    Found it by chance after walking by the downtown... I was hungry and the bar food was great, but it's a must go place for the beer lovers!

    This saucer location is great. The staff is super friendly and the beer is good and cold. The food isn't bad either. I usually sit at the bar and get helped out within a minute Regulars are friendly

    The Friday lunch special rocks: bratwurst on a bun with just the right amount of mustard and awesome sauerkraut (speckled with rye seeds). Washed down with an IPA I hadn’t tried before. Yum!

    This fun spot has a wide variety of quality craft beers in addition to a full menu of sandwiches, wings, pizza, and fries. They offer hundreds of varieties of beer- literally! Meals $10 to $20.

    They don't just have beer here- there's three super yummy ciders to try too. I'm obsessed with the pineapple cider! And food is way above typical bar food.

    This hot sun makes a man crave something strong. The walls of this place are filled with taps, and not a Bud logo in sight. Go for the Saucer Black n Tan: Sierra Nevada Pale ale with Guinness on top.
