicken sandwich. The hidden restaurant was an even cooler set up. Very impressed. Thereís a reason a ton of tourists where there by the time I left. This is a true destination spot.

PRBeer  (496) Parsippany, New Jersey | May 5, 2013
I visited Torst today & enjoyed my time there very much. This is a very original craftbeer bar (only open 1 1/2 months)...with a Danish theme...which makes sense since the owner Jeppe is Danish. He is also a gypsy brewer and many of his beers are available on tap & in the bottle (and can) under the Evil Twin & Westbrook names. He brews in SC, CT, & Denmark among other places. The bartender Anthony was very helpful which was important given the large selection of unusual & hard to find beers & Torst not offering flights. That meant I had to order 8oz glasses to have even a chance of sampling a variety of the beers (vs the 14oz pours). I started with a very unique Evil Twin Bikini Beer...believe it or not a 2.7% IPA! I then moved to the Italiano Tipopils Pilsner at 5%...nice and dry...followed by the Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA at 6.5%...my favorite of the day. I finished with a can of Westbrook IPA at 6.8% that Jeppe has made in the brewery of that name...very nice European style IPA. Although both the draft & bottle lists are impressive...keep in mind many of these beers you will likely not have heard of given they are from gypsy brewers (Jeppe and others I presume). Thatís part of the fun of course but I recommend several visits as well as leaning on one of the bartenders. Although they have cheese & meat boards...the real menu & Danish restaurant will open up in a back room in the near future (or so I was told). Although this is a great place...especially so shortly into its inception...I think the 100 ratings a number of people have given are way too generous (or enthusiastic). A place doesnít get a 100 rating out of the gate...it needs to earn it over time...& prove that their success is not a fluke. I also canít give a perfect score to value. This place is on the expensive side...& thatís OK given its NYC & unusual beers...but still not a 10 in this category...same thing with the ambiance...really nice...but a perfect score? Finally...& this is just me personally...before I give a 100 rating I would usually like to see a hand pump, or a cask ale...or just a little more character & history to the place. Still...great new craftbeer establishment...definitely worth a special trip.

Continuing on our beery trek we walked to Torst, the bar representation of Evil Twin Brewing. As anticipated they had an excellent, but spendy tap list. One nice thing is the ability to order smaller pours of the beers that are stronger or more expensive. I have a theory that the artwork on their custom glassware has hidden measurements in it, but others said the servers were pretty much eyeballing it so who knows. I took a quick look at the bottle list but at the prices they were charging there was nothing sufficiently attention grabbing to tempt me away from the draft list today. That might change on a return visit though. Decor is nice enough, the bar itself looks pretty slick, the mirrored tap lists can be hard to read at times (or maybe thatís just my eyesight? Who knows). Music is pretty loud. The mostly communal seating is fine - Iím not personally a fan but it makes sense for such a small space. We were lucky that two nice gentleman swapped their seats with us so we could sit with our group of friends. The problem when it is busy is that the long narrow space means that much of the standing room is the same space as the "ordering a drink" space, so there are not a ton of places to stand that are not in the way. Fortunately it cleared out just as we got our drinks so that worked in our favour. The service was a bit abrupt, which is mostly forgivable for how busy they were, but anecdotally that seems to be the standard. I liked the place overall, the quality of the taps means that I will definitely be back despite any minor failings (many of which are personal preference/just me being a cranky old fart) but like many other places I would like to come back at a quieter time if possible.

First review. Amazing world class bar. Lovely wood carvings and atmosphere. Reminds me of the interior of an old Scandinavian log cabin. Beer selection is top notch. Very focused on quality. Some really rare brews. Obviously some of the rarer beers are pricey, which is to be expected. Generally the prices are decent. Attentive and gracious staff. Restaurant portion opens in a few months. Great job Jeppe!

Visited this dimly lit quite posh looking marble palace on a quiet Friday, 3-5 PM or so. Surprisingly slow service considering the number of guests, but at least they were super friendly and the guy at the bar were knowledgeable enough for our needs. Got a wonderful duck confit sandwich and a bunch of lovely beers from kegs. Had a couple of bottled ones as well. The bottle list is the most impressive about this place I think, but since we didnít have much time we didnít get to ruin ourselves exploring it. Not that the prices are ridiculous in any way, but I bet we could easily drink for several hundred dollars without even touching the expensive ones. Anyway, Iím glad we spent the time on the subway to get back and forth, itís a place every beer nerd coming to NYC should visit, but please make sure to look at the bottle list. At least on our visit the tap list was a bit focused on imp stouts and Jolly Pumpkin. I love both, but with 21 taps Iíd prefer if more than half of them were not either Imp stouts or JP.

Oh my! From the decor to the tap handles to the tap list to the staff, this place has incredible taste. Canít wait to return to NYC when they have food. Definitely world class. Keep up the great work!
