My favorite bar in Austin. Expect a crowd (unless you come in the afternoon), but once you get a table the service is usually very attentive. Servers come and go, so if yours isnít a beerologist just ask one of the bartenders. There are good deals most nights listed on the fire-sale blackboard. The food is good but, just like the beer, should be switched up every once in a while.

Great selection, but it can get quite busy at different times depending on the day. Thats not really a complaint though. Food is great, and the place is clean. Couches are a plus, even though there might be a few too many. The patio is the place for me, plenty of room (unless its friday happy hour). The UFO club is fun to help keep track of what I have tried, and help me keep on top of what is new. Check it out.

The Saucerís a very fun place to drink. Theyíve got pretty much everything available in town and almost always get the new beers right when they show up. Casks show up occasionally, which is nice, and every now and then theyíll Randall a beer. If youíre there, ask for Sam, one of the managers - heís a stand-up guy and knows his beer. Itís hard to choose between this and the Draughthouse for a favorite Austin beer joint.

The newest addition to the Flying Saucer chain, and has a "new" feel to it. I recognized a few staff members from their days at the San Antonio Saucer, and I was told that the GM from San Antonio is now in charge of Austin. They had a great selection - sure some of the stuff is available at a few places in Austin... but thatís the way the bar business works - itís not like they can get something that isnít available. It is a bit loud and pulls in a yuppie crowd, but who said a beer bar canít be for the young crowd too (since Iím a bit of a yuppie myself, donít mean I donít enjoy a good beer). My only complaint is about the food. Itís the same menu as all the Saucers, which is good until you have decided you are tired of all the Saucerís food!

A pretty wide selection of beers, however I wish they had more stuff on tap. Still a very enjoyable place to go to try a some new brews.

I am not normally a fan of pub chains - they seem to be an excuse to demand disocunts from brewers who cannot really afford to give them. However I was really impressed by the FS chain on our flying visit. Good food, loads of beers, paying attention to local producers, giving drinkers a warm place to sit. This one hit the spot.

Im a sucker for these places! This is my 4th FS and i am really impressed by this one. lots of great taps mostly texas and imports however, they have a few rare ones from time to time. they have Boulevard Love Child #2 in bottles and im kicking myself that i didnt get it! Very friendly, attractive and knowledgeable waitresses doesnt hurt either! A must stop in Austin if you ask me.

Not too much to say about this place, other than it is pretty much like all the other Flying Saucer locations I have been to. That is not a bad thing, since they have 80+ beers on tap plus a ton in bottles. Food is decent, but this place is all about the beer. This is located within five minutes of Black Star and Draught House, and only a little further from North by Northwest.
