Stopped by in the middle of a Friday afternoon to have one or two. Not very busy at that time. Decent selection, but nothing unusual. Good selection of Texas beers. Bartender was friendly and knew their selections. If I come back to the area, I will stop by.

I love the comfortable feeling I get when I walk into a Gingerman. It is like you are drinking in someoneís home - or your buddyís decked out basement. But not in Fort Worth.
We step into the front door and are immediately hit with a harsh smokey smell (Toto, weíre not in Dallas or Travis County anymore). Hmmm. Maybe I should order a Rauchbock, so the smell will blend with the beer . . .
The place is warm in one half of it (where the smokers are) and freezing in the other half (away from the bar). Since we choose to enjoy our beer, we literally run back out in the rain to our car and grab both sweatshirts and jackets, so we can attempt to enjoy our beer without freezing to death.
The beers. Wife had a 512 IPA, I had a Green Flash. Both good and fresh. But we just couldnít get over the atmosphere. It was like we were drinking in a funeral parlor versus a bar. And the way it is set up, there just doesnít seem to be any "hominess" that you come to expect when you enter a Gingerman.
So while it is far more convenient to park and get here (versus Flying Saucer FW) we wonít be back any time soon.

Cool little space with lots of taps and a good dose of locals, which is what I was looking for. We didnít eat so I didnít rate that component. Biggest disappointment was the smoking. Our server took a little while to get to us, but she was top notch once she took our order. She was fantastic and extremely polite.

I do not miss the non smoking ban in Texas, nice atmosphere inside with plenty of comfortable couches and chairs, a bit dark, huge outside patio to sit... service was ok, a bit slow and not really knowledgeable... draft list subpar, everything they had except for the TX beers you can get anywhere, and the TX beers were commonly available staples, bottle list was weak... I guess this is good for TX but subpar in most places

Nice bar but way over priced and with music far too loud.

Decent selection, typical Texas beers, some Stone and DFH as well. Some nice couches and places to sit and relax. A nice patio as well.

Nice looking place, the patio being the highlight though. Selection was good with some íraritiesí to be found. Bar people seemed to know what they weíre doing and knew what was not on tap.

When the relentless N. Texas sun permits, this is a good place to drink outdoors. Sure, itís right by a somewhat busy street, but itís partitioned off nicely and filled with long picnic tables, with water readily available. Itís hard not to compare this place with the Dallas location, and I think it comes out on top based on available seating choices/layout, atmosphere, and how nice the bar is. Did not eat at this location, would assume the menu is equally limited. But this is a place for drinking & we found on a recent visit that the selection here was superior even to the Dallas location (but then we found out that while Maharaja was still on the board, they were in fact out : ( Highly recommended for an evening full of adventurous drinking, but youíd be wise to look their beer menu up online & come with your own game plan.
