Kick Off Your Labor Day Weekend with The Little Woody – Bend, Oregon

Celebrating all things fermented, The Little Woody Bend will return to Des Chutes Historical Museum on September 1st & 2nd, 2017.

The Little Woody Barrel Aged Beer and Whiskey Festival will celebrate craft wood-aged beers from across the Northwest, along with small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons, barrel-aged ciders, during the ninth annual festival.

Well-known for its barrel-aged beer selection, the Little Woody also features several stellar ciders in its tasting lineup. In celebration of the growth of the local and regional cider scene, there will be several barrel-aged cideries including Atlas Cider Co., Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider and Tumalo Cider Co.

To commemorate one of Oregon’s hallmarks—craft beer—and lend a nod to the historic techniques used by brewers with oaken casks, The Little Woody will once again feature small-batch beers aged in wood barrels by top Northwest breweries including Bend Brewing Co., Fort George Brewery, Deschutes Brewery, GoodLife Brewing, 10 Barrel Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing Co., Mazama Brewing, Oakshire Brewing, Plank Town Brewing Co., Three Creeks Brewing, Wild Ride, and Worthy Brewing. The 2017 Little Woody will also feature tastings of small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons such as Oregon Spirits Distillery, live music, Speakers Series and local food vendors.
