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!

Beards of Banjos and Brews

Of course we weren’t done with the Trampled beards!
It was a pleasure meeting “Woody” (left) and “D” (right) last week at the show.
We know (perhaps from research) that you can find Woody and his beard slinging brew at the one and only Denver Beer Co. He told us his favorite part about having a beard is the lack of attention it needs and the amount of attention it gets. He must have good taste in women because his girlfriend loves his facial fur. Believe it or not, more milk than beer ends up getting caught in his beard.
D’s from Duluth, MN and is a bluegrass man through and through. We quickly learned that “D” is a man of few words. When asked about what he’d like to say for his beard he told us, “pretty sure the beard speaks for itself”. Sure does, my friend.

Brother Beard

One-half of the Beards of Denver main cohort traveled to the amazing and ever-exciting state of South Dakota a few weeks ago to celebrate Christmas time, eat entirely too much food, and document a few beards while on location.  Mark not only sports an especially impressive beard, he's also the younger brother of one of the ladies behind BOD. Mark's been growing his beard the past few months, and is pictured here with the infamous Wheaten Terrier Daisy, who sports her own impressive beard, which she, like Mark, grows out during Beard Season.  While Mark resides in Sioux Falls, South D, he does make appearance in Denver, with his next to be sometime in the early half of 2013. When he's not busy grooming his beard, he's a connoisseur of Chicken Pot Pies. Keep up the great Beard work, Mark and  Daisy!

Missouri Triple Threat

Missouri Triple Threat

Here are some guest beards for your Tuesday! Meet John, Kyle and Chris (left to right) from Missouri. John and his beard come from Joplin where he’s the president of Trumascape. He loves that his beard is a loyal companion and is always there for him. “I usually pet my beard when I’m in deep thought; it’s there to support me”. He also takes the verbal abuse from his loved ones in stride, like when his mom and sister say “we hope you’re not doing this because you think it looks good”. Be patient with them, John. Not all understand the magic of the beard.
Next we have Kyle, who started growing his beard after Movember to show up some of his friends in good ‘ol bearded competition. Ladies of Missouri, you can find this beard studying hard in PT school at Rockhurst University.
Last is the life saving beard. Chris is an ICU RN in Joplin. You know you’re in good hands with facial hair like this. What lucky patients you have!
Nice meeting you beards–now, do our community a favor and move to Denver!

Bingo Beards

We met Hunter (right), Austin (left), and their neighbor and bingo sidekick Mallory, at Goosetown Tavern during Bingo night last week.  Austin and Hunter were college roommates at CU Boulder and now they and neighbor Mallory reside in the Congress Park neighborhood in Denver. Hunter started growing his awesome beard during No Shave November last month, and it has grown into a fantastic Decem-beard. Austin began growing his Amish-like beard a year and a half ago, and his beard has been inspired by mystical/magical direction, as he swears he sucked on a dying unicorn's horn and its last wish was for Austin to grow an Amish beard, so, naturally, he obliged (you can't turn down a dying unicorn's last wish, after all). In addition, Austin, who grew up in Southern California but was born in Colorado, swears the unicorn presented him with a bouquet of lilies, a packet of glitter, and a lifetime supply of pink and purple Nerds, not to mention blessed him with 7 fortunes in 2013, which one, obviously, is to grow an amazing beard. We're not sure what the whole truth is, but we can vouch that both of their beards were awesome.  And next time at Bingo, they're sure to win!

All in the Family Beard

Josh was another beard spotted at the Denver Beer Festivus in Civic Center Park on Sunday.  Pictured with Josh and his amazing beard are his father on the left, who was visiting from Lincoln, Nebraska for the weekend (and beard a striking resemblance to Sean Connery), and Josh’s brother on the right, Jarrett, who greatly assisted in Josh’s beard interview. We learned Josh has had his beard for the past decade, and has been growing a beard since he was 15 years old.  Jarrett used to have a rockin’ beard, too, but because of fear of bird attacks he cut back.  Due to Jarrett’s top-notch interviewing skills, we learned that Josh has never been attacked by flying objects because of his beard, but he did recently have a sparrow trapped in his house and it came perilously close to nesting in Josh’s fantastic beard.  Luckily, it seems he was left unscathed. But, birds beware: we can’t imagine the beard power if all three of these gentlemen grew their beards out!

Bacon, Beards, Beers, Buddies

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 the 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!

Cheese-tastic Times Two

It’s well known that all the Pretty People frequent Whole Foods in Cherry Creek, so it was no surprise to encounter Brett (left) and Devin (right) and their awesome facial hair there this week. Brett, born and raised in Loveland, Colorado, has bared his beard, on and off, for the past decade. Devin is originally from Virginia, but he and his impressive sideburns now call Colorado home. You too can experience their bearded prowess at Whole Foods, where they teach a monthly class on cheese and pairings. All we can say is sign us up!

Jazzy Duo

We literally danced into these two darling beards at El Chapultepec in downtown Denver recently. Chris and Rob may just be beginning to grow out their beards for Beard Season, but we have no doubt they’ll be appropriately burly and brusque in no time! Keep a look out for these two at El Chapultepec and generally around Denver to scout their progress.

In the bearding together

Neil Moherman (left) from Ashland, Ohio and Bryan Fulk (right) from Los Angeles, California have been best friends far longer than they’ve been able to grow beards–their moms were girl scout troop leaders together in Ohio when they were kids. Neil, who entered the Full Beard, Natural competition, came out with top honors–earning the prestigious Gold Medal–and has been growing his long, blonde, beardlocks for five years. Both Neil and Bryan went to the World Championships in Anchorage, Alaska a few years ago, and got hooked on bearding. While Bryan competed in the Verdi Beard category in Anchorage, he was in Vegas solely for moral support this time around. All we know is that we’d hang out with this dashing bearded duo anytime they’re around.
