Beer lovers, mark your calendars! The Team Vance Loans Little Woody Beer Festival returns this Labor Day weekend. This event is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the end of summer with barrel-aged and unique brews from over 20 local breweries with a few cideries, and wineries too.

The Little Woody Beer Festival will take place on September 1 and 2 at the Deschutes Historical Museum. Participants will receive a tasting glass and tokens with their tickets, allowing them to sample some of the most unique and delicious beers in the region.

On Friday night, the festival will host a VIP speaker who will share insights and expertise about the world of barrel-aged brews. The event will also feature whiskeys available for tasting, live music, and plenty of gnomes!

New for this year, The Little Woody will be featuring wines from regional wineries. There is truly something for everyone at this festival.
