The first thing that jumped out was their outdoor patio area, followed by the extensive wooden front porch with the entry in its center. Entering, the 1/2 octagonal-shaped bar was directly to the left with standard tables and chairs to the right. The back bar was a seemingly endless row of tap handles. The top of the overhead held a shelf of spent bottles that snaked around the entire interior. There was a CD jukebox 1/3 of the way aft on the right and an English dartboard all of the way aft on the right. Lots of fantastic colored chalk signage in the overhead. Glassware was also on display. They also had an extensive outdoor patio out back with picnic tables and an Oktoberfest mural to the right.

They had a great educated clientele, both in terms of beer and their collegiate specialties.

Food: The Brewers' Plate was an amalgam of tastes, textures, and colors. It was absolutely wild! I actually got tired of eating.

Beers: 69 taps, 125 bottles, 1 cask. St. Arnold's is always on cask.

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.
