Short Stop in the "green"

Nice place to stop with your dog for a brake during shopping. Good beer selection, not my favorite place for real "dinner" but great for "just relaxing" with a snack

Amazing beer selection. You come for the huge draught beer selection but the food is great as well. German food or burgers but the salads are solid as well. Did I mention over 100 different beers!

We just had drinks here and the place was very cool. Serious beer establishment with a great energy. Casual and comfortable with an efficient wait staff.

If you're a connoisseur of fine food, this place probably won't titillate your taste buds, but if you have a penchant for porters, this place will definitely float your boat. If you're local, join the UFO club and get a plate on the wall, it will force you outside your comfort zone and you'll try all types of outrageous beers.... More

My husband is just starting to learn about craft beers and we were told about this place from a server at another restaurant- so naturally we had to check it out. Way cool! I'm not a beer drinker, the server was super helpful bringing me drinks to test out, hummingbird h2o... DELISH!! Food is bar food, but very tasty! Our... More

The food here is amazing, and the number of different beers that they have on tap is mind blowing. They have everything from ciders to dark stout beer, local, domestic, and foreign beers. The flying Saucer also has a beeknurd club with a UFo membership. The membership is $18, but you get a beerknurd T-shirt and several other benefits:After 50... More

You can truly enjoy beers from all over the world here and have some great eats, try the Saucer Brotzel, it's to die for! With specials every day , you can spend next to nothing on some days and make memories indoors and out.

Lots of beers on offer. Scantily clad waitresses who don't make eye contact with the women at the table, but flirt with the boys. Decent sausages. Good atmosphere. Surly guy on the door for IDs making sure everyone knows he's boss, and nitpicking. Had a couple of good nights here. If you're local, you get your own plate on the... More

Love to but the new glasses on Wednesday. Fun atmosphere just loud at times. Some of the girls really know their beer but others could use a little more help. It's nice to be able to sample the beer when you are not sure.

I'm not a beer drinker, but they have just about any kind of beer you could ever want. I had an ale that was pretty good and the grilled chicken sandwich was delicious. It was a bit crowded and loud, but I enjoyed the atmosphere and the company.
