Although the location is obscure, visiting the G-man is worth the effort. The building's architecture has been described in many reviews, so I will just omit that. The atmosphere felt more like a neighborhood coffee shop than a bar: very relaxing! Amazing selection, and it helps that the bartenders were very friendly, and more than willing to pour samples and answer questions. I got to try the cask conditioned St. Arnold's and it was excellent. Price is average.

Easily the best beer bar in Dallas, and definitely deserves fives across all marks. I strongly recommend checking it out!

Fantastic place. Great old pub feel. Wood, wood, wood, wood. Taps, copper, beer garden and an upstairs lounge style laid back area. It's a great place. I don't smoke cigars, but they have them. The ladies behind the bar were great. Christine and Whitney... Thanks.

This place is absolutely a craft beer lover's dream come true. The atmosphere is amazing, dark lighting, dark lacquered wood, warm and lively company downstairs and quieter more relaxed atmosphere upstairs with armchairs and couches. The outside area with the overlooking loft effectively gives you 4 different locations you can sit down and drink at and I find myself moving around from beer to beer. The staff is SO knowledgeable and friendly, they will gladly let you sample any beer you like or help you choose a brew based on what you like. The selection is amazing, I've always been extremely impressed with what they have to offer, both on tap and in bottles. The food I gave a medium rating simply because they only really serve a small numbers of snack / appetizer items, its just not a food kind of bar. HIGHLY recommend this one to anyone in the area!!!!
