Last April, our Show & Tell blog ran an infographic about beards, and it gave a brief history of beards, and how women found full-bearded dudes to be two-thirds as attractive but 51 percent as cheerful as clean-shaven dudes. But the graphic neglected to address what effect a beard has on a guy's ability to rock. Houses frontman Andy Hamilton recently snipped off one of the most righteous beards in town, and he's now rocking one sweet, sweet 'stache that's equal parts Lorax, Yosemite Sam and Sam Elliott. In honor of this momentous occasion, we present you with the ten best (and sweetest) rock beards in Denver.
