The standard by which all other restaurants are judged with respect to Craft beer selection. They have lots of taps and bottles. They constantly rotate out new selections for their Beer Knurds (the people who try different beers every time and when they get to 100 they get a plate on the wall).

As a craft beer advocate, I am glad that this location exists to help expose those new to the craft beer world about the variety of options.

The menu is limited to bar foods plus some German influenced items (pretzels and sausages). I would prefer to have more of a 50/50 bar/restaurant mix. This place is definitely a bar first and restaurant second. The servers are typically beautiful women with moderate to high beer knowledge in short skirts.

I really like "The Saucer", especially for a chain, but this place has one problem... It is only one of a few bars in the UNCC University area, which makes for one busy establishment. If you can catch it at the right time, though, Flying Saucer is quite an good beer bar. I love the Bratzel and the always have a very good selection in comparison to the rest of the area. Fair prices on draught beer, but stay away from bottles. That's my general rule of thumb, anyway.

The girls that serve the brew are more often than not quite gorgeous and most of the time know the taps and bottles well.

Came here for my first time not too long ago for the Down South Beer Tasting that was put on while aasher was in town visiting me for the day. The location was a little hard to find if you were coming off the wrong street. The entrance I took was an entrance for a golf course and then turned right to go down toward the Saucer. Once in sight it was easy to find. Plenty of parking to go around, so no worries there. Upon walking into the establishment the bar is on your right with the wall lined with tap handles. Didn't get a great look at them as we were bringing our own bottles but there appeared to be a pretty decent selection going on here. There was also plenty of seating to go around in the main room as you walked in with a combo of boothes and tables. There was also a back-room with more table seating and bench seating that lined the whole outside wall of the room with tables pulled up to it. We were in the back-room due to the outside bottles obviously. The first server we had was very attentive and took very good care of us while we were there as far as bringing out food and bring extra pitchers of water. After the changeover to a new server, service wasn't nearly as good, but that is understandable based on the circumstances. Didn't get to eat any food while here, but everything everyone else got looked and smelled delicious. Glad I finally got the opportunity to stop in here and will be doing so again in the future without a doubt.
