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

Fri, Sep 3, 5-10pm & Sat, Sep 4, Noon-10pm

  • 21+

The Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival celebrates craft barrel-aged beer and cider from across the Northwest, along with whiskey, during the ninth annual festival Sep. 3rd & 4th, 2021. The Little Woody takes place on the lawn of the Deschutes Historical Museum at 129 Northwest Idaho Ave. in downtown Bend, Oregon.

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. For a full line-up of featured brews, which will be updated closer to the event, visit

The first 500 gnomies to enter the festival on Friday will receive a free sample from Westward Whiskey!

The 2021 Little Woody will also feature a tasting of small-batch American rye whiskeys and bourbons, live music and local food vendors.

**With many restrictions already being lifted across the state, we are removing the ticketed time slots for this event. All tickets will allow admission for either Friday or Saturday. If you want to attend both days, you will need to hang on to your tasting glass and wristband from Friday to enter the festival on Saturday.**
