Due to the popularity of John’s Beard another date has been added to the 2012 John’s Beard Tour schedule. John’s Beard will be competing in the 2012 Beard Team USA National Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada – participating in the Natural category. There is no category for beard yeast.
Natural beards are judged on their mass, density, shape, color and overall impression. No aids may be used. Growing a unique strain of beard yeast viable for brewing is not an aid, nor is it part of the judging criteria.
