Deschutes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo for a week in KC

Deschutes' Woody is on the road again.

Deschutes’ Woody is on the road again.

The adult version of the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile is en route to Kansas City. Deschutes is bringing Woody — the oversized beer barrel (spoiler alert: it’s got beer taps inside) on wheels — for a week of events around the metro area they term ‘Base Camp for Beer Fanatics.’ [The full list of festivities is here.]

Woody will be at Bier Station (120 E Gregory Boulevard) on Monday, May 5, for a Cinco de Mayo party from 5 to 9 p.m. featuring the food truck Indios Carbonsitos and a randall of Deschutes Black Butte Porter with tequila-soaked oak chips in a glass rimmed with salt and lime. The following night, it’s ‘Hats off to Homebrewers,’ at Martin City Brewing Company (500 E 135th Street). On Tuesday from 5 to 9 p.m., brewers from Oregon and Martin City will be there to talk shop and give out beer brewing supply samples. Tickets are $30, which includes beer, a commemorative snifter and some grub. Anton’s Taproom (1610 Main Street) is hosting a ‘Beef and Brew,’ patio party on Thursday, May 8, from 6 to 10 p.m. with live music and Deschutes’ Fresh Squeezed IPA and Armory XPA.

The week ends with Beer-lesque — a comedy and burlesque show at Lagniappe (320 Southwest Boulevard) on Friday, May 9, from 8 to 11 p.m. The variety show’s highlight might be at intermission, when Deschutes cracks out its Black Butte XXV — the beer made for its 25th anniversary. Tickets are $5.

Tonight, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., they’ll be sampling brews from the Oregon brewery, giving away pint glasses and showcasing ‘Woody,’ the giant RV-sized beer barrel on wheels that is a mobile bar.
