I've been here quite a bit and always have a great time. I really enjoy trivia nights on tuesday, one day i swear we'll win a game. Bands play on the back patio during the summer which is always fun. Upstairs has a limited bar, but it's still a nice area to relax in if downstairs is too packed. Waitresses have always been real helpful and nice. Went this past weekend and i loved the selection of seasonal beers they had. Was real happy to taste some beers that come out of Austin. Definitely will be back soon!

Located in downtown Fort Worth this is a great place to go if you are in town for a meeting or a convention. It is also just down the street from Bass Performance Hall if attending a concert.
The Flying Saucer has a great selection on tap, about 100 different beers both domestic and imports. Another 200 beers on hand in bottles. Food is average but you don't go here for the food.
There is a great patio to sit when the weather permits. During the summer it can be a little warm when the Texas summers are 100 degrees or more. But when you have a cold one who cares.

I discovered this little gem thanks to BeerFly. What can I say that hasn't been said before? I visited there over Independence Day weekend and both times was served by Homer, who remembered me by name and suggested beers based on what I'd already tried - great service. Ordered a garlic chicken pizza slice (cut into four smaller pieces) and it was hot, delicious and the garlic gave it some real zip. As for atmosphere met a guy there who could be the Cliff Clavin of the Flying Saucer - and we had a great discussion ranging all over the map, so much so that one of the servers noted that it was some of the most interesting bar talk she's ever overheard. And the servers. Wow. Hooters girls take a back seat to these beautiful and charming women. So you have great service, great food, great atmosphere in a historic and charming old building (with patio) and beautiful servers. Why aren't YOU there yet???

I was in town for a training seminar and was looking for a great beer bar. I found one. I was with sixteen other people and we took over the upstairs area.
The beertender was GREAT. She knew her beer and kept it coming.
Service was a little weird because we were upstairs and if we wanted a beer she didn't have she had to place a phone call and a "runner" brought it up. On the plus side the "runner" always brought up a some spares. :)
The food was good enough to keep 16 hungry people from going elsewhere... and some party-poopers were trying.
We had a great time, mingled with some locals and were grateful we took cabs. :)
I asked for a Rogue Dead Guy Ale and to my delight a sixer was produced.
The variety was outstanding as was the atmosphere. Would absolutely go back.

This place has good appetizers and a pretty large selection of craft brews on tap.
You can also order "around the world samplers" which allow you to try 6 different 4 oz samples from an area of the world. The "belgian sampler" is a personal favorite.
Atmosphere is way too busy evenings and weekends but the lounge area is a nice place to meet other people and relax.
On the downside it can get a little pricey if you want to try a few different styles. The 4 oz samples don't sound like much and they aren't. A good two tastes of each beer. These will get you wasted thought so keep that in mind, as I have discovered that trying many different styles of high abv beer in the same night can lead to disorientation and even fun.

I had the chance to stop in on a monday and the prices of pints was off the hook. $2.75 for most pints was a great suprise.
I was glad to see Ten Fidy on tap and went for that first, tried some others that I can't get on the west coast.
I enjoyed the short skirts on the waitresses, but like a true beer geek I spent most of my time talking to guys at the bar about hops and beer temp.
Definately one of the best selections in the area and a must stop if in the area. Though I was a little stilted when I saw folk(s) drinking MBC at the bar.
Three beers for me, two for a new-comer---$17.00

I usually go here between Thursday and Saturday nights. They have live music outside some nights so they charge a cover. It is usually difficult to find a seat, but it isn't overly packed. Can be a somewhat lengthy wait for beer depending on the night. Excellent selection of beers though. Huge menu to select from. They have something for everyone. I have never tried their food so I can't comment on that. Reasonably priced beers and on some nights they have some really good deals. Great place to hang out downtown.

I had to come down to FW for business a couple weeks ago and I knew this would be the first place I would go to as soon as I got to town. Really easy to find, big 2 story building, I enjoyed reading all the saucers on the walls. They have a LOT of bottled beer but not so much on tap as I was expecting. There are just too many to name so im not even going to try. I had a Young's Double Chocolate, Dogfish Head Pumpkin, and my wife has some cider, I can't remember. I also ate a slice of pizza which was okay but nothing special. The waitstaff wasn't very great. I sat there with an empty glass for 10 minutes or so.

Really nice place. Friday night so there was a $2 cover which is pretty nominal. There was a live band outside but we chose to sit inside since it was a little muggy outside and we were already hot. The saucers are definately interesting expecially reading the names. Beer selection is obviously outstanding with nice order to the menu makes it easy to find what you are looking for. My beer was $4.50 which kinda looked like the average. Prices are pretty typical for what you are getting. My wife and I split a chicken sandwich that was $8. It was delicious. Service was not perfect but not bad either. We will for sure go back soon.

Correcting previous post. Review was written about the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Fort Worth, TX.
I've been to Flying Saucer (Fort Worth, TX) three times. It was very easy to find and the first time i was able to park on the street right in front of the place. I have also used the parking garage.
It's pretty much a single large and very open room with high ceilings. There are plenty of tables. I prefer to sit at the bar in front of all of those wonderful taps. The first night i went they were preoccupied with hosting a trivia night, but the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. When i asked for a barleywine my server hooked me up with Sisyphus, which is made by Real Ale Brewing in TX and was wonderful draft.
I can't speak to the quality of the food but i observed others enjoying theirs. The one thing that they did there that i had not seen before was a sort of beer kiosk that you could use to browse for beer selections and print out order chits. Looked like an interesting way to keep tabs on what you've had. They also had a Brewery Night - buy the beer keep the glass gig that was cool. I snagged a FS pint glass for the collection.
