    Lots of microbrews on tap, w/ new ones coming in all the time. You can get sampler trays which are awesome! Join the UFO Club, get a free t-shirt. Reach 200 beers and get name plate & $100 beer party!

    Monday trivia nights are a great time. SCIENCE!! So many beers to choose from too! The saucer bratzel is tasty and comes with a spicy dipping sauce. Join the UFO club and get your saucer on the wall!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Wednesday is glass night and it is my fave ! Buy a beer and you keep the glass =) and try the pretzels theyr'e are soft and buttery.... not exaggerating, they're the best I've ever had !

    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.

  • My Table Magazine

    This downtown joint is serious about beer and caters to those who feel the same way. The walls are covered with brass plates earned by diehards (here they’re referred to as “Masters of the Universe... Read more

    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!

  • Ryan F.

    Monday night 2.75 drafts. Try Victory's Golden Monkey, the most bang for your buck at a 8.5 or greater alcohol content. Sunday night 2.75 Texas Drafts and forget about that Shiner Bach, get with the b

    One of my favorite places in Downtown Houston, try Sour Beer, is not so good but the flavor is one on it's kind !!

    Tuesday night trivia at the Saucer made Project Manager Niki's top geek places in Houston list. Find her there, where she'll won't be using Google for once.

    EXCELLENT beer! The Belgium Framboise one, served in a champagne glass is outstanding! Really cool atmosphere and great to just chill out.

    Roberta Born · May 28, 2011
  • Seth D.

    The atmosphere and service here is no where near the one in Ft. Worth. Had it not been for the craft brew selection, I would have left.

    Great pub with some great beers but don't start a tab, it's a nightmare trying to get the money back that they took without your permission.

  • Robin L.

    I have one plate here in Houston, and one in Kansas City! My plate in Kansas City states: "Houston, we have a problem. I need another beer!" The Saucer is fun wherever you find them...

  • David C.

    Not a huge fan of the atmosphere in this crowded, after work bar, but it the beer selection is second to none in the city.

    David Carr · July 30, 2013
  • Travis C.

    Huge tap list with nice rotation. Bartenders seem too busy to discuss the beer. Wait stuff doesn't seem to know the beer.

    Travis Combel · August 23, 2014
  • Paul O.

    Awesome service and pub atmosphere! Definitely try the Southern Star Bombshell Blonde's a little too good!

    Paul O'Connor · September 15, 2011

    Fantastic selection of beer Good service. A bit of an 'oily ' smell indoors from kitchens So outside is better.

    Hummingbird water and the Saucer Bratzel were amazing! Must try! And the chili was pretty good too.

    Brandy M. · December 29, 2014
  • Mike S.

    Amazing beer selection. Food is decent - a bit too much German food for my liking. Great atmosphere

    Mike Seilback · December 29, 2015
  • Stephen A.

    The beer spot that caters to all! Want awesome newly released Craft brews? Got em. Want watered down mainstream beers? Got those too.

    Every Wednesday night at 7:00 is brewery night featuring a different brewery glass with their beer!

    Best beer selection in Houston ... but you are not real until you are a UFO club member with a plate on the wall!

    Try the River Rocket sandwich for a little twist on a classic. Just trust me!

    Ashley Romano · May 2, 2013

    Large selection of beers, good spot to walk to after/before Astros games at Minute Maid Park

    Kick ass chicken sandwich is fantastic. Same with the jalapeño tater tot poppers.

    Briana Rodriguez · June 21, 2015
  • Laura G.

    After 10 years, the beer cheese soup served in a bread bowl is still the best!

    Laura Gracey · July 12, 2015
  • Dan B.

    The late trivia on Tues. is fun, but you better know current events, movies, TV and books.

    Dan Begallie · June 29, 2011
  • Marley R.

    Good luck getting the bartenders attention on a Thursday! They are nice, but not very attentive!

  • Aaron W.

    Great place for a huge variety of beers, but none particularly interesting.

    Aaron Wieczorek · January 3
  • Maaria Y.

    Cool place for beer lovers. Enjoyed the private party space upstairs.

    Maaria Yasin · August 22, 2015
  • Christopher L.

    Don't let Sokies drink. He makes a mess of the table and the management will ask you to leave.

    Christopher Logan · July 18, 2011
  • Andie P.

    If you don't really like the taste of heavy beers try Woodchuck. It's an apple cider beer. Very refreshing!

    Andie Preston · May 27, 2011
  • Danielle S.

    the kick ass chicken sandwhich is my fave (yes, its actually called the kick ass chicken sandwhich)

    You have to try the hot pretzels and queso! It will change you life...

    Darrell Westcott · September 1, 2011

    Beer, beer, beer. Great place to go grab some food before hitting bars in downtown. They are open late too though.

    Anita Alvz de Cortes · December 16, 2014

    The best spinach dip around!! The spicy hummus is really good as well!!

    Nate Adams · June 14, 2013

    Best beer selection in Houston. See if you can find my plate, it's near the door.

    Brett H · June 24, 2009
  • Dustin C.

    The vegetarian waitress's don't eat meat. Ask them about salads and wheat beer.

    Dustin Chad · August 23, 2010

    Really good craft beer bar. The food is good and the service great.

    Greg Lear · March 12, 2014

    Great rotation on their beers. The bratzel is worth every penny.

    Ask for Amanda at the bar as she is THE BOMB and will totally take care of you...=)
