The Big Woody was inspired by the Little Woody beer festival in Bend, which has drawn thousands to Central Oregon in the name of specialty wood-aged beers for the past five years. Beer was originally created and aged in wooden barrels, a traditional technique the Big Woody celebrates. Wood-aging beer gives the brew a deeper, more complex character with a higher alcohol content.

Top breweries from across the West will be debuting specially produced beers during the Big Woody. The only rule is that beers must be aged in wooden barrels. Past Little Woody festivals have seen beers aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels to pinot noir barrels, creating beers including sours, Belgian-style ales and classic Northwest IPAs.

Entry to the festival is $40 and includes 20 tasting tokens and a commemorative snifter glass. Space is limited and tickets are only good for the evening purchased. Tickets are on sale now: http://bendticket.strangertickets.com/events/8830439/big-woody .
