TURDFERGUSON  (152) Carrboro, North Carolina | August 15, 2011
Been here a few times after WBF and for special events. Big selection, which is nice, but only a few that stand out for this beer knurd. Waitresses are required to wear sexy little mini skirts which is nice when you are drunk and seems more sexist when youíre sober. Very bustling and busy which is a little off-putting for me, but I understand. Lot of rabbits hopping around Raleigh making babies. Cheese fries are also delish when drunk.

Sat at a picnic table outside, with a shitty view. The crowd was college kids and some older apparent beer geeks. Great draft and bottle beer selection. The food was mediocre, and the service was rather slow. Very crowded. Worth a trip to see their bee menu.

This is a great Saucer location - the service was some of the best Iíve received at any of their locations, lots of local Raleigh brews as well as stuff from all over.

Great place, great beer, great food, and, at the risk of sounding horribly sexist, lovely waitresses in short plaid skirts. Service only suffered a bit during the most busy times, and the waitstaff we spoke to knew the beer menu pretty well. I want to dig it up and put it in my backyard.

Though I was rather drunk when I arrived, several things stood out. Good beer list, good food and HOT waitresses. Was able to get Duck-Rabbit Paulís Day Off, and a tasty sandwich served by a gorgeous brunette in knee high socks and a short plaid miniskirt. Yes it was rather busy between WBF sessions but we got taken care of rather nicely. Iíll definitely go back next time Iím in town!

Large place, lots of buzz and people. Huge selection of good local and international brews. Ok service but not the place I want to hang out every day.

This place is all about the beer, and thatís the way it should be. It gets REALLY loud in there, and can be hard to find a seat some times. But the beer selection is rather amazing for a bar, and the staff are great. Definitely should ask about being a member of the UFO club - you get to keep track of all the beers youíve had at this place, and if you try 200 different ones, you get your name on a plate that goes on the wall and $100 towards an unveiling party. Food is OK, and there isnít much of a selection of it. Not a place I would go for a dinner, but great for a happy hour.

Big, big selection. Lots of local beers and stuff from all over the States. A flight of five beers will run you between $8 and $10. Also, the flights are predetermined, but the bartender had no problem subbing one out for me. The service was really good considering how busy they were. It looks like they have an efficient system going on behind the bar. Not only a must hit for visitors, but one that I would hit again and again if I was a local.

I love going down to visit friends in Raleigh if for no other reason than getting to visit the Saucer. A great selection of beer and a pretty knowledgable staff. Food wise all I had was the pretzel, but it was pretty damn good. We sat outside, but it is smoky as hell inside. Oh, and the uniforms for staff are a plus.

One of several chains in and around the south, this particular establishment is located a few blocks west of the downtown area - and a short walk from Moore Square, home of the World Beer Festival that brought me to town. If you can get past the large patio area that overlooks the so-called warehouse district, you enter into a very large room with high ceilings; there is a long worn looking bar to the right and above, and all around you can see the eponymous saucers. "Eponymous?" Look it up. The beer list is outstanding and too big to describe in detail; letís just say if itís not here, you probably donít need it. There are represented a good array of regional brews, many of which I enjoyed the next day at WBF. In any case, I enjoyed: Founderís Dirty Bastard, Aviator Old Bulldog ESB, Sierra Nevada Torpedo (DIPA) and the always nice Racer 5. Extensive bottle list from all over - as I said, "outstanding." The food was tasty - at least my Bratwurst platter war sehr gut. I guess the Germans have much in common with the South: they both lost wars they started. (Yikes) But enough of politics. What I also liked were the very reasonable prices, at least for me being from the DC area. The majority of beers cost less than $5.00; Flying Saucer offers a multitude of weekly specials, for example $2.75 pints on Mondays; this is certainly enough get down here more often. Another interesting item is the very cute female waitstaff all tightly adorned in plaid miniskirts and garters. A very likable beer bar, one that was worth the trip to Raleigh alone.
