Atmosphere is pretty good. There's plenty of restaurant-like seating, a long bar, a lounge type sitting area, and plenty of outside sitting...which is pretty cool. It's one of those dimly lit pubs though, which makes it difficult to view your beer well...and if your mighty tired, the low light makes fighting sleepiness a bit of a challenge lol Selection is monstrous though, and most is good quality stuff, with some more run of the mill stuff in the mix as well...but fantastic over all. Service was good, though with how crowded it gets, it can make for some slow beer purchases though. Small price to pay in the end for one of the most exceptional tap lists in the city.

Made a quick stop downtown on my way to Rainey Street to check out the Ginger Man. Atmosphere was pretty solid, only a few people inside at the bar while the rest were out back enjoying the nice weather. Quality was pretty high, nice building inside and out and the beers were all served in correct glasses. Service was good, had to wait a bit for my bill but they were just starting an event and it was becoming a bit hectic. Selection was pretty good, beers from all over the world as well as plenty from TX. Prices were on par with all of the other bars I visited in the area. Overall an awesome beer bar in the heart of the city, I would definitely return if I am ever in the area again.
