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.

Laid back beer bar in Manhattan. Good selection of domestic craft and foreign beers on tap. Bottled selection, especially foreign, is extensive as well. Sat at the bar and service was OK during my visit. Menu is limited, but food was good. Worth stopping by.

Great NYC beer bar...one of my longtime favorites in Manhattan (although the Tiger is in a class of it’s own). Although I’ve been here many times I’d never written a review...so I went on 7/27/13 to make sure I was up to date. The selections are still great. I tried a few beers as well as a flight. The staff was attentive and very helpful. I like the decor of this place and the large bar. Although I did not order food this time...the menu had not changed much since a previous visit...good food...but limited menu. All in all I would always include the Gingerman in any recommendations for a Manhattan craft beer tour.

This place is real special.
I had been to the Gingerman in Dallas which didn’t quite cut it for me.
Came in for lunch. Impressive tap list. Nice service. Friendly mellow vibe. Good A/C. Perfect respite on a hot summer day and not disappointed.

Stopped in for lunch when I was in town for Savor and it was great. Tons of fresh and interesting beers on tap—70 if I remember correctly—and their flights are priced attractively enough that I ended up half sloshed when I checked into the hotel.
I only had a pretzel and hot dog but they were cheap and tasty—what street food would taste like in a perfect world.
The barkeep was obviously struggling to keep up but got everyone taken care of in a reasonable amount of time. He was apologetic and amusing at the same time.
