Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Barrel-Aged is Best: Little Woody, day 1

A short list of favorites after the first day of tasting.

Posted By on Sat, Sep 3, 2011 at 4:51 PM

Beer carefully produced from established brewers that has spent the last 6-18+ months in a barrel, absorbing flavors from the Pinot Noir/bourbon/gin /rum that previously lived in said barrel is generally pretty awesome.

That's my take after spending 2.5 hours at the Little Woody Barrel-Aged Brew Fest Friday night (which was packed).

Some favorites:

Deschutes: Solace Rose. Holy shit sours taste good. Wash. cherries thrown in the mix and aged in a Pinot barrel.

Silver Moon: Chocolate Darkside Stout. It's quite chocolaty and stout-y. And awesome. Been hanging out in a bourbon barrel for 9 months.

BBC: Ching Ching. Oof. A delicious German, effervescent white beer.

So I didn't make it too far after I tried the Solace Rose. I'll branch out more today (noon-10PM).

Pumped to try Boneyard's Sug Night (15% Imperial Stout aged 200 days in a bourbon barrel). See y'all there. (Tip: Carry around the one-page beer guide, available at the entrance, so you have some idea of what the hell you're drinking)
