In the shadows of downtown, the Saucer has a great street view, and the obligatory plates everywhere. Nice combination of seating options, overstuffed chairs and couches along one wall, straight wood dining tables in the open, slightly secluded booths toward the back, seating at the bar and another bar like row behind that. I didn’t make it upstairs.
Tap board as long as Texas with what has to be close to 90 taps (menu lists 76, but my math shows more, and the Freshly arrived aren’t listed yet). Freshly tapped Live Oak Hefe was an easy choice. Served with lemon (I forgot to ask them not to). Friday afternoon crowd is a mix of office drones, leisure hip, and older moms. Wifi available with a code. Beer goddesses, well, at least mine, were in top form. Knowledgeable about the beers, suggested a sample when I asked about the Frosty Frog, and generally took care of me (even directed me to the one seat that I could plug in my laptop- single tall two top by the dart board).
A great place to spend time and money. If you’re hitting Minute Maid park, this is the before/after spot. You have to hit Spec’s down the road too.
