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

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.

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.

Perhaps the crown jewel of the Portland breweries. Cool industrial space with a really open feel to it. U-shaped bar and plenty of tables all around the outside.

Perhaps a little hard to judge the service here as they let our group in early, gave us some free tastes, and a tour for the RBSG group. But all well appreciated and everyone who came in later seemed to be well taken care of.

Kind of amazing, even shocking, that these guys basically havenít updated or improved anything in 20+ years since they started in the early 90s. Everything basically done manually, by hand, with no automation.

The beers here, are mostly good. Though of course I sought to try some of the random new stuff I had not had before, so some of those were misses. But overall good prices on everything and some cool tap room only offerings as well as lots of neat bottles.

The food here was also quite good as well, which I was a bit surprised by for some reason. Highly recommend a stop for lunch.

Looks like a converted garage, very open and spacious. Can get a little loud. Service was OK and beer selection is primarily theirs which are pretty good. Food is simple but fresh and prices are a tad on the high side. This is a great place if you like their beer, but beyond that no better or worse than any other in the area.

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!

Total pilgrimage. Interestingly, not all the beers were on form when we were there but Adam really was, and so was Little Dog. Fun place, lively, and the menu looks good too.

(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.
