About The Little Woody Series
The adventure began in Bend, Oregon nine years ago with the original Little Woody and continues to spread. The 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. The event has now spread across the Northwest to Medford, Oregon, Eugene, Oregon and soon Boise, Idaho delivering the cheer of great brews, spirits and of course, gnomes.
