Yet another solid experience at a Flying Saucer, this time in Charlotte, NC. One of the smaller pubs in the chain, but located in an upscale strip mall and close to my hotel. The usual high ceilings and plates lining the walls and ceiling. Yes, the encased pennies decorating the wall of taps, too. Unbelievably, Avery's whallop-packing Imperial Octoberfest The Kaiser on tap (a first for me) for $6 and served in a pint glass! Anywhere else these days they'd put it in a crappy little snifter under the guise of it's high abv. Anyway, two of those and I had to order wings. First and thankfully last mistake of the evening. Undercooked wings are not a personal fav. My bad for not asking them to cook them to crispy mode. Lots of other octoberfests on tap and in bottle given the time of year. Great service by the dude behind the bar who was clearly a beer enthusiast too, and quite knowledgeable about the beer scene. Oh, and the chicks in their plaid school girl skirts added to the overall experience. Recommended and a must if you're in the area.

The food is really good, the service is good (I don't go there during crowded hours), and the beer selection is kind of a joke. about 100 taps and maybe 5 I'd like to order. You can tell they just buy a high quantity of less than par craft beer as most of their customers are new to the craft scene so they get away with it.
