This is an exceptional place. Iíve never seen a place with such a great selction of beers, on tap and in bottles. A lot of these beers are difficult to find. Really nice old pub type atmosphere. The servers were attentive to our needs. The food selection was a little wanting, and a little expensive for what they were offering. (Of course, you go to this place for the beer). The beer is a little pricey of course (anywhere from $7 - $15 a pint depending on waht you order. Still, I had a great time, and tried a few beers I hadnít been able to find previously.

My second Ginger Man. It was good, as expected. Lots of taps, lots of good quality beers. From what I understand, its one of NYCís must stops.

Awesome bar and in a good location (walking distance from Penn). Pretty much this place is all about the taps. ~66 taps and 2 casks, and among these you can find something you want! The tap list is always changing too. Bottle list is exquisite as well, should you ever want to venture away from taps. Good Belgian, Italian, German bottles. Decent prices for the area ($6 for low-class taps, $6.50-$7.50 for most, Belgians and other special beers can go up to $9 or $10, bottles are reasonably priced). Nice atmosphere at early hours, which is when I happened to be there. They have nice couches in the back, which Iíve never used but always look very comfy. Food is good, but there is limited selection and no real pub food. Bartenders seem relatively knowledgable. Oh, btw they have the most awesome growler ever!!! (~$28 but SO worth it, you can get ANY beer on tap!). Definitely stop by because the taps are awesome!!

Regular stop for me when visiting the city. Huge bar and pretty decent size eating area. Never been there when it was uber packed, but have heard the stories. I really like the tap list everytime Iím there. Good mix of local brews, out of state micros and Belgians. Bar staff is friendly and typically knows what they are talkting about. Never ate here, so cant comment on food.

Stopped in on trip to NYC. Very nice looking bar. Nice wood work. Could use some more old posters on the barren walls. Looks more like a classy wine bar than a beer mecca.Staff was attentive & offeredsmall samples. 60 or so taps & nice rare offereings for a WNYer.

The Ginger Man NYC is a geat place. They have an excellent tap list that changes frequently. The service is usually excellent, even when itís busy, and it gets very busy. The staff is knowledgeable. They have a nice lounge with sofas, if you can get a seat. The food is decent, for a bar, if a little pricey. The only problem I can find, and I do think itís a significant one, is with the glassware. And I donít just mean being served my Paulaner Hefe in an English pint, which is annoying. No, the problem is that THEY ARE PUTTING TOO MUCH SLIPPERY SPOT REMOVER OR WATER SOFTENER IN THE GLASS CLEANING SOLUTION. Look around when you are there. You will not see a single beer that has been more than a quarter drunk that has any head on it all. Look around and the top of every beer is flat with basically no lacing. I sure hope they can fix this problem because I have recently moved to New York and am hoping to go there often, but Iíll go there less if this continues. Went again yesterday, had an awesome Ommegang Rouge and my glassware seemed a lot better. Added more points for overall.

A large place in the heart of Midtown, with more taps than any other place in Manhattan. Excellent selection of handles and good service. Afternoon is a fine time to grab a brew, as evenings can really get packed and noisy with Madison Av. types. Havenít tried the food. Nice ambience, with a long bar, numerous tables, and assorted alcoves with sofas and couches. Great place.

I was very impressed with this place, was there on a friday night and it was hopping, with a good mix of people, clearly business people, some locals for the neighbourhood, and our group of tourists from Canada. Had some excellent beers, a cask of the counter for their evening special. They had a good range of beers from the NYC area and across the US, was impressed with the menu and the splitting of the list by styles to help people find beers they may like. The staff also seemed to be pretty beer smart and was able to make recommendations to people at the bar for what they may like.

Great atmosphere - lots of wood, a beautiful wall of taps, tasteful brewing posters/promotional items on the walls. Iíve only been here when its slow - I imagine it could get quite crowded at peak hours. I had a Aecht Festenbier & a Capitan Lawrence Smoked Porter, my fiancee had a Sixpoint Tripel. They offer food but we didnít get any. Attentive and knowledgeable bar staff.
