Below are the finalists we’ve selected for the Beard Of The Year, please review them and then vote for your favorite at the bottom of the page.


1) The Reddit Resplendent:



This dude is seriously hot. Thanks to Redditor Jarofvegemite. From the comments section:

My beard just got a little scared and part just went back into my face in shame.

Mine is just more ambitious now.


2) The Merman:


A reader asks of this majestic sea creature:

Can it be the next Beard of the Week?

Why yes, yes it can.


3) The Cannabeard:


A reader writes:

Good day in the Evergreen State: legal cannabis went on sale in Bellingham (and across the state in approx 24 stores) this morning at 8 am. The line of customers stretches around the block, and we’re nearly matched by the number of reporters, TV crews and photographers covering the celebration – national media, Canadian, Global TV. TODAY is the real Independence Day – freedom from prohibition, superstition, paranoia, propaganda and the failed War on Drugs!

4) The Reader:


The Dish’s daddy beard from April follows up:

I thought you might enjoy our progress. Thanks!
