Bigfoot Beverages Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival at Deschutes Historical Museum

  • Deschutes Historical Museum 129 Northwest Idaho Avenue Bend, OR, 97701 United States (map)

Bend, OR — The Bigfoot Beverages Little Woody Barrel-Aged Beer, Cider & Whiskey Festival returns to Bend, Oregon on Aug. 30 & 31, 2019. Celebrate the craft of Northwest barrel-aged beer and cider, along with small-batch American spirits, during the two-day festival on the lawn of the Deschutes Historical Museum in downtown Bend.
Each year, The Little Woody curates the very best selection of barrel-aged beers, ciders and whiskeys. It’s something that makes The Little Woody unlike other festivals in the region.
Lay It Out Events is excited to announce Bigfoot Beverages is joining the festival in 2019 as the title sponsor. Through the generosity of sponsors like Bigfoot Beverages, we are able to make The Little Woody a spectacular event every year.

In addition to limited-edition beer tastes, tasty food truck bites and lawn games, guests can kick back and relax with live music from The Jess Ryan Band, Friends From Home, Long Tall Eddy and the Allan Byer Project.
Be a Gnomie Homie with The Big Token!
At the end of The Little Woody, a select group of Gnomie Homies who purchase The Big Token are allowed to fill their Growlers with the remaining beer on tap. The Big Token is $15/adv. and $20/gate and will allow beer lovers to fill their growler between 9:30 and 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31. Beer selection is subject to availability.
Dress the Part — Get a Limited-Edition Snifter & Drink Tokens
The first 300 attendees who show up in full garden gnome attire will receive a limited edition Big Woody snifter and four drink tokens. A complete costume includes beards, hats, overalls — perhaps even a wooden pipe — but a gnome hat alone won’t cut it!
