Mr Maovember | Best beards and ‘staches at Taihu in Taipei


History repeats! Last year, Dave Gaspar organized the first Mr Maovember contest while at Home Plate Barbecue in Beijing. He’s since moved to Taipei to work for Kentucky Ale, but that didn’t stop him from organizing a Mr Maovember contest there to honor the best beards and ‘staches. The event was held at Taihu Landmark Tasting Room last Wednesday, with categories that ranged from Best Natural Mustache to Best Business Beard. While a final donation total from beer sales and a draw is still to be announced, Gaspar expects it to be around rmb2,500. We’ll have an official update soon!
