Not much of a beer drinker, prefer wines, but they take it very seriously here so if you want a guided lesson and learn to appreciate the vagaries of different tastes and styles, this would be the place to learn and enjoy.

Tørst is a casual bar with a scandinavian-ish design. Wooden walls, and simple furniture. We enjoyed a nice confited duck sandwich with spicy cabbage and pickled cucumber, together with tasty beer that the staff recommended. A good stop to make when you're in Brooklyn.

Nice selection of beer. Friendly staff. Scandinavian decor. Narrow room - difficult to navigate the aisles when crowded. Nice scene.

You will almost miss this place walking down the street, but don't because it is definitely worth a stop! They have an awesome beer list including know beer distributors like Mikkeller and Evil Twin. Also they give you a choice on the pour size so you can try a variety. The decor is definitely Scandinavia with the wood work and... More

They put the fancy into beers. Great selection of beers on tap and they all come out in fancy wine glasses. They know there beer there. Bartenders are professionals. Worth a visit,

I can't give the beer lossy enough accolades. It is fully incomparable. The staff knew the details of every beer and let you taste them. I would sit at the bar if possible. The only real negative thing here is that you have to nudge between customers to order if you aren't at the bar.

Torst has one of the best beer buyers in the business. In a city full of excellent beer bars, Torst manages to raise the bar even higher. We only get to Torst a few times a year, but often check their beer list on beermenus when looking for new brews to try from our local bottle shop. Aside from the... More

The menu of beers is amazing! The staff is friendly and kind. I could not tell which beer was my favorite because all of them are great. Awesome place, they take good care of all of the details (check out the glasses and the decoration). Try the olives! They are perfect... One of my favorites.

Torst is a very nice Beer bar but the real surprise is the hidden restaurant in the back where you can get a fantastic tasting menu with a super nice beer pairing.

well, we only had beer and it is very good. Tried 6 or 7 different types and the evil twin porter (dont remember the name) is probably the best beer I ever had. If you like beer this place is a must.
