I love this beer house. I have been displeased with the way it is being run on weekend nights, however. I was at The Gingerman Saturday night, 8/11, sitting outside at a table with friends at about 1:45 AM, when my waitress informs me last call will be at 2:00 AM. A minute later, a rude and pushy bouncer informs us it is last call NOW and that we have to get up from the table we occupied for 3 hours and move inside where there was no seating available. At 1:50 AM, he informed us that we had about 30 seconds to finish the drinks we had JUST purchased or he would be forced to take them and pour them out.\r
I don't appreciate being forced to chug an $8 beer meant to savor I purchased 10 minutes PRIOR to last call. Management should set last call at 1:45 AM if they are going to have thug bouncers bullying patrons before closing time.\r
The Gingerman offers an excellent selection of beer, however the quality of employees and their actions are a serious disappointment.
Pros: Good Beer
Cons: Crowded, Poor Service
