50th BeerFly review!

Swung by the Austin saucer after hearing they had Boulevard's Single-wide IPA on "Fire Sale" for $2.75 a pint--heck of a price!

Enjoyed the spring weather on the porch under a Paulaner umbrella, drank my IPA and ordered some brat nachos. Not quite as good as how they make them at the Raleigh saucer, IMO...something with the cheese or how they slice the bratwurst. Service was good, although for a Saturday afternoon it should be. Waitress was a bit ditzy and didn't really know her beer stuff like a good Beer Goddess should. Still, she was attentive and prompt (for the most part).

The selection is typical for a Flying Saucer, but you're slightly better off hitting up the Draughthouse or Ginger Man if you want a hefty tap selection while in Austin. Bottled list is extensive, but the expensive prices make me shy away from them. All in all, a serviceable FS location. Not the best, but it fulfills the qualities of the ever-growing, ever-popular beer chain.
