Fort Worth's Flying Saucer offers a cozy space for quaffing alien beers

The menu of bottled beers is even more expansive and eclectic, with selections from China, Africa, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, and Mexico. About 200 brews all told are available at any one time.

Beer on draft is generally preferred by veteran swillers, however, as it's smoother, fresher-tasting, and less fizzy than bottled beer. It's also more temperamental. Kegs are sensitive and can be affected by the weather. On a recent warm day, three consecutive orders of different draft beers came back flat, a heartbreaking letdown, particularly when your whole being craves the solace that beer can bring.

On another trip, though, each draft seemed fresher, mellower, and more satisfying than the last. That's the secret of good beer--it wears well--as does this genial, well-appointed pub.
