New “Beard Chain” Record Set In Wyoming


      Facial hair enthusiasts claim to have set a new world record for longest beard chain during an event at a Casper bar on Friday. 

Dozens of men with beards 8-inches or longer stood side by side and clipped their beards together to create a hairy chain that was measured at 150 feet long.

That’s more than double the official Guinness World Record of 62 feet, 6 inches, set in Germany in 2007. 

     The new record claim came on the sidelines of the National Beard and Moustache Championships, which took place Saturday at the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper. It must be confirmed by Guinness before officially becoming the record.
