    One of my favorite hideaways in Austin. It's a nice break from the chaos of other venues. Cozy, comforting atmosphere with a tremendous selection of beers on tap. Nice outdoor beer garden space, too!

    A dizzying array of taps. A more quiet and conversational scene than the usual raucous Austin downtown suspects.

    With well over 100 beers on tap, Ginger Man can be overwhelming. Ask the knowledgable staff or when in doubt, pick an Austin brew.
