Pros: Outrageously good Evil Twin & other selection; knowledgeable, friendly staff; cool space, limited but quality menu
Cons: can get very crowded with scene-y types; best during the weekday/off hours.

Destination beer bar, by far. Excellent service, tap selection, bottle list, ambiance and feel. One of the most beautiful looking bars, as well. All recognition due to Jeppe, Dan, Jon, and the rest of the TÝrst family. Would never pass a chance of re-visiting!

Finally, a world class beer bar in NYC! Youíve likely read plenty about Torst already, with its ridiculous bottle list and specialty taps you canít find anywhere else. Can be a tad pricey, but hey, this *is* New York.
This is a giant step in the right direction -- hereís hoping NYC becomes a legit beer destination to compete with Portland, SF, SD, and Vermont.

Wow... First word that came to mind when walking into Torst after waiting outside in a snow storm for an hour on opening day! I would catch pnemonia to come back!! :)
This place was incredible all around. Atmosphere, selection, staff everything was perfect.
Not every day or even in a lifetime are you able to sit at a bar and order some of the worlds best and rarest lambics in one sitting. It was an experience I will never forget and I cannot wait to go back!

Imagine going into a wine bar, ordering a glass of Bordeaux, and having it served at 40f. No, right? But thats excactly what a lot of beer bars out there do, you order a 12% imperial stout and they serve it in a pint glass ice cold. Torst doesnít, but thatís just one of the reasons Torst is better than most. Excellent service, beer list out of this world, bar food that is perfect with beer and a chef who clearly understands quality. What more to ask for?

Where do I start with this one. Ambiance is very interesting, small tight bar, small woden long tables with tap list written on mirrors above the taps. Very hipster esque. Service was good for how crowded it was, and friendly bartenders. Selection is just off the charts between the one off tap stuff, awesoem bottle list, and even some surprises not listed on the menu i;ve never seen a list like this before, ever! I thoguht value was very good considering the quality of beer that is being offered on tap, and the fact that everything can be had in 8 oz portions, mostly for $5, which allows many ticks to be had without breaking the bank. Overall an absolute must stop if in NYC area.

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.

I had the pleasure to spend several nights at TÝrst during the opening weekend. I was blown away by the experience. Truly the highlight of my beer bar visiting life.
The style is fantastic. It is a perfect combination of old world, rustic charm incredibly balanced with modern finishes. Inviting and comfortable yet classy and upscale without pretension all at the same time. That combination is rarely achieved but TÝrst has done it.
The service was spot on. Let me say again: this was during opening weekend. Most places struggle a bit in this area when they are new and still working out the kinks. However TÝrst made everything seem effortless. The staff was friendly, engaging and eager to please as well as educate.
The selection is unparalleled. There is no better place in the world right now for the true beer geek. The draft list is brilliantly curated with endless rarities, one-offs, and fantastic selections at very reasonable prices. Many draft selections are available in two different sizes allowing for more sampling. I have never seen so many beers on tap that Iíve never had before. The bottle list is absolutely stunning. Filled with incredible offerings that most have only heard of but never seen in person. Rarities doesnít begin to describe the selection. The best, most sought after beers in the world nonchalantly listed on the menu. It takes your breath away.
The food plates were delicious! When the full restaurant opens I have no doubt that it will be just as world class as the front bar.
I have traveled all of the world, specifically for beer. I have been to all the "best" beer bars in numerous countries. The bottom line here is that nothing compares to TÝrst. This is the best beer bar anywhere in the world as far as I am concerned. The care and knowledge that the owners have put in to the creation of this concept is evident. They have clearly spent many years developing the kinds of relationships with brewers necessary to accomplish the selection they offer.
This is an absolute must visit. Plan to stay a while.

Let me just start by saying this is an excellent bar. First and foremost the draft selection when i visited was outstanding. Seems like the plan is to avoid tap takeovers and while that may disappoint some tickers, it really made my day. From foreign drafts that i havenít seen since Stockholm to excellent US lines; i was blown away. One of the real defining moments in the bar was never having a down moment despite not one TV. I will say a drawback was the bottle list was pricey and some of those gems really get up there. That aside the bottle list really was world class so if you donít mind spending a bit i have no doubt that youíd be floored. Additionally i will say they are on par for the most part of any other world class bar so not sure i can fault much for that. They had a small selection of meat and cheese platters that i did not sample but from what i could see from others they looked above average and fairly priced. It was a packed bar and while the service was friendly (at the bar only no table service), sometimes it took a while to get a draft. Though to be honest I did order a few at a time, as seemed to be the trend, and i can imagine as a new place figuring out adequate staffing is always a challenge. Overall; it really is an outstanding establishment, if you are remotely close its a must visit. Cheers!

TÝrst is as close as it comes to beer bar perfection.
An unassuming exterior opens up to a very sleek, simple, slightly rustic, somewhat Nordic interior. The tap set-up is pretty neat and well organized, and allows for exceptionally quick, efficient service, despite the place always being crowded.
The selection is unmatched. Thereís seemingly always something special on tap, as well as a number of unique offerings. The bottle list is as impressive as it gets. If youíre in New York and you want to sample some rare bottles, TÝrst is the place you want to be. Just be prepared to pay for it.
If youíre visiting from out of town, this should be your number one destination when it comes to beer, hands down. TÝrst is a special place.
