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.
