Made my first visit to the Kansas City version last week for Perennial night during their Stout week. The bartender was very well versed in all that was available. The event featured BA Abraxas and was handled very well. The food was decent and prices were very reasonable. The selection was well above average and they do try and feature Missouri beers. The beer menu is somewhat difficult to navigate. Just wish the establishment was closer to my home.

I stopped here for a bite to eat and a few beers after work while traveling for business. They definitely have a large craft selection which includes a lot of local or Kansas beers. Its nice when traveling to see a focus on local beers. They definitely had a good variety from across the Country as well as some beers from across the pond. The bar tenders were relatively busy but it was a Saturday night right after dinner. They had good knowledge and would let me sample what I was interested in. The carried a few pumpkin beers since it was September and they appeared to have a large bottle section which I didn't even get into.

They have daily specials which include new beers tapped weekly and sometimes daily. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. I am interested to check it out next time I am in town. Cheers!

There is nothing wrong with this place. It is just not my style. They have a lot of taps. It is much more Belgian and German focused than most chains. The menu is horrible because the draft and bottle list are intermingled. Crazy confusing to read and sort through. The staff surprisingly knew their beer very well. (I say surprising because it looked like they hired some bimbos to pour beer, but all of the servers had great knowledge of their list). I hear their events are cool. This place feels like a factory, but it’s the best sort of downtown beer factory that I’ve been to. If you want to see the real beer scene of KC, head down to Westport. There's a lot of small children and families here. Not my thing.

Flying Saucer is pretty much a sure thing no matter the location. Stopped in this one for a nightcap after a Royals game as it was three blocks from our hotel. Good sized place with a bunch of tables in the front. we grabbed two spots at the long straight bar at the back. Good selection of local and regional favorites both on draft and in bottle.

There was a New Belgium event that night so we concentrated on the Lips of Faith offerings that we can not get at home. Vickie snagged the last glass to be given away. Great service from the bartender.

One day we will be at a Flying Saucer at mealtime to render a verdict on the food but not this time. Always a worthwhile stop.
