Fred Abercrombie (bier gŁt shirt, ugliest dog contest, unnecessary umlaut) is launching a book on craft beer and facial hair called CRAFT BEERDS.

--

KICKSTART IT!
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fredabercrombie/the-craft-beerds-book-a-hairy-collection-of-beer-l

Craft Beerds is a book of beer label art with beards, sideburns and moustaches. Well-groomed & well-photographed from 175+ breweries.
Launched: Aug. 01, 2012
Funding ends: Aug. 26, 2012

WHERE YOUR FUNDS ARE GOING:

Printing. Every single cent. The project grew from something cool that we could afford to self-publish, to something really cool we really need your help on. Really. Turns out, printing an almost 300-page hairy book is kinda expensive.

Weíve already collected, photographed and laid everything out. It looks beautifulóand handsomeóbut it needs your help to live the printed dream.

WHY DOES THIS NEED TO EXIST?

Because no oneís paid a tangible tribute to all the killer art and packaging from the recent craft beer explosion. (Thereís enough to fill a book)
Because itíll give exposure to many breweries you already love and want to succeed further.
Because itíll give exposure to many local, regional breweries you may not even know you love. Yet.
Because weíve broken the book into themed chapters that keep it fresh, every time you pick it upóDevilish Beerds, Royal Beerds, Side-Beerds and of course, Red Beerds, to name a few.
Because craft beer and facial hair are a natural combo. Ever been to a beer fest? You canít swing a growler without grazing a beard.

Kind of sucks living in Europe at times, to fork out the extra $15 for shipping.

But hell, come to think of it, itís one US bomber in the bottle shop or 1Ĺ craft beers from draught at a pub, so Iíll opt to not go out one night and that extra shipping is paid for.

Iím in!

Vitamin B, and thereís a lot of it in beer apparently, is very good for your hair. No wonder the two are related.

The trick is to drink upside-down. (Says the bald man)

Sadly alcohol has the reverse effect on your uptake of vitamins, it is all about balance. Research in Denmark points towards beer being healthier than wine, but only because less alcohol in general will be consumed per volume drunk, 75 cl bottle of beer vs 75 cl bottle of wine will contain less alcohol in the beer bottle than the wine bottle....normally :)

The hair thing, at best a modern myth, likely the reverse here is more likely due to alcohol again affecting many elements in your metabolism negatively.
