I think that I am getting inspiration to do a Barbarossa German Alt.

Every year Keisel shaves "The Beard" for charity. Pretty good guy from what I understand!

Anyway, true story-- I grew a beard and won a prize at a local home brew competition. So that's got to mean something!

I really want to grow a beard now. I only get weekly stubble before I have to shave for work. Hahah. Sad face.

Do it. SWMBO isn't a big fan but if she kicks me out onto the couch, I am that much closer to the beer fridge :cheers:

hell, the only hair I can grow on my face is on my chin. I always hear, "You're lucky you don't have to shave all the time." but what I really hear is, "When are you gonna hit puberty?" I'm thirty-effing-three! damn my dad's genes.

My brewing career has only existed in the presence of my beard so I can't say. I can tell you that the 2-3 times in the last 10 years that I shaved it, I regretted it and grew it back as quickly as possible (it only takes me a week to get some decent coverage thank goodness).

My wife hated it when I first grew one but now if I shave it she says "Grow it back..."

Curse genes for bestowing this beardless face upon me... Now I will never be able to master homebrewing.

A goatee is fine. Stubble will work a little.

Just don't grow a soul patch. That'll make your beer worse.

Actually, you should propbably move to the wine forum if you're going to do that.

I think a soul patch is shown to add the flavor "hipster" to your brew.

Its a mixture of essence of axe body spray, hemp, and corduroy.

So does the length or style of beard impact your brewing? Will a ZZ Top style beard make your beer that much better or is just the existence of a beard that brings favor from the beer gods?
