This past week I was in Texas and had the opportunity to drive through Austin. I checked out the list of 125 Places to Drink Beer (see earlier post) and realized The Gingerman was on the list at number 110.
Of course, I keep looking at this list as a ranking … I know, I shouldn’t … but then I think — this place should not be number 110 … it should be higher! Then, I just laugh … because, it doesn’t really matter. This place is awesome!
Their beer selection had both my favorite Weizen Bock (Aventinus from Schneider-weisse) and an excellent range of Texas brews.
I tried a brew from the 512 brewery in Austin … surprise, their IPA! This beer was quite pleasant — definitely a West Coast variety IPA (in my opinion). Well balanced, but the hops really come through … I thoroughly enjoyed it and would drink another if possible …
Oh, they also have a beer garden … but it was a little too warm this day — maybe another trip!
This is place #18 off the list for me … only 7 more to go this year!
