Nestled in Rice Village, The Ginger Man has been serving fine beer since 1985. This Texas chain offers over 50 beers on tap from around the world. This quaint Rice location, with its outdoor patio, is a Houston favorite. Settling in on the front patio with a half-pint of (admittedly non-local) Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, I chose to pair my libation with their Pesto Cheese sandwich – Gouda, Provolone and sharp cheddar cheeses, roasted red peppers and pesto on a French roll. While the sandwich was slightly undercooked, with the cheese not fully melted, the taste was pungent and flavorful. Other traditional pub-food items include bratwurst and a jumbo warm pretzel served with mustard. This is a great place to relax and take in the scenery on a Saturday afternoon.
