My first visit to Memphis and first visit to any of the Flying Saucer bars.

As you walk in you are greeted by a German style Beer Garden feel. Picnic tables joined together in a L shaped space that has big garage style windows that must open up during the warmer months. A nice enclosed bar area with tons of decorations and the famous saucers you get for completing their UFO club.

I had a DFH 60 min IPA that was fresh the lines seemed to be clean and carbonation was fine.

Now, service, here is where they falter. I cant fault them for having very attractive women serving you beer. Hell, who can. But they need to be a little more knowledgeable in the product they are selling. In this case, good craft beer. Our server had no idea about beer and no idea about style. She was forgetful and not very engaging.

Selection is good, some very good Belgium's that are readily and a decent selection of domestic crafts.

Food was good for a bar. Had the buffalo chicken wrap. good flavor.

Visited on a Friday night in February for a couple of beers

Vibe is beer hall - with a bar, tables, and real darts. We sat at the bar.

Draft beer list is expansive and a mix of local, national, import. Regular beers and a few limited releases. A smaller bottle list of special stuff. If you can't find a beer to order, you've got a problem. bartenders are nice and helpful.

Didn't have any food.

Enjoyed a few Belgians here and was pleased that I could find them in the area. I didn't have time to look up and evaluate some local options in a hurry so I went with this chain location because I knew that they would have something decent. Food was rather average. Service was a bit neglectful. Beer was good though, but a little pricey for some options but not others.

Flying Saucer wasn’t on my list of stops in Memphis but I ended up parking right in front of it. And, hey, on Mondays its pint night all day, which means almost everything on-tap are $3 pints. So that’s cool!

We sat at the bar and our bartender was awesome. We told her we wanted a quick pint before moving on to Beale St. She asked if we needed help picking a beer and I said we just wanted something not sold in Nebraska. She offered some local beers but we had most. Ultimately we grabbed a pint each from Memphis Made, both beers were good, kind of malty per the style. But all was good. Great service. Good beer. Great price. We moved on…

We came back a few hours later for one last beer but didn’t sit at the bar. We sat in the open air area. The service was poor and the waitress was of little help. She knew nothing about beer and said they were out of everything we tried to order. None of the taps were cupped or pulled so I don’t know. She kind of killed my motivation to stay. We had one pint with her and left.

No food.

Overall, great location for somebody looking for good beer but I didn’t think finding local craft that hard… outside the area craft, yes, so this is your place.
