The Flying Saucer is a conveniently located beer bar in downtown Ft. Worth. I visited at the same time the Arts Festival was going on, so it was quite crowded the first Friday night I visited. I had Avery's Maharajah on gravity pour cask, it was in excellent shape, very fresh and tasty. Also tried the Live Oak Hefeweizen, which is the best Hefe I have had.

The next day I came back for lunch, at 11:30, and it wasnt nearly as crowded, so I was able to sit at the bar. The bartenders were knowledgeable about the beers, and I ended up going with a flight of 5 beers on tap. A very nice idea, as it lets you try many different beers.

The only negative thing was that the beer engine was not hooked up to anything. But I really shouldnt complain too much because they had Maharajah on gravity pour. They don't have as esoteric beer lists as some bars, but they have a very solid offering nonetheless.

If you are in Ft. Worth I highly recommend going to the Flying Saucer!

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.
