New F&B outlet the Flying Saucer lands at DFW

Feast your eyes on the Flying Saucer, the new restaurant/bar in Terminal D at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

The new outlet is DFW's tribute to the original Flying Saucer Draught Emporium opened by local restauranteur, Shannon Wynne, in Fort Worth in 1995. 

With an emphasis on quality and choice, the concept perfectly mirrored the US's burgeoning craft beer movement and immediately took off.

The outlet states that it is on a mission to not only serve the best artisan brews from across the globe, but also to inform and instruct on what beer should taste like, smell like and be presented.

Its goal, according to SSP America which has opened Flyer Saucer at DFW, is to present beers in a way that would make the brewers proud.

The chain can be found in 15 different cities across six states today.

At DFW’s Terminal D, the Flying Saucer invites passengers into an immersive, modern craft beer experience.

Uniquely presented over two levels, the lower level space serves as a full service gastro pub and, the upper level, offers a full service bar with live music performances.

A rotating roster of 40 draught tap handles can be found both upstairs and downstairs with an additional 52 brand options offered by the bottle.

For hungry travellers, says SSP America, the Flying Saucer offers a range of shareable plates, hamburgers, tacos, fish and chips, as well as regionally-sourced specialty bratwursts.

Kyle Phillips, SSP America’s senior director for business development, said: “Dallas Fort Worth and North Texas welcomes the world at DFW. The Flying Saucer offers passengers a true, only-in-DFW, authentic local experience.

"Featuring a formidable range of beers, rarely seen in an airport location, as well as live music performances from leading local and regional musicians, these two wholly unique concepts deliver a sense of place bar none.

"SSP America is proud to partner with and showcase the country’s very best local brands.”
