Depending on the length of your beard, and especially your mustache, enjoying a delicious beverage can become a complicated task. It might not seem like it at first, but most drinks aren’t designed with a beardsman in mind, however, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a cocktail this evening or your favorite cup of coffee in the morning. Yet, variety is the spice of life and in no situation is that more apparent than when it comes to enjoying a delicious beverage.
According to Beardbrand founder Eric Bandholz, the most essential drinks for beardsmen can be broken down to five types or specific concoctions. To start with, there’s beer. Ideally you should try home brewing, but if that’s out than enjoying a local microbrew is definitely the best way to go. Of course, if your favorite local brewery happens to be tapped out then head to the nearest dive bar and order a tall boy. Next we have bourbon and its most famously associated cocktail, the old fashioned. Both should be sipped and savored rather than pounded. Remember, you might still be young at heart, but you’re no longer in college (probably). Of course, if you’re in the mood for something new, we recommend Eric’s very own Sex on the Beard, which is essentially a Sex on the Beach with pineapple juice instead of orange juice. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, we have coffee. Of course, there’s no wrong way to drink coffee, but we all agree that once summer rolls around, cold brew is the way to go.
Beard on everyone.
