Falvey will be honored with a special drink combination called the Sasquatch. It is made with Dr Pepper with blue raspberry, huckleberry and cream.

“Michael had an odd but hilarious obsession with Sasquatch. We thought it would only be fitting for his tribute drink to go hand in hand with his passion for the mysterious creature of the woods,” Sipps wrote in an announcement.
