More Musings on the Malty Merriment: Little Woody day 2

"Ssampling" at the Barrel-Aged Brew Fest.

Posted By on Sun, Sep 4, 2011 at 3:04 PM

Nothing was able to usurp Deschutes's Solace Rose at Little Woody, but some came damn close.

Already a great beer, Ninkasi's Maiden the Shade which was aged in a Ransom Distillery Old Tom Gin barrel, became heavenly. Light on malt and still plenty hoppy, its time in the wooden gin barrel did something magical to the popular brew.

The Bourbon Ace of Spades from HUB was pretty righteous. And still on my sour/saison-style beer kick, I thought the La Ferme Du Funk from Oakshire lovely. Though you did look like a complete wanker drinking what appeared to be a rosey blush.

There were plenty of folks who got a good head start on Saturday's festivities (see below). If you weren't there, we hope you were doing something worthwhile.

Note: A little too fast off the blocks, I wasn't able to stick around until the tapping of Boneyard's Sug Night? Anybody get into that one? Thoughts?

Deschutes Brewery took home a total of four medals, including a gold medal for its Dissident which took top honors in the Flanders Brown Ale category.

Cascade Lakes Brewing won a gold for their Paulina Pilsner in the German Pilsner category and a silver for their Monkey Face Porter in the Robust Porter division.

Bend Brewing Company made an impressive showing, too. They won three medals at the competition, including a silver in the Belgian Dark Strong Ale for their limited edition Wicked Medicine.

Also winning a medal was Silver Moon Brewing, which made an impressive showing with a silver medal for its Bridge Creek Pilsner, beating out none other than Samuel Adams' Noble Pilsner.
