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!

Cool, spotless and not your typical beer hangout. Very interesting selection on tap when I visited. Lots of Evil Twin at very reasonable prices. And the fab Limfjorsdporter, too. Good selection of sours. Very loud music, but it was right up my alley: Human League, New Order, Joy Division. The original post-punk seems to be in vogue all over New York. Not many visitors, though, but it was a rainy night.

Love coming in to see what’s coming next...that is if you can find the door. Love the minimalistic feel of the marble and wooden tap handles. Staff is quite knowledgeable and friendly....They also play their own spotify...so ask if you don’t like the music.

Beautiful bar. Fantastic build. Food options are tasty. Service was acceptable not exceptional. Crowd kind varies depending on the time of day. Fantastic selection of beer. 20 taps half were Evil Twin (who own the place?) *it was freezing cold when i was in there last as in we were all bundled up. Didnt seem to bother anyone though since the beer is soooo good. Must go if you are a beer person and are visiting from out of town.

Resonably priced for Brooklyn. Extra hipster vibe. European (italian) heavy tap list.

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, we’d 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.

Torst has 21 taps that are filled with some of the most special offerings I have ever seen. Most of it is Euro, but think Euro craft (Evil Twin heavy, Birrificio), not just standard Belgian. There is a bit of American offering on draft, and a lot more American available on the bottle list. At first, Torst feels like it could be a snotty beer geek bar, but it’s honestly just a fun, nice place. When a keg ran out, the bartender got on a step ladder and erased the old beer (listed above the bar) and everyone was cheering him on as he wrote the name of the new rare beer being tapped. Also, one cannot forget about the tap system. Every single draft line is temperature controlled independently and has its own set mixture of CO2 and Nitro. They’re serious. But they’re fun. MUST VISIT.

Really a great spot that is well deserving of all of the hype. Clean and homey atmosphere, with plenty of great tap options. Always something unique that you won’t find anywhere else. A bit pricey, but I always leave feeling like a got my moneys worth. A must stop for those visiting NYC.

Visited on 8/13/13. A: The vibe of the place is pretty cool but basic...nothing flashy or out of the ordinary, a very clean and straight forward bar environment. Q: the quality of the beers is really good because they dont carry any dogs on tap or in bottles. Very solid selection on both ends. S: It was a tuesday night when we went and other than a mild surge around 10pm, the bartenders were very attentive, outgoing, and somewhat knowledgeable about what was on tap. S: Evil Twin Heavy for obvious reseaons although didnt see too much on tap that could not be purchased in local bottles shops. I guess I went in with the stigma about their awesome tap selection that other people had talked about but just didnt find to be the mind blowing experience as previously mentioned. Found it a lot easier to order off of the bottle list than tap list. V: Paying NYC prices on taps, bottles are obviously higher and over priced in some instances. Overall, a cool place to hang out and maybe find an occassional Evil Twin release...on of the best places in Brooklyn.
