Passed this place while walking from Crank Arm back to my hotel. Empty late on a Wednesday night, folks must have 8 oíclock classes. Huge long bar, cavernous interior, nice covered patio. Beer list was massive with a few decent surprises, though overall more about the quantity. Decent stop if youíre in the city center.

Funky atmosphere is worth a visit alone. Really liked the decor and bar area. We werenít impressed by the food at all but didnít go there to eat anyway. Good tap selection. Worth another shot.

This is my favorite place in the entire Triangle area for beer. The waitstaff is friendly and very knowledgeable about beer. Management goes above and beyond, and they have a lot of cool special beer related events. I have been going here for nearly 9 years and there have been other places that have opened up all over the city, still this is the place that all other beer bars should be measured by.

Big place with a huge tap and bottle list in the downtown area of Raleigh. Busy on a recent Spring evening, even on the outdoor patio, but did not have to wait for a table. Thinned out as the night rolled on. Crowd was mostly young (there is a college right across the street) but not rowdy. Food menu was limited but satisfying. Good service; attentive but not obtrusive. Liked the vibe; tvís and cell phones were in limited use, so conversations dominated. Would definitely return if in the area again.

I liked the Flying Saucer. Itís a large place but somehow felt comfortable and homely and it has a nice patio with chunky wooden tables and benches. The very long and impressive beer list is matched by a long, long bar, backed with shiny copper pennies. The walls and ceiling are covered in saucers each bearing a name, a number, a date and a quote. The different coloured edgings (gold, silver, bronze and red) denote how many beers the owner of the saucer has drunk, in multiples of 200. And thatís a lot of beer, as there are no half pours here.

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.
