Who knew that having a beard could score you a National Championship?

I know it sounds like something you could only hope for, right?

The realization is that November 12th at the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper, your beard could do just that.

The 2022 Honest Amish National Beard and Mustache Championship is part of this years Booze & Bacon Fest presented by Martinizing. 

It's serious business, too. These guys put lots of time, effort and energy into having the absolute best beard or mustache in the country.

Ladies, it's been said, if you're looking for a man that will be dedicated to you and work at your relationship...find a man with a beard. It takes patience to grow a solid beard or mustache.

The Honest Amish Beard and Mustache Championship isn't child's play. The beard and mustache industry is huge, organizations like the North American Competitive Beard & Mustache Alliance (NACBMA) and the World Beard and Mustache Association (WBMA) dictate the way the championship classes and categories are laid out and judged.
