Take this beard all the way

 On occasion, the stars align for the ladies of Beards of Denver.  When we think we’re simply heading out on the town for an always-innocent night of sippin’ whiskey and dancin’ to the folk-Americana-bluegrass-accordion-laced music we fancy, wouldn’t you know, a fabulous beard enters our orbit. Such was the case on a recent Friday night at Larimer Lounge in Denver, when our already wonderful night of listening to the amazing tunes of Hurray for the Riff Raff and Spirit Family Reunion was topped off by meeting Joe from Denver and admiring his amazing beard.  Believe it or not, ladies and gentlebeards, this is Joe’s first foray into serious beard growth.  He’s been growing his beard since February, and shared with us that lots of guys “Think they are not beard guys because it grows in patchy” but was adamant they need to stay the course and get past those uncomfortable stages until they reach full beard glory. We, of course, couldn’t agree more.  Joe, who often used to shave his head, altered his hair cut to complement his beard. Such good choices!  Joe shampoos his beard every few days, and came about using a beard cream in a rather serendipitous fashion.  Walking into the Dive Inn bar on South Broadway one night, he encountered a bar back there who makes a beard cream called Don’s Beard Cream, which accounts for his beard’s soft texture (turns out you can buy this at Indie 6).  Yet another example of wonderful Denver Beard-brotherhood. Originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, this good Midwestern boy has called our fair city of Denver home the past eight years.  When not grooming his beard, he plays guitar and generally philosophizes.  Believe it or not ladies, Joe’s a free agent, which we’re sure won’t last for long with a beard like his.  He plans to put in at least a full year of beard growth, declaring “I feel like I’ve come so far and I need to take it to the limit.  Why do anything if you’re not going to go all the way?” Take it all the way, Joe! We can’t wait to see how your beard progresses come February.

Strong Man Beard

Occasionally here at Beards of Denver we are fortunate enough to feature some of our good buddies and their bomb beards, and such is the case today.  Beards of Denver lovelies, meet Kyle.  Residing in Denver now for over eight years, Kyle’s a true local Denver bearded gem.  Kyle’s beard represents his beard-growing effort over the entire summer, and this is the longest his beard has ever been in his life, and we certainly applaud and support this beard dedication!  When we snapped this pic of Kyle in mid-September he was, sadly, planning to trim his beard to attend a wedding, but don’t fear, beard-adoring public: Kyle always participates in Movember (where he usually sports an impressive handlebar ‘stache) and is planning to Beard Up again for the winter (we’d have to have a serious talk if this wasn’t the case). Kyle’s lovely mother, who also lives in the Denver area, does not approve of his beard because she thinks the ladies won’t like it; luckily, we can prove that theory wrong right here and now! Kyle fully embraces the grey featured in his beard, as we believe he should.  When he’s not attending to his facial hair Kyle competes locally in Olympic weightlifting, where there is some precedent for awesome facial hair, and we’re certainly glad this strong man is joining the bearded-muscle ranks. Thanks Kyle! Can’t wait to see what Movember holds.

The Friend Maker

It's not everyday that a girl walks into a Chicken Wings joint and encounters one of the most impressive beards she's ever seen; but when you're a lady of Beards of Denver, sometimes that hankering for chicken wings and an affinity for discovering great beards collide, and great things happen. Beards of Denver, meet Sam. Originally from Saginaw, Michigan, he's lived in Denver for 14 years, and his amazing beard is a testament to his scholarship; he's been growing his beard for three and a half years, the length of his stint as a doctoral student in the creative writing program at UC Denver. Sam loves having his beard, and stated its's his "friend maker" and helps him get his message across and presents a certain constitution, one of patience and that he works on things. He loves the subliminals that come from the noverbals of the beard, and I don't think we could've stated it an better than that. Sam's wonderful wife Pari loves his beard, and has actually only seen him once without it. She says it's also softer than day-old scruff and encouraged him to use morrocan oil in it. Sam is a huge fan of Al at Al's Barber Shop downtown on Larimer; Al makes sure Sam's beard is all trimmed up, particularly around his mouth, which we've learned is essential. Both Sam and Pari stated that Sam's beard changes interactions with people because he gets approached far more often with it than without. They say people build bridges?  Well, I think we have the proof here that beards do.

It’s not everyday that a girl walks into a Chicken Wings joint and encounters one of the most impressive beards she’s ever seen; but when you’re a lady of Beards of Denver, sometimes that hankering for wings combined with an affinity for discovering great beards collides, and magic happens. Beards of Denver fans, meet Sam. Originally from Saginaw, Michigan, he’s lived in Denver for 14 years, and his amazing beard is a testament to his scholarship; he’s been growing his beard for three and a half years, the length of his stint as a doctoral student in the creative writing program at University of Denver. Sam loves having his beard, and stated it’s his “friend maker;” it helps him get his message across to people by presenting a certain constitution, one of patience and that he works for things, and he prizes the “subliminals that come from the nonverbals of the beard” (we couldn’t have stated it any better than that). Sam’s wonderful wife Pari is the number one fan of his beard, and has actually only seen him once without it (impressive because they’ve been together for something like 19 years!) Pari says Sam’s long beard is also softer than day-old scruff and encouraged him to use morrocan oil in it for better care. Sam is a huge fan of Al at Al’s Barber Shop downtown on Larimer; Al makes sure Sam’s beard is all trimmed up, particularly around his mouth, which we’ve learned is essential. Both Sam and Pari stated that Sam’s beard changes interactions with people because he gets approached far more often the longer it gets. You think that people build bridges?

Luck ‘O The Irish Beard

We've all heard of Luck of the Irish, but it was luck for the ladies of Beards of Denver to meet Mr. Al Trout on St. Patrick's Day at the Whiskey Bar in Denver. Al, who is originally from Kansas City but has lived in Denver about four and a half years, usually has some sort of facial hair going, and we were glad it was a beard when we met him! Recently, Al boasted a full-on handlebar mustache, and is attempting to grow it back since the New Year. Bad-ass beards run in Al's family,  as his brother first encouraged him to grow a beard several years ago. Though we're sure Al spends lots of time contemplating his beard, he spends much more of it playing music; you can check out his Americana gems here. Thanks Al!

Buell Beard

We captured Larry and his distinguished beard at none other than the famous Buell Mansion in Denver. Though we met him living it up on Friday night at the Buell, Larry lives in Congress Park with his wife Anne, and can often be found showcasing his beard at Goosetown Tavern on Thursday nights. Larry's had his beard for over 25 years, and though Anne loves it, she does miss seeing his awesome chin on occasion. The main reason he sports this fabulous look? Like so many of our other Beards of Denver, he hates shaving, and we're sure glad he does.
