Beard Team USA 2011 Championship Documentary

Beard Team USA was an amazing inspiration for Bro Council's first full length documentary. In honor of our fan-base of beards, we decided to re-post the video that kick-started our dedication to bearding at Bro Council.

The Background

Back in 2011, Bro Council visited Lancaster, PA to check out the Beard Team USA National Championships. Two of Bro Council's own, Ray (myself) and guest judge Justin Hartwig, went behind the scenes for a look at this awesome Bro Council Approved event. People came from around the US (and the world) to be judged in 5 categories:

  1. Moustache
  2. Partial Beard
  3. Full Beard Groomed
  4. Full Beard Natural
  5. Freestyle.

In addition to Justin, the judges for the event were Miss Pennsylvania Juliann Sheldon, Roller Derby Star Josie Cuervo, Phil Thiel from America's National Rugby Team, and bearding legend Willi Chevalier from Germany. If you don't know who Willi is just take look at this picture:

Look close in the video and you'll even see several of our Beards of the Month. So, without further ado - relive the first ever full length Bro Council Documentary below. Enjoy!
