I'm more a regular at the Addison saucer than Ft. Worth only because of distance. This one has by far a better vibe and atmosphere than the sports bar feel Addison is in. The wait staff seems a bit more fun (in what they wear and how they act) and into their jobs, not something I get in Addison. The building is way cooler too. The brews are slightly different, and what you'd expect with the area's staple draught house[s], having a stock of Rahr's every time I've been (though I wouldn't rush here for that.) I love hitting up this place when I'm on this end of town. Gets busy quick and on the few times I've been here seems to be pretty similar to the counterparts on when they get busy, get here early afternoon to avoid the crowds is my advice.

Nicely spotted in downtown Fort Worth, Flying Saucer gave me the opportunity to get a buzz before I headed off to the Stockyard. There's a very large patio which stretches out onto the street, and also a large interior with a long bar. In some ways, it felt like a biergarten. Sticking to the theme is a long tap list with certain days for discounts and events ($3 Texas Pints, Meet the Brewer). A well varied taplist from the somewhat common to the more unusual kegs, with beers like Kulmbacher Eisbock, Founders Rubaeus, Moonlight Desire, Avery Persik, Ninkasi Gound Control, Erdinger Pikantus, Watermelon Dorado. While downtown Fort Worth doesn't have much going on, the Flying Saucer does.

A bit of a mixed bag of an experience but overall good. Though there were plenty of good options, 2 of the 4 beers I ordered while there were out but the beer menu and website had not been updated.Food was on point as expected. The service left something to be desired as our server didn't seem to have any sense of urgency and disappeared for roughly 15 minutes when we were ready for our check. I'll definitely visit agin though I'll likely choose to sit at the bar and call to confirm if specific beers are available as listed on the website.

Bar food. But no bad. I'm here for the beer and they never let me down.

Best of the Saucer's that I have been to by a good margin.
