I've only been here once, but I enjoyed my experience. If not for the fact that Austin has so many other choices, I would probably stop by more often. My only complaint, and this has nothing to do with the establishment, is that because they are located downtown, parking can be difficult depending on time of day. I didn't try the food but it looked good. They have a very good selection of beers, but are slightly pricier than other locations around the city. The atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable, with low lighting and music in the background, rather the foreground. The bar tenders are quick to serve you and seem knowledgeable about beer. I wouldn't say it's a must stop in Austin, but if you're staying downtown, it as a great spot to find a good or local beer.

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.
