spaceycasey  (10) , Texas | January 12, 2009
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!

Really unimpressive. A bar for yuppies and college kids with popped collars to pretend that they have good taste because they drink overpriced pints of imported beer. Staff has little to no beer knowledge. Huge selection of beers, but nothing that canít be acquired elsewhere.

Although they have over 200 beers available - none of them are too spectacular. A bit loud and crowded on a Wednesday night but overall not horrible by any means. Turkey burger is yummy and the servers were nice. Since it has newly opened, I am sure that some of the kinks will get worked out over time. A bit yuppy but not a horrible place to go and hang out. Also, if you join their UFO Club and drink 150 of their beers - you get a frisbee.

Was told upon sitting down that they had 230 beers available between taps and bottles. Very good selection, but nothing too unique to the area. Food was actually surprisingly good and what we had was better than your typical bar grub. (Chicken Quesadillas and a Turkey Burger.) Basically this is a beer bar that doesnít doesnít have the feel of one. Waitresses were nice enough in their schoolgirl outfits, and somewhat knowledgable, but this isnít exactly where beer nerds go to hang out. More of a younger, yuppie crowd, with fairly loud, popular music. Prices seemed reasonable to slightly expensive. Has a very new, clean feel about it, more so than a comfortable old standby pub where youíll run into people you know. Good selection overall, but not as casual and relaxed of an atmosphere as I like.

For a draught emporium their staff has no beer knowledge.Though my waitress tried to be helpful and cute she had no idea what she was doing. After she said that they didnít have a beer I wanted on tap or in bottle, I had to point behind the counter for her to get it for me. Loud and yuppy, but has a decent selection. Iíll go Monday for $2.50 pint night.

Has only JUST o[pened, so will see what or if anything will change. As is, doesnít seem quite as spacious as others Iíve visited, which did make it faal rather cramped as my kids and I grabbed the very last available table. And why do places have to BLAST THE MUSIC SO FUCKING LOUD?!?!? I may be old, but Iím not fucking deaf yet. Might be if I go to more places like this. Pretty sure it didnít make the beer taste any better. Good selection as might be expected and that to equal most any place (in Texas).
