The Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival

celebrates craft barrel-aged beer, cider and whiskey from across the Northwest. The Little Woody takes place on the lawn of the Deschutes Historical Museum at 129 Northwest Idaho Ave. in downtown Bend, Oregon.

The 2023 Little Woody will also feature a tasting of small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons from regional favorites, live music and local food vendors.

Oak Aged Honey, Apricot & Nectarine – 8.5% ABV

Oaked stone fruit and honey with a tangy little nectarine spin on it! Acidity from ripe nectarines and apricots is softened by the sweetness of local honey and rounded out on the finish by the mellow tannins of toasted french oak.

Lava Terrace Cellars

2021 Marquette – 13.5% ABV

Aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, and cherry enchant the senses. Marquette dances in the mouth with bright fig and strawberry flavors, pleasing acid, and a warm vanilla finish. Pair with pasta or stew dishes, beef, lamb, and spicy foods. Serve slightly cool. Barrel-aged.

10 Barrel Brewing

Tone Wood – 10.5% ABV

We can thank Oregon Spirit Distillers for these amazing casks which originally held their beautiful Bourbon Whiskey then was home to maple syrup before they graciously passed them to us. Soft bourbon and maple highlight the sophisticated malt character of our traditional Doppelbock.

Lucid Daydreams – ABV 6.2% ABV

Gin is not traditionally aged in casks but in America anything goes. We added a blend of mixed culture beer to various gin barrels then let time work its magic. Juniper and citrus play the starring role while an earthy wood character dances in the background.

Boneyard Beer

Gooze Cruze – 5.7% ABV / 6 IBU

From Bend, not Brussels – Gooze Cruze uses Boneyard’s proprietary wild yeast culture and is aged in Seguin Moreau Foeders. This process creates a complex and balanced version of a traditional Oude Gueuze style Lambic.

Khu Larb Thai Lager – 4% ABV / 20 IBU

Brewed in collaboration with Wild Rose, Sen and Khu Larb Thai Restaurants. This Thai lager is single hopped with Bravo and pairs perfectly with sunshine.

Silver Moon Brewing

Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Side w/ Coffee – 8.5% ABV

Oregon Spirits Bourbon barrel that was used to make a batch of Maple Syrup before coming to Silver Moon and being filled with Dark Side Stout. We added a cold brew concentrate made from Colombian coffee from Bend Roastery to round out this barrel aged brew.

Chela Mexican Lager – 5% ABV / 10 IBU

Looking for something that will bring you closer to the beach, even if it’s just in your head? This is the beer for you. Kick up your feet and enjoy… with a lime of course.

Sunriver Brewing Company

Wood Series 2023 Bourbon Barrel Ale – 14.7% ABV

Our Bourbon Barrel Ale began life as a robust, malt-forward strong ale. Aged for 12 months in Kentucky’s finest bourbon barrels, the beer displays complex notes of dried cherry, orange peel, vanilla, and caramel, with a distinctly smooth, warming finish.

Bondi Beach Party IPA – 6.4% ABV / 50 IBU

Bondi’s overall impression is that of a well-integrated, easy-drinking and refreshing IPA. Dry hopping during active fermentation creates vibrant notes of mango nectar, ripe passionfruit, Strawberry Kush, and lychee blossoms. Light bodied and relatively dry, this tropical IPA is your own Bondi beach party in a can.

Three Creeks Brewing

Bier Bier Oktoberfest Bier – 6.2% ABV / 25 IBU

Prost! It’s Oktoberfest!! Influenced by the classic Marzen-Style Biers originating in the heart of Bavaria, this copper-colored lager features a blend of imported German Pilsner, Vienna & Munich malts, topped off with aromatic Liberty hops. Expect notes of toasted hazelnuts, browned toast plus a faint touch of bakery-like sweetness, along with a smooth body and a clean, crisp finish.

McKay’s Reserve – Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged Ale – 10.9% ABV / 27 IBU

This very special batch of McKay’s Scottish Ale is brewed with two distinctive 2-Row base malts, four varieties of crystal malts and a touch of smoked malt, creating rich, caramel flavors with a hint of smoke. We aged this batch in Crater Lake Distillery’s Estate Rye Whiskey oak barrels for 12 months, adding a warm, “boozy” finish, with hints of vanilla and oak.

Fort George Brewing

2023 Matryoshka Barrel Aged Imperial Stout – 12.2% ABV

Matryoshka begins with a decadent imperial stout aged for one year in whiskey and bourbon barrels. During this 12 month period of confinement, the powerful flavor of the barrel tempers the dessert-like sweetness of the base beer to produce a rich, smooth stout that is neither too thick, nor too thin. Smaller variations will continue to emerge from the mother batch, conditioned on complementary ingredients, creating a family of variants to be released in Feb. 2023.

Half Liter Fest Beer – 5.6% ABV

The identifying characteristic of a Fest Beer is you can drink a lot of it. The identifying characteristic of a Fort George Beer is it contains hops. The identifying characteristic of a Stoup Beer is it's delicious. Combine these three dominant beer traits and you get Half Liter: a pleasantly earthy, crisply carbonated, reassuringly toasty Fest Beer brewed by Fort George and Stoup Brewing.

Kobold Brewing

Lawful Evil Merciless Russian Imperial Stout – ABV 11.8% | IBU 47

Inspired by brewers in the 1800’s to win over the Russian Czar, this is the king of stouts. Black as the sky on a moonless night, this big beer boasts complex flavors of raisin, fig and chocolate. We took this big beer and aged it for almost a year in bourbon barrels, which created big bold delicious barrel flavors of vanilla, anise, dark fruit and wood.

Hyperborean Expedition 5.5% ABV 16 IBU (Dry-Hopped Lager)

Aromas of tropical fruits and citrus in a refreshing lager with a subtle malt presence.

pFriem Family Brewers

Tequila Barrel Aged Mole Stout – 9.0% ABV / 50 IBU

This unique variation of our Mexican Chocolate Stout is a bold, cacao-forward beer that is flavored with dried ancho and smoky pasilla peppers, clove and cinnamon spice, toasted almond, and earthy black pepper. Vegetal notes from aging in tequila barrels display aromas of eucalyptus and pink peppercorns. The spice and mild heat from the peppers add a depth of flavor that is balanced by the sweetness of the chocolate and the bitterness of the roasted malts.

pFriem Lager – 5% ABV / 20 IBU

When the golden and clean lagers of Plzeň (Bohemia) became all the rage in the mid-1800’s, München brewers feared that Germans would start drinking the Czech beer in place of their own. Munich Helles Lager was their answer to meet the demand. A bit maltier, they often share the same spicy hop characters of Czech Pils, but are a bit more subdued and in balance with the malts.

We have over 15 local and regional breweries joining this year with a selection of cider and wine!

Wild Ride Brewing

Phil’s Pils – 5.1% ABV / 15 IBU

Enjoy a refreshing Pilsner after a long ride! Inspired by classic European Pilsner styles, Phil’s Pils allows your taste buds to really spin their wheels. The Saaz and Sterling hops create an aroma that is herbal with notes of spice. This beer is clean and crisp with a mellow sweet malt complexity, finishing with a touch of a dryness and low bitterness residue.

Rum Barrel Aged 3 Sisters Red Ale – 6.5% ABV / 45 IBU

We took our 3 Sisters Red Ale and aged it for 6 mo. in a dark rum barrel from 4 spirits Distillery in Corvallis. The end result being a wonderful aroma and flavor combination of rum soaked dark fruits, toffee and cocoa. At a mere 6.5% it is highly quaffable.


Barrel Aged Rindless – 8.9% ABV

Barrel Aged Abominable Ale – 11.3% ABV / 55 IBU
