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.

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.
