Beard Liberation Front


PRESS RELEASE 13th March Keith Flett 07803 167266


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with the end of British Pie Week it has announced the results of its annual poll on the most Beard Friendly Pie.

The traditional macaroni pie most popular in Scotland came top of the poll with butter pie (potato & onion), which is a traditional speciality in north-west England in particular, second

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 outcome of the poll reflects that with traditional pies designed for eating ‘on the go’ easily beat leading pie brands.

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 winners in our poll are not ones with gravy that dribbles in the beard of puff pastry that lodges in it. They are also not ones that large pie manufacturers produce commercially. Perhaps there is food for thought there.
