4.2/5  rDev -1.4%

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.
