On the way to Charleston, stayed over in Raleigh and had to stop here. Damn cool place with a ton of local beers. About 50 taps or so and plenty of sampler options. The bartenders and manager were awesome, had a great time and will definitely have to stop back through. Food is pretty damn good as well.
April 2007, the night before the World Beer Festival -- one word review: awesome! Superb beer list wtih a huge number of quality brews available on tap. The menu is limited, but we ate was good. The service was attentive, if she didn’t know much about beer. This is a MUST stop in Raleigh, just be prepared for a loud place.
Always have a good time here. Usually very busy and have to sit outside. Great beer selection, good food and service. Plus loyalty rewards program for trying all the different beers.

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 can’t 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. Can’t 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.
Let me say.. AWSOME PLACE.. my new favorite bar.. they have a beer club called UFO that i joined.. u get a tshirt and if u try all the beers u get a pla8ue on the wall.. VERY nice selection.. 81 on tap and over 200 in all.. the food is decent.. i tried the german platter.. cheese and sausage.. works well with the beer... ANDDDD VERY FINE WOMEN bringing the beer .. 17/20 awsome bar

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, I’m guessing this is pretty typical of Flying Saucers - and that’s a good thing.
