The Scoop: New downtown gastropub nears opening

January 28th 02:01pm, 2013

Flying Saucer Draught Emporium is preparing to open doors at its new St. Louis location. Construction of the gastropub, located just west of Busch Stadium at 900 Spruce St., is on target for a March 1 grand opening, according to Flying Saucer’s assistant general manager Rebecca Keiffer. Among the highlights, she noted, is a patio which spans the entire block.

Keiffer explained that beer offerings will include 80 on draft, including 15 to 20 dedicated to local taps. Bottled beers will number between 120 and 140. The food menu at the seven-days-a-week lunch and dinner spot, similar to that at other Flying Saucer spots, will feature burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers including nachos, cheese fries, wings, salads and soups. However, Keiffer noted that, “We have the opportunity as individual stores to make up our own food specials. We’re allowed to be creative and do our own thing.” One of those creative projects is to “eventually host beer dinners jointly with breweries.”

Flying Saucer Draught Emporium began in the mid-1990s in Fort Worth, Texas. The St. Louis location will bring the Flying Saucer tally to 16, with franchises across six states.
