Saucer Probes P&L

Considering that beer constitutes 85.8% of all alcohol consumed in the United States, chances are good that the descent of the Flying Saucer (101 E. 13th St.) into the Power & Light district, with its selection of 130 bottles and 80 drafts, will satisfy beer snobs and contribute to local beer goggle shenanigans. The 13th franchise installment of the “draught emporium” is taking microbrew consumption to galactic heights with Brewery Night every Wednesday, when the featured brewery offers its selection in a free printed glass. This week, choose any draft from the wall and get it in a Flying Saucer pint glass for only $2.75. Perfect for those who have yet to try a Wychwood Hobgoblin from England or an Abita Turbo Dog from Louisiana. Only one free glass per customer, but the special prices go from 7 p.m. until close.
