    Stopping by tonight and have already decided that I want to drink nothing but the L'anjub Lug. Never heard of it and sounds weird. Therefore, I am all over it.

    I was there on Saturday Night. The Room 603 was tasty, as was the Falco. The port Even More Jesus was good as well. Justin Blabaer will probably be for sale again tonight as well.

    I talked to my buddy who works there and he said it'd probably be back for sale sometime this week. Hopefully you luck out.

    I really like it Chris, I was drinking it all Monday night after my shift.

    I hear you... But everything else on tap at that time, I had had previously. with the exception of maybe one... That was over 10%.

    Yeah, that's always a pretty annoying situation. Similar thing happened to me at Blind Tiger on Wednesday - the only beer that really caught my eye was in the 11% range. Not what I'm looking to have with a light lunch before heading back to the office.

    But more broadly, I stand by my previous comment regarding the weird Scandinavian beers - some of the beers coming out of that region are really good! And completely impossible to pronounce! Why are there so many silent j's?!

    I was actually visiting this week, really enjoyed it, and definitely got a couple good beers I had never heard of off the tap list.

    On that note, I unfortunately forgot to note one of the beers I had. It was darker in color and had a bit of a sour bite to it. Think the beer was called "gouden......something". Does anyone have an idea what that may have been?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure he's talking about the Goudenband on tap Sam.

    Oh yeah, you're probably right. That beer was excellent once it warmed up!

    Finally making my first visit to TORST tomorrow late afternoon if anyone wants to meet up and potentially share a bottle or two off the menu. :relaxed:

    Hoping Aún Más Café Jesús is still on tomorrow; looking forward to finally seeing the place!

    The Aun Mas regular is a ridiculously amazing and even a bit underrated beer. Bought a bottle of the Aun Mas Cafe that I still need to try.
    I'll hopefully be going tomorrow to try it on tap first.

    I may be making my first trip to Torst Thursday night. What is the parking like around there, are there any garages close by?
     
  16. Knifestyles

    Knifestyles Initiate (154) Jun 7, 2005 New York

    No garages, but you shouldn't have any trouble finding street parking around the McCarren Park zone that's right nearby.

    Like Chris said, look for parking around McCarren Park, if you can't find anything there's a garage Little Man Parking on N 12th st 8 min walk from the bar. Cheers!

    You should try to make it tonight if you can. They're tapping Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock and Blueberry Pancake today. Won't last long.

    I always park in front of "Automotive High School." Just google map it. Spots are always open in the evening. 2 min walk.

    Was going to but my friend just dropped out. I think it's $12/5oz, which is kinda out of my price range. Would love to try the Blueberry Pancake though.

    Bottles at the brewery were $30 for a 12.7oz... So the price at Torst is spot on.

    Oh I understand, I'm just saying I don't have 12 bucks to spend on a few ounces of beer right now.

    $12 for 5 ounces. Well worth every penny, cheaper than going to Michigan too

    If you can't get the KRE, definitely try Aun Mas Cafe Jesus. So good.

    It's good on tap, but the coffee is subdued. I suggest trying a bottle.

    Daaaaaaaaamn. Love that they've been sending over larger containers these days. Been watching stuff like Fluffer and DRIPA hang around at a lot of places for growler fills for some rather "extended" periods of time. Excellent news.

    I'm going to be in NYC for job training for the next five weeks, and Torst is definitely on my list of places to visit. I'm not sure yet of my availability, but if anyone wants to meet up with this Chicago BA while I'm in town, please send me a BM!

    Bump. They announced on FB that the restaurant will be opening on 7/16.

    http://www.luksusnyc.com/

    No menu or anything yet but you can make reservations. I remember reading in Brooklyn Magazine they're planning to have a 5 course tasting menu for about $50 with a beer pairing for $35.

    I thought the place was beautiful and unique, and the people I met on both sides of the bar were fantastic. That said, the prices were...steep. I had two 8 oz. Bahnhoff berliners and called it an experience. Drove back to Philadelphia after just over an hour.

    Will be passing through a week on Sunday with wife in tow.

    Can anyone suggest some places nearby to go for dinner please? I need to build up some credits so I can get a decent amount of time at the bar.

    Also do Tørst sell wine/spirits?

    Beer only. Assuming you are asking for the wife, I'm sure someone there will have enough experience dealing with that sort of situation to identify what she likes and find a beer that'll work for her palate.

    As for place to dine? It depends on what you like but there are a BUNCH of places around the area.
