This is Wally (just don't use his Sunday name) of Melbourne, Australia who brought his fine beard to Liverpool for the Soundcity music festival a few weeks ago...
Not oft does a beard stop me in my mostly determined tracks, but I knew I had to befriend this gentleman!
Wally manages an Aussie rock outfit by the name of Money For Rope and is a music maker himself. Dude.

This is Mark of lovely Liverpool being creative with his facial fuzz... He missed out at last year's Beerdfest but promises to make a big impression on the judges come September this year... It's exactly this sort of creativity that will win you prizes (and much respect) at my beard and moustache fest, especially in the Freestyle category... Must mention that Mark sent a friend to compete - not in his place, but to 'represent' as the yoof say... and his pal walked off with Best partial so clearly it's his destiny to be a winner himself... we will find out in September!
If you have a picture in this genre do share with us here or on our Facebook page... and we're on Twitter too @beerdfestlpool
In other fest news - a group of bearded gents contacted me from across the Irish Sea, said they want to make our contest their first overseas trip! I am honoured and encourage all beards from the world beyond our Scouse borders to come, drink and be bearded with us ^_^

This is Michael O'Brien and his winning moves at Beerdfest last night... I am sure it took everyone by surprise that he beat the HUGE length brought by our No.2 Runner-up Michael Legge but you see there was just one point in it and Crowd Pleaser was part of the make-up on the score sheet... this cheeky little tinker took to our catwalk and then posed for a #selfie!!! Priceless! And the extra point to take the title for this year... so remember boys, size ISN'T everything after all ;)
And a special video acceptance speech from Brian Blessed too? Oh me oh my as the cool kids say around here ;) What a gent to accept his Lifetime Achievement Award in such great spirits... (if I can figure out how to share this I will do asap! haha #techphobe)
Thanks to all who came along to compete, to watch, to help make it go so smoothly! I for one am exhausted but thankyou thankyou thankyou for such an awesome night, I may have recovered just in time to do it all again next winter ;)

This is John from Bootle
He was hesitant to let me pap this beard because he says usually the sides are trimmed right down so tis more of an epic goatee style.. but here it is as is, he says it takes him around 6 months and he's been beardy for as long as he can remember...
The Grapes on Roscoe St is not only one of the finest drinking holes in Liverpuddle,
but a rich seam of great beards and general facial furriness!
This is me with a faux moustache posing for the photographer for the local rag #silliness
The Liverpool Echo contacted me after hearing about The Liverbeards and ran this piece about my 'abnormal love of beards' !
Abnormal in whose opinion please? haha never trust a journalist!
I defo never said half the stuff they creatively put in quotations but I always knew it was gonna be a stitch up, why else feature me at all...
Having said that tis fun being in the local paper regardless, imagine being the go-to girl for beardy opinion, that's a #win people haha
