London Beard Week in full bloom as Great British Beer Festival sees biggest concentration of beards in the Capital

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that London Beard Week which runs until 11th August is in full bloom as the biggest concentration of the hirsute seen in the Capital during the year is to be found at the Campaign for Real Ale’s Great British Beer Festival at Olympia.

The week is a celebration of London, now one of the most beard friendly Capital cities in the world, and of London’s great hirsute heritage from Charles Dickens to Karl Marx.

It coincides with CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival at Olympia and the wider London Beer City events because the campaigners say that a rise in the interest of craft beer in London, there are now over 100 breweries within the M25, has also led to a massive increase in beard wearing.

As part of the week the BLF is running a poll to find the most impactful and impressive figure with a beard who is associated with London.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, of course the world of beer is a diverse one and there are lots of people without beards at Olympia. At the same time the beer festival does mark probably the most significant gathering of beards in the Capital during the year.
