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.

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.
