Beerknurds in the World

We’re so very grateful for our Beerknurds. It’s our honor to bring you the very best craft beer the world has to offer and it does our hearts good to see you carrying the Saucer flag out into the world wherever you go.

It’s always a near-impossible task to make each year’s Beerknurd Calendar. Having to choose from the thousands of photos you all submit is just as hard as trying to pick our favorite beer. However, we made some tough decisions and put together a beautiful calendar for 2016-2017. Maybe our most beautiful yet.

We thank you for your submissions and for being loyal Beerknurds. Cheers to you and to all of your beer travels!
