Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival

The Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival celebrates barrel-aged beers and ciders from across the Northwest. Come taste the velvety, deep and intense flavors, and enjoy the intimacy of small batch brewing from 25 local and regional brewers. The annual Little Woody Bend Festival is located on the lawn at the Deschutes Historical Museum, in beautiful downtown Bend. To commemorate one of Central Oregon’s hallmarks—craft beer—and lend a nod to the historic techniques used by brewers with oaken casks, The Little Woody features small-batch beers aged in wood barrels by top Northwest breweries including Deschutes Brewery, Ninkasi Brewing, GoodLife Brewing, 10 Barrel Brewing and more. Little Woody will also feature a tasting of small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons, live music and local food vendors. This festival is based on the enthusiasm and excitement for small batch wood aged beers, and the other clever concoctions that local and regional brewers dream of. Whiskey tasting and cider experiments are never far from a gnomes elbow. Now the event has spread across the state delivering the cheer of great brews, spirits and of course, gnomes.
