I visited the Metroplex over the weekend and assurbanipaul suggested I visit the Gingerman. We arrived shortly after the place opened and were the fourth and fifth folks to arrive, if you count the beer salesman having a sandwich at the bar. We seated ourselves at the bar, and we drooled over the selection.

The bartender was Molly, a short, dark haired, no-nonsense lady who had a pretty smile and twinkling eyes. I spotted the Franconia Spelt tap and asked for a pint. She gave me the once over, and said, "Let me pour you a sample first."

Butterscotch beer. And I hate butterscotch. Sigh. Maybe another day, Franconia! Thanks, Molly, for giving me a heads up.

We spent an enjoyable three hours there, chatting with Molly and having beers I just can't get at home. By the time we left the place was packed and coming to life. I wish I lived closer. It seems like a great neighborhood place.

Great Coffee shop meets pub atmosphere. Limited indoor seating but lots of tables outside. Only 2 dart boards but plenty of character and friendly service. The service was a little slow on the night we visited but in their defense they had a large party and a full house of other visitors.

Stopped by on a mid-Friday afternoon. Another chill craft brew spot in FTW.

Since we were in so early, our barkeep was extremely helpul with descriptions and types of beers, offering samples to us visting Coloradans.

Had a nice mix Texas craft brews along with international and US craft staples.

Enjoyed the rustic all-wood look and the couches in the back looked very comforable.

My only complaint was the ability to smoke in the place, which got more annoying as more started sparking up (take that sh*t outside fools, I don't want to be a part of your lung decay).

Aside from the smoking, the atmosphere and selection was top-notch.

Been waiting for a cool day to rate Ginger Man, since it's got a really nice outside area that's unfortunately unbearable June through August. Always a great selection at Ginger Man and they somehow never seem to be out of what they show on the menu. It's a plus that you can purchase their tap beers in pitchers. Food is pretty standard bar faire, good but not great. Servers generally good and helpful but occasionally seem to dissapear without a trace for a half hour at a time. Vibe seems really variable on the half dozen visits I've made - some nights it's almost empty with just a few lonely down and out types sitting at the bar, other nights it's filled to the brim inside and out with young happy professionals. Overall a very enjoyable establishment and seems to get better with every visit.

Stopped in here around 1400 on 15 Aug 2011 after a minor cultural day in Ft. Worth.

Found an empty sixth of Sam Adams in the parking lot on our way in. Got some odd looks as we entered with it. About 60 or so beers on tap, with another 70 in bottles. Well selected but nothing really out of the ordinary. I got the Live Oak Hefe, which was significantly better than the one I had at Crickets a couple of days ago. A got the Franconia Kolsch.

A little dark because all the blinds were drawn. Comfortable leather couch. Wooden bartop, brick and wood floors. Largish collection of empty beer bottles, but w multiple duplicates. A jukebox plays some of your favorite hits. A couple of TVs were showing golf. Darts towards the back left. Some outdoor seating as well.

Bar was a bit smoky even though there were only about three patrons and only one was smoking.
