We would like to take a moment to thank everyone once again for your support of the 2016 Great American Beard and Moustache Championships in September.  We had over 220 competitors, representing more that 40 Clubs across the continent.


We are so excited and proud to finally announce, that with everyone who was there in person, in spirit, and following online over the weekend, that together we raised $16,000.00 for our charities, Fisher House Foundation (both nationally and locally), and Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance Assistance. 

A huge thanks goes out to our title sponsor Remington For Men BeardBoss, and everyone else who helped make it happen! 

Without the kind donations and support of our sponsors, the guidance from the officers of The Alliance - NACBMA, and the help of our members in the Boulder Facial Hair Club and Rocky Mountain Beard and Moustache Club, we would not have been able to pull this off. 


Finally, we are so grateful for the support of every competitor, spectator, participating club, and of course, all of the volunteers who tirelessly contributed to the enormous success of this inaugural event!


We are very excited for the future of the Great American Beard and Moustache Championship; a charity Championship for the clubs, by the clubs.

Make sure you follow both the The Alliance - NACBMA page and the RVA Beard League page for details on the upcoming 2018 GABMC event.

To kick off the festivities, we hosted the first ever Colorado Craft Beerd Festival as our Friday pre-party.


A special thanks to all the breweries that contributed their beer and staff and to Stoney's for the generous use of your space.

We're all fans of supporting our local brewing community in their tasting rooms, and we were thrilled to bring a few of our favorites together for this momentous event.

Cheers to these fine purveyors of tasty libations!
