A great bar chain and the food was excellent. I had the German platter with two different sausages, slaw, and potatoe salad. probably the best I have had and I have been to Germany. Amazing beer selection,My freinds had the philly cheesesteak and said it was good, not the best but above avergae for a bar. bartenders were not nearly as trained as the one in raleigh. I was listening to one of the surfer dude bartenders and every time someone asked him what the beer was like he said "it's a strong ale" I heard him say that to customers 4 different times for different beers. it was hilarious. He was effiencent though.

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.
