Two Gingers

Occasionally, the ladies of Beards of Denver spread their wings and head out on a beard hunt in foreign lands.  Back in September, adventures took the ladies of B of D to a far off land called St. Augustine, Florida, for the Gentleman of the Road tour, to see, Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Justin Townes Earle, & many other fabulous musicians. With an event dubbed "Gentleman of the Road" you may not be surprised to read there were a plethora of bearded concert-goers, including Ross, pictured here with Stephanie, a dear friend of the Ladies of B of D. And since gingerbeards are particularly close to our hearts, we couldn't resist posting these two gingers together!  Ross, who hails from the panhandle of Florida, has been growing his red-bearded mane for nearly a year. A Certified Public Account, for Warren Averett, he dedicated much of his Christmas break in 2012 to the beginnings of his beard, and we can't think of a better holiday gift to the world than more gingerbeards.  Ross' lovely wife Anne wasn't a fan of his beard initially but now has fully gotten on board to support his beard. If they could drive six hours for a weekend of music, we have no doubt his dedication to his beard will last for several years into the future. Thanks Ross! We like Florida more now.

Occasionally, the ladies of Beards of Denver spread their wings and head out on a beard hunt in foreign lands. In September, adventures took the ladies of B of D away from our haven of landlocked mountain majesty to the ocean-enveloped locale dubbed St. Augustine, Florida to attend the Gentleman of the Road music tour and see Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Justin Townes Earle, & many other fabulous musicians perform. With an event dubbed “Gentleman of the Road” you may not be surprised to learn there were a plethora of bearded concert-goers, including Ross, pictured here with Stephanie, a dear friend of the Ladies of B of D. And since both gingerbeards and true gingers are particularly close to our hearts here at Beards of Denver, we couldn’t resist posting these two firery redheads together! Ross, who hails from the panhandle of Florida, has been growing his red-bearded mane for nearly a year. A Certified Public Account for Warren Averett, he dedicated much of his Christmas break in 2012 to the beginnings of his beard, and we can’t think of a better holiday gift to the world than an increase in the number of gingerbeards. Luckily for the universe, Ross’ place of employment welcomed his beard with open arms when he returned to work after the holiday season. Ross’ lovely wife Brianne wasn’t a fan of his beard initially but now has fully gotten on board to support his beard. If Ross and Anne could drive six hours for a weekend of music, we have no doubt Ross’ beard dedication will last for several years into the future. Thanks Ross! We like Florida more now.

‘Ol St. Rick

When you combine a great long beard, a love of craft beers, and a resemblance to Santa Claus, who do you get? Rick, who was born, raised, and has lived in south Denver most of his life, that’s who. We were tipped off about Rick (who’s had some sort of facial hair since high school, when he got in trouble for having a mustache), and his amazing beard by his fantastic wife, Terri. We love the stellar shape of Rick’s beard, but not as much as Terri, who claims it makes a great “handle” to pull him in close for a kiss!  Terri told us that young kids are always staring at Rick and his beard; her theory is that they may think he’s Santa, and he humors them by giving his beard a quick flip to make them smile—of course he’s a people pleaser; with that great beard, how could he not be? Terri said it’s easily been 12 years since she’s seen him clean shaven. Like many other amazing Beards of Denver, both Rick and Terri love visiting breweries—they’ve been to 149—yes, 149!—thus far, with Copper Kettle Brewing Company being their favorite (and also one of our favorites). Keep up that great beard growth, and beer sampling, Rick!

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!

That’s One Sweets’ Beard

We met Sweets also last week at Goosetown Tavern where he was slinging drinks and putting up with the rowdy and raucous bingo crowd. Sweets is a Denverite through and through and has been growing his beard for about two and a half years; it was three inches longer until recently but his beard was getting too long and so he was forced to scale it back some. His fiance is in favor of his beard, and we definitely have to agree with her good taste. Sweets plays up his beard in costume as well, as he was a Viking this year for Halloween, which seems a very fitting choice. Make sure to stop by Goosetown soon, have a drink, play some bingo, and admire Sweets awesome beard!

Gobble Gobble

In wouldn’t truly be Thanksgiving without a Thanksgiving beard for you all! We ran into Scott and his great Turkey-Day beard at the Turkey Trot in Denver Thanksgiving morning. He’s rockin’ that turkey headdress, those wayfarer glasses, and that beard like nobody’s business; we’d share some cranberry sauce and stuffing with him not only on Thanksgiving, but on any day of the year.
