The Little Woody (2013) beer list

The Little WoodyThe Little Woody kicks off today in Bend and this year they have 19 breweries represented (most of them are from here in Central Oregon), and all of them are pouring a fantastic selection of beers—the best taplist I’ve yet seen from The Little Woody over the years.
