    The grandaddy of craft beer places in Houston. Still vital, though!

    The Ginger Man knows that the key to success is to do one thing and do it well. The thing they do well is beer. The menu features a huge selection of beer from around the world and many local crafts

    Lots of beers to choose from.

    Awesome beer selection. By far one of the best places to go have a drink after work.

  • David P.

    Doesn't matter if you're looking for a local IPA on nitro or a national favorite, or a Belgian Tripel, they have it! They just have the best beer selection... And a super cosy atmosphere

    Their dartboard is too high and they have shitty darts.

    One of the coolest little pubs in Houston. Grew up going here. Always a friendly crowd, great ambiance, excellent tunes on the jukebox, and more beer choices than you could dream of... A+++

    Don't bother waiting for a waiter/ waitress. Go to bar and get yourself a drink. Beer selection is good.

  • Paul S.

    Beer, beer, and more beer. And some bourbon.

    Service is slow on front patio. Either go to the bar and order or get a seat inside. One of the best international beer lists in Houston though.

    Joshua Jagnanan · January 20, 2013
  • Glaydon D.

    The largest beer menu I had seen!!! Very nice service. There is no food. If you were hungry, eat before get there!

    This is a great beer bar if you're looking for a solid selection of craft beer. If you want food and beer, not so much.

    Best tavern-style pub around. Highly recommended for beer snobs world round.

    A snake bite is Cider and Lager mixed 50/50. Guinness and Cider is much nicer and is called a Black and Tan in the UK, for a Black Velvet sub the cider with champagne

    If you're wheat/gluten free like me you can always order a cider here at the Ginger Man. Great little pub!
