615 Manhattan Ave., Greenpoint
Craft beer lovers have been buzzing about Greenpoint’s hightly anticipated Scandinavian beer joint Tørst, which FINALLY opens tonight. The space is by the same company who designed Paulie Gee’s, Donna, Goat Town and duckduck (so it’s going to be beautiful). But we’re, of course, more excited about the beer.
Grub Street has a first look:
Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø — the cult brewer behind Denmark’s Evil Twin — and Daniel Burns — who has worked at Noma and Momofuku Labs — will open the doors to Tørst [Friday], one of the most anticipated beer bars in years. Burns says a full, separate kitchen is in the works for May; right now he’s got an oven and a meat slicer… Burns says there may also eventually be a ten-course tasting with individual pairings “of beer you can’t get anywhere else.”
