About the Name

A number of years ago at Barley’s Taproom in Asheville, North Carolina I was talking to a man at the bar.  His wife quietly interrupted him and said, “Why are you talking to that Bearded Riff Raff, we are from NEW JERSEY.”  I couldn’t deny it, I am the Bearded Riff Raff and I am not from NEW JERSEY.  I decided to own it. Bottoms up!  Here’s to the Bearded Riff Raff!
