With 85 beers on draft and 100 more bottled, plus an extensive selection of better-than-it-has-to-be pub fare, this is the best place to find a craft brew you haven't found anywhere else. Downstairs is bustling, but you should also venture into the smallish upstairs loft known as the “Pub of Love” when you're in the mood to get up close and personal. Attracting a true cross-section of Houston beer enthusiasts, there are campy commemorative glasses (such as one with Darth Vader’s image that reads “Grab a pint with your old man”) that you can buy, sell or trade with other Flying Saucer fans. A popular Trivial Pursuit night is usually held every Tuesday.

The UFO club entry for $18 gets you a "beer knurd" t-shirt, and a credit card that you swipe to log all the beers you drink. Drink them all and earn your own commemorative saucer on the walls.
