Delinquents Club

punkspeare copy

Come ye miscreants, minstrels, beer nerds, and barflies! Come ye troubadours, punks, thespians, and metal heads! We are distinguished delinquents, and so are you! Join us in our raucous celebration of community, carousal, and craft beer!


Fellowship of the Beard

Humans are communal creatures. From the earliest days of our evolution we’ve banded together to explore and experience the world around us. From the plains of Africa to ancient Mesopotamia to the Inca to the Victorians to today, our drive to coalesce and converge is a defining mark of our character. Just how we organize ourselves varies, yet at the core of each ensemble is humankind’s unyielding spirit of community. For us at the Beard, the Delinquents Club is a unique kind of community – one where delinquents from all walks of life can enjoy an artfully crafted beer while finding respite, repose, engaging conversation, and a good laugh in the company of their fellow miscreants. May craft beer and community be the ties that bind us all!

Punkspeare, Torchbearer of the Delinquents

An iconic figure with a rebel chic, Punkspeare is a confluence of the classical and contemporary artists and forms that inspire us. Punkspeare is witty and well-spoken, yet down to earth. He tells great stories and makes people laugh. Self-deprecating humor is not below him. Punkspeare enjoys a pint and a conversation and is known to draw thought-provoking parallels between great beer and literature, life, music & the arts. Punkspeare is an everyman’s hero and the most distinguished delinquent of the lot.
