Beard-liner!

If you have followed Beards of Denver for a bit, or if you are familiar with either beard or beer culture, you now know well that there is often a direct correlation between a bomb-ass beard and an excellent craft beer. Based on that cardinal knowledge, you won’t be surprised that we met Tony Drewry (left, pictured here with Will Golden, Head Brewer at Austin Beerworks in Austin, TX) at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver in October.  Tony, who is an independent craft beer consultant across the state of Texas, was visiting our fair city for GABF from his home in Fort Worth, Texas.  His beard is just over three years old, but he’s had some iteration of facial hair for all of his adult life, including goatees, mustaches, chops, but we must say we favor his beard.  Tony hails from a long line of Baptists and moonshiners, which we hear are both huge appreciators of the beard.  All of Tony’s sweethearts have appreciated his beard, and he assured us “Hell, even my mama digs it.” To care for those precious locks, Tony washes, conditions, brushes, and even applies a bit of Kieh’s Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil for good measure.  Even with all this primping, occasionally he does experience “bed beard” (think bed head, but on your face), but when it gets that wild he’s able to braid it to keep it in check. Regardless, it always smells fabulous (we have no doubt).  When asked if strangers fondle his beard without his permission, Tony said he does occasionally get confused with other men who are part of the bearded brethren brotherhood, and he even has a name for these folks: “Beardists” (no comment as to whether the Beards of Denver ladies would qualify for this label, but we’ll take it as a compliment if so).  Tony stressed that Beardism is “not a laughing matter” and has noticed over the years that a big, beautiful beard does seem to fascinate a huge spectrum of the populace and garners loads of, mostly humorous, comments, though he did say if he ever hears another “Duck Dynasty” reference “It will be too soon.” Tony’s family, on the whole, loves his beard. His 10-year-old daughter dictates his facial hair growth and her most recent instruction was for him to grow his beard to his waist (we can’t wait for the progress report on that)! One of his nephews once wore a fake beard to Tony’s birthday party, and his very young nephews and nieces find solace and comfort in his beard.  Tony’s favorite story about his beard is when his nephew Parker was three years old, he asked Tony how he grew his beard, and Tony told him, “Kid, I get up every morning, look at myself in the mirror and let out a seriously manly grunt.” About a week later, Tony received a text from my sister that read, "Well, I hope you're happy. Parker was trying to grow his beard this morning and shit his pants,” Tony told us “I laugh every time I tell that story.” Besides growing an awesome beard, Tony is also the Co-Founder/Art Director at lemonjuice.us. He works with the Texas Tavern League and is the co-pilot of The Beerliner (which we were lucky enough to experience). Tony also sings and plays banjo/guitar/jug/kazoo in the band Shotgun Friday, which plays hill hop music and is the official unofficial band of Texas Craft Beer.  We’ll be sure to try and catch them next time we’re in the Lone-Star state!  Tony put it best when he told us that truly, “Beards make the world a better place.” We couldn’t agree more.

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.

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!

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.

True Yeard Achievement (From Afghanistan!)

Beards of Denver fans, we bring you today a Denver dude who has stayed true to the beard tradition even being literally thousands of miles away: meet Preston, who has been living in Afghanistan since January 2013.  Preston contacted B of D from the base of the northern Afghanistan mountains (through the power of the mighty Facebook) and we are ever-so-glad he did. Preston is a true beard-liever, as even the summer heat of Afghanistan was no match for he and his beard; it stayed all summer, and he even proudly stated, “If I won't shave my  beard for a girl, Afghanistan stands no chance.”  Preston is a fairly recent Denver transplant, moving to the Five Points neighborhood of our wonderful city in November 2012, and if all goes as planned he will be back in town shortly after the new year.  Preston relocated to Denver for many fantastic reasons, including the abundance of sunshine allowing for long motorcycle rides with his beard blowing in the wind, as well as the many options for skiing and riding: this beard does them both!  Having formerly served in the Air Force for six years, Preston now flies UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) for a company and this allows him to live, and grow his beard, where he chooses.  He can’t wait to come back home to Denver and enjoy the craft beer, mountain biking, camping, and of course, get many more compliments on that gorgeous beard.  The photo featuring Preston’s and his beard documents his recent “YEARD” achievement: the first time he has ever let his beard grow a full year!  We could not be prouder, and approve of that cigar of celebration.  Take care Preston and can’t wait to admire that beard in person when you’re back in D-Town!

British Beard

It’s not everyday you meet a stand-up beard who also plays the stand-up bass, but the ladies of Beards of Denver were in the right spot at the right time on a recent fine, fall evening to meet Max and admire his ginger-bearded fantasticness. Max, a musician from London, England, currently plays bass and stand-up bass in Tom Odell’s band, and we were lucky enough to hang with Max and his bandmates (curly-haired Max, Matt, and Tom) at Goosetown Tavern after their show at The Bluebird in Denver. Max has been growing his beard for the past three years, and is a firm believer his face looks better bearded. We agree, though his mom isn’t in our same camp, as she wishes he would shave so she can more freely admire his handsome face. Max’s sweetheart, Ann-Marie, is on our side, though, as she is adamantly against Max shaving, and Max loves her the more for it, claiming “She’s the sweetest girl in the world and puts up with me quite a lot.” Such sweet words from such an amazing beard aren’t that surprising, but we imagine Max is a bit easier to put up with while sporting his impressive beard. Luckily, the life of a touring musician seems quite appropriate to continue his bearded-mastery. Look for Max, his beard, and his bandmates on Leno soon, and follow him on Twitter @max_goff for beard and other sure-to-be-intriguing updates. Cheers Max! We’ll happily tip some scotch and fireball back with you anytime you’re back in our lovely Denver.

Not Your Avs-erage Beard

As fans of Beards of Denver may not be surprised to learn, Red Rocks is one of the meccas of spotting epic beards. But when we saw Sean tailgating before the Avett Brothers show recently, we knew we'd spotted a bearded diamond in the rough. Sean, who lives in Colorado Springs and is a tattoo artist at Nostalgia Tattoo Co. there, not only can obviously grow an impressive beard, he has used his stunning handsomeness to his advantage, trying out to be a beard model in Bend, Oregon after he had heard about European Beard Models (that sounds like a trip we need to take!) Sean, who's a huge Colorado Avalanche fan, told us he and many others specifically will grow out their beards when the Stanley Cup starts, which seems like as good a reason as any for showing off that rad facial hair. When we asked Sean's lovely sweetheart Mandy if she was a fan of his beard, she noted she couldn't imagine him without it, since he's had it the entire three years of their courtship. She did say though that sometimes she grabs his beard at night instead of a blanket, which really seems like a better thing to nuzzle up in anyway! Also, apparently Sean and Mandy's cats aren't afraid to nuzzle right up in all that bearded-fierce-fantasticness, either! Obviously, they recognize. Thanks Sean! Keep up that great beard work.

A Beard of Mystery

Occasionally, the Ladies of Beards of Denver go on a hunting expedition with a bit too much whiskey and sass (well, let's be honest, the sass is always present). On those said occasions, we may not take the best notes...which is why this amazing beard is so mysterious, because from our detailed iPhone notes, we are not sure is he is Jesse or Seamus, but really, what does it matter because LOOK AT HIS BEARD!!! (yes, Jesse/Seamus' beard warrants three exclamation points).  We met him at the third night of Lucero performances at the Bluebird, and he lives in the City Park 'hood and has resided in Denver the past six years, before that hailing from Albany, New York. Jesse/Seamus said he's a retired bartender and loves to hang out.  With his amazing beard we imagine he has tons of takers!

Lucero Luck

When you go to see a kick-ass alt-country band like Lucero, the odds are stacked pretty heavily in your favor that you're going to encounter some kick-ass bearded men. But our Beards of Denver hopes were significantly exceeded when we happened upon Jeremy and his amazing beard at the Bluebird in Denver a few months ago. Jeremy, who, when he's not growing his amazing beard, is the GM at Hodi's Half Note in Fort Collins, said he's had his beard something like six to seven years (certainly nothing to sneeze at). His delightful wife, Brandi, loves his bear but Jeremy himself has a love/hate relationship with it because, as he described it best "It's like a pregnant belly"; everyone wants to touch a bit of that beard. I know we were impressed! Keep up the great growth, Jeremy!

Broken Bones lead to Bad Ass Beards

Here at Beards of Denver, we love Opening Day Baseball more than we love bacon (I know, that’ll come as a shock) and ALMOST more than we love beards. That’s why we were especially delighted to meet Walker after the Colorado Rockies Opening Day victory a few weeks ago. Hanging out in the back patio area of Scruffy Murhpys, we couldn’t help admire Walker’s amaze-balls red beard and Mohawk to boot. Walker, who works at Beatport (essentially the iTunes for DJs—get on over if you haven’t heard of it, and if you haven’t, srsly, where ya been?) and broke his femur in August playing some hacky-sack outside of work. While in the hospital he couldn’t shave (or didn’t feel up to it) and grew out his beard.  Get this, beard lovers: he NEVER HAD ONE BEFORE. We were, of course, aghast, because just LOOK at it!? Walker and his fabulous girlfriend Zhawna are Denver natives, and she’s encouraging him to keep the beard at least a year (we say, go for eternity). At any rate, pretty much no better way to wrap up an already awesome Rockies Opening Day!
