Produced by the Northwest Legends Foundation, the Sasquatch Brew Fest is dedicated to the memory of Glen Hay Falconer. Born during a celebration of life of Falconer, a popular and leading Pacific Northwest professional brewer, the Sasquatch Brew Fest is dedicated to Falconer’s love of the rich beer and brewing culture in the Pacific Northwest. Falconer was the skilled head brewer at the now-closed Wild Duck Brewery in Eugene as well as a mentor and resource for home brewers and professional brewers until his untimely passing in 2002.
Proceeds will benefit the Northwest Legends Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to produce the annual festival, as well as area non-profits dear to Glen Falconer, and the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, a non-profit organization set up and maintained by Glen’s brother, Quentin Falconer. The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation provides opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise in the field by awarding brewing school scholarships to worthy candidates each chosen by a committee.
