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.

Finally got to hit this place...been wanting to go there since it opened. Beautiful bar, very "clean" look to the interior, really beautiful. Love the draft listings and all the Evil Twin stuff that you canít get anywhere else. Staff was super-friendly and charged my phone...very knowledgeable on all things beer. Got to check out the back room and hopefully next time Iíll be able to eat there (or at the bar). A must-visit spot if youíre in NYC, no doubt about it.

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!

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! Thanks Jeppe

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. .

As far as overall experience goes this blows every other beer bar Iíve been to out of the water. Light years ahead of everything else in New York and all the European places Iíve visited. Super friendly staff, beautiful decor and nothing but hits on the tap list. Canít wait to return.

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.

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!
