A surprisingly small place with a nice modern design and an impressive high-tech tap system. Loud and packed during a Friday evening visit, as expected. Tap list was focused on Evil Twin and European beers, nothing super special was available during my visit but a nice variety of styles nevertheless, although at quite high prices. The bottle list was really impressive, but the rare stuff was really pricey too. This place would be awesome for a bottle share with friends during a peaceful afternoon visit.

What can be said that hasnít already? Phenomenal and diverse selection... clean and modern Nordic vibe... multiple pour options... efficient service. It can be slightly out of the way if youíre in Manhattan, but you should go out of your way to visit.

Torst has 21 taps that are filled with some of the most special offerings I have ever seen. Most of it is Euro, but think Euro craft (Evil Twin heavy, Birrificio), not just standard Belgian. There is a bit of American offering on draft, and a lot more American available on the bottle list. At first, Torst feels like it could be a snotty beer geek bar, but itís honestly just a fun, nice place. When a keg ran out, the bartender got on a step ladder and erased the old beer (listed above the bar) and everyone was cheering him on as he wrote the name of the new rare beer being tapped. Also, one cannot forget about the tap system. Every single draft line is temperature controlled independently and has its own set mixture of CO2 and Nitro. Theyíre serious. But theyíre fun. MUST VISIT.

Awesome new brew mecca that is sure to be a huge hit. I came by on a dreary, snowy Monday evening, a few weeks after it opened, and there were plenty of customers already. And why is it already on the way to becoming a living legend? Because the quality is awesome, that is why. The drafts emphasized Evil Twin of course (since he/they run the place in case you didnít know), but there were a number of other interesting selections as well The brews are served thru a "flux capacitor" or something like that, which is a phrase borrowed from a science fiction story, but at Torst it is a device that allows different beers to be served at different temperatures and with differing amounts of added gases. Not surprisingly the bottle list also features some rare items. And if that werenít enough, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the prices, given the quality on tap here, are quite reasonable. They will be adding a tasting menu soon also, put together by a rising young chef, and I am looking forward to giving that a try. I am tempted to keep my mouth shut so that more and more people donít start pouring thru its unmarked door, but I have to tip my hat to the "evil twin" and his crew - this place is something special.

Great little bar with a very decent selection of beer. Skews towards rare European stuff, so maybe more for the Americans than for the out of continenters...

Resonably priced for Brooklyn. Extra hipster vibe. European (italian) heavy tap list.

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 youíre in Brooklyn!

Awesome place!! The atmosphere is a little modern looking, not like an old pub, with granite bar top and stools. The service was awesome, very attentive, with a staff that was very enthusiastic and knowledgable about beer. Incedible selection, both draft and bottle. Decent prices overall, especially for this expensive area. They offer 5, 8 and 14 oz. pours of each beer. great place.

Located in one of the harder to get to portions of Brooklyn, Torst is on a street that never the less epitomizes New York. Lots of diverse business on the block with food options ranging from hipster to Old World. Walked right by the door the first time, but if youíre looking for the wood, youíll see it. The space is almost on the small side; a bar that seats maybe 15, some communal tables, about dozen or so tables for two. The space itself is fairly bright.20 taps, everything is interesting/new/rarez/special. Some local items, which I appreciate too. They do 4oz, 8oz and 12oz pours priced accordingly. Iíd say the prices are a bit on the higher side, but you are paying for rarity. The staff is excellent. Solid bottle list, if not a bit expensive as well. We didnít eat, but the menu looked good. Definitely worth a stop, I will certainly go back again.

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.

Must visit beer bar while in new york. Easy to come from manhattan. Visited yesterday and tasted many evil twin taps. Also there was bacchus (usa) tap takeover, some very good and rare beers from the tap. Good food also and friendly staff.
