Met MaxxDaddy, jredmond and jtclockwork here, pleasure drinking with you gentlemen! This is a large place with huge storefront style windows, giving the place a bright, open and airy feel. The bar is a huge wood L shaped affair, with restaurant style table up front and along the sides. Solid beer list with flights of four available for $14. Plenty of NY choices but also some stuff from near and far. Interesting bottles as well. Good service. Didn’t try the food. Great place.

Visited on 30th September 2017. Decent sized bar in Midtown. First stop on this trip as we were staying nearby. Sort of an S shaped bar which was really busy when we arrived but found a table in the back room. Decor is pretty decent and it has a nice homely feel to the place. Beer range is excellent and flights are available, 4 beers for $15. Lots of local beers on tap plus a few from around the USA. Prices are decent. Service was prompt and friendly. There's lots of choice here and definitely one not to miss.

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.

Ferris  (1458) Burnaby, British Columbia | February 13, 2015
Stunning old school speakeasy vibe with a lounge area and a huge bar. Tons of taps and a few casks, one of the better lists in the city. Service was nice but not particularly helpful. Seems to be the norm for NYC. Prices were high but also the norm for the area. A great place to visit in. Manhattan.

Sweet bar with an impressive tap line-up, on my recent visit anyway. A great spot to find NY breweries and a good selection too. Of course, there’s also breweries from further afield and Ginger Man seems to get the balance right. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and we had a great chat during my time there. A comfortable setting and warrants a few beers here.

Visited in the mid-afternoon on a Saturday, and the place was maybe half-full. Extremely impressive setup, with plenty of seating and an impeccable taplist. With this many taps, you’d expect some garbage, but almost everything looked great. You can do flights of 4 x 5 oz. pours for $14 -- steep, but not too ridiculous for Manhattan. Service was a bit snooty, but quick and helpful. An essential stop when in the big city.

First bar I drank in on my first visit to NYC in ’05 and have been back a dozen or more times since, most recently inlate May ’12. Average sized bar that gets crowded after office hours but you can usually pick up a bar stool or table before 4.30/5 and after 8/9. 70 or so taps and a solid bottle list. Pints are Imperial UK 20oz pours (unless otherwise stated) so bear this in mind if you think things are a little pricier compared to other establsishments! Service has always been decent and the serving waitresses always tend to know there beers (I’ve seen them tasting new beers when coming on shift) and if they don’t they won’t blag and will ask for you! Food menu tends to be more pub style, sandwiches/salads etc. I love the Ginger Man hot dog - a good beer soaker for around $5! Great place and always a great atmosphere in the evening.

Certainly one of the top beer bars in the greater NYC area. Selection is unparalleled - 56 (?) tap lines and numerous bottles as well. Prices are a little steep on some items, but for the most part par for the course.

Another NY landmark institution type place. Walking into the place I said to myself. "if my grandmother ran a craft beer bar it would like kind of like this." between the high ceilings and the massive wooden bar they had a. Number of wingback chairs and a room in the back looked a bit like rural Irish pub. They had over 60 taps including a number of seasonal and unusual beers. The prices were NY quality but all in all this is a pretty awesome place.

A great place, nice atmosphere, open and airy feel with high ceiling and large windows. Classic brown wooden interior, but not to dark. Long bar counter and information about local draft beers on the chalkboard. Nice service, but four 5 oz samplers for $14 is a bit expensive, as all over NYC. When I left Rattle’n Hum there were very few customers, The Ginger Man was far better visited, many having lunch. And best of all, a craft beer bar without tv screens with sports! Lovely, but rare "over here" (Visited June 22nd 2016)
