    Unforgettable experience for craft beer lovers: more than 240 beers, 100 on tap, nice staff, good food, pleasant outside area and, obviously, the UFO Club. Be loyal and become part of the history.

    Amazing pretzels - best we've had on this continent, by far. Be sure to try all three dips (queso, spicy mustard, cream cheese and chive) the first time. Warning: Be careful with the mustard!!!

    One of the best bars in downtown Raleigh. Definitely join the UFO club for the full experience: it forces you to try new beers and get out of your comfort zone.

    Obviously the beer selection is on point but if you are looking for some grub - flying tots and the pretzel with queso are a win!

    The soft pretzels are amazing. You might think "how can a pretzel be that good?" But you would be wrong and they are fantastic

    large beer selection. only ~3% is impressive craft beer. skip the pint glass unless u dig drinking room temp beer w/in 5mins of it hitting the table. bartender is best guide, wait staff is clueless.

    Order the "Isa style" dry rub wings! They're not on the menu but they're delicious and specially made by one of their very own cooks.

    The pretzel with cheese is great. Beer cheese soup in a bread bowl wasn't very good. Super soggy bread choice and overly spicy soup.

    If your flying around Raleigh and looking for a place to land, pop in and check out their huge selection of cold beer.

    Excellent beer selection, and a solid menu at reasonable prices. Can get crowded, but that's 1/2 the fun.

    Cool place....Good food....Not really too impressed with their draft list though. World of Beer at North Hills is better IMO

    LOTS of different beers, many on tap. The food is okay. Nice outdoor seating. And am I the only one who noticed the waitresses tend to be hot and wear skimpy plaid skirts?

    Brats and sauerkraut were amazing. Love the outdoor porch for a cigar after a great meal... and more beer!

    If you like Hefeweizens, try the Ayinger Brau Weisse. Amazing banana-ness!

    If you sit outside during the winter months, the heaters will certainly keep you warm. Enjoy!

    Decent selection of beer, can get noisy in the outside patio. Desinterested waiter. Whit beer in a regular pint glass was a let-down.

    Don't order a budweiser product or PBR. They have Good/Great beer here. Why would you do that?

    Had an awful experience at the Flying Saucer today and won't be going back. Party of 10 people (but divided into at least five separate parties) waited over an hour and half for food. Won't go back.

    At the computer, click "View Beers" and use the alphabetical list. It's much faster than using the Beer Finder screen.

    The stone IPA is by far the best draft here
