I really love this place. This location is the only Flying Saucer that I've been to and I hope the others are this good. The entire staff is very beer knowledgeable and the selection is way above and beyond. They make it a point to tap some unusual brews and have a cask or firkin tapping about once a month. There is plenty of bar space and a small couch area too. It is a nice, big, open pub room but somehow when I get there with a group of friends it still has the feeling of a smaller pub.

The table servers are great. They have taken care of two parties for me, each with 50ish guests and they keep us happy, full, and with delicious beers in our hands for 4 hours with no mistakes or complaints. One guy asked a server what beer he was drinking because he couldn't remember what he ordered and she smelled it and told him. That's much better than the "um, let me go look at your bar tab" that most places would offer.

Everyone seems pleased with the brats and burgers, but I am here to tell you that the pretzels are to die for. The mustard is super spicy and oh so tasty.

Raglan Road is a distant second, Flying Saucer is the only place to hang on at the Power and Light District.
