Medium sized place. Freight train comes through every 20 minutes or so. Friendly. Lots of beer tourists. Reasonable choice of beers.

easy access from both west and easy sides. garage door entrance and open/high-ceilinged interior with a half-dozen tables and about 15 bar seats. small kitchen for grub and a few small coolers for bottles (most for on-premises only). taps include fred from the wood, adam, greg, blue dot, doggie claws 07, while bottles include 08 and 09 cherry adam, michael, matt, rose cassis, ruth and a few others. friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. this area is slowly growing into something substantial, especially with the addition of clark lewis around the corner.

I walked over here from Cascade which is only a couple blocks away. Actually, pretty much everything in Portland is only a couple blocks away. Living close to this place could be bad for my health. Adam and Fred all year long along with experimental stuff on tap to tick (they do small beers with the four big ones: Doggy Claws, Fred, Adam, and Matt). They also have vintage bottles for sale to drink there like batch 1 Adam, albeit for $100. I probably wonít be dropping that kind of money on a single bottle there but Iíll drink the regular beers on tap there again for sure.

After reading the laudative reviews, I figured this place was an absolute must. It kinda was as we had the rare chance to try Matt and Greg with description from Master Sprints himself. The place is basically a pilgrimage, extremely hard to find in an ugly industrial remote part of town. Once inside, you need to squeeze yourself through the hundred or so barrels loaded with elixir. What pulled you here is the beer and Alan was kind enough to offer us free samples of the 5-6 beers he had available on that day. Sorry, no Dave available. It was a nice experience which Iím glad I did, but I was not totally thrown to the floor even though I consider HOTD my favourite brewery in the USA.

(Visited 05/2013): Hair Of The Dog is on Yamhill and Water Ave in the Buckman area of east Portland, in an industrial area. Street parking is available on the surrounding streets.
The interior is open with table seating throughout most of the space, and there is a bar in the rear. Brightly painted walls and wooden support beams.
HOTD has around 8 of their beers on draught, including standards like Adam plus some rarer options like Little Dog, Lila and Will on my visit. There are bottles available both for onsite consumption and to take home as well, Bourbon Fred From The Wood for example.
Service on our weekend afternoon visit was pretty good. Our server knew the beer menu and was friendly.
We did not have any food on our visit.
Overall this is one of the must-visit beer spots in Portland.

High-ceilinged industrial park brewery. About six taps or so, plus various bottles and schwag for sale. Alan is a solid host and cooked up some good food for the OBF Open House, though there isnít usually food available.

Big, brand new location for this top brewery. Really nice food menu to boot with some good barbecue, mac n cheese. Brisket was excellent. Tap list is small, only HotD house beers, which isnít necessarily a bad thing. Not many things on tap that you canít get in bottles. The Lila on tap was disappointing. Little Doggie Claws was very impressive. They always have a "from the Wood" tap, which is very nice so you donít have to always be trading or spending vintage bottle prices to try those. Ambiance is crowded, popular, modern. High ceilings and nice decor. Alan said a quick hi to us while we were in line for the Matt release and told us we were crazy for lining up so early. We were there way too early. He was right. Servers were pros all around. They have some seriously good training.

Visited on Tues 6th November around mid day.
Large single roomed venue with a bar to the side and lots of wooden bench seating.
7 HOTD taps and a guest, plus various vintage bottles of Adam and friends for drink in only.
Service was prompt, friendly and efficient and we had some snacks which were good too. Menu was fairly high end and looked good.
Atmosphere was a bit flat but it hadnít long opened. A large organised tour group of 20 or so arrived just before we departed. Plenty of merchandise on sale. Well reccomended - would like to try on an evening next time, although I imagine it will be hard to find the right balance between too quiet and too busy!

A super friendly tasting room in an industrial sector of town. Limited but delicious menu, of cheeses, cold cuts, and a daily menu, made by the brewer! 7 taps of exceptional beers, at 2$ per 3 ounces sample or 6 samples for 12$. Another must.
