This Rice Village mainstay has been providing a haven for beer lovers since Ronald Reagan's second term. Boasting what the bar claims is "America's largest selection of import draughts," the Gingerman surely has a brew to suit you amongst the 68 on draft and additional 140-150 bottled suds. With a charming cozy interior of small wood tables, welcoming front patio or sizable back beer garden, the G-man suits either a calm post-work/Sunday-night beer or crowded weekend hang (and it does get crowded). Besides Anvil and The Stag's Head, this is one of the few local bars that serves cask-conditioned ales. The excellent jukebox is packed with a hefty selection of newer indie albums and local legends like Little Joe Washington, Thirteenth Floor Elevators and Archie Bell & The Drells.
