Stopped in the Ginger Man last night on a Tuesday around 6PM, and it was pretty packed. I had a pretty good time and the atmosphere was good, but not as fun as Rattle n Hum 3 blocks away in my opinion.
In terms of the quality of the beer and the selection, I would put it right on par with Rattle N Hum, and would give The Ginger Man an edge in their non-US bottle list. I had a Captain Lawrence Espresso Stout on tap which was very good, and they had a lot of styles represented. Saw some good sours and Belgians on the bottle list that impressed me.
Prices were pretty reasonable, as I was expecting worse from a NYC beer bar.
Overall a very good beer bar with a great selection. Personally I enjoy Rattle n Hum more, but considering these 2 bars are three blocks from each other, it's well worth hitting up both of them in the same session. I would especially hit up Ginger Man if you're looking for non-U.S. beers.
