Visited Ginger Man for the first time tonight after picking out a few draught beers from the list on their website. Very nice atmosphere--low light, nice furniture, good music at a reasonable volume. The wife and I settled down in the back room, and after learning that my first three choices from the website--Avery 16, Real Ale Lost Gold, and New Belgium Dandelion Ale--were all unavailable, settled on North Coast Pranqster and Saint Arnold Root Beer, and later, Sierra Nevada Anniversary.
As mentioned, the draught list and selection seemed good, with a few highlights that didn't pan out. Bottled beers offered even more variety, but seemed a little pricier.
Service was just okay. Our waitress was pleasant, but twice she checked with the bartender when I asked for things off the menu, as she didn't seem to have heard of them before.
Though I was a bit disappointed with availability and service, I would stop back again when downtown, though not before exploring a few other beers bars I've not been to.
