No it works the other way. Growing a sick beard improves your brewing.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that the more defined your beard / goatee, the more refined your brewing process will be.

Well. here we have one more. Depending on how bushy the beard was, he might be able to see better what he's doing and thus result in better beer. 2c

Beards attract bacteria and wild yeast and therefore keep them out of your kettle. More beard = better beer. Duh.
