The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it is once again running a snap poll on the most Beard Friendly Pie as part of British Pie Week.

The hirsute campaign group say that as with many prepared foods the requirements of people with beards are often overlooked when it comes to pies.

The BLF says that common issues with pies for those with beards are:

Excessive gravy

Puff or flaky pastry which ends up in the beard not the mouth

‘Deep filling’ making it difficult to avoid contact of the pie with the beard

The campaigners cite some types of the traditional steak and kidney pie as an example of pies which are made without thought for the requirements of the hirsute pie consumer. Such pies often have excessive gravy- and comparatively little steak and kidney- which ends up in the beard

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said we continue to pursue the ultimate beard friendly pie. The pie that has excellent pastry, a superb filling but at the same time is also beard friendly. Flaky pastry is ruled out and so are pies with more gravy than filling. We’ve focused on some of the more common pies available in supermarkets and chippies but of course there is a huge variety and the poll has a ‘write in’ answer.

The poll closes at midnight on March 12th with the result announced at midday on March 13th
