This place is just world class. From the marble bench tops to the sexy tap display, this place screams awesome. Great beer list - lots of BIG beers. Bottle list is amazing too. The bar tenders are so cool. Let us drink after hours with them then we kicked on to a cocktail bar. Just an amazing night thanks Torst for the hospitality.

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!

A very modern and minimalist place, hid behind one of the most unnoticeable doors in Brooklyn. The place is not very big, but itís light and inviting, with simple wooden furniture. Very cool bar with 21 taps, also in wood, ranging from light to dark, and with three size options on most taps. The selection is top class, both when it comes to styles, breweries. The focus seems to be evenly geographically divided, making this one of obvious places for good European brew in the city. Obviously a lot of whatís on are one offs and hard to get stuff, and taps seem rotate rather quickly. The bottle list equally impressive, and quite extensive given the limited releases on some of the bottles. Staff is service minded, knowledgeable and more than willing to give advice or discuss beer. Itís not, per se, a cheap place, but still it terrific value for money.

Short review. Great ambiance and a lot of nice folks to talk to. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great selection on draft. An example for beer bars around the world. Love this place!

I have been here twice and enjoyed both visits a lot. It is a rather small place, at least by Texas standards, that has a modern Scandinavian-style interior. I sat at the bar both visits and the bartenders were very friendly and helpful. I tried some great beers both times and I kind of like the standard signiture glassware that all the beer comes in. I ordered food during both visits and ejoyed the interesting offerings. Had my first fiddlehead fern here, which came on my cheese plate. Who knew people ate fern. Anyway, great place that I will try to get back to next time Iím in the area.

Nice ambiance, they certainly put a lot of work into it. The bar itself is beautiful. I didnít go in the back room, I just wish the main room was a little larger and lighter. I thought the service was great, they had lots of bartenders on hand so I never had to wait. Part of me wishes they had table service but if the bar service is always that good it doesnít matter. The selection was obviously amazing; the most unique beer list iíve ever seen. They did a really good job of including everything from very low ABV to very high, and lots of variety with styles. Perhaps maybe a little heavy on the porter/stouts, especially given it was late spring. Others have complained about the value but I didnít think it was that bad. Welcome to new york! I also like the ability to get 8oz pours. I have to give this place a 20 overall though, just for the pure ridiculousness of it. A great addition to BK and a great effort.

Well worth the trip. Sunday at 2:00 might be the perfect tume to visit I'm not sure where to start actually. Layout is somewhat reminiscent of sputyn Duvall in Williamsburg. Definitely a Nordic feel to the place but the mirror draft board behind the taps gives it a somewhat French feel. The tap system is mind blowing. Different styles poured at exactly the right temp. The beer list is decidedly euro influenced -- tons of collaboration beers and no shortage of barrel aged selections. Short pours, tasters, extensive bottle list. This place is a can't miss.
