I heard about this place a few months before it opened and I had wanted to visit ever since. A world class beer bar with a michelin quality restaurant in the back? You better believe I am in on that. Atmosphere was awesome. Tons of people enjoying themselves, beautiful bar and decor to match. Quality is one of the highest I have come across. Their draft system is state of the art, their build quality is amazing and their food is some of the best in the city. Service was a touch hit or miss. When they came around it was top notch but I was left with an empty glass for a bit longer than I should have been for sitting at the middle of the bar. Selection was pretty good on our visit. They obviously had plenty of Evil Twin but they also had some killer Belgian's that I had never seen before. If you include the back restaurant I am not sure how you can't say the food is world class. If you don't then it is adequate but nothing over the top. I got the bread and butter and while it was awesome I am not sure I really got my money's worth. Prices were high across the board, even more so than the better Manhattan bars. Overall this is easily one of the best beer bars I have ever come across. I look forward to visiting again the next time I am in the area. (1,264 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)

Visited back in December 2014. Not what I think of when I think beer bar but great nonetheless. The vibe is hip, it is Williamsburg you know. Went around 8 pm on a weeknight and it was pretty busy. Dimly lit inside, with ambient music playing in the background, set a relaxed mood. The place is outfitted with reclaimed wood tables and a marble bar. Staff seemed eager to help and asked if I had any questions about anything. A quarter of the draft list was Evil Twin stuff, also had a handful of things I couldn't get around my neck of the woods. Didn't try the food. Would go back next time I'm in BK (611 characters)
