Was really looking forward to checking this place out...

Atmosphere is alright, patio out back with some space heaters with wooden tables and benches. Its alot like little woodrows, but less cozy.

For having 100+ taps I was really disappointed at the selection, there are very few *really* good beers on tap and in bottles. They have a diverse selection of mediocre stuff that you can find everywhere. No limited releases or rare stuff.

I got a chicken and spinach flatbread pizza that was pretty good, the spinach and artichoke dip was good too, no complaints in the food department.

Ginger man is like a little woodrows with a few more taps, I really expected a better beer selection.

Its a nice place to hit up in the rice village area but if you want the best selection, check elsewhere.

The Ginger Man is a hidden gem right in the middle of the Rice Village. Its right next to the other douchebag bars that make up the rest of the street. But the great thing about The Ginger Man is that most of the people that go in there for a beer realize how great of a place it is. Of course there are the people that go in there and even with all of the taps on the wall still want a BMC lite but for the most part theres a good mix of people that enjoy great beer and some good ol beer nerds. Good music, great patio out back and live music outside everyonce in a while.

The service is really great and they are always willing to help you select a beer. They have a good selection of the good Texas beers and alot of others from around the country as well. Probably about 100 bottles to select from that are predominantly German and Belgian. Bottom line is that you will definitely be able to find a beer to meet your craving once in side.

I went to college in Houston and lived about a mile away from here. It is/was one of my favorite spots to grab a beer around town.
