Olympia Beer is looking for........Bigfoot???

There are a few things that are just synonymous with the Pacific Northwest, rain, coffee, hipsters, Microsoft, grunge music and my personal favorite, Bigfoot! Now, I make no secret of the fact that Bigfoot fascinates me. Not because I believe there is a big hairy ape running around the NW, avoiding capture and only occasionally allowing a grainy, fuzzy photo be taken of him every 6 months or so. No, I am fascinated by the people that devote their lives to searching out this allusive, questionably real animal. Much like some people are fascinated with and study serial killers, the "Bigfoot Community" fascinates me in much the same (no, I am not comparing the two, don't worry). How they can take a piece of completely subjective, unidentifiable piece of "evidence" and pass it off as hardcore, indisputable proof of the hairy fellow is amazing to me. All logic and common sense goes out the window, and passion and bias takes over all their senses. It is incredible to me. Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that I do not believe in Bigfoot, I am not however, convinced they do in fact exist. These people are seeing something, what is it? I have no idea, but I am pretty sure it isn't a 9 foot tall, bipedel gorilla, but I do think that it could be something, as to what it is? Who knows.

The Beer Community often embraces the large allusive primate as well. Mostly tongue in check hat tips to the the big guy, Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot, Great Davide's Yeti, and even locally, Four Peaks Hop-squatch all pay homage to America's most famous Cryptid. Well, now it seems the NW's own Olympia Beer is jumping into the Cryptozoological fry with a new contest! Offering $1,000,000 for the safe capture of the biped (paid in an annuity, $25,000 a year over 40 years). Check out the company's post, and to enter the contest, and get the rules, click the link below.

$1,000,000 Reward for Safe Return of Bigfoot!

OK, now the thought of an extra $25,000 a year for the next 40 years is pretty attractive! Maybe there should be a "Beer Czar Bigfoot Expedition"! I wonder if we catch the Mogollon Monster (Arizona's "version" of Bigfoot) if that would count? Who's with me? Pack up your camping gear, we got a "squatch" to catch!!!!

Until next time
Bottoms Up my Friends!
The Beer Czar
