Joel Garland Bekken. Real name, real beard. Our endless reasearch has so far proved that you can find amazing beards in Denver pretty much anywhere. We found him at an art exhibit on Santa Fe. When he’s not appreciating fine photography, this man lives the life of a stereotypical beard–he lives up in the hills and works at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. He said he loves his beard because it keeps him warm during those cold winter nights and that it’s just “too un-manly not to have a beard”. We agree.
