We met Brad in Boulder at the Of Monsters and Men show last week. His main reason for growing his beard is, like so many men we encounter, laziness (in regards to shaving). Brad usually keeps his beard for a month or two before shaving it and starting over. He spent some time in Alaska in recent years, where his beard was really able to grow out to its full glory. We can only imagine how magnificent it was!. Brad and his beard are Colorado natives and we sure hope he decides to extend his beard’s lifetime, at least throughout the current Beard Season!
You know you’re going to have an awesome pie eating experience if this beard has anything to do with it. We had the pleasure of meeting Brian at Kaos Pizza last weekend. He’s been growing this burly beard for the past 2 1/2 years. When we asked what his bearded beauty secrets were, he immediately took out a comb from his back pocket and showed us his dread prevention. He also only uses Aveda products on his locks. He enjoys the different colors that his beard displays—and he also likes that people often mistake him for Fidel Castro. Liberty for beards or death!
We have another visiting beard to display/celebrate. Meet Mr. Eric Evans from Salt Lake. We met him and his kick ass hockey crew at the DU/Badger hockey game. Eric’s been growing this gnarly beard since June. He told his team that he would grow it until they lost….they obviously have yet to lose. He loves that people think he can lift heavy things. He also gave us his secret recipe for his style–he uses Carmex with a touch of saliva for his mustache. Yum! We’re pulling for your team—keep growing that sweet beard!
Nothing better than getting Modelo via drive through (God bless Merica!) and having this sweet beard serve it to you! Zazzy’s been growing this beaut for 2 months. When asked what he loves about it he said, “Everything–the warmth, the compliments. I love it all”. We asked him where this beard originated from and he said “up the street”. You can’t get more local than that. Zazzy’s a big fan of facial hair and looks forward to celebrating all winter long. He informed us some pretty important upcoming holidays. First there was Movember, now Decembeard, next is Manuary and then Februhairy. This winter’s looking up!
We couldn’t NOT approach Cory at the Bacon and Beer Fest on Sunday and inquire about his bold and brash beard. A Colorado native, he and his beard have resided in Denver for the past two years, and he’s been growing his beard about five years. He rocks his beard mainly because his wife loves it (obviously, a woman with great taste!) and he used to like “bad facial hair” and thought it was funny to groom his facial hair in a variety of ways, until he realized the beard suited him best. Cory works as a social worker in the Denver area, helping connect the community to a variety of resources, and we’re sure his awesome beard is a great asset to that cause. Awesome to meet you and admire your beard, Cory!
We had the pleasure of meeting Dan and admiring his awesome beard while sampling the Wynkoop’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout beer at the Bacon and Beer Fest at Mile High Station Sunday (trust us–the beer was extremely tasty and the beard extraordinarily rad). When Dan isn’t hocking Wynkoop beers at the Bacon and Beer fest, he’s busy with sales for Wynkoop around the Denver area. He’s been growing his beard since October 1st and plans to grow it until April 1st, and we’ll be sure to have a progress report for you at that time–we can’t wait to see the final results! (Though we hope he doesn’t decide to shave it all off at that time).
We were lucky enough to happen upon @Moush_Tastic (left) and Gino (right) at the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival on Sunday. @Moush_Tastic has been in Denver about two years and enjoys changing up his facial hairstyles between the stand alone ‘stache and his beard, and Gino’s a Denver native who’s been growing his beard about two-and-a-half months and will keep it until January, when a trip to Mexico may call for shaving it (we hope he reconsiders, though!) These buddies were thoroughly enjoying the bacon and the beer and their beards added to the fabulousness of the event. Cheers dudes!
We met Scott, self-professed Owner, Brewer, and Dreamer at Wits End Brewing Company in Denver at the Beer and Bacon Fest at Mile High Station in Denver on Sunday. Scott’s been growing his impressive beard since August, and when asked if the coloration was natural his response was “Do I look like a guy who’d dye his beard?” It’s that amazing natural talent we love and appreciate here at Beards of Denver. Originally from Seattle, Scott’s been in Denver about 11 years and we highly recommend going to Wits End to say hi to Scott, admire his beard, and sample Wits End’s amazing coffee beer–you won’t be disappointed in the coffee brew or the beard!
Britt and his beard are fairly new editions to Denver–they’ve only been here about 5 months, before that residing in Buffalo, Arizona, and California. He attributes his amazing beard to sloth-like qualities; he’s lazy when it comes to shaving so the beard is a great alternative. He also was envious of his brother’s amazing beard which lead him to grow his out. In addition to his beard-like talents, he’s an all-star ballroom dancer and a pro at shooting clay pigeons; take notice, all you beard, gun, and dance fans! He’s the trifecta.
Nick and his glitter-tastic beard impressed us today at the Ugly Sweater 5K fun run in City Park. Nick, who is originally from Idaho, has been known to glitterize and otherwise accessorize his beard for multiple occasions, and he didn’t disappoint today; among the many bearded dudes (and ugly sweaters) in the park, he stood out above the rest. He’s had his beard for the better part of the past four years, and we sure hope he continues to glitterize it for years to come!
