I had half a day to kill after a conference in Dallas and was looking for a place to grab some brews. As Dallas is not really a manageable pedestrian city, my choices were limited without a car. With the help of some Texas BAs I was directed to the Ginger Man. It was close enough to the Hyatt Regency where I could take the hotel shuttle or walk it. Being such a nice day I figured it would be a good way to see the city. With a slight detour to the Book Depository and Grassy Knoll, I was at the bar in about 40 minutes.

After that walk I was a bit parched and sat down for a Real Ale Full Moon, my first ever and it did not disappoint. Over the course of the next couple of hours I enjoyed beers by Live Oak(another winner), Real Ale and a St Arnold's Cask IPA which was put on near the end of my stay. Texas brews were well represented as were harder to find imports and the normal range of US micros. A steady stream of happy hour and regulars strolled through and were good to talk with. The young ladies who were serving me were very nice and the one doing the training was very knowledgable about beer. The rest of the crowd was a mix of hipsters and suits which skewed younger as the night wore on. Not quite as douchey as their NYC location.

The cool part about the place is the amount of outdoor space . There is a full back with plenty of benches and a nice front porch area with tables to overlook the sleepy little street. The insiode had full AC which was a nice respite to the hot Tejas sun. Prices were reasonable but definitely on the expensive side for the city.

I would definitely recommend this to tourists and locals alike. Had I not been traveling this might have gotten a lower selection score. The range of TX brews unavailable to me were the only ones I drank but other than those there wasn't anything earth shattering. Still that was enough for me to enjoy myself.

Great selection of beer, both on top and bottled. Love the way the menu is setup, listing draught beers by type and bottled beers by country. Ask the waitress about the seasonal beers they have not listed on the menu and she'll steer you in the right direction. The beer garden atmosphere in the back is hard to be matched in Dallas. The German style pretzels are amazing. Quality place right here.
