We are the Metropolitan Pogonotrophy Society. Nashville, Tennessee's beard and moustache club! We are a group of like-minded individuals that have come together to better our community, state, and world. Our club was officially founded in January of 2011, and so our journey began. Since then we have spent our days striving to achieve our philanthropic goals. Doing so has given us great reward and we only hope to do more.

In February of 2012 our Club officially entered the world of competitive bearding. Our beards, moustaches, chops, and more began competing for charity and glory! Since 2012, MPS has placed over 75 times collectively! A few of our members also have earned the prestigious title of Best in Show at a number of events.

These past years have been a wild ride that we hope to be on for a long time to come. If you have the passion for pogonotrophy and community, we encourage you to jump on board with us and see where this train goes.
Grow long and grow strong!


If you have an interest in joining the club, this is the place to start!
Everyone is welcome, even the barefaced.
