Sasquatch Bread2

My birthday is on July 12th. I was born the year a Bigfoot was reportedly killing dogs and sheep around Pine Ridge, Missouri; see page 230, of Janet and Colin Bord’s Bigfoot Casebook Updated.

I am still in pursuit of the elusive Wetzel Kangaroo Beer empties or label. I don’t drink, but cryptobrewology lives on. Unlike some of my associates in this science who are interested in sampling the beer, ale, wine, and whisky, I’m only interested in the public cultural packaging, not the contents.

What, is there no Chupacabras rum?

And though I have seen the label, I don’t have anything tangible from the Nessie drink noted here.

Nessie Drink

I have been attempting to collect a diversity of human foot casts to learn more from them in comparison to my extensive Sasquatch foot cast collection.

Sierra Bigfoot Ale

Thank you for your birthday wishes.

My appreciation to Ms. Kelly McGillis (not the one in Witness) of Canada for the Sasquatch bread wrapper reminder.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    I’ve seen the Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale, although I never sampled it. I would think that chupacabra rum would be unlikely, but possibly chupacabra tequila would be less than unexpected. And although I love a good single malt scotch, I’ve never encountered any tied to Nessie, even when I stayed at a B&B on the loch. I get the impression they take their scotch much too seriously to name it after the monster. Ale on the other hand, maybe so. I can’t read everything on the label you have with the word “Nessie” on it, but I’m thinking it’s a microbrew from the states?

  2. daledrinnon responds:

    For the record, my feet are 11EEE, very unusually broad and square. Still want the casts?

  3. gordonrutter responds:

    Personally I own a bottle of Loch Ness Whisky, as does Loren and the Nessie Ale is from Scotland, the Cairngorm Brewery, nothing to do with American microbreweries.


  4. ponyboy responds:

    sounds like an interesting project you’ve got going with the footprints. I’ll see if I can’t get a cast made for you.

  5. ponyboy responds:

    Do you want these footprints done in the style of a standard BF track casting? (i.e. make a footprint in the mud/dirt and then cast?)

  6. Loren Coleman responds:

    Yes. Or in sand. Thank you.

  7. robzilla responds:

    I have size 16 feet. Ill try.

  8. bill green responds:

    hey everyone that sasquatch bread looks yummy, i do have 2 empty bottles of the sasquatch ale as a collecter item, interesting new article . bill

  9. Regan Lee responds:

    I’ve had the bread; didn’t like it. Tasted like cardboard. But of course I saved the wrapper! As I have the beer bottle. . . (not bad.)

  10. DARHOP responds:

    Are you serious Loren…? Do you really want cast’ of peoples feet…? If so, What do I use for plaster… Any kind of special brand work better than other stuff… Or will any ol plaster work… I mean I”m sure some is stronger than others… Does it have to be plaster…? Can it be like FixAll or something… I know that stuff get’s hard as rock dang near… Anyway I’d be up for sending you a couple cast of my feet… They aren’t huge like some here, but they are feet… Sound’s like you have interesting project going on… Anyway let us know about the plaster… what would be best to use…

  11. Loren Coleman responds:

    Dental stone plaster is the best, and available at medical supply stores.

    However, more reasonably priced for a project like this, and easier to find in a local home supply or hardware store is what is specifically called “plaster of Paris.”

    As you are pouring the plaster, halfway through, it is always best to place pieces of sticks or short thin but strong strips of metal into the drying plaster, then pour more plaster over them. This strengthens the finished plaster copy.

    This is only a shortcut answer, and the fine and detailed technique of casting tracks, especially of Bigfoot and other cryptids, is a study unto itself.

    Actually, casting your own tracks is good practice before you try to take a cast of something important and unique in the field. Even if you don’t send me your casts, I highly recommend you experiment with trying to make casts of your own footprints or your relatives. Ignore their laughter (as I did when I was 12), and master your technique in your backyard before hitting the woods!

  12. DARHOP responds:

    The matal strip’s act like rebar does to cement right… Strengthens the cast…? OK then, plaster of paris it will be… I’m gonna try some FixAll too just to see how it turn’s out… Believe it or not i’m excited to do this… And you are right… I think it makes perfect sense to practice in your own backyard before hitting the bush… Tomorrow is pay day… I will get some plaster and go down to my beach and try a few cast… If they turn out half way good I will send them to you… And thanks’ for the tips Loren…

  13. DARHOP responds:

    Hmmmmm…? I’m thinking, make a little form… Throw some dirt and what not in it, get it wet like making mud pies as a kid.. Then step in the mud, make a print and let it dry… Then take the plaster and make a cast… Then do a couple down at the beach in the sand… Just to see the difference… Hmmm. A guy could really get into this couldn’t he… Kool!!!!!
