3.5/5  rDev -13.8%

A great little place close to the home of some family friends in the Polish neighborhood of Greenpoint. Built in an old garage, this is a bar, beer store, and growler fill station all in one. The tap selection is great - I had a couple Hill Farmstead beers as well as some other interesting stuff. The guy there, Eric, is very knowledgeable about beer, which is always a good thing. The seating is austere but befitting of the setting. The kegs of the Hill Farmstead beers seemed a bit off. They poured out looking like grapefruit juice, cloudy and pink. Weirded me out. Bottle prices are a bit high, even for NYC, for which I need to knock down the score a little bit. Captain Lawrence Smoke from the Oak pack for EIGHTY BUCKS??? Come on, man! Overall a solid place though that I wish I lived two blocks from like my friends do.

This is a really cool place in the BK.

Like many other places in NYC, it will cost you a bit to have a beer. Thankfully, however, they offer smaller servings and graduating prices that ease the sticker shock. Add to this a superb selection including some rareties and beers that out-of-towners like me never see and it's easy to go overboard here and order a ton of beers.

Just to give an idea of the selection, they had Sweetwater and Green Flash among other American craft options that I'm blanking on, as well as a number of Belgian and German offerings like Gaffel and again, some other names I'm blanking on. Bottom line: you'll find something you like here.

Add to the great tap selection an impeccable cooler selection for those that want to take some bottles to go or crack one on the premises. If you buy a bottle, you'll pay a corkage fee to drink at the bar, but once you see the selection, you'll probably still want to do this despite the extra charge.

As for the seating, there's small beer garden in the back and tables for around 10-12 people right next to the taps. There are pretzels and pickles for those that get the munchies too.

Overall, one of the best spots I've been to in NYC. Not sure when I'll return, but it can't come soon enough.

Stopped by after a terrific time at Torst. This place was unusual and very cool. Small beer retail (excellent selections) with 16 or so outstanding taps. Had one of the best stouts ever (Warlock, by Victory I think?) and several wet-hopped IPAs. Took home a couple growlers afterward. Wish there were more of this style beer drinking/beer retail places. Reminded me of Common Market in Charlotte without the general merchandise and deli. Lots of fun.

Stopped in at opening time on a monday. Cool layout with a large window outside that allows you to look a the chalk board of tap/growler fills 9in fact I found it easier to read the list by stepping outside and looking through the window. Below is the taps (not really behind a bar). A few cold case and sitting area, also a nice little patio out back.

Looked liked it would be a great neighborhood spot, but I was more on the look out for bottles on my visit and they were very picked over, ended up leaving empty handed. Tap list was nice looking but also nothing I couldn't live with out.

Minimal interaction with the staff but they seemed nice enough. Would stop in if in the neighborhood.
