A nice small craft beer bar. Went to Houston on business and hit this place up hungry for good beer and a light dinner. The menu consisted of 5 or 6 appetizers. Thatís it. No big deal I was just hoping for something more substantial. The beer list was typical of a good beer bar. Lots of taps and lots of stuff I canít get at home in PA. Service was great as well.

Classic pub-style bar with the dim lights and smell of beer all over the place. The servers are always nice and exceptionally knowledgeable about beer and are always willing to make suggestions if you donít know what you want. They have many special beers and seasonal, rotating beers, and all beers are fairly priced. I think Iíve had just about every beer on the tap list in all the styles I like.

Best place in the Houston area bar none! Great staff. Great patio. Great draft beer. Enough said.

The granddaddy of H-Town beer joints. Great vibe in a cool neighborhood. They suffer from the same distribution limitations as every Texas beer bar. But they always have a handful of tasty choices. They are a little Texas-beer-centric for my taste. Other than Real Ale out of Blanco I havenít had too many Texas brews that did much for me. I know many of my fellow beer-loving Houstonians will want to beat me up for not bragging on Saint Arnoldís. But outside of their Divine Reserve series, theyíre pretty average. Anyway, a worthwhile stop in the Rice University area.

Love this place. Selection is great, service is usually pretty good as well. Knowledgable bartenders. Havenít ever tried the food. I try to come here whenever I have the chance.

Awesome place! Great beers on tap. Plus the server was very knowledgeable about beers. She said they get 1 after shift beer so they can taste and educate themselves about the various beers they serve. Very limited food selection (thatís the only downside of the place). Overall, it had a great atmosphere and awesome brews.

Love coming to this place for the numerous events they have during the year. Best beer selection in Rice Village and lots of great beers on tap. Prices are a little high but can get full pints for high alcohol beers. Great atmosphere on the patio and live music on certain nights. Good service and knowledgeable staff.

OK, my rating is based on the most recent 5 visits. This used to be one of my favorite places in the Houston area. Then they went downhill. No hophead brews, despite what is listed in the monthly newsletter of what is available. Inside info of a former server, however, explained it all. Corporate is apparently deciding what brews they are to offer, mostly rare Belgians. Weird. Iíve been vastly disappointed the past 5 visits over several weeks. They advertise Ranger IPA. Not available? They advertise half a dozen other IPAs. None available. This bar has become a joke. I will not visit further. Just please stop the E-mailings specific to your bar for what is available when it is a lie. That is false advertising and some of us drive 25 miles to get there. Pathetic. Good luck. Bring back the Ginger Man I used to know.

I love the Gingerman. The older location in Austin was my original favorite, but since moving to Houston I visit this one as frequently. What to say about Gingerman... Itís an excellent bar with great draught selections. Itís a bit small and in the crowded Rice Village area. This is the kind of bar to visit on a Tuesday night because of their specials and smaller crowds. Friday and Saturday nights here get pretty crowded and take away from the ambiance. Bar staff is usually knowledgeable on most beers and are as quick as they can be to serve you. Excellent patio in the back with a little stage for live music. Great place to meet people, and to enjoy a wide variety of beers. Best spot in Houston if you ask me.
