They keep around 80 brews on tap everyday, and stock 130-150 diff. bottles. The layout includes an outdoor Euro-Garden and a very spacious, high ceiling, bar inside... with ample setting. The ladies wear a catholic school outfit (plaid skirt& stockings) and ,for the most part, know their beer (or atleast how to pronounce it). The food is very good (moderatly priced ~$9) and goes great w/ a vareity of styles. The German Sampler is perfect, minus the price. This place will be kicking once we (SC) drops this ABV limit. On tap: many Rouges, a couple of Unibroues, all the locals, a few good Belgiums, and there a couple of damn good bottles. Plus they do try to use proper glassware and there a like 5 large tv’s.
Doesn’t look like much from the outside but once inside it is very much a Flying Saucer. Lots of good beers on tap. I really wasn’t on a unicorn hunt so I don’t know about those but it took less than three seconds to find a beer that I wanted to try. Some parking onsite but it fills up quickly. Other than that there is paid parking close by.
Tons of beer on tap and a lot of them local, which is always nice. However, it was too dark and the beer menu was printed in such a tiny font that it was difficult to read. Food was good and most prices were reasonable. Nice place.
If you like a large selection and an overpriced menu than this is place for you. Don’t get me wrong, I love college girls in microskirts serving beers, but the gimmicky atmosphere and tiny servings at large costs make this not the place to go if you really want to enjoy a couple beers.

Great service and even better beer selection. Great place to relax.
On par with other larger Flying Saucers. Big patio for the smokers, reasonable parking - drive on the sidestreets for street parking. Flying Saucer food is OK, the palate cleanser plate is great, esp the cheeses. Service was not as great as other places. Friendly crowd, same old pint night and trivia. One thing that makes this a good destination is that there are at least two other great beer bars with huge selections in staggering distance.
