These days, beards and brews go together like, well, pizza and beer. It seems like just about everybody you meet in the brewing community is sporting a big bushy beard, each more adorably hipster than the next.

At Schlafly, this trend is in full bloom — to the point that the St. Louis-based brewery decided to put out a calendar to commemorate all those glorious whiskers. Its "2016 Beard Calendar" features its staff captured on film by the brewery's own Kate Burrus, with a two-day shoot at the Schlafly Bottleworks.



You can buy a calendar at either the Tap Room or the Bottleworks; they retail for just $15. And if you're not content to ogle some chin candy in the pages of a calendar, we hear that some of these brewmasters will be in attendance at tonight's 25th Annual Burns Night at the Tap Room. Come for the beards; stay for the poetry.

Below, some of our favorite calendar boys.
