Beard 1, A.L.L 0

Jon gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Bad Ass Beard'. This self described "shady Broncos orange” beard has made one hell of a come back. His poor chin was temporarily naked while Jon kicked the shit out of cancer. Two years later, the beard is back and better than ever! Thanks for sharing, Jon! A beard that can take down A.L.L is one beard you don't want to mess with.

Buffalo Beards

This duo could quite possibly be the manliest, beardest most mountain man-ish find yet! Meet Blair (papa beard) and Jed (son beard). It came as no surprise to us that these beards were raised in a colder climate. They moved from Minnesota to Colorado just under 2 years ago. When asked why, Blair responded "I take it you've never been to Minnesota in the winter". With beards like this we may have to move! This pair has learned that growing beards together creates a special father/son bond that clearly the women of the house don't understand. Blair's nickname from his oldest daughter is ‘chia pet’ (we think ‘bear fighter’ is a better fit). His wife does offer her support; she's just anxiously awaiting a trim. Nice work, men!

Secret Agent Beard

No matter what part of town we're in, we seem to be lucky enough to encounter some amazing bearded men, and last Saturday on South Broadway was no exception to that rule. Zach is a Colorado native we met while he was ordering a pint at the Irish Rover. Zach keeps his beard most of the year and claims it holds lots of secrets--we can only imagine. Zach and his beard live in Capitol Hill and when not out in SoBo he can be found helping people out with their insurance claims at the DMV when they jack up their cars; a noble trade indeed. Zach assured us his lady friend loves his beard--or else she's a talented liar--and that his dad is jealous of his beard skills; he hopes to grow his own beard out once he retires. We're glad Zach's father has his eyes on the prize. And did we mention that cardigan?  Yeah, probably didn't have to, but it sure adds to the whole lot of awesome here. Thanks Zach!

Aloha Beard

Maybe some would argue that not ALL good things pass through the Bluebird Theater in Denver, but over the years a whole lot of fabulous bands--and fabulous beards--sure have. Meet Brian and his bodacious beard.  Brian and his lovely girlfriend Caley recently moved from Hawaii to Boulder and we met them before the Rob Drabkin concert at the Bluebird last Friday. Originally from Texas, Brian hasn't shaved his beard in the past seven years, and shows true dedication by working on his beard 24/7 (we probably don't need to mention that men with beards are especially witty). He's always doing something interesting with his beard, and in his other spare time he's an LSAT teacher, a massage therapist, and dabbles in music himself; an example of a true multi-talented bearded dude. Caley, who works as a doula, of course loves and supports Brian's awesome beard.  We wouldn't expect anything less from a bearded man's main lady.  Great to meet you and have you and your beard in Colorado!

Southern Gentleman

Who says chivalry is dead? We met Seth Williams, a true southern gentleman originally from Tennessee, working the door at Goosetown Tavern (one of B of D's fave haunts) last week. Seth and his impressive beard have lived in City Park in Denver the past three years, and he proudly declared that he "ALWAYS has a beard." Seth and his beard love Colorado and when he's not carding thirsty patrons at the Goose he can be found hiking 14ers with his dog, Mary, attending Widespread Panic shows--over 100 to date--or at the Ecotech Institute, where he's a full-time electrical engineering student. Seth's one busy gent, as he also works at Home Depot where his colleagues refer to him as "The Bearded Wonder" (we're not surprised). He also noted that he's considered having a shirt made that read, "I had a beard before it was cool." Of course, we at Beards of Denver never knew when beards weren't cool. Make sure to say hi to Seth next time you're at the Goose!

One Red Hot Beard

We met Jeter and his fantastic beard based on a hot tip from one of our other local bearded gems that we must check out the bearded gents at Fire on the Mountain restaurant in Highlands, and boy were we glad that we did.  Jeter hails from Mississippi, but has called Colorado home for the past two years and landed in Denver in September 2012. He and his sweetheart Jessica had been visiting friends in Vail and Avon for years and finally decided to make the wise choice and move to Colorado . When we encountered Jeter last week, Jessica had just trimmed his beard because it literally was becoming a fire hazard; he had burned it the day before! Jessica noted she loves Jeter's beard, despite the fact he often gets beer in it and that she occasionally finds that he's left her comb in the shower because he's been grooming his glorious beard with it. She doesn't mind though; that's what we call true beard love!

“Th’Ink Tank” Beard

We recently read that according to research, beards can predict whether you’re a badass or board room material. Let us introduce you to the beautiful badass beard of Brian. B of D met Brian when providing some moral support for a friend’s shoulder getting some beautiful work done. Brian told us a razor has not touched his face in over 5 years and his current beard is 5 months old. His favorite part about the beard is “obviously not shaving”. He particularly loves the auburn rich color that it provides. His beard prep routine includes an occasional brush and some added jojoba oil to replace some of the natural oils. Brian has called Denver home for the past 2 years. He hails from North Little Rock, Arkansas and has been tattooing for 8 years. You can find him at Denver’s Th’Ink Tank Tattoo Studio on Broadway where he can create exactly what you’re searching for---that includes beard tattoos. He mentioned a couple of beards that are on his portfolio. He created a centaur with his lovely mug as the head and he also tattooed a bearded lady on his buddy’s kneecap. Perhaps the women behind B of D will one day have the crest permanently placed on their bodies?

L.A.M.A. Live Beards

It was our pleasant surprise to encounter  three members of Denver's up-and-coming hip-hop band L.A.M.A. Live at the Whiskey Bar last week before their band practice. Ha Boogie (left), Nam (center), and Matt (right) have been playing music together the past two years and counting, and rocking those beards together as well. Ha Boogie hails from Queens, Nam from Brooklyn, and our boy Matt is a Colorado native, but they all three call Denver home now, and they wouldn't change that for the world, because, in their words "The most beautiful women in the world live in Denver." Keep talking like that boys, and sporting those beards, and the ladies will certainly come a calling. Speaking of beautiful women, when asked what their mothers thought of their beards, Ha Boogie said his mom loves it because it makes him look more like his father, Nam's beard is still in its infancy so his mom hasn't weighed in yet, and Matt's mom doesn't like his beard (we, of course, respectively disagree). You can catch L.A.M.A. Live TOMORROW when they open for Vanilla Ice in Lakewood at the Grizzly Rock! Be there.

Eat Your Veggies Beard

Sometimes when you go grocery shopping on Sunday afternoon you find a lot better things than bread and milk. We happened upon Phil and his awesome--and healthy--beard in the produce section of Sunflower Market in Highlands. Phil's been growing his beard the past 10 years, and he and five of his buddies recently had a competition to see who could grow the best, most badass beard, but Phil said he sadly lost because he had to trim his beard for a big meeting, as he works for an environmental non-profit. In Phil's words his beard was "way out of control." We're thinking we would have approved. Phil's wife loves his beard, and wants him to grow it even longer; she's obviously a very wise woman. We certainly hope Phil grants her request and grows his beard out to its full beard-potential!

PBR Proud Beards

We met Alex Townsend and Matt Kiernan at the Ogden Theater on Thursday while they were buying PBR tallboys and preparing to enjoy the Trampled by Turtles show. Matt (right) is a snowboarder who keeps his beard only during Beard Season to keep his face warm.  Alex (left) finished his stint in the Air Force in Summer 2009 and has enjoyed the freedom to grow his beard as full and long as he'd like since then.  We just missed seeing it even burlier, as he had to trim back his awesome beard for his sister's wedding recently.Both Matt and Alex attest to the fact their mothers are not fans of their beards but we respectfully disagree--all that handsomeness is even better with beards!  Matt and Alex work together at Trulia real estate in advertising, and we're sure they don't have any trouble selling property with the help of their amazing beards. Thanks guys!
