I really enjoy coming here with my friends. Gingerman is a pretty relaxed bar with an insane amount of beer on tap!

The Gingerman is awesome...there's at least 70 different beers on tap, lots of seating inside as well as an outside courtyard, as well as darts and a jukebox.
It gets pretty crowded on the weekends though...you have to get there early to get seating.

We could hang out at this drafthouse for hours playing darts and sipping our favorite pint! I just love the atmosphere and how good it is for people watching. Cheers!

I've never been to the old location so can;t compare but loved the Gingerman. Great selection of beer, very comfortable setting and good waitstaff.
Was not crowded this past Sat and we had the back room to ourselves for most the early evening. Enjoyed trying several new (to me) beers and the ecclectic music on the juke box. Looking forward to trying out the outdoor patio when it dries up a bit (rain!). Will be back for sure!

Pros: New location, beers, just a great American pub

.

This is by far my favorite pub in town. No pretenses. Its refreshing to not have to deal with servers. With serves I always feel cheap when they walk around and I don't order anything new and have only had about 2 sips from my beer. The bartenders can be hit-or-miss on friendliness. On my 21st birthday, amazing and friendly staff super willing to tell their favorites and let me try them. On my friend's 21st birthday, the bartender was obviously annoyed when we asked for recommendations. The boy had never had never gone past Bud lite before though, so even I was a bit impatient. The beer is what makes this place. I'm happy with a Bass, but I love trying new things and at 4.50 a pint, mmmm. Imports aren't always the best buys here either. They have lots of hidden secrets behind their bar. I can't complain about anything, mostly because it doesn't falsely advertise anything. In fact, does it actively advertise anything or to anyone at all? And on a strange note: I love the huge Bavarian flag hanging at the back.

Pros: Refreshing unpretentious bar with great selection

Cons: The glasses don't come free with the drinks of their Monday "Keep the Glass" promotion

.

The drinks and indoor bar are acceptable at The Gingerman. What makes this bar stand out is the fabulous outdoor patio. It is a lot of fun to sit outside in the fresh air on one of their benches and relax while having a drink. If you are looking for a nice-enough bar, the indoor area will also do. The prices are average here and the service is decent.

I have been to Gingerman quite a few times. It never gets old, the beer selction is the best in Austin and the Atmoshere is cool, very Austin,a good place to sample some beer and talk during the day. At night it's a great place to start off the night off... The crowd and staff love beer and you can easily talk about different beers for hours with anyone. Stop by and have a few.... Cheers!!!!

Gingerman is a great place to go for just having a beer, for happy hour, or hanging out and chatting with friends. The bar has a very nice 'feel' to it and it's refreshing that they have only one tiny TV in the entire place, so people can focus on talking, rather than watching TV like in a stupid sports bar. The beer selection is excellent and all beers always taste the way they are supposed to taste - not at some other larger bars (such as Sherlocks, Little Woodrow's etc.) where none of the beers they have on tap taste right.
There is one review here where a person complains about 'bad service'. You walk up to the bar and order your beer and the people behind the counter are friendly and knowledgeable, what else would you want? A waitress bringing your beer to your table? Give me a break!

A long time ago this used to be one of our favorite places in Austin, however, the service has steadily slipped over the years and the place has become more and more elitist. On our last visit, service was so bad that we decided we are never going there again. There are other places with MUCH better customer service that are more deserving of our money.
*UPDATED to address suelpen: To spell it out for you, YES, bad service = rude and/or unfriendly staff who act like they are doing YOU a favor to serve you a drink. I shouldn't be made to feel like I am imposing on waitstaff/bartenders when I am out trying to enjoy my leisure time and spending my hard-earned dollars! I shouldn't leave a place feeling WORSE than when I walked in! People, open your eyes and pay attention to how bartenders and waitstaff treat you in this town and don't spend money at establishments that don't value their customers!!!!

Cons: poor service

Great place for beer and conversation. They have a really nice patio with large shade trees. The beer selection is quite amazing. Don't go there too hungry or you might get buzzed real quick, their menu isn't the best, but who needs a great food menu when you have beer?

If you are into the best selection of beer in town then the Gingerman is the place for you. Whether you have a taste for a complex belgian or a refreshing german wheat or even a cutting edge American microbrew, you will not be disappointed. Sit inside or out. Bring a bunch of friends or hang alone. Play darts. Lounge on their couches. One thing is certain - great beer and no worries. Maybe thats 2 things but you get the point. Peace out.

Pros: All good. Good product and good surroundings.

Cons: None.

This is always the first place we take our out of town guests. They have a phenomenal selection of beers and will let you taste them before you decide. My favourite spot in Austin is the shady beer garden at the Gingerman. Emapanadas are good, but the beer companion plate (cheese & salami etc) is always disappointing. But I can live with that!

Gingerman never fails in the selection department, and the laid-back crowd and general atmosphere can hardly be beat. Although if you're into drinking a less obscure selection of beers, your money will certainly go farther any day of the week at any number of places around town that have a more than adequate selection. Also watch those credit card transactions... I have had more than one on my statement with a tip much larger than I actually wrote in.

I was in Austin about and month ago and decided to go bar hopping in the middle of the day on a Saturday. Well we started at Ginger Man and I was blown away!!!!!! I love to try new beers and they had a few to try( 89 on tap!!!), My brother and I quized the bar tender from what to beers tasted like, alcohol content to the histories of the beers and she was able to anwser everything. The atmoshere is great!!! It fells like a pub, wooden decour and dark, they have a outside deck too. So the next time you feel like relaxing and having a good beer check out this place, Cheers!!!!!!

I was in Austin recently for a conference. Despite bar hopping many different venues, it wasn't until after the conference was over that a local friend took me to Gingerman where I was excited to see so many taps along the wall, lined up so close to each other. A fine selection of American and European beers. Going with half pints allowed me to taste many interesting beers which I had not tried before. Next time I'm in Austin, I'm going to the Gingerman first!

Went to the Gingerman for a pint of Maredsous 8 (can't believe they have it on tap - hoo yah!), ended up talking to the pretty and friendly bartender about (what else) beer for a while - stayed for a truly excellent Turkey sandwich (curry mayo on foccaccia bread - mmmmm). A very genuine place - nice to see in this town the way things are going lately.

When the weather is nice, I like to meet friends and sit outside in the back patio. The empanadas are pretty good and the tap selectioin is impressive. This is also a good place to grab drinks before before going out.
