I've been growing mine for about 10 months now. I'm honestly a little surprised that my 8 month old son hasn't ripped it all off my face yet.

I trimmed my beard into a goatee because it was patchy and not filling in evenly. I went out to check on a keg of IPA that I kegged on Monday night. The keg had a leak somewhere and I lost a full 20 lb bottle of CO2. Lesson learned, offend the Beer Gods at your own peril.

You gotta wait it out. It will get fuller.

A hair net might have to be worn, but it could upset the beer gods!

The beard helps brewing for two reasons:

A beard really helps in beer clarity. Filters as you take each sip.

A beard acts as a randalizer, adding flavors to each sip.

Eff, I cut my hair this morning and looked too ridiculous for even my standards, decided I needed a trim. Is my beer ruined?
