Unwritten rule for Pro Brewers
« on: December 06, 2011, 08:10:55 PM »
Is there some unwritten rule for pro brewers that they have to sport facial hair?  Just seems that most do.  I've stopped shaving just in case.

Have you been to NHC before?  Seems like 90+% of the men have facial hair.  I think it has to do with brewing in general.

I see what you mean, although I would guess it's closer to 75%

Pro brewers don't have enough time in day to shave and can't afford razors anyway.

That's because they're posting in the AHA forum all day.  ;D
