DALLAS, TEXAS – During May The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium is supporting men’s health as part of a promotion with Pints for Prostates to send a lucky winner and their guest on a nine-night Real Ale Adventure to England.

“This is the sixth year we are teaming up with Pints for Prostates on what has become a tradition of sending one of our ‘Beerknurds’ and a guest on the beer trip of a lifetime. The Flying Saucer is excited to support a great cause with this company-wide awareness celebration about a disease that has touched so many of our customers,” said Keith Schlabs of the Flying Saucer. “In the past five years we’re proud to have raised more than $130,000 in the fight against prostate cancer. This trip will be very popular since England offers classic ales and a new wave of craft brewers that will make this a time of discovery for beer fans.”

Beer and travel, travel and beer — these are two of our favorite things. Both, in our estimation, are worth a fair amount of life’s energy. Our goal, and our very reason for existing, is to take our travelers to the best beer destinations, drink, taste and enjoy the best beers, meet the beer-loving people of the countries we visit, and explore the history, culture, art and architecture of the interesting places where beer “grew up.” To do this we stay in nice, well-located hotels, eat at great restaurants that emphasize beer in their fare, and visit breweries, brew pubs, cafes and museums that enhance our understanding and appreciation of beer, its rich history and culture.
