Campaigners name top hipster beard locations in the UK
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has named the top locations for hipster beard wearers in the UK after a new year survey.
The campaigners say that while there is no general definition of the hipster beard it is generally distinguished from the ‘other’, the full Brian Blessed organic style beard, by its shaped or designed features.
The survey checked areas of England and Wales for hipster beard density and particularly the following signifiers:
Beard friendly pubs or bottle shops: bars where a higher than usual density of beard wearers is found
Coffee shops: generally independent selling a range of coffees but including some smaller chains
Farmers/Food markets: selling artisan foods from bread to cheese and street food
The top locations
The Lanes, Brighton
King St/Queen Square, Bristol
Northern Quarter, Manchester
Church St, Stoke Newington
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, probably none of the locations have the perfect mix of pubs, coffee shops and markets but we can guarantee that if you find yourself in any of these areas you will find a fine selection of hipster beards
