615 Manhattan Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11222 | Brooklyn | 718-389-6034

Location Description:

A Copenhagen native, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø has brought Brooklyn a sleek, streamlined approach to craft beer. Greenpoint's Tørst is bright and modern with clean wood-paneling and an equally clean-cut clientele to match. The owner's very own Evil Twin are the featured suds here, but there's also an expertly-chosen rotating draft, poured from a state-of-the-art system that keeps each individual brew at its ideal temperature. Cheese, charcuterie, and modernized Danish fare is on the food menu, with a bargain pig roast every Sunday. It's a just a block shy of McCarren Park and the Nassau Avenue G train.
