Flying Saucer is a nice complement to the Gulu Gulu Cafe next door, with a really nice selection of drafts and canned beer. They offer 14 taps, all of which feature local beers. Everything on tap when I visited was from Maine or MA: Maine Brewing Mo, Maine Brewing Peeper, Peak Organic Pale Ale, Cisco Island Reserve Double IPA, Slumbrew IPA, Smuttynose IPA, Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet, Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer, Bantam Cider, Slumbrew Flower Envy, Allagash White, Allagash Black, Slumbrew Trekker Tripel, Mystic Day of Doom. Prices were reasonable, with most beers priced at $5 or $5.50 (the exceptions: Mo & Peeper, priced at $6.50 for a full pour, but that's still a great price compared to what I'm used to in Boston, where it's nearly impossible to find even a 12 oz. pour of Mo or Peeper for less than $7).
Like the beer, the pizzas all feature local ingredients, and they serve HUGE slices (1/4 of a large pizza) priced at around $5. I'm a bit of a pizza snob, so I can't say that Flying Saucer impressed me as much as my favorite Boston places (Picco, Area Four, Regina's, Emma's), but it was still very good. Definitely a very solid pizza option.
In addition to the great tap selection, they also have a wide range of beers in cans (no bottles). Can selection included: Greenhead IPA, Newburyport Pale Ale, Newburyport Belgian White, Brooklyn Lager, Sierra Nevada, Sixpoint Resin, Sixpoint Apollo, Oskar Blues Little Yella Pils, Wachusetts Blueberry, and a couple of others.

Flying Saucer is a pizza place but an offshoot of the Gulu Gulu Cafe which sits next door. The owner of Gulu Gulu owns Flying Saucer. This place serves unique pizza dishes as well as a few taps and bottles. The pizza here is terrific but you can wait a while at times for it to be ready so enjoy a drink or two.
The beer selection is pretty good, not as good as Gulu Gulu but not bad. It's usually run of the mill craft selections: Allagash, Maine Beer Co., Cambridge Brewing, etc. A lot of local breweries here. They have about 15 or so taps with a variety of styles and tastes as well as a cooler for additional cans and bottles. When Gulu Gulu is too crowded, this is a second resort for me. There's a really good, laid back vibe to the place and the people are always friendly.
