If the vintage Guinness posters on the walls have you convinced you’re at just another pub, you’ll need to reconsider. This place is anything but generic, from the ridiculous number of beers on tap (we’re talking around 70), to the lounge area, which is nice enough for any after work relaxing you’re looking to do. We say stay for dinner, especially for the German sausage platter, which is excellent and comes with plenty of beer suggestions. The Ginger Man Club sandwich (which is another personal favorite) comes with a chicken breast, provolone, fresh avocado, tomato, and a chipotle aioli all layered on ciabatta. If you don’t have time to make a night of it, check out their beer-to-go menu (yes, really), which includes traditional German growlers and create-your-own six packs.
