This is a great place in Greenpoint, very close to the G train. We ran into Brooklyn with Torst as our finish point. Pick your menus at the bar and sit at the tables or the bar. Very efficient bartender. You order at the bar irrespective of where you sit. You carry the beers back on your own, the food... More

Awesome tap room - great environment and service. And a fantastic beer list. All types well represented. Evil Twin obviously a favourite. Many Imperial Stouts and barrel aged beers when I was there. Quite busy even at 3pm on a rainy January weekday. Hours of operation in TripAdvisor totally wrong. Check google.

While over from London in May we were taken to Tørst by a Brooklyn native beer expert! This place is for real craft beer connoisseurs. A small but very cool, nice looking bar with a good local crowd and a buzz about it. The drought beers are served from numbered taps on the back wall behind the bar so you... More

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.
