Do a 'comb over' from the chest.

To answer the OP, cause I'm not going to read all the posts before. Hell NO!! I have a beard, now with grey hairs sprouting all over the place and a bald head. I compensate for my lack of ability to grow hair on top by growing it in the facial region. But I have a PhD, and work in education, so no one can tell me to shave or not!! I keep growing it longer and longer in the hope that someone will think I am a vagabond or biker when I come to teach. Then I can laugh at then and say "no I'm your professor and this is how I roll!" Deal with it!

I actually have a fake beard I wear on brew days. Also for hydro tests and starters, although not for mechanical stuff like kegging. I got the idea when I was in an occult store in London and found hair clippings from when Alastair Crowley shaved his head and a potpourri of beard trimmings from some of the brewers around Burton-on-Trent.

I think it was my brew-beard that allowed me to win gold at GABF with my first ever brew, an all-extract mild. Tried brewing without it once--ghastly! *shudders*. Never again.

Plus, it gets my wife all turned on!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I've never brewed without a beard. With the frequency of my shaving, the likelihood of a clean-shaven day coinciding with a brew day are quite slim. I grew my first full beard at sixteen (goatee at fifteen, hirsute genes) and I've hardly seen my jawline since, so I can't speak authoritatively on what brewing is like without a beard. I sure wouldn't want to try it. Those who brew well without must have a strong inner-beard.

A goodly number of us are bearded, and if the Youtube videos are indicative, are also shoeless !

Here's a pic. I can't find anything more recent. It's from October, so my beard has grown considerably since then, but you get the idea. Probably harbouring some wild yeast.

Yes! This is what we need - more pictures of good brewer beards. Gentlemen... (or ladies, if you've got 'em)
