In short, this is Evil Twin/Jeppeís answer to MikkelerBAR only in New York instead of Copenhagen. Came with the entire NYC ratebeer group for a Saturday afternoon. Secret, unassuming white door is your entrance. Could easily pass by without knowing it was here. Interior is clean, simple, woodwork and white. Long bar with a long mirror displaying the tap list on handwritten white marker. All tap beers served in stemmed wine glasses, smaller 8oz pours and larger 12+ oz pours. Prices were reasonable up to $8 per pour. Selection is a case of quality over quantity: Probably 20 taps but excellent diversity with focus on Evil Twin of course, Belgian, other Danish beers. Tap list when I was there was lacking in American beers but no matter. Keg rotation here is quick, nothing insane like Ma Che Siete but certainly very quick with no stale keg backlog. Special edition one-off stuff on tap that you will never find anywhere else like Port BA Even More Jesus, Gin Barrel 1809 Berliner. Bottle list is insane. Letís just say that if there is a rare bottle of beer youíve been after, try and ask if it is available even if not on the menu. Food plates were cured meats, Danish rugbrod, pickled vegetables, olives. All very high quality, perfect for beer pairing. It is clear that Jeppe knows exactly what is needed when trying a flight of different specialties beers. The restaurant in the back is not open yet, but once it is, I have no doubt the food quality will be extremely high. Very cozy, clean, happening place. Was very crowded and hopping at 3-4pm on Saturday and Iím sure continued like that until close. Service was quick, on the ball, understood all of our crazy orders, clearly trained well and understand beer. Did not make me wait for more than 1-2 minutes for an order despite the large crowd. Had the great privilege to chat with Jeppe 1 on 1 for about 15 minutes. Pretty amazing experience. Even got to meet Elliot!

Eff this place. White walls, white tile, marble all over - itís like drinking in an ice cream parlor. A bunch of overpriced Evil Twin beers is what they want to sell you. No thanks.

Cool place in Brooklyn. Smaller than I imagined it would be for some reason, but cool. There werenít many Evil Twin beers on tap when I was here, actually, but there was a J. Wakefield tap takeover so I wasnít complaining. Service was ok. Prices high, but this is New York. Great bottle menu as well, though I struggled just to get through the tap menu.

Located in a part of Brooklyn where thereís a mixture of the pre-gentrification alongside the trendy new residents. Has a nice feel about it. Torst is close to the Metro stop and has an unassuming frontage which hides a low lit stylish minimlaist Scandanivian wood and white tile interior. A little too low lit like many places in NY making it hard to read menus and the chalk menu on the mirror behind the bar. Beers are served in tulip wine glasses which is great although the slightly uneven wood table surfaces are another aspect of style over utility. Thatís all made up for by a really nice beer list and a nice crowd of people. Not just hipsters but there were middle aged Manhattanites, a gay couple and a few normals alongside the bearded brigade. All in all a very nice experience and highly recommended.

Ambiance: interior, as mentioned before, is lovely. Downside: you canít possible read the beer on the mirrors above the bar with the light on it. Service was knowledgable and friendly. Selection is of course nice. Although I expected a LOT more ET beers. Value is ridiculous. Overall I would revisit... Typical hipster bar, with prices that are simply to high in my opinion.

Modern looking bar in Greenpoint. Came pretty late, place was packed so I barely managed to find a place to sit down. Selection is unique and well thought out. Combination of Evil Twin beers and brews form other breweries not to be seen in other bars in area. Rather expensive. Well worth visiting.

Sleek modern place with a nice combo of wood and stone. Long bar on one side, tables on the other. Pretty much empty at opening time on a Sunday, which gave me time to chat about beer with the staff. They were very friendly, very knowledgeable and had good beer recommendations. They had one of the most extensive bottle lists Iíve seen in quite some time, many things reasonably priced and some things very pricey. Draft list was also very solid, and they do 4 ounce pours. I had smoked trout which was very tasty. Nice place.

This is one place you must visit while in NY. Pricey but worth it.
