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.

I kind of have mixed feelings for this place.

I first found out about TØRST when I heard rumors that there is a bar in Brooklyn that actually gets Cantillon on tap. Whereas Yelp helped confirm that rumor in my mind, I have yet to succeed in my everlasting quest to try Belgium's best lambics and gueuze on draft outside of Belgium.

My grudges against Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø's inability to procure some of the world's rarest brews regularly on tap aside, there is always something here for any beer enthusiast to try; the fact that the beer selection is supervised and directed by a "ghost brewer" who contracts out to some of the US' finest and up-and-coming brewers (Westbrook, Stillwater, Three Floyds, Prairie to name a few) means you're always going to find something here you probably won't expect to see in other bars.

The price point can be a little steeper than most bars in the Greenpoint/Williamsburg areas, (thanks to my fellow BeerAdvocates/RateBeer members and the faux-hipster-beer-geeks for that) but the Brooklynite-by-osmosis Dane has done quite well with TØRST and I've yet to have a bad experience here; if anything else, they always seem to have Imperial Biscotti Break and Lil' B on their state-of-the-line draft system, so if you like seeing good beer flow out of cool looking taps that look like they just magically appear out of a wall... there you go.
