The Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival will celebrate barrel-aged beers and ciders from across the Northwest

The Little Woody Barrel Aged Beer and Whiskey Festival will celebrate craft wood-aged beers from across the Northwest, along with whiskey, during the seventh annual festival August 31st & September 1st, 2018. The Little Woody takes place next to the Deschutes Historical Museum, 129 NW Idaho Ave. in downtown Bend, Ore.

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, New Belgium Brewing and more. The 2018 Little Woody will also feature a tasting of small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons, live music, and local food vendors.

Gnomie Homie Growler Fill

At the end of every Little Woody Event a select group of Gnomie Homies are allowed into the event to fill their Growlers with the remaining event nectar. From 9:30-10:00 we will sell attendees The Big Token which allows you to fill a growler of your choice from the remaining beer available on tap. Keep in mind, some beers may not be available at this point in the event but you may take your pick of those that are. The growler fills cannot be consumed on premise and again, beer is based on availability. Why let all of that great tasting beer go to waste? Be a Gnomie Homie.
