    I think it's time to do away with the beards now. A little long in the tooth, IMHO. Ever since I shaved mine off I practically get laughed out of the store when I ask where the Couvee Des Jacobins Rouge is at.

    You should make the next cover of hop pellets resting on his hairy ass-cheek if that's the case. I'm sure that would be talked about plenty.

    The beard hairs are part of the recipe, it's obvious (insert Rogue joke here).

    Yessir! People turned off by this cover photo have obviously never held hops in their hands and taken a big satisfying sniff!

    I'll bite. I don't have any particularly strong opinions on photography, but I'd say I agree with the OP.

    Looks like this month's cover will be more appealing to the BA masses.

    ..I doubt it..That was Dave Mclean from Magnolia Brewery in SF..hung out with him several times and would recognize him anywhere.
    Besides his current brewery expanding and growing, he's getting ready to open a new location and restaurant...so I don't think he's too concerned if you think his nose is too big or not
