Modest Mustache

It’s Movember, Beards of Denver faithful, and to kick it off right we bring you a magnificent, yet modest, mustache! Meet Macon, who has been growing his stellar ‘stache for over two years.  Originally from Houston, Macon’s been a Coloradoan since 2001 and a Denverite since 2007.  He told us the best part of sporting his ‘stache is that people buy him drinks all the time, and the worst part is that everyone wants to talk about it—guilty as charged—particularly bros, kids, and cougars (why are we not surprised about the cougars?  Look at that face!)  In fact, Macon’s been beckoned by cougars who asked him if mustache rides are free; Ladies, take note: Please buy the gentleman a drink first! While most people approach Macon to admire his mustache, occasionally people are aggressive; and he even got called out on the 16th Street mall recently. Obviously, that person needed to feel the ‘stache love.  Speaking of love, Macon said his sweethearts are a fan of his ‘stache, and are always surprised at how soft it is, which may be due to the fact he waxes it almost everyday with mustache wax a friend gave him called Mr. Mustard’s Magnificent Magical Mustache Manicuring Miracle Wax (say that five times fast), which he keeps in his pocket right next to his Altoids. We love that dedication to the ‘stache. Macon’s mom and sis like his ‘stache more than when he had his beard, as they want to see those gorgeous cheekbones! Understandable, ladies. Macon told us when he rocked his beard it was really wiry, but he figured it was a good way to find a great lady: If a girl loved him with his big, wiry, ridiculous beard she must really love him.  We’re just glad at least the ‘stache lives on. Besides growing that superb ‘stache, Macon is a professional musician, playing upright bass and guitar in a few bands in town, including the wonderful band Paper Bird (who we’re big fans of here at Beards of Denver). He also dabbles in landscaping, carpentry, and soon pedi-cabbing.  We predict people will be lining up to get a pedi-cab ride from this ‘stache!  If you see Macon around, perhaps just give him a knowing nod of appreciation; he likes that his ‘stache is well-received but doesn’t always need to talk about it. Duly noted, and most appreciated. Thanks Macon!

Dead-On Guest Stache

Beards of Denver fans, meet Dan!  We were lucky enough to happen upon Dan and his impressive 'stache many moons ago at the Lucero show in Denver at the Bluebird in April. Dan is always experimenting with his facial hair, and this is the first time he's done just the 'stache, and back in April he had this for about three months. He told us he is continuing to grow it through the summer, and you can see for yourself next week at the Underground Music Showcase on Sunday where Dan will be playing guitar with the band The Deadwood Saints.  Tickets here. Thanks Dan! We'll definitely try and catch you Sunday!

Awesome Beard on Elm Street

There aren’t always nightmares on Elm Street; sometimes there are amazing beards! We met Tommy a few months back at The Elm bar on East Colfax and Elm and we were immediately amazed by his fantastic handle bar mustache and beard combination. Tommy first started growing facial hair when he was 16 back in his home state of Wisconsin because he found an ID that said he was 23, so he figured he needed a little facial-hair power to back up that ID (smart thinking!) Tommy’s been in Denver over nine years, but is still an official shareholder of the Green Bay Packers, and his nickname back in Wisconsin is Weird Beard. When asked how that name came about, he told us he used to have a huge goatee and he would always eat chicken wings, which prompted a friend to say on one occasion that he had chicken in his Weird Beard (again), and the name stuck (just like that pesky chicken). Tommy’s sweetheart Kelly loves his ‘stache/beard combo, and we can’t blame her, it is pretty fantastic! Thanks Tommy!

Lone Star ‘Stache

A few weeks ago, Beards of Denver ventured down to Dallas, Texas.  When not searching for Willie Nelson and admitting that, yes, everything is bigger in Texas, we were fortunate enough to enjoy some whiskies while a country band played at Adair's Saloon in Dallas, and lucky enough to encounter our latest Guest 'Stache: Rhett. Rhett, who's had his 'stache in this amazing condition for the past three years or so is Fort Worth born and raised and now lived in Texas, but interestingly enough, had a Colorado connection of a friend's band touring in Denver the same weekend we met him; we thus loved he and his stellar 'stache even more. Rhett originally decided to grow out his 'stache to battle a buddy who was also growing out his beard, and he had--he said, regretabbly--recently trimmed up his 'stache. A hair stylist by trade, Rhett took extra pride in his 'stache, and we can see why!

We still thought it more than impressive, and weren’t surprised to learn he’s a hair stylist by trade; that ‘stache ain’t from just any amateur. Pleased to meet you, cowboy!

Ill stache

We found this extra special Imperial stache pouring some delicious ESB beer brewed by your very own Denver Beer Co last Sunday night. Nick’s mustache needed to be celebrated, so he’s our honorary guest stache of the month. Nick left the treacherous terrain of Illinois several years back. It was on his journey west that he decided to let the stache do as it pleased, and we thank him for it every day. Nick is currently in the process of becoming even more distinguished; he will soon be a cicerone. Nick, we’re pretty sure you can just show up for the test, give them a peak at your upper lip, and the title is yours. Do yourself a favor, head on over to the DBC, order a beer or seven (and a jumbo pretzel) and let Nick fill your curious brain with all you’ll ever need to know about brews and what mustache wax to buy.
