3.18/5  rDev -24.8%
vibe: 2 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3 | selection: 3.5 | $$$$

I have been to this place more than a few times over the years for two reasons. One I have had a few friends who work in midtown. Two they know I love good beer and the Gingerman has a wide selection. However given these things, I don't really like the place.

The atomosphere is decent enough aesthetically I suppose, high ceilings and a generally nice decor. However there is some sort of dull quality here. Not quite generic but sort of dull despite the decent trappings. On slow days the place is just that, but with no convivial feel. On crowded days it is hell on Earth, filled with midtown banker types who don't really seem to like beer. The types of people who will rave about mediocre beer X from country Z for the sole fact that they think others have not heard of it thereby giving it cachet.

The bartenders are quick enough but have never seemed too friendly which adds to the antiseptic like feel.

Selection wise they have a lot of beers. They even have some beers a BA may have not had and appreciate. This literally saves the place for me. Other than that they have a wide selection of mediocre beers that really won't thrill you other than by sheer volume.

On my last visit a Rogue Hazelnut was $7.50 I believe.

Don't get fooled by the sheer number of beers here, this place really is not that special.
