My first experience with the Saucer was in downtown Memphis. I was blown away. I live in the Raleigh area, so I was happy when the Saucer opened up here. You canít beat the selection. The wait staff is pleasant on the eyes and even though the food selection is limited, it is very good.

Just off the centre, unpromising from the outside and a bit of a barn inside but a superb range of beers - US and imported - and simple long bar makes this a great place to while away half a day. Nice staff too.

A ridiculous amount of beers on tap. I have been going to this location since 2004, and they keep changing up the lines and offering new and exciting beers. Their keep the glass night is fun and sometimes are very unique. Canít beat their 3 dollar pint night on monday and sunday is NC beers are 3 as well as brunch for beer knurds is free! Well worth the drive if you are even remotely close by.

Got there fairly early on Friday before the WBF, and glad we did - It got crowded pretty quick. Nevertheless, we thought the service was pretty good - our waitress was attentive and kept our glasses full. Selection was good, I was able to find a nice mix of new stuff and old favorites. Overall, Iím guessing this is pretty typical of Flying Saucers - and thatís a good thing.

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.

Great place to go hang out and drink craft beers while enjoying excellent scenery (inside, not out.). POSITIVES: The beer list is huge with a mix of draft and bottles, on the order of a 100+ beers. The menuís organized by style, with new releases and seasonals posted on a big chalk board over the bar, making it easy to find what you want. They hit the common micros, as well as new and hard to find brews. The pretzels with cheese dip are perfection. Whoever came up with the idea of populating the wait staff with college girls and making them wear plaid skirts with knee-highs is brilliant. NEGATIVES: Perhaps because the beer list is so huge, they arenít able to stock everything on the menu, so Iíve occasionally ordered 3 or 4 beers before finding one they had in that day. The waitresses are attractive, attentive, and quite friendly...not normally beer experts. Asking for suggestions doesnít usually work out very well.
