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.

Its a great place, even though its always crowded. The atmosphere is great and the staff knows about beer and are always willing to help.
They have an amazing beer selection.
Food is not that good, but its all about the beer anyway, right?
The only thing i didnt like is that sometimes they are out of some beers.
Its a must if you are in Austin.

I have been here twice now while on business. A great place to belly up, many passionate beer drinkers. Awesome outside area as well. Very interesting and eclectic layout. Has the ole modernized 18th century style English pub look. Two hearted, sculpin, liefmans Flanders, 60min/ 90min, Hoptimum etc... A handful of locals. A must go if staying in downtown or south Austin.
