Dropped in late on a Saturday night. There was a good crown but it was not packed and our group was able to grab seats at the bar. Huge wall of taps, I would guess about 50. Almost all craft or imports. They have an even larger bottle selection. Had a few of the Texas breweries represented (St Arnold, Southern Star, and Live Oak) as well as a wide selection of other crafts. I had a Live Oak Hefe, Vitus, and finished the night with the old standby, SN Pale Ale. Barteneder knew what she was talking about and made a couple of good recommendations to the friends I was there with.

Place has a few TV's, darts, and a real nice porch with tables. It is in Rice Village amongst quite a few more bars. Little 'upper class' but not pretentious by any means.

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.
