I've never brewed WITHOUT a beard! In fact, I grew the mustache almost 43 years ago. The LAST time I shaved my upper lip was on 9 August 1969! The full beard came about three years later. I was in grad school and just didn't feel like shaving. Ultimately, the full beard got reduced to a goatee. With the goatee and mustache, I don't have to shave over acne scars!

Several years ago, during some lovely weather, my wife and I were walking up to the Starbuck's we visit on Saturday mornings. A gentleman got up from one of the outdoor tables, walked right up to me, stuck out his hand and shook mine and asked me, "How do you get the color of the hair on your head to match the color of your goatee and mustache?" I thought for a moment and responded, "Experience!"

That sucks. My girlfriend probably would never have noticed me if I didn't have a beard.

It was really funny when I had to shave because several girls we knew and some of her coworkers would say things like "Oh, Megan (gf) must love that you finally shaved". I would just nod and smile because my girl HATES that I had to get rid of it.

I think this little ditty about "Beard Lust" fits in perfectly with this thread:

More research is required.
You realize that in all the movies, groucho's moustache was a peice of black electrical tape. Yes?

I heard a story about a local bakery that moved to a new larger bake house. Same ingredients, same recipie, same equipment, same employees. Somehow the bread taste took a nosedive. They even went so far as to collect dust from the top of the rafters in the old bakehouse and spread it around the new building. They ended up abandoning the new bakehouse and returning to the old one. Go figure.

Perhaps wild yeast in the air or something. Water? Interesting.

When I started to read this story, I assumed it would end by revealing that the baker (who was also a homebrewer) had shaved right after the move...

So you are saying I just need to be ugly? I think I can do that.

We need to conduct a blind taste test to compare beers brewed by people with beards versus without. Sounds like the next Basic Brewing Radio and BYO collaborative experiment.

Ed Zachary. And I'm not taking out the earring either.
