TÃ¸rst is a bar focusing on craft beer in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, and its founders have two different storied careers in the beer world. This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme invite Brian Ewing and Jeppe Jarnit-BjergsÃ¸ into the studio to talk about their experiences working in beer, and why they decided to team up and open TÃ¸rst. Hear Brian talk about distributing rare European beers out of the back of his car in the early days of 12 Percent Imports. Jeppe talks about his beginnings in homebrewing, and how he honed his skills and began Evil Twin Brewing Company. How is TÃ¸rst’s draft system, also known as ‘the Flux Capacitor’, different from most? And how many draft lines will there be at TÃ¸rst? Tune into this episode to find out all of this and more! This program has been sponsored by Tekserve.
