Quaint little building that appears to have been a house at one time. Sits on a nondescript shaded lane in a busy and affluent part of north downtown Dallas. If you're not paying attention you might drive right by it. Has a nice amount of parking, which can pose a problem in this part of town, so you don't have to worry about that.

Out front was a well shaded patio with 6-7 tables which were about half full with some bearded types, some normal types, and some suits and ties as well. Was a beautiful day in the high 80's and everybody really seemed to be enjoying themselves. Stepping inside you notice the bar to the right, with i'd say, from memory, had about 40 or so taps. The menu wasn't real extensive, and I notice a lack of bigger beers, but no biggie, as there were a decent amount of seasonals and a good amount of local brews from the likes of Rahr, St. Arnold, Live Oak and Real. I dug that, as I always like to get to the Texas brews when I'm down there.

The interior was almost completely wooded, and made for a very rustic feel. There were some regular dart boards to have some fun with. Out back was a Biergarten which was pretty spacious. My wife and I sat in the front and noticed all the locals going to the back, which filled up pretty quick, as did the front after 5 o'clock or so.

Service was exceptional. The girl that waited on us was quick to answer any question I had, and I never waited for a beer, even when the place filled up. I tried three beers, all on tap. I had the Live Oak IPA, the Real Fireman's #4 Blonde, and the Harpoon IPA. The St. Arnold Elissa IPA was noted to be on cask, which really excited me, as I love that beer. Unfortunately, the cask was broken, so no luck this go round. Also, none of the beers I had were close to full to the rim, a point that I'm not going to make a big hullabaloo over, but I do have to note. Either way, I'll go back to the Ginger Man the next time I'm in the area, as it was a pleasant experience overall.

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.
