Loved this place! Visited about a week after opening- I would describe the decor and ambiance as very Kubrick esque- the bright, small spot lights gave the place a camera flare type feel, and I dug it big time- It was like having a beer at the bar where the Shining was filmed- enough about that- the beer was great- although I consider myself knowledgable, I didnít know nor did I hear of 75 percent of the beers there- the game is likely passing me by- but I loved the 7 oz. pours- the service was excellent- the patrons there were super cool- great experience!

Stopped by after work with Linh to meet up with Max and Tim. Dimly lit with really sleek, ivory looking bar. Others have mentioned a Scandinavian feel to the place, but I personally have no reference to such descriptors. It feels very unique and though out. As previously mentioned, the draft list is a bit difficult to read off the mirrors, but itís a small price to pay for the top notch selection. The bottle list could be the best Iíve personally ever seen. Slated to become one of the worlds best beer bars, I definitely plan to stop by a few times per month. Awesome place.

Stopped by after work. Really sleek looking Scandinavian design. amazing beer selection and while the bottle list is pricey for whales the taps were reasonable. location isnít super convenient for me to get to which is good or Iíd be spending all my paychecks here. canít wait for restaurant as well.

I was there in the opening day (waiting behind the door for opening), so it is of course a bit early to say about eg. service. Also importance for locals is perhaps a bit different than for a Scandinavian beer tourist.
Location is next to Nassau Str subway station so it is not too difficult to get there from Manhattan. Design of this place is very Scandinavian and for me (Northern European) it looked perhaps even a bit too neat for my liking - it is like a wine bar as someone said, but liked the wood they used. Beers on tap were difficult to read, but they are going to change the ink. Mirrors and tap handles are cool. Tap list was very impressive - of course focused to Evil Twin and some "friends" (Omnipollo, De Molen etc). Damn good beers! Prices werenít that bad either. One minus for that ABVs were not listed. The bottle list was one of the most impressive Iíve seen, you can compare it to eg. Akkuratís vintage list. Some prices sky high, but also ok priced bottles available. Place to revisit for sure.

Showed up to this greenpoint hot spot opening day at noon. lookin real nice inside with some beautiful neat wooded tables and walls. simple, elegant. tap list had cantillon kriek, tilquin gueuze, beachwood, bunch of evil twin beers. focused, impressive bottle list. tilquin plum for $45, golden blend for $30, bunch of blaeber for $75-$190 depending on the size and year, hommage for $75, selection lambic for $150. stuff like that. most all tap pours come in half sizes. one complaint about the tap beer list on the mirrors is that there is no indication of the beers style or alcohol content. needed to use ratebeer to figure out what i would even be ordering. so a paper menu with some additional basic info on styles, abv would be helpful, especially to the costumers who are not so pathetic that they spend 20 minutes researching beers on the internet before they order each one (like i do). the bottle list was pretty sick, but hard to give this place a perfect score for selection since i didnít know what half of the beers on the menu were. i like to have a nice selection of styles available - but i never bothered to check what style half the beers on the menu even were. neat place. would be happy to return. liked this more than any manhattan bar. happy it wasnít crowded when i stopped by. Warning: may get stuck hanging out with maxxdaddy and RamyG4 if you show up here.

Plenty of love here so far, and Iím not gonna be the one that changes that. Really like the decor in this place; some really nice wooden tables and the bar is pretty snazzy. Not to mention the draft list, which is written on a bunch of mirrors. Only downside of this was the choice of marker used to write the beer names; the beer names were very difficult to see (it seems Jeppe is going to fix this as of this review writing). The draft and bottle lists are truly spectacular and ones that I donít think can be matched anywhere in the US (unless/until Mikkel does a similar thing in San Francisco). Of course, with such a crazy bottle list, be prepared to pay top-dollar for the "whales." Thatís just how it is and I donít fault Jeppe for it at all. As you may have noticed, I didnít give Torst a 100. My reason for this is likely because of some opening day jitters among the bar staff. It took me about 5-7 minutes to get my first beer at the bar. Things got a bit better as the day went on, but I think Iíll reserve upgrading my score until Iím there in the evening, which will be in just a few short days.
That said, I have no problem calling Torst my #2 bar ever behind Akkurat, in terms of beer selection. Torst is most deserving of world-class status and I will come back here every chance I get (in spite of having to take the G train to get there). Cheers Jeppe on an amazing beer destination and hopefully just as great a food destination as well!

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!
