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

If you like evil twin then its worth a visit about 20 taps... a few interesting guest beers but more than half were house beers... Reasonable prices which incl: small, medium,and large pours. .

Has a fabulous selection of beer on tap and a great selection of bottles. The staff are friendly, although their WiFi is screwy. A bit difficult to see the sign above the door and the air-conditioning was set to super coll for some reason. Despite the few drawbacks was an amazing experience.

Wacky almost gothic joint in Brooklyn. Could walk right by it and not know it’s here. Friendly and well informed staff. Nice bottle and tap selection. Well worth a visit.

Beautifully designed bar with a good selection of brews, a lot from Evil Twin, not sure if thats a good thing or not, guess it depends on how much of a fan of Evil twin you are. Food was good, but nothing to get really excited about. Overall, I can see why this rates so highly, and it is well deserved, would be one of my first stops in New york. The only down side for me was the obnoxiously loud music.

Very stylish long marble bar and low wooden coffee tables. 21 taps very good selection, half-hearted food menu, good atmosphere knowledgeable and warm bartender. Place to be if you’re in Brooklyn!

Place rating number 1200!

Visited May 27, 2014.

I didn’t know what to expect besides hipster when I walked in. How similar was this going to be to the Mikkeller bar in SF? I think this came first so I guess it would be a situation of the Mikkeller bar being like this. Anyway, they’re not that similar really. This place of course had a good number of Evil Twin beers available and plenty of guest beers. The bartender was nice enough to pour some free tasters. In the end I went with a full glass of one of the hoppy options. Pretty cool glass that this stuff comes in. The place is dimly lit and kind of quiet. Prices are of course sky high but what do you expect. I can only imagine what the restaurant portion is like. On the subject of food I enjoyed a steak salad. The meet was cooked fairly rare, which I was OK with. What bothered me was the damn arugula. Give it a rest. And while we’re at it (note to all chefs): please stop using dandelion greens. They are not pleasant (see my rating of DBGB). It didn’t distract too much from the overall quality of the food but I’m officially over arugula.

The service was friendly despite my obvious disdain for hipsters. On that subject, I think I’m going to relent on the war against the uniqueness of looking like everyone else. It’s really just a fashion style now, not so much a philosophy so what do I care? Cool place overall and I’d recommend it to anyone in/around Brooklyn.

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 that’s just my eyesight? Who knows). Music is pretty loud. The mostly communal seating is fine - I’m 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.

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.
