Damn the Man, Grow the Beard!

It’s no secret that a lot of our fantastic beard encounters here at Beards of Denver have occurred  whilst sampling some of the many fine brews crafted in our wonderful city.  It was on such an occasion on a recent chilly fall Saturday night that we found ourselves at Black Shirt Brewing, only to have our hearts warmed by meeting Ben and admiring his glorious beard.  Ben even managed to surprise us (we’re normally so unflappable) by admitting to being a Beards of Denver fan! You’re earning mega points there, Ben. The incarnation of Ben’s beard was about a year ago when he started a new gig and proclaimed he was no longer going to shave, which obviously has been a huge gain for the entire universe.  Ben, who’s lived in Denver about a year, is a true-bearded Coloradan, hailing from one of our favorite cities and northern neighbor, Fort Collins.  Ben shared that beard growth is all in the family: his dad hosts an annual chili party where almost all the men in Ben’s family sport beards, and we certainly expect an invite to the next one!  Ben’s wonderful wife of a year-and-a-half, Brittany, loves his beard, and we predict a long and happy life together for these two; after all, a bond built on beard-love cannot be broken!  Ben says normally strangers seem to fear his beard, with the notable exception of Beards of Denver (of course). Thanks Ben, keep the beard going strong!
