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!

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.

Has a fabulous selection of beer on tap and a great selection of bottles. The staff are friendly, although their WiFi is screwy. A bit difficult to see the sign above the door and the air-conditioning was set to super coll for some reason. Despite the few drawbacks was an amazing experience.

Its funny you can take Danish style out of of Denmark but you can you replicate it in the US? Beer great. Design pretty stunning. Ambiance - yeah well - if you like thrash music loud and if you like disdain from the barman if you dare to ask for the sound to be turned down to match the decor - well perhaps think twice. Pity, weíd so looked forward to visiting. Would go again if bar staff polished their act to match what the owner intended. Grunge is not always cool.

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.

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.
