I have loved this place since I turned 21 and was able to get good beer on my own. They have LOTS of beer and the staff knows all about them, so if you have a style you prefer, ask what they have, because while the menu has most, sometimes the special "we just got one keg" doesn't get listed.
The atmosphere is great as the building is the oldest brick building in Ft. Worth and is in Sundance Square which is the nightlife home to Ft. Worth. The crowd is usually a good mix of business type people and this is due to the plethora of other places around that cater to the college aged, clubbing mindset. This is a place to come enjoy good beer with good people, not get "crunk" at a party.
If you happen to be in Tarrant County (Ft. Worth area) and want to go someplace comfortable, have a good beer and enjoy the others that are there as well, then the Saucer is for you. Honestly, the place feels like what would happen if BA was to create and open a beerpub.

This is my favorite bar in the world. I'm not that well traveled but it would be hard to beat this place. Great location in Sundance Square, awesome real historic, not built to look old like the other in FW/D, and a beer selection with knowledge that just wont quit. The only downside is my bartender Curtis got promoted a few years ago, but he deserved it. No bad at all. Great beer, good pub grub, and if you can make a private tasting go. The general manager makes a mean stout infused beef stew.

Addison vs. Fort Worth? I can't believe Addison ranks higher than Fort Worth? Granted, I've been to each place only once but I travel extensively and seek out great beer everywhere I go. The Fort Worth Flying Saucer is *VERY* high on my list. I office in Portland, OR. With all the great beer places in Portland, if the FW FS was here, many of the old town favorites would be hurting.

Texans always say things are bigger and better in Texas. When they are talking about the Fort Worth Flying Saucer you can believe them.. Considering the paucity of Texas craft brew watering holes the Fort Worth Flying Saucer must be considered a Heavenly Oasis.

Stopped by this place on saturday night while with my wife. While she isn't much of a beer fan, she has enjoyed herself in both Flying Saucer locations in the area. Overall this place is a little bit better looking than the addison one. I really dig the upstairs patio. While the stock of beer seems to be a hare different than addison, I wasn't suprised to see a lot of Rahr & sons beers. I also ate here too and the food wasn't half bad for bar food. I wouldn't make this a true dinner stop. But I wouldn't not eat here agian either. Once agian, the saucer remains my favorite beer spot. Now I can just hit up the one in fort worth if I'm ever on this side of town.

I was in town for a training seminar and was looking for a great beer bar. I found one. I was with sixteen other people and we took over the upstairs area.

The beertender was GREAT. She knew her beer and kept it coming.

Service was a little weird because we were upstairs and if we wanted a beer she didn't have she had to place a phone call and a "runner" brought it up. On the plus side the "runner" always brought up a some spares. :)

The food was good enough to keep 16 hungry people from going elsewhere... and some party-poopers were trying.

We had a great time, mingled with some locals and were grateful we took cabs. :)

I asked for a Rogue Dead Guy Ale and to my delight a sixer was produced.

The variety was outstanding as was the atmosphere. Would absolutely go back.
