Official WBMC Welcome Party

  • Draught House Pub & Brewery 4112 Medical Parkway Austin, TX, 78756 United States (map)

The official Welcome Party, Meet and Greet, and 12 month Beard Sprint competition all-in-one night! 

Every year AFHC holds a shave party (we know don't shave) at a local bar in East Austin and competitors line up to prove who can grow the gnarliest beard for our annual Come and Shave It. The gnarliest of the 6 month sprinters will be crowned. Since we are hosting worlds we thought we'd give these gents a full year to grow and show.

Beard Sprint Competition



Meet your fellow travelers from 30 countries, enjoy the tranquil and fermented ambiance of one of Austin's most revered drinking institutions.
