The effort is a continuation of Wahl’s “Real Guys. Real Grooming.” campaign, which began last year with a spotlight on the Clinton LumberKings, minor league baseball players in Iowa who were chasing their dream. This time around, Wahl turns the cameras on modern-day cowboys and craft brewers who are living their dream.
