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!

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

Fantastic place, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, great selection of taps with an additional bottle list. A bit pricey, but itís NYC. Definitely a must visit if in the area.

Visited this dimly lit quite posh looking marble palace on a quiet Friday, 3-5 PM or so. Surprisingly slow service considering the number of guests, but at least they were super friendly and the guy at the bar were knowledgeable enough for our needs. Got a wonderful duck confit sandwich and a bunch of lovely beers from kegs. Had a couple of bottled ones as well. The bottle list is the most impressive about this place I think, but since we didnít have much time we didnít get to ruin ourselves exploring it. Not that the prices are ridiculous in any way, but I bet we could easily drink for several hundred dollars without even touching the expensive ones. Anyway, Iím glad we spent the time on the subway to get back and forth, itís a place every beer nerd coming to NYC should visit, but please make sure to look at the bottle list. At least on our visit the tap list was a bit focused on imp stouts and Jolly Pumpkin. I love both, but with 21 taps Iíd prefer if more than half of them were not either Imp stouts or JP.

Long layover at JFK? Take the hour long taxi ride to Brooklyn and visit Torst! Well worth the trip and the $$. Awesome place kinda tucked away. Stopped by on a Thursday at 3:00pm so there were only a few people there. Really cool atmosphere. Clean "dive bar" feel mixed with a hipster coffee shop. Tap list alone is well thought out and has hit after hit. Bottle list is pretty nuts if you want to pick off a bottle of something youíve been searching for but the taps are enough to keep you occupied. Very friendly staff. Will definitely need to return.

Phenomenal bar in terms of selection. Probably one of the best Iíve been to in that regard. Really great variety b/w Evil Twin stuff and other goodies. Pretty tame atmosphere overall but the selection is outstanding. They also organize their tap list more or less according to ABV, which is kinda cool. The crowd when I was there was on the older side which surprised me a bit. Overall, the selection makes it worth it.
