Our Top Bearded Stories of 2015

2015 was a huge year for beards. Urban Beardsman Magazine was there to let you know about the good, bad, bad-ass, and even dumb-ass stories regarding all things bearded. As our readership numbers continue to grow (we hit well over ONE MILLION readers this year!), it proves that we aren’t even close to hitting “peak beard” as many other media stories have mentioned this year. The beard is the strongest it has ever been, and 2016 will undoubtedly be another solid year for beardsmen.

Here’s a recap of our top 10 most read stories of 2015:
