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!

Military Grade Beard

When one thinks indie rock and beards in the same vein, a hipster-esque beard may first come to mind, but at the recent Phosphorescent show at the Hi-Dive in Denver, we met Sean and he proved that men with incredibly burly beards also love the alt-rock. Sean’s a recent transplant to the Denver area from Reno, arriving just over a year ago. When he got out of the Marines he decided to go three months without shaving—and his current beard has surpassed the seven month mark—and we certainly hope his beard makes it a full year! When asked what his family thinks of his beard, he says his dad (who is also a former Marine) is somewhat skeptical; obviously we need to send him this amazing photo to prove to him how fantastic Sean’s beard really is! Sean—who’s currently single, ladies—said his ex wasn’t a huge fan of his beard, which we can’t fully comprehend; we will happily admire such beard genius!

Obviously, his beard is the bomb; Prince even approves!

Veteran Beardee

Beards of Denver fans, meet JJ, a veteran beardee who has been growing his beard for 30, yes 30, years. Every year JJ dons his beard from October 1st through April 1st, and then on April 1st gets his one hair cut a year. A carpenter by trade and whiskey connoisseur by hobby, we certainly can't wait to see the progress his beard has made in April. Cheers JJ!
