Well rogue brewery has a beer made with a yeast they found living in their master brewers beard.

I grew mine out for "No shave November" in memory of my mother who passed from pancreatic cancer. Wasn' a fan of the beard so midnight on last day of Nov I shaved back to the goatee.

The goatee is getting pretty long though so I consider it my mini beard.

I respect the goatee and you honoring your mother. I lost mine to breast cancer.

Well, I do live in Portland... Welp, time to grow that soul patch and brew nothing but all organic PBR clones. 'Cause buying it at the store is too mainstream.

Guys, I'm 60 years old and have white hair. Does this still work? The last time I grew a beard the cute females looking at me dreamily were about 3 years old.

This has been a thoroughly researched topic for many decades. While some call it a hazard, others...an opportunity.
