There’s nothing sexier than a dude with beer foam floating on his hairy upper lip – right? Well – if moustaches are your thing, then you already know Movember is your month. Handlebar, porn-stache, chevron or fu-manchu, whatever ticklish addition your boyfriend, co-worker or friends choose to grow, only a few can pull it off like Tom Selleck.* Now, if you like beer, your month is pretty much all year round. But for the beer AND moustache lovers, November has combined the forces of your panty-dropping weaknesses! We love that our favorite local brewery, Granville Island, is supporting both beer and moustache causes by donating 25¢ from each 6 pack and 10¢ from each pint of Lions Winter Ale sold to Prostate Cancer Canada. It’s even a triply fantastic month because this means the Winter Ale is back on store shelves! Not only are they giving us a great reason to drink a great beer, but they’re growing internally as well: “Things are about to get pretty ugly around here,” says Granville Island Brewing’s general manager Walter Cosman. Is a man in your life working extra hard this month to plunder out a heart-stoppingly hairy upper lip for the cause of cancer and our knee-weakening pleasure? Keep an eye out starting November 1st on their FB and Twitter pages where moustaches will be abound and post his or your picture in the spirit of Movember.
