Manchester Brewery named Beard Friendly Employer of the Year

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that Cloudwater Brewery in Manchester has been named Beard Friendly Employer of the Year.

The Award has moved north after being held by Tottenham’s Beavertown Brewery for a year.

The campaigners say that there is hard evidence that Cloudwater both pays close attention to making sure its beers are beard friendly and also has a diverse workforce including some who are hirsute.

The campaigners focused again this year particularly on ‘craft’ brewers because of the link with beards which has become something of a stereotype but is nevertheless soundly reality based.

Past winners of the accolade in recent times have ranged from the Church of England to the Independent newspaper.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we think Cloudwater is a positive model for the beard friendly employer. The combination of craft beer and beards, while not essential does send an important message of beard friendliness
