Love At First Sight

This is Will and he has a mighty beard... as you can see! 
I wanted him to enter my Beerdfest but he had to work a late shift and was a no show...
His loss, I reckon he coulda been a contender!!! haha 
He promises to come next year to try and take the title from Jim, 
which should make for a interesting challenge! 
I am a little bit in love with this beard... sorry Will ;) 

Cheeky Tash

I papped this cheeky tashed fella in Liverpool on North John Street just before Beerdfest 
and begged him to participate!! 
alas he was only doing 'Movember' and was shaving it off in a blaze of glory on Nov 30th 
- so pretty lucky to have snapped him! 
What a work of art! 
I take umbridge with Movember.. yes you read correctly - I used the word umbridge! haha 
(2013 is a year for fancy words #fact) 
What peeves me is all these guys grow great tashes... and then 'the rules' state they must shave them off on Nov 30th?? Why??? I cannot get behind that! 
Sure have an optional shaving off party or two but don't 'enforce' tash removal - they are a thing of effort and beauty gone in a second of an electric razor... it's just not right... 
just as a puppy is not just for Christmas I feel a great tash is not just for Movemeber... 
ah well, at least we can enjoy this one forever frozen in time, 
caught before the clean shave on Nov 28th haha...

Winning Beard

Here they are - my bearded finalists (L-R Drew, Nick, Sam, me, Ian and winner Jim)

Thanks so much to everyone who helped Beerdfest become not only a reality but a storming success with many request for Beerdfest 2013!!!

When I first decided it would be fun to have Liverpool's first Beard and Moustache Contest I had no idea over 100 people would join me! Incredible! and frickn MARVELLOUS!

The world is a nicer place because of Beerdfest... see a local Bay TV report on the evening here
