The Iced Beard

Oh boy, this was a fun one. Let’s go back and relive those Telluride times. B of D met Garrett on the way into the festival when we stopped into the refreshing Telluride Bottleworks for some much needed supplies. We found more than we expected: a fantastic beard and the chance to Ice it. A bond was formed and a new Telluride tradition was created. We Iced him every day….perhaps we just iced ourselves. We’ll never know. Garrett moved down to Telluride almost a year ago from Seattle. He’s been growing his current beard for just about a month (keep it up, buddy!) but has already found one of the amazing bearded perks—twirling the ‘ol mustache tips. Free time is solved! He said his mother is “okay with the beard, as long as I go somewhere in my life”. Garrett, my friend. The beard will take you where you need to go----onward and upward. He’s looking forward to another beautiful southern Colorado winter when he can pick the icicles out of his beard after skiing. Icicles? Iced? It was meant to be.

Tellu-ride the Gondola!

Until you’ve ridden the gondola with this beard, you haven’t lived. Meet Trevor! Hopefully we can help convince Trevor that his future move from Steamboat to Denver is a wise decision. (Do bearded men ever make wrong decisions? Didn’t think so.) Trevor, here’s just a small example of the bearded love you will soon be receiving on the regular. We support you. We support your patience and dedication to the bearded cause. Move where the beer flows like wine and the beards are celebrated with local pride! Trevor’s face hasn’t been naked for 8 months, when he sadly shaved for an unsuccessful job interview (hint: next time, keep the beard. It sends your future employer this message: “I can handle anything”). Trevor is a mapper, we weren’t surprised. Follow a bearded man into the forest, you will never be lost. His favorite part about his beard is that it has two vortexes. He warned us not to get too close because “you’ll fall in”. Don’t mind if we do, Trevor!
