Awesome place. We stopped in here the night before a Texan's game. The location is great...Rice University area, about 2 miles from Reliant Stadium.

Exactly what you'd want a pub to look like...a lot of wood, two outdoor patio areas, a small one in front, and a larger one in the back.

Fantastic selection of bottle and draught beers.

Kind of a young crowd, but seeing as the location was in the middle of Rice, that was not shocking.

The place was pretty packed by the time we left (11pm or so), so it made ordering or getting excellent service a bit difficult, but the staff was quite friendly.

This place is fantastic. It’s small and rustic with all worn wood surfaces. The place doesn’t seat many people at all and only has a limited bar-bite style menu but the beer selection is outstanding and the vibe is perfect. Lots of local beers on tap along with a nice variety of high quality crafts from around the world. Definitely a favorite in the Rice University area.

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.
