My first visit to a Flying Saucer Draught Emporium. A touch 'over-sportsy' for my tastes, but 'what the heck'.
(It's more about disc golf than UFO's. Flying 'Saucers', get it?)

A nice enough place. They have a really good tap selection. They have approximately 50 - 60 beers on-tap. A rotating cask selection. Another probably 200 beers in bottles.

They offer four different geographically-oriented flights. Also a hops flight or a malts flight, in case you want to bone-up on some knowledge. And, a Build Your Own flight, where you pick 5 different beers from the tap wall that you'd like to try.

The beer selection is pretty all-encompassing and most all beer producing regions are represented. Naturally, they have a good offering of Texas-made beers. The menu is broken down into styles of beers, for your ordering convinience.

We were there at around 11:00am, on a Tuesday, and set at the bar for lunch. The place was rather relaxed and almost empty when we came in. The bartender had a trainee, which worked out very well, as they devoted a lot of time to us, and we managed to help the new girl out with a bit of beer knowledge. As the lunch crowd packed in, our bartender maintained a very good level of service.

The food was better than expected, even if I think that they might be just a touch too proud of it. That's alright though. I go to places like this for the beer. You should too! (At least once.)
