I went to the Ginger Man with my Ole' Lady, she was thirsty like a viking. We had New Belgium 1554 and I had the Avery Kaiser on draft. , and both poured wonderfully. We went on a thursday afternoon, and we missed the happy hour by minutes. The drinks were smooth and memorable. We ended up sitting outdoors, but there was a lively crowd of beer drinkers so we didn't mind much. My Ole Lady was ravenous, she wanted more suds, I wanted more rauchbiers, we settled by splitting a cheese plate and and a Deschutes Black Butte Porter(highly recommended) I like this place. It's where a man can not only wet his whistle, but get his whistle wetted. Might I recommend having a cold one outdoors, because thats were the lively conversation begins, and the debauchery reigns. I recommend this bar, for the service, selection, value, and good times. Make mine a Rauch

This place has a huge L shaped bar with a grey stone top and can easily seat about 20 or more patrons. Very dark interior as the lights are kept very low. Some dart boards line the walls, and there are a bunch of tables off the bar area. There is also an outdoor seating area where a bunch of people were taking their drinks.

They had to have about 80 beers on draft, so you will find something to your liking. I had several pints over two days, and each one was fresh as the beer seems to move here despite the large number of drafts.

The bartender was very friendly and prompt with her service. She also seemed to understand the styles she was serving. Only had an appetizer here which was good. This is a worthwhile stop in the downtown area.
