I'm sorry to disappoint, but I'm the one with the less impressive beard. My priest is interested in brewing, but I don't know if he'll ever get around to doing it. He's pretty good at drinking it, as he demonstrated at our Oktoberfest party.

Does your priest moonlight as santa clause?

Funny you should mention that--he's talked about maybe doing that one year for a little extra money. He has the build, the reddish face, the jolliness, the whole package.

By the way, the picture was taken Christmas day 2012.

Especially those in the Russian line. It's pretty common in the laity too, though they usually aren't as impressive. I'm Orthodox, a brewer, and a professor, so I guess a beard was in my destiny one way or another.

Now that's an incredible beard! That's what I want to look like when all the pigment fades from my beard.

Is being in the military an allowable excuse for not having a beard?

no.

1) join SEALs, Army Rangers or Delta Force.
2) get posted to afghanistan
3) volunteer for being embedded with local anti-taliban forces

voila - now you HAVE to grow a beard while serving your country!

sure, it's a few extra steps, but having a beard is worth it. get on that, will ya?
