Very few women can grow copious quantities of facial hair, and, in general, those who can choose to remove it. However, brewing is a strong beard-attractant, and bearded gentleman-specimens can be spotted flocking around brew days, even if they are not brewing themselves, and at social events where the home brewed beer is being consumed, in larger proportions than one would expect with the general population.

Its a quantum physics thing and as long as no one observes you without the beard, there is still some inherent probability that you have one.

So be secretive or be bearded.

Is that like, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"... Instead "If a person boils and ferments wort and does not have a beard, is it actually beer?"

Shaved head and no facial hair, save for the two-days' growth as I brew on the weekend. My beer is coveted by those around me. I do fine without and don't plan on changing a thing.

You need to have some sort of facial hair to make beer. Well.....unless your a girl person like Yooper or something. I guess I can make an exception for that.

This has never occurred to me....having facial hair remarkably like Doc Holliday from Tombstone, I reckon that's good enough.
