The Greatest Brewers Mustaches of All-Time!

Sometime contributor Lou Olsen (of Reviewing the Brew fame) sent me an email the other day asking me to serve as his "Stache Specialist".

Naturally, I was flattered.

But clearly...I needed more information.

As it turns out, Olsen and his ragtag team of misfits are breaking down the five best mustaches in Milwaukee Brewers history.

Number five, naturally, the team's mascot...Bernie Brewer.

My take was simple:

The beautiful thing about Bernie Brewer's mustache is not the glorious yellow lip sweater itself...but the seemingly drunken smile that it hangs above. And yes, I'm calling the Colonel DeBeers lookalike a drunk. Think about it, without alcohol entering the equation, there's no other explanation behind a full grown adult in lederhosen, hurling his body down a waterless waterslide to celebrate a home run.

But I digress.

If you ask me (and I was), Bernie Brewer's mustache is one of the three finest mascot mustaches in baseball history...right up there with Mr. Redlegs and Mario. You remember Mario Super Sluggers, right? Yeah, I didn't either...I had to look it up.

You can read the rest of the discussion over at Reviewing the Brew.  But, before you go...watch this old school Brewers video!
