Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Little Woody Starts Tonight!

Posted By on Fri, Aug 30, 2013 at 9:57 AM

Bend's Barrel-Aged Brew and Whiskey Festival kicks off tonight at 5 pm!

Little Woody is not your average beer festival. With twenty breweries presenting specialty barrel aged brews, and eight different whiskeys available for sample inside the Des Chutes Historical Museum, this is one of our favorite events of the year. Read descriptions of all of the beer and whiskeys here or pick up a Source and check out the Little Woody Guide in print, on stands now. For tips on how to best tackle the beer-fest, read James Williams' blog "How to Drink at a Beer Festival."

While we haven't had a chance to taste all the beers (believe us we'll be trying tonight) we did get to participate in a tasting to help select the smokey, peaty whiskeys. Our favorites are listed below.

Blanton’s Original Single Barrel Bourbon: a deep burning full bodied whiskey.
Willett Pot Still Reserve: Light pecan and toffee flavors.
Maker’s 46: An almost chocolaty sweet stronger incarnation of original Maker's Mark with a good burn and a long finish.
Templeton Rye: A peaty solid rye that will make you want a sazerac.

Thirsty yet? The Little Woody takes place right in the Source's backyard at the Des Chutes Historical Museum, 129 NW Idaho Ave. The festival continues Saturday from noon-10 pm. See you there!
