Bigfoot and Brews: Olympia Beer Company Offers Sasquatch Live Capture Prize

Bigfoot and Brews: Olympia Beer Company Offers Sasquatch Live Capture Prize


The Olympia beer company is now offering a $1 million reward for what they call “the safe return of Bigfoot” in the pacific northwest.

According to a press release, the owners of the Pabst Brewing Company is offering the reward for “irrefutable” evidence our our hairy friend Bigfoot.

Olympia Beer states that the rules are that the winner must prove the “the irrefutable existence of Bigfoot at some time during the period beginning January 1, 1989 through March 31, 2014.”, and they are serious about the evidence being irrefutable. The rules state that proof must be DNA, from either hair, blood, tissue, or saliva. I wonder if someone could get Bigfoot to spit at them.


From the release:

We have been sharing the same backyard for over a century and we believe it’s time to do what has never been done, and that is to offer a one million dollar reward to anyone who can ensure the safe capture of Bigfoot. When we say safe capture that means Bigfoot has to be alive and breathing folks, with no wounds. That’s right you can’t use any act of violence, no guns/knives/boxing gloves/nets/etc, only sugar or sweets to lure him in.

Bigfoot and beer, what could go wrong? No offense to beer drinkers around the world, but I hope that we do not get a bunch of drunk hunters chasing down every hairy animal in the woods near them.

Are you interested in an “easy” $1 million? Olympia Beer wishes you happy hunting! To register for the contest, you can visit the official website.

What do you think?  Is this a good idea to help in finding bigfoot, or will it cause more hoaxes? Are you going to take a crack at it? We want to know! Tweet us @WeirdHQ, drop us a line on Facebook, or leave a message in the comments!

    I just moved to WA state. I have been developing a synthetic sugar block bait to safely attract Bigfoot. This cool $1 million would go a long way toward support the drinking habit that inspired this genius idea.

    I would put 50k into developing this sugar bait further and the remainder into the “inspiration”.

        He’s a real sport about it! Interesting, relaxed interview. Let’s hope 75% of my scribbling will make any sense when I translate it. He talks faster than I do. LOL

    The Beer company is going to save money and get free advertisement at the same time.
    Bigfoot isn’t going to found… so he’s safe regardless.
    He’s been safe all these decades I’ve been chasing him.
    Altho I caught up with him three times back when he wasn’t hunted.
    He’s wise to us now… and stands his hidden ground.
    The Government helps as well.
    Been there, done that!
