vibe: 5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4

First discovered this gem when they graciously oped up there doors to the Houston BA's for our monthly tastings; awesome place and awesome people! .. . Selection is top notch, only beat out by the saucer, but this place has that cozy friends house kinda feel .. . always have a cask beer, a plus ... . they offer chips,pretzels and a cheese plate they will do in a pinch, or you can order a pizza or bring in a burger, they are cool about it .. . overall: fantastic beer selection for Houston, and they treat their rowdy BA's like kings!!! .. recommended for sure, one of my favourite stops...

This is nice place. Comfortable, homey, a bit rustic, right in the middle of the Rice University area. The service was a bit grudging but reasonable. Beer selection was good, even though my fist two choices on their list was not available. The food was pedestrian. Granted I got the beer companion which was mostly cheese (which I would bet came from the local Kroger). The hummus was good, needed a few more pita chips. Overall, enjoyed the draft Tank 7 and Chimay Dorsee.

Was really looking forward to checking this place out...

Atmosphere is alright, patio out back with some space heaters with wooden tables and benches. Its alot like little woodrows, but less cozy.

For having 100+ taps I was really disappointed at the selection, there are very few *really* good beers on tap and in bottles. They have a diverse selection of mediocre stuff that you can find everywhere. No limited releases or rare stuff.

I got a chicken and spinach flatbread pizza that was pretty good, the spinach and artichoke dip was good too, no complaints in the food department.

Ginger man is like a little woodrows with a few more taps, I really expected a better beer selection.

Its a nice place to hit up in the rice village area but if you want the best selection, check elsewhere.
