St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and (partially) at the behest of a reader, I’m compiling a list of the appropriately-themed beers from Bend’s various breweries. Of course, an Irish-themed holiday usually calls for Stout, so I’ve listed each brewery’s house Stout (if they have one)—but of course, it’s the seasonals we’re after as well.

The Little Woody: The beers

The beer list for The Little Woody, Bend’s barrel-aged beer festival (more here), came out today, and it’s looking really good. There are actually two versions of the beer list: one on the official site, and another one released over on Bend Oregon Restaurants (it’s from the marketing copy that the organizing company sent out).
