We met Matthew in a San Diego bar of all places. What are the odds we’d be in a bar?

Where are you from? 
I’m from Lawrence, Kansas. I lived in Huntington Beach for the last year, but I work from home so I just decided to move down here.

What do you do?
I’m a pharmacist for the Veteran’s hospital.

How long have you been growing your beard? 
Since October. This is as long as it’s ever been. I tore my achilles and I was just really down on life. Since I wasn’t going to work I just let it grow.

What’s your biggest Beard Growing Achievement?
It’s long enough now that I can do it in different styles and shapes, rounded or like a football. And, I never thought I’d get so many compliments from Dudes.



As a random bearded man Mathew received one of our sweet
“Beer For Glory” koozies!
