Flying High in SC

After a not-too-long walk from the hotel, made it to the Flying Saucer, or more accurately, The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium!

The hosts Josh, Ashley and Morgan were great, and seemed to know a lot about the beers; very patient with beer geeks apparently. 

Tried flights of the following:

New Belgium - French Aramis IPA Hop Kitchen Series - Ale, IPA, American
Thomas Creek - River Falls Red Ale - Ale, Red
Sweetwater - IPA - Ale, IPA, American
Lefevbre - Blanche de Bruxelles - Ale, Belgian White
Southern Tier - Plum Noir Blackwater Series - Ale, Porter, Imperial
NoDa - Hop, Drop 'n Roll - Ale, IPA
RJ Rockers - Bald Eagle Brown - Ale, Brown
Conquest - Warrior Heart IPA - Ale, IPA, Double
Good SRM 7 colour and very fresh hops 
RJ Rockers - Bell Ringer - Ale, Strong, American
The flavours hide the ABV - which at 8.5 is where the "bell is rung" 
River Dog - Chocolate Rye Porter - Ale, Porter, American
Estrella - Damm - Lager, Light
Founders - Dirty Bastard - Ale, Scotch
Boulder Brewing  - Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout  - Ale, Stout, Oatmeal
Green Flash - Hop Odyssey Imperial Red Rye IPA - Ale, Red, Imperial
Liefmans - Goudenband - Ale, Belgian Flanders Brown  [4,397]
Yes - it's great, as I am a whore for Belgian beers (as are all Club Belgique members) 

Oh yes, and the food was excellent!
