“Staff completely overwhelmed by the large crowd”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Pretty cool that they had ALL of those beers on tap. Of course, I pick two different ones and they're out of BOTH. Always had to go to the bar for the drinks; the wait staff were completely overwhelmed by the large crowd surrounding the Liberty Bowl parade that day.

“Huge bar and gigantic beer menu!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

If you like beer, this is the place to go. Forget about international breweries and enjoy some interesting microbrews from all over the world. Flying Saucer has one of the largest beer menus I've ever seen.

There are lots of long wooden tables to share with others, as well as high tops. The best places to sit are the couches and overstuffed chair groupings spread throughout the place.

We had a hummus plate, which was delicious.

Give this bar a try. It's a block from Beale Street and a bit less chaotic.

“Hundreds of Beers!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Nice little spot to grab a drink, but away from Beale if want a break from the intense action.

Nice couches to sit and grab a drink...take a minute to select from hundreds of beers.

Food selection wasn't the greatest. So we ended up leaving after a few drinks to find somewhere else.

Fun bar spot though!
