Rick and Michael Mast
7.3 x 2


In the grand scheme of things, a beard is pretty tough to beat. Brother beards are like an earthquake wrapped in a hurricane nestled in a box of tsunamis.

Rick and Michael Mast, proprietors of Mast Brothers Chocolate, have a pair of natural-disaster strength beards. The brothers Mast practice parity in a conventional approach to their respective plumage, but the subtle aesthetics are commendable.

Michael Mast (above left) dons an appropriately chocolate brown beard at a medium length. Rick Mast’s beard is rich with crimson hues and is gradually longer at the chin. The beards’ charmingly rugged mien conjure up implications of great craftsmanship. Neither is favored more than the other, but a complimentary balance is struck.

These pilose brothers can be found haunting the fuzzy streets of Williamsburg.

I think it's time to review Alan Moore's beard: http://tinyurl.com/b7vlnd

Also, looking forward to your NYCBMC coverage.

Moore has already been covered. Bummer, too… relevance is through the roof right now.
