The flying saucer is my go to pub style restaurant in my down time, I love the food and I love the variety of beer they have to offer. They have memberships for customers who dare try 200? different brands of brew for 18 bucks, I might just join! Always a fun atmosphere, waitresses are very nice and usually know what to pick out if you can't decide. It is a bit pricey but hey they've got to make money some how off of the expensive brews so don't complain! I highly recommend

I would love to return to this Saucer one day. My wife, then girlfriend, did a summer internship in Memphis and lived not more than a mile from this spot.

Every other week I would make a drive down on Friday from St. Louis to visit and we both agreed each and every time that there was no better way to end the week than to sit outside at Saucer and have some good food and terrific beer.

She loved their salads and I would generally get some chicken tenders or something else not as good for you.

It was also a unique and unexpected chance to further my beer count in their saucer club. I have 50 of 200 down and unfortunately don't know when I will get to add more.

The service was always a little on the slow side and it could get buggy outside but overall it didn't matter so much, as it was nice to sit out there and relax with one of the hundreds of awesome beer offerings.

If you are less into craft beer, they have the regular stuff too and if you want wine they do have a limited selection.

If you're in the Memphis burbs and love great beer, I would join the saucer club and get it done there.

For those who don't know what the saucer club is, if you join (costs money but you get a shirt) you will get a card to swipe in their computer which then prints out a receipt for the beer you want. The server will take that receipt and ensure the database gets updated with the beers you had. You can then go online and track your progress towards 200, which entitles you to a plate on the wall with your name on it and a party with a nice credit towards beer. There are some milestone prizes too. When I hit #50 I got a free pint. There is a 3 beer limit per night (and no, going from late night one day to after midnight on another does not count).

We live in Tupelo MS and this is by far the best bar within a 100mile drive. After going to the FS downtown Memphis a few times, we got fed up with the bums, traffic and complete fools on Beale so we decided to try this one. I am so glad we did, I don't feel like I should worry about my car being stolen while I'm having a beer, and the crowd there is a lot more laid back too. The beer selection is slightly smaller then the one downtown but it's still pretty impressive. The outside area is nicely heated during wintertime and inside it's a smoke free area, which is not mandatory in Memphis from what I hear. Service has always been great, the place is clean, the music isn't overbearing and did I mention yet the beer selection is great?

The first time I walked in the place, my wife and I thought it wasn't a bad place for a quick pint. Parking is time consuming if you get there after the movies let out down the street. We enjoyed a few pints, She had a Sam Adams and it wasn't too bad. My choice for the evening was a Flying Dog Doggie style ale. It must be a popular Beer, it wasn't old like I've had in other Bars. Changed over to a pint of Boddington's, again a good pint. The place is mellower than the downtown Saucer.Not too many rowdies there, Which my lovely wife likes alot more than I do. If you're out in the burb's of Memphis have a pint.

I knew I was in the right place when I saw the sign above the tappers: Amateurs Ask For Frosted Mugs.

Selection here is extensive, with 60 draught beers on-tap and over 100 bottled beer offerings. Whatever you're looking for, they have it: Bocks & Dopplebocks; Dunkel; Marzen-Oktoberfest; Pale Lagers; Pilsner; Schwarzbier; Vienna Style; Amber Ales; Barleywine; Belgian & Trappist Ales; Brown Ales; English Bitters; Blonde Ales; Irish Ales; Kolsch; Lambics; Old Ales; IPAs; Porters & Stouts; Scottish Ales; Steam Beer; Strong Ales; Wheat Beer; Ciders and seasonal ales on rotation. What's not to love?

The Saucer also offers beer samplers from around the world, brew fusions, food and merchandise.

I stopped in at approximately 2 p.m. and the place was empty. Service was attentive at the bar. Any questions Tara (Carpe Brewski) couldn't answer, she referenced on their beer database and followed-up promptly.

I ordered the Hippie Burger, consisting of veggie patty with jalapeno-pesto mayo, cucumber, lettuce, tomato and avocado for $6.99. Potato salad on the side. In a word, Yum!

I talked to Mark, a regular, while I was enjoying my Bridgeport/Stone Ruination IPAs. Mark informed me that part of the Saucer's appeal is in joining the U.F.O. Club.

By coughing up 14 bucks, you become a BEERKNURD and receive a t-shirt and membership card. Swipe your card at the in-house kiosk and keep track of the beers you consume. Once you drink 200 diferent beers, you will be forever enshrined in the Ring of Honor. He pointed to the ceiling. All the gold plates represented BEERKNURDS who had completed the odyssey. It's a nice incentive to learn about great beer.

Atmosphere was attractive, and food & service above average.
Selection was impressive, although some of the bottled beers seemed a bit pricey.

The Saucer's mission is to "provide this community with the largest selection of quality, hand-crafted beers from around the world." After visiting their Cordova location, I have this to say: mission accomplished.

My only regret? That they don't have a location in Milwaukee.
