The Ginger Man is a fantastic place to spend a few hours drinking some great beer. A large selection of micro brews and a great patio equals an amazing time. You definitely aren’t coming here to eat as they have about 6 items on their food menu, but you stay for their wide variety of beers from all over the world.
The Ginger Man is located in Rice Village and is a Houston institution predating the craft craze. Indoor and outdoor seating, some excellent bar food to compliment a pleasant array of beer. Always a few new beers rotating through. A nice selection of Belgian beers. Exactly what you would expect and want from a small university area beer bar where you can come and have some great beer and conversations with friends. If you're looking for an upscale restaurant and ridiculous beer selection, this ain't your place. Small, quaint, local feel. For that genre, they nail it.
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 don’t know what you want. They have many special beers and seasonal, rotating beers, and all beers are fairly priced. I think I’ve had just about every beer on the tap list in all the styles I like.
Damn fine seletion of beer (not the biggest) but large and you are likely to find at least half a dozen beers you love. The servers know beer. Fresh beer & clean taps!!!
Not much food but what they do have is good not to mention its a major shopping area with may food options. I love the bar and ambiance but the crowd may seem out of place from time to time. Lots of outdoor seating in front and rear of bar a big plus in my book!
nice laid back underlit bar. but they have a beer garden if it gets too dank for you" but, moe, the dank. the dank"- carl carlson. nice selection, a nice knowledgeable staff. hell even the other customers were cool and the jukebox had some nice tunes rolling too.
Another one of my favorite pubs. Great beer selection, great service every time I have been there (6+), great atmosphere. The waitresses have always been friendly. Great porch in the back, with heaters in teh Winter. A very welcoming place.
Fantastic bar with an incredible selection, good service and decent bar food. The beer selection is second to none in Houston, and although busy, the service is relatively quick and friendly, and they have a good memory. You can become a regular after just a couple of visits. Plenty of academics and doctors from Rice and the Texas Medical Center which are virtually next door. Can’t believe it hadn’t been rated already. It’s within walking distance of all of Rice Village so its easy to grab a pint here before or after dinner.
This place was great. Had a definite feel to it. Reminded me a little of a smaller Brickskeller (in DC). A diverse set of people, drinking from thier diverse set of taps. They had some locals and some hard finds in Texas (Belgian in particular).
Especially when considering how busy it was, the service was good to great.
