Quest for all Beards

One man will destroy the sad reality of beard stereotyping by cultivating every type of beard known to mankind.

Since 1998, John Dyer has been growing beards each winter. But his obsession has rapidly grown into a thick, fuzzy addiction. Mr. Dyer has amassed a wide, bristly swath of furry arrangements-24 of the coveted 34 possible beard configurations.

He has dedicated much of his personal blog to posts about how to grow a beard, beard folklore and MaBeGroMo, a beard-growing marathon that he declares during the month of December.
