Though the initial excitement has worn off, this place is solid for three observed reasons: the bottle list, the tap list, and the atmosphere. I wish I could add parking. The bottle list because of special European availability, though no longer the European only Cantillons. The tap list because of the great selections of Europe and the USA as well as a good and not overwhelming selection of the Evil Twins. The lower comfortable bar and comfortable major league service. Excitement will surely pick up with the upcoming restaurant. (535 characters)

A great place to enjoy quality brews, especially Evil Twin, which is the featured brewery. (The owner is the founder of Evil Twin). They have Danish food(the owner is Danish) that is mostly small and for snacking. The service is good and friendly. The decor is perhaps a little sterile and chi chi for me. It looks more like a fancy cocktail bar. Nevertheless, this is a cool place to hang and to enjoy excellent quality off centered brews. (440 characters)

A must visit beer place if you care about beer. Always new and interesting beers on tap. Knowledgeable staff and friendly if not on a busy night. Also a great bottle selection . (177 characters)

Cool place overall and very unique in design, function and offerings.

It does get overly crowded and loud on the weekends.

Some of the servers aren't really as educated on the offerings as they should be.

Prices are pretty steep for the portion sizes.

Generally speaking, things in Brooklyn, especially specialty brews are around 10-20% less expensive than in Manhattan, depending on the location and proximity to a subway.

Torst is by far the most expensive beer venue in the entire city if you measure dollars to ounces.

It's a nice place if you have the money to blow, and you will get some excellent beer, but not really worth the price in my book. (659 characters)

The infamous Tørst. You know, infamous is when you're more then famous. This Tørst is not just famous...it's INfamous.

Killer selection. Multiple serving size options. Works for me. (185 characters)

Great tap selection, and a super-impressive bottle selection. Cool minimalist design and vibe. 80s music blaring (maybe it was the night if the week), knowledgeable staff. Didn't eat, but the menu seemed appropriate and beer complementary. Prices on the high side, but there's no really cheap craft beer in NYC. Awesome place. I'll go back every time I'm in NYC. (367 characters)

An absolutely phenomenal selection of beers. The bar menu is great. I suggest the olives and the rugbrod, buttered. If I could get here more often, I certainly would. The bartenders are extraordinarily friendly, helpful, and make great beer suggestions, though, with a beer list like that, I don't know if they could make a bad one. Anyway, this place is a must visit. (373 characters)

Lives up to the hype. Could use table service, but that's hardly a dealbreaker. (79 characters)
