Visited on a Friday evening in August. Place was packed. Great assortment of taps. Super busy bartenders. Would definitely like to back when I had more time.

Go for the most diverse beer selection in New York City, leave because they refuse to own a single TV in the establishment. The casually-dressed staff members don’t have time to be friendly, as the place is beyond crowded with anybody but beer fanatics. Ask the staff if they serve more than five different beers in one night, and they’ll most likely tell you they’ve only sold Bud or Bud Light, despite the mad number of taps they have. By the way, "Everything you know about beer is wrong." as stated by one of the managers. New staff members have to take a two week long class on beer while they train, no excuses. Funny, how when I asked what an IPA was they didn’t seem to know what it stood for. #4 on 10102009 DG.

Not a huge fan. Always ridiculously busy, usually only one beer i want to try from their huge tap list, Bottle list is not exactly easiest to figure out sizes of bottles, and not a lot of time to ask questions bar tenders will just move on. Update, really like this place, events can be great. Unfortunately otherwise still 70 taps with nothing new on. Although always something good.

Classic wood bar with plenty of bar stools and tables, but can get pretty crowded on weekends. Impressive beer list (had the cask Storm King)...value good for Manhattan. Barkeeps seem to know their stuff and will give you samples if you ask.

I was finally able to get to The Ginger Man bar this past weekend. The place has a great ambiance - tall ceilings, lots of big wooden tables, and a lounge area towards the rear with a bunch of couches. The beer menu is impressive boasting rareties, seasonals, and vintage bottles. The pricing isnt ridiculous. Service is good.

Great place on 36th. Outside not most welcoming but inside super classy. 70 taps for you to choose from, server’s friendly and beer knowledgeable. Clean, spotless. Good value with 4 brew sampler set fro 11 $. Interesting line up, something for everybody. Often found hidden gems… Must visit when in NY

Seriously mixed feelings about this place. 1st why is it in midtown, why oh why, if i still lived in NYC I’d cry that I had to schlep here. 2 its too damn load, get some sound padding and allow me to hear my self think. 3rd though tap list is quite nice and prolific, bottles are pretty good too and prices are better if only by a little compared to Rattle N’ Hum. Bottle List meets a clear pet peeve for me though. Why list size of the bottle only next to 750mls as 25ozs and not next to others. Where clearly some are 12oz and some are 22oz. If the price difference between a 12oz and a 22oz is 2 or 3 bucks thats a big difference in the amount of beer your going to get so should know. All told I didn’t get to experience this to the fullest but it passes muster and begs me to come back if only to find something as hard as it is that I have yet to have. Plus hitachino nest on tap is impressive (and alesmith in bottles is fun from my SD perspective).

Modern, spacious alehouse in downtown Manhattan. Very friendly knowledgeable staff with a professional attitude. Although large, the building is made all the more intimate by use of cream paint and plentiful wood plus 100% tungsten illumination. Beer range was second to none. I enjoyed five draught beers out of a choice of SEVENTY and in at least one of those choices staff expertise proved essential. I visited on 25th July. It was a Saturday night and the pub attracted a fairly boisterous crowd after around 10pm. From the food menu I enjoyed the bratwurst platter with sauerkraut, salads and baguette. I’d give my delicious meal 8/10 - a perfect accompaniment to beer. I recommend a visit and, in addition, that you arrive early enough to get yourself a seat at the bar if visiting alone. Another of New York City’s best!

I went on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm and got the last two seats at the bar. The place crowded up behind me, but no one crowded me too much or was overly obnoxious. The beer list is huge, of high quality, and ever changing. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and are willing to help, although at more crowded times they’re of course too busy to give one person too much attention. I told the bartender we were looking for sours in the Ommegang Rouge family, and she went straight to the tap and gave us 3 samples free of charge. Very good stuff, and I’ll definitely be going back at opportune times.

It’s way too crowded after work, but very nice for lunch. The food is minimal (they have one or two decent sandwiches) but the beer is fantastic!

This is one of my favorite beer bars in the city. Its great early on a Sunday when its quiet and you can sit a the bar and talk to the bartenders or wait staff. They have a superb selection served in proper glassware and the staff is very knowledgeable allowing them to make great suggestions that always surprise me. The one downside is the food choices are minimal but this is a place you go for the beer not for the food.
