Nicely lit place that was comfortable and not overcrowded. Very good service with knowledgeable staff. Selection was outstanding. The only tick off a full score is that they have a lot of agreement with certain brewers to not sell growlers of take out beer. I found it unusual that I can buy take our Maine beer in PA but not in NY. Have a nice sandwich (Reuben) that was a nice size for the price. It was a bit pricey but we did buy a growler to take home and had a good number of drinks. Very fun spot that I will definitely go back to if we visit NYC again.

Classic midtown Beer bar. Lots of good beers, some rare, some popular and now, in manhattan, easily accessible. Very straight-laced, midtown money sort of bar and the clientele seems to follow suit. Good beers, good service, but really not my scene.

Located in a very busy part of Manhattan, the Ginger Man gathers tens of young adults on a warm Friday night. The selection is impressive, featuring both US and imported brews. More than 20 draughts, including some features seasonals. Quick and friendly service. A little to noisy but definitely worth a visit.

Awesome decor when you walk in, huge 20 foot ceilings, comfy chairs and couches along with traditional tables. Huge private room that looks great for parties. 70 beers on tap, 2 casks and about 50 bottles. Thankfully they do tasters of 4 so you can get through a decent chunk of them. About a third of the beers are NY locals, the rest are either solid beers or harder to find. No real all stars on today but I was still happy. The bottle list was weak, not sure why they bothered to just provide easily to find standards. The server was cheerful, but not overly conversant on a dead day, not outwardly engaging about beer. The food smells outstanding, eat one of their pretzels. A decent spot overall, but one of the better ones in NYC to come tick or just enjoy a comfortable surrounding.

The best selection I saw on my trip to NYC. Great bar to hang out and I love that they have a rolling beer menu.

The first time I visited (February 2009) this was the last stop of the evening and we were pretty wiped out. The bartender was really nice and after talking for a while (and a few pints) he asked if we’re into lambic. This was while I was active on BA and he was as well. The big surge in popularity in the style happened on that site about that time so this guy was excited to share something with me, which I was grateful for. He said that only about 10 cases were made and so it was extremely rare. I was surprised to see that it was a Hanssens beer. I guess only a few cases made it to the US on the first round but as we’ve all learned they make a lot of beer when they make something. It was pretty good. I just feel bad that I can’t remember the guy’s name anymore.

The second time I visited was just a quick stop to try some IPAs that were on tap. Service was again good but I didnt stay as long. I didnt eat either time and the prices were reasonable. Very cool place over all and I would definitely go back if in NYC again.

Arrived there on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Place was not full but it was still lively with people I think would classify as locals. This place looks like a nice and authentic english pub with all its dark woodwork. Music level was moderate and of good taste (mostly music I grew up to in the 90’s that day). The young lady that served us was professional and always trying to help. I can’t really comment on food but the pretzel and honey mustard I had while I was there were delish (esp. the HONEY mustard). Selection would be hard to match I think, they’ve got almost all styles covered in bottles and a lot of nice products on tap. You can take out bottles, which is awesome and you even get a discount when you do it! Prices are more than fair, $18 for some AleSmith Speedway Stout in a bar? We wouldn’t even get it for twice that around here... This is my kind of place!

A large bar, in all meanings of the word; it’s big, it has a whopping 70 beers on tap and an even bigger bottle list, and it has a lot of patrons. The place has a rather traditional “bary” look, with lots of beer related décor so well integrated it’s almost part of the furniture. The sheer number of beer, and the fact that the Ginger Man seems to focus on covering a large number of styles, as well as geographic diversity at any time, makes it hard to really fail getting what one wants. Still, with this in mind it does not seem all that easy to find anything really extraordinary here. Staff is not very attentive, although they do get what you want. Prices are decent, and the all over value is quite ok.

Great spot! Was lively around 10pm on a Thursday night. Lost of taps with great variety and almost universally interesting/solid beer. Nice bottle list as well. Prices were ok and service was attentive and friendly.
