Hipster or Organic: beard style key to CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with the Campaign for Real Ale’s flagship Great British Beer Festival underway at Olympia until Saturday, beard styles are an important element of understanding the event.
According to report in the Financial Times both ‘grey beards and hipster beards’ are to be found at the GBBF.
The campaigners say that both the organic and hipster beard style are equally valid as is not having a beard at all but there is no doubt that the hipster beard is more associated with ‘craft’ beer while the organic beard is more often associated with ‘real ale’
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we back diversity and we really think that, ‘anything goes’ is also the best approach to take to which beard style suits which kind of beer.
