Cool little place, met up with some dear friends here for the first time after a brief stop at the Pony. High ceilinged, plenty of taps, pretty crowded around 7 on a Tuesday. Good place. Got myself a Founders Impy Stout and hung out, wandering about a bit before my friends arrived. A sexy crowd of folks dressed to impress. Hey we are in the Garment District, yeah? Price on the taps was pretty high $6-9 for a 12 oz or pint, but not unreasonable for the City. Had a merry time once we rocked ourselves easily into a table after standing and laughing for a while. Good mix of styles, but not everything was exceptionally exciting. Always nice to have the Founders though, and I drank more than enough of that. Fun subway ride back to the BK. Will definitely go back, just not sure how often..

So many brews on tap. It's a beer lovers dream come true. Huge bottle list as well. The bartenders are pros as well. Each beer in the proper glassware.

The Ginger Man is, without a doubt, one of the prime craft beer locations in Midtown Manhattan. My job takes into the city 10-15 days a year and The Ginger Man is almost always my watering hole of choice.

The interior is pretty the platonic ideal of the classic pub. Lots of wood and the expected pub decor. Every time that I've been there it's been packed or near packed, though I will say that I'm nearly always there around 5 PM on weekdays, so that likely accounts for some of it.

The selection is fantastic. 70ish taps, with a good variety of local, regional, and national craft, along with British, Belgian, and German highlights. Best of all, there's always two casks on handpump, which is what I tend to gravitate toward.

I've never actually eaten there, so I can't account for the food, but it looks to be solid, British-inspired pub grub.

Beyond the beer, there's an excellent selection of whiskey.

The service can be a little dicey, especially when it's at its peak business. Not unfriendly, just inattentive. Prices are high, but not exceptionally so for New York.

Great place, Vibe is relaxed but still classy, service is decent, although the bartenders are much friendlier then the waitresses, very good selection.
