Where else might you encounter a genius beard then in the Apple Store in Cherry Creek? That’s where we met Johnny and his impressive beard this week. Johnny, who participated in Movember, which kicked off his beard’s life-cycle, said he often has a beard and plans to keep it at least until the Spring Equinox. Originally from Lakeland, Florida he’s lived in Denver the past three and a half years. He says everyone loves his beard–except his sweetheart–who gives it the thumbs down and wants it gone; we think she’ll come around to his beard’s awesomeness though! I mean, if almost everyone loves it AND it keeps his face warm, it’s so multi-functional. We think that, in itself, is genius.
We were lucky enough to run into Ryan at the Irish Rover a few weeks ago, and Ryan is quite possibly the happiest beard we have met to date! Ryan has had his fantastic beard since Mid-October and credits its stellar growth to multiple factors: laziness, never straight razor shaving, participating in No Shave November, desiring winter warmth, and growing it to support his two favorite football teams–the Packers and Broncos–in their playoff pursuits (sadly, no dice for either team this year, but that is certainly no fault of Ryan’s kick-ass beard). Ryan has lived in Idaho Springs for just over a year, and used to live in Denver; before that he spent 24 years in Flagstaff, AZ. We’re certainly glad he’s come to call Colorado home! Ryan, who’s single, said most of the ladies like the beard, and with his high quality beard he likely won’t be on the market for long!
