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. Iíd 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 Cityís 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 theyíre 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 Iíll definitely be going back at opportune times.

Itís 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.

Just made my first trip to the Ginger Man, and I enjoyed it. Its a really solid beer bar, not great prices, but these are decent prices (considering the location). It was a Saturday afternoon/early evening, so I canít comment on the night time or weekday happy hour scenes, but I had a good time. A really nice place to grab a tap brew, and some relatively unusual choices.

NYbeer  (11) | June 6, 2009
I have been going to the Gingerman for many years. They have about 70 different taps and usually have a very diverse selection. Prices are a little expensive but to be expected given the location. They do offer Flights of beer for $11... you get four 4.5 ounce samples of any of their draught beers. This is a great deal since some of their draught offerings are $9 per 12 oz serving. Service is usually efficient with an occasional bad attitude depending who is behind the bar. Best time to come is the afternoon. Bar gets extremely crowded after work.

Spent a Thursday afternoon and early evening with my wife at the ginger man and we were really impressed. The service was top notch, got to chat about beer with the server and then the manager for a long time when it was quiet, but then when it got crowded still got quick service whenever we wanted. Our server mentioned to us that its more of a winter bar and I agree - the colours and space work great but when its nice outside it would be better if you could open the windows and sit outside. As for the selection the number of taps were great and their was a huge variety in bottles. I thought some of the stuff was over priced (even taking into account that its NYC) but the really rare bottles were almost sold at cost ($25 for a Dark Horizon 2nd). Be warned, there isnít a lot of meal "foods" but enough to snack on if you go there early and then somewhere else after. Also it gets crowded with the after work crowd and quite noisy so if that isnít your thing then go early or maybe

DerWeg  (45) Toronto, Ontario | May 15, 2009
Exceedingly good. On my NYC stay I may have had over a dozen beers on 4-5 visits, many from íflightsí of four 4-oz samples. Condition and presentation of the wide selection of draft and a few beers is delectable fresh and subtle. Some taps selections were not only on the rare side generally AND for me as a Toronto-dweller, but also revelatory of what the USA Craft Bee scene is all about. I was the íbeer initiateí who arrived truly prepared to appreciate such a place!! Bottle selection mirrors the excellent local bottle shops for the most part and is good, & priced moderate to expensive. Draught beer cost is average to slightly high in local terms, and generally worth it. Great ambiance, not too much attitude. Avoid the six-to-ten oíclock rush if you want elbow room to contemplate your pint or to order a flight - I stayed away from crowds so canít comment on othersí misadventures. BEER MECCA.

Went here on a Saturday night and it was OBNOXIOUS. Makes Fatherís Office in Santa Monica look tame. Awesome tap and bottle list, but be prepared to stand and constantly be bumped into by hipsters. The service was decent, but I highly recommend you go in the afternoon, if possible. Oh, and their growlers are medieval. RE-RATE: Went on an afternoon, like I anticipated would happen, and this place was amazing. Awesome atmosphere and tap list. Best in the city, really.

This ended up being the favorite out of my trip to NYC. Ginger man is huge by Manhattan standards with lots of taps. The inside is very nice and new. One of the neat things is that they print out their updated tap list daily and have them at every table, so that you donít have to walk up to see the chalkboard each time you want to choose another beer. Their selection was very good with several beers I hadnít seen on tap before. Beers were fairly expensive, especially for their "Specialty Beers" list, whcih is where most of the beers I wanted were. I think most were around $8-9 for a 12 oz tulip. They have a small menu and the only thing we ordered were chips, so I canít really comment on their food per se. It got really busy around happy hour with standing room only. I really enjoyed this place; so much so that we came back a second time during our trip. Definitely go if you are in NYC.

nramsburg  (15) New York, New York | April 12, 2009
The Gingerman is a reason to visit Murray Hill. Actually, itís the Only reason to ever visit it. But itís truly an excellent reason. The Ginger Man has, from what Iíve seen, the most impressive tap selection in New York. The Blind Tiger may have history, and a few Bklyn (Spuyten Duvil, Bar Great Harry, etc.) have truly well chosen if not extensive selections. But theyíre not the Ginger Man. Itís actually a bit overwhelming. Iíve never seen anything like it in this country. Seasonals, real ales, hard-to-find -- theyíre all here. Tons of bottle as well. And growlers to go. The staff is into beer and will discuss it with you at length. Itís midtown so itís not a great value but thatís to be expected. As I mentioned, the location is horrid -- post-collegiate iWankers -- so be sure to go on an off-peak period. You wonít be disappointed.
