Was visiting Austin and as always have to find my way to one of the local beer spots. BA pointed me towards The Ginger Man.

Very cool dark feel inside. Once you walk in there is a rectangular bar that is narrow and extends for a way towards the back of the building. Near the entrance there is a nice living room like area with some couches a couple of TVs and some books plus some cool bear-themed decorations.

The selection and quality were good as far as I could tell. A decent amount of locals with some of the more readily available crafts like Blvd, Chimay, etc.

The atmosphere was chill, warm and inviting. I would definitely frequent this place if I lived here.

They have a bear garden and more wide seating areas at the back of the building but I stayed near the front for the most part.

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.
