In short, this is Evil Twin/Jeppe’s 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. Let’s just say that if there is a rare bottle of beer you’ve 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 I’m 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!

Nothing to fault at Torst. Modern bar that feels as though the place has only been opened for business yesterday rather than two years now. Sleek marble white bar with backing mirror used for the hand written draft list. Some Evil Twin stuff, Carton, Maine, De Molen... Nothing too crazy on my visit but some fun beers regardless. The bottle list was insanely priced. Simple food menu of small plates but felt pricey for what I got in front of me. The bartender was great - happy to pour tasters, chatty and had good rapport with the punters. It’s well worth at least one visit, although these days I think I mostly prefer more cosy pubs to drink a beer in.

A pretty good beer bar ni a good location in Brooklyn area. Great selection of locals and some rarities. The atmosphere is not my favorite but can understand its attraction in the location it is in. They have a small but good food menu overall. The fact they do different size pours is a big plus. The bottle selection has some goodies on it for the beer geek. Overall a good beer bar to visit while in brooklyn

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 I’m in the area.

Minimalist Nordic cool interior, 21 taps on today, with 5 sheets of bottles. The bread is fantastic

Quite weird neighborhood. Cozy Scandinavian interior which means that chairs near the desk are very bad. I was expecting clinic hospital style place but I was wrong. Many good beers but prices are high naturally.

Unassuming entranced, walked by twice. Large nice bar and efficient seating split into tons of small tables. Service knew their stuff and very geek friendly. Selection was big and interesting, with lots of imports. No flights but small pours. Prices are on the higher side, but worth it. I didn’t eat. Great place and worth the hype.

kraddel  (205) some beerplace , Belgium | February 11, 2015
Selection was very mediocer when I visited . Service was nice, atmosphere was very cool , clean . The bar itself looks very fancy , very detailed . Lacks of cosyness though . I expected much Evil twins , and They did have that, but none of the wanted ones . Instead they had their pilsner , some low-abv mediocer beers , etc . Also some other brewery’s , but cots was very high compared to other bars . nevertheless , I seemed to have missed out on the bottle menu , and the food . So I’ll re-visit again and probably my rating would rise .
