As I've become sucked into the world of homebrewing over the last year or so, I've noticed that Homebrewers seem to be more likely to have a beard then non-homebrewers.

What scares me is that I started to grow a beard at about the same time I started homebrewing.

Can we test the stereotype? If a relationship between these facts exists, does anyone care to speculate as to why?

Beard/moustache acts in three ways:
1) A filter of hops and trub as the beer enters the mouth;
2) A beer storage device, for later consumption; and
3) A cleaning device/mop, for wiping up spilled (God forbid!) beer. This relates to 2)

4. A yeast storage device for later cultivation.

One of my other hobbies is cichlid aquarium fish.. my god if you ever go to a fish auction I swear 70% of blokes have "box" goatee-moustashe beards - think of the aussie cricketers in the damian Flemming era ( last ashes series). It's amazing. they all have big guts and bored women hanging off their shoulder too.

Beard Moustache for the past 25 years. Brewing Kit beers for 20 years just recently graduated to all grain and I swear by the great brewing god my beard like me has taken on a new lease of life. Is this just a coincidence or the mellowing effect of all grain beer.
Oh well time for another pint.
Cheers Altstart

Those who have been to the UK will undoubtably have noticed that this is also true of CAMRA members.

So the connection must be to an appreciation of good beer, rather than to making it.

I just hope that no-one is offended when I say that moustaches are gay.

Takes a special bloke to carry off a mo'...someone like Merv Huuuuughes, or Chopper.

Most CAMRA members I have met also:

1) Smoke a pipe
2) Knit their own sandals

BTW, I only have a fanny tickler.

I already have the long, moppy hair and big sideburns. If I grow a moustache I'll be obliged to act in corny 70's porn movies.
