Adam Beard came through the junior ranks at Morriston RFC, Birchgrove RFC and Neath Port Talbot College before joining the Ospreys Academy.

He also played for Aberavon in the Principality Premiership. He partnered fellow lock Rory Thornton for Wales at Under 18 and 20 levels, and finally in the senior side, while both players were learning their trade at the Ospreys. He toured South Africa with the Wales U18 side in 2013 before going on to win 15 caps for Wales U20 in 2015 and 2016. He was a key member of the Wales U20 Grand Slam side in 2016.

His senior Ospreys debut came in January, 2014 against Exeter Chiefs when he came on as a replacement. His Guinness PRO12 debut came against Glasgow two years later, when he signed a three-year contract at the Ospreys.

He made his debut for Wales against Samoa in Apia on the 2017 summer tour, coming on as a replacement, and then made his first start in the home victory over Georgia five months later. His 6 Nations debut came in the win over France in Paris in 2019 – his ninth straight win in a Wales shirt. He went on to start in four of the Grand Slam matches in the 2019 championships, and come on as a replacement in the other, as he extended his unbeaten run in a Welsh shirt to 11 matches up to 1 August, 2019.
