The Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard are, first and foremost, a group of facial hair enthusiasts who have banded together in the name of fostering good will, community pride, and mainstream acceptance of beards and moustaches as a personal choice that should not be taken lightly or oppressed.

We are also the founding chapter of Beard Team Ohio.

Formed by three close friends at a booth in a great Mexican restaurant, our club was originally formed with a few simple goals. We wanted an outlet for our passion for great beards and moustaches, of course, but also saw an opportunity to foster optimism in our community and give our native city a niche to be proud of. 

Today, thanks to the dedication of a great few and the enthusiasm of a great many, our momentum continues to grow, as the Gem City Gentlemen and Beard Team Ohio are widely considered one of the premier and most influential facial hair clubs in the United States.
