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).

You can view those pages for more details on the style and making of the beers, but in the meantime I’ve compiled them all into an easy-to-read list just for you (all breweries are from Central Oregon except the two I noted from elsewhere):

While the “big” beers are always popular, I can’t help but notice and be very curious about the lighter beers on this list: the Metolius Golden, Wonka’s Wit, Berliner Weisse, Merlot Cask Amber, and Beechwood Blonde. I’d classify these as must-trys, and in particular make for an easy-drinking start to your day.

Also note the prevalence of sour beers, four by my read of the descriptions (18% of the offerings). This is definitely a festival that’s going to appeal to the beer geeks.
