Visited February 2012.

Another Ginger Man visited, this one in Dallas. Similar lay out as the rest. Dark interior, good music on the jukebox (mostly classic rock on this one), lots of beers to pick from, decent service, and decent food. The beer list is extensive but like all the locations not the most inventive. You can get half a dozen Stone, New Belgium, and Shiner taps along with a few of the other local breweries that donít have tasting rooms. The draft list is definitely a "bigger is better" concept. All that said itís still a fun place to hang out and theyíll do samples. There is a nice patio to hang out on as well.

The best place for beer Iíve found in Dallas. Nice atmopshere with a lot of seating outside, both in front and with the section in back and on the roof. The beer selection looked good but they were out of some choice offerings when I visited. I sampled the Live Oak Liberation IPA and the brand new Bigfoot 05 on draft. I will visit this place again when in town.

The Ginger Man Dallas location is the 3rd I have been lucky enough to visit. It is located on Boll Street in Uptown Dallas. We took Uber there so not sure about the parking situation, appeared to be a small lot for Ginger Man but mostly street.

The red house has a porch outside, and opens immediately to the bar area. The bar is on the right, and there are tables and booths on the left. A chalkboard runs along the top of the bar listing the beers on draught, and tap handles are visible behind it. There is a large beer garden in the back too.

As far as the tap list there are around 75, with many Texan breweries represented (starred on the beer menu), including Rabbit Hole, Real Ale, Deep Ellum, Rahr, St. Arnold, (512) and Revolver. There are a couple cask offerings and many seasonals. Flights are available, including a Belgian, European and Texas Seasonal. The bottled menu is around 100 with a mix of domestic and imports from all over.

Service on a busy Friday night was pretty good. The server was on top of things and had a pretty good grasp of the beer menu. Ginger Man does many beer events so they are obviously invested in the scene.

We did not try any food on our visit.

Overall I am a fan of Ginger Man, and the Dallas location is a worthwhile spot to visit in the downtown area.

They have a good selection on tap, so I can try some 8 more different beers; the waitress is kind enough to give me samplers; and, 3rd pub in Dallas, this as well is so cute!
But most of all I like the atmosphere: itís a Sunday night, December, and outside is warmer than indoor! with a nice patio and a lot of wood; really a warm place (reminds me somehow another nice place in Singapore, the Wine Arcade).

Visited early afternoon on a Wednesday. Cool older building just outside of the downtown Dallas core. Street parking and a decent Ginger Man only parking lot. Indoors is am comfy two story house layout, with a long bar. Patio in front, beer garden in back. It was a sunny day so I sat out pack and had a couple beers while I got work done. Service was great, laid back vibe. I liked this place a lot.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Visited on a very hot afternoon. I visited quite early in the day, and had the run of the place pretty much to myself. My bartender was quite nice, and happy to offer samples. I canít comment on how it is when itís actually busy, but I found the ambiance laid back and pleasant. The jukebox has some nice options, and there seemed to be a pretty nice beer garden out back. The tap selection was pretty solid, though I heard some grumblings that it doesnít turn over as much as it used to. On my visit I enjoyed some nice locals from 512. They also offer some macro stuff in addition to all the craft offerings, something the other craft places in Dallas didnít seem to do. Overall, The Ginger Man feels a little more scruffy than some of the other places I visited in Dallas, but itís definitely worth a look in.

Craft beer pub located in Uptown Dallas. Interior is pretty standard - dimly lit, lots of wood and old beer paraphernalia. I have to concede the outside area at the back was pretty cool and the atmosphere and service was good. The draft range is pretty impressive and had quite a few decent brews, but on my last they visit they didnít have anything particularly rare or outstanding. The bottle selection is also pretty wide-ranging but has the same problem as the draught range. All in all itís a top venue in the Dallas beer scene.

Went in on a Friday afternoon, smokey atmosphere, nice beer garden outside. Server was a bit pompous, and not as knowledgable as he was trying to portray. Tap list was out of date, didnít have the first three things we tried to order. Finally got a Franconia Oktoberfest and St. Bernardus 12 (on tap). The list would be good if they had everything the list, it would be great... Bottles were not too interesting. Food looked good, but we didnít try it. Beer was well priced. Seemed like most of the taps were devoted to the Oktoberfest seasonal festival, sadly marzens are not my favorite style.

Best beer place I could find in Dallas. I liked the beer garden in particular. Quite good beer selection and food is good too.

Dropped by here with Mar after a tasting at the Covey. Parking was a bit tight since it is in an older part of town. The building is rather old too but with charm-o-plenty. It seemed to have a southern home sort of feel as you ascend the stairs to a front porch sort of area and then entered the space. Busy place where there was just enough room at the bar for a few more. You seem to creak across the wood floors as you move around. The place seemed friendly and the staff was efficient. Decent enough selection where a few local offerings are highlighted. Nifty experience. Iíll be back here if I make it to this part of the country again.
