FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Rogue Brewmaster John “The Beard” Maier announced today he has appointed a doppelgänger to assist him in the growing demand for public appearances.
The eight-inch tall icon bears a striking resemblance to the Beard, and like the Beard is follicularly well endowed.
The Beard icon was the surprise hit of the Great American Beer Festival held recently in Denver, where he made new friends and reacquainted himself with familiar faces.
Since GABF, the icon has been spotted in Germany and Belguim. Photos of his travels will be posted here as they become available.
