Popped by The Ginger Man on the second night of our stay in Manhattan. A Wednesday night and the place was rammed, whole lot of 20-something singles and looked like a few of the 'pick-up' joints I've come across here in Toronto. Massive tap list (70+!!) and some casks. Bottle list adds about 100+ more to that, so the selection is there and representative of most of the United States and the better part of the beer world in most respects. Fantastic. Ambiance was a different story. Loud, drunk and obnoxious young crowd screaming and shouting obscenities at each other around us. Maybe not representative of the place on a regular basis, but was not the best thing to have going on around you when you're on vacation with your mom. Service was just as bad, server visited us twice over the course of an hour and half, first to get our drink/meal orders and then to give us our check. Impossible to flag this lady down for anything, certainly subpar and not worthy of a moderate tip. Stayed for a pint and a quick pint, as I had trouble putting up with this any longer. Dim lighting didn't help either. Food was okay, but nothing to write home about. Overall, something I could revisit midday when certainly less busy just for the selection, if anything. Great beer, marred by poor service and a less than desirable evening crowd.

Best Mid-Town bar. Casket-treated beers are awesome. Excellent whiskey menu also!

Had some time to kill waiting for my train from Penn Station, so I picked this place over the other pubs on the same street based on their advertisement for Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Silly but I guess advertisement works.

Atmosphere - Nice and comfortable, booths, tables, or bar. I chose table by an outlet to recharge phone.

Quality - Club sandwich was tasty, perfect to compliment my flight of four beers

Service - Waitress was knowledgable and friendly.

Beer selection was great, had beers not available in NH.

Overall I would recommend and go back if in the area again.
