Stopped in here right after Rattle since it was so close by. Atmosphere was hopping. As we entered we were greeted with a mass of people four deep at the bar. I almost turned around and walked back out but I saw a small space at the end of bar to stand in so we went for it. Quality seemed pretty high. Selection was killer, I was finally able to try my first Peekskill beer so that was a big plus. Prices were high but thats the norm in this city. Service was slow but with that many people I could understand a bit. After trying to get a second beer for almost ten minutes we were over it and decided to bag it and head somewhere else. Overall I would like to return in the future and give it another go, hopefully with a lot less people around.

I've been to the Ginger Man a handful of times and the reason I love coming back is there huge and constantly rotating craft beer list. Their beer bible is a pleasure to go through and they have enough taps that it would be difficult to get through them all in a single weekend. It's the place I take out of town friends to when they want to go to a craft bar in the city. With that being said it's a well known place and it gets crowded. It can often take a while to get a table especially on the weekends. As expected the service slows but the waitresses always seem to be upbeat and friendly. The food isn't anything to write home about but it is capable of contending the occasional beer munchies.
