Very stylish long marble bar and low wooden coffee tables. 21 taps very good selection, half-hearted food menu, good atmosphere knowledgeable and warm bartender. Place to be if youíre in Brooklyn!

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.

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.

Torst is one of the most unique and refreshingly different beer spots in NYC and probably the entire US. The design is beautiful. Itís never overcrowded. The bar tenders are knowledgable, skilled, and really friendly in my experience. The food is worthy of every accolade at the bar and Luksus. The beer is served better than anywhere Iíve been to in NYC. The draught selection is always a pleasure to drink from though it suffers from too much of the Dannish and Nordic beer mafia, who are not all that IMO. That being said Iím totally happy to see lots of Evil Twin. It only makes sense. The bottle list is also not so interesting as itís first few months open though there are many gems. Major problem is that itís too expensive to make it a regular spot.

This place has a pretty great selection of beer. It also has very tasty Danish bread, which is a reason to go here all by itself. The selection is heavily tilted toward the Italian, Danish, and Belgian beers. There are old bottles of fun things like De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva. The ambiance is cool. The music is good. Bartenders certainly know what they are doing. Apparently the tap system is also one of the most advanced in the world. The only and biggest downside is that it is very expensive. A tiny glass of beer could set you back $13 or so. Obviously, if money is not an issue, then this place is superb. One minor point in response to the previous rating: the bar tables are not marble... they just look like it.

Great little bar with a very decent selection of beer. Skews towards rare European stuff, so maybe more for the Americans than for the out of continenters...

A surprisingly small place with a nice modern design and an impressive high-tech tap system. Loud and packed during a Friday evening visit, as expected. Tap list was focused on Evil Twin and European beers, nothing super special was available during my visit but a nice variety of styles nevertheless, although at quite high prices. The bottle list was really impressive, but the rare stuff was really pricey too. This place would be awesome for a bottle share with friends during a peaceful afternoon visit.

Nice looking place, but ambiance gets docked for the sheer volume in there. Very very loud, to the point of being difficult to order/have a conversation. Service was absolutely outstanding. Bartenders were friendly and attentive. One went so far as to run down to the basement to grab a bottle for me, even though it was Saturday night and they were slammed. Did it with a smile on his face too. Ate a bit of Welsh rarebit that was excellent, didnít try anything else but everything around me smelled excellent. Prices are really really high, but I donít mind paying the premium for a special occasion. On the whole this is about as great of a beer spot as you got possibly ask for, and in a cool neighborhood thatís already worth visiting on its own. A definite must-visit.

What can be said that hasnít already? Phenomenal and diverse selection... clean and modern Nordic vibe... multiple pour options... efficient service. It can be slightly out of the way if youíre in Manhattan, but you should go out of your way to visit.

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 itís 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. Theyíre serious. But theyíre fun. MUST VISIT.
