Last night, the Flying Saucer unveiled its 2009-2010 Beer Knurd calendar. The top Knurds — members of the U.FO. Club who've earned multiple commemorative plates by consuming many, many beers — were selected from the company's 10-plus locations.
One Knurd in Memphis and one in Cordova were calendar models.
Feast your eyes below.
Mr. November is Cordova member Tom Snyder.
Mr. January is Memphis member Gary Smith.
Congrats to both.
Interested in throwing your frosty mug in the Beer Knurd ring? Answer the trivia question below for your chance to receive a free U.F.O. Club membership card (an $18 value), a Beer Knurd calendar, and a t-shirt.
U.F.O. members earn commemorative plates each time they drink 200 different beers (3 beers allowed per day), with the beers recorded on the card. It goes without saying that members must be 21 or older.
Here's the question, provided by Memphis Saucer general manager Kirk Caliendo.
What brewery produced the first "Oktoberfest" beer in honor of the annual celebration of King Ludwig I?
