Our History

Founded by MJ Johnson in April 2011, The Minneapolis Beard & Moustache Club (MBMC) represents, promotes and proliferates the ever growing bearded and mustachioed community of Minneapolis, MN and the surrounding area. Inspired after the 2011 Come and Shave It competition hosted by the Austin Facial Hair Club, MJ really wanted to build a team of diverse facial hair competitors to tour the United States and the world in pursuit of whisker greatness.  MJ established The MBMC with the intent to assemble other local facial hair enthusiasts and record a modern history of facial hair in Minneapolis and beyond.
