Barrel-Aged is Best: Little Woody, day 1 

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

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)
