Visited on a Monday morning. We didnít really have an appointment, although we had called Alan several times to let him know we were wanting to stop by. We took a chance, and he was there and showed us around. The place itself isnít much to look at, but it was still cool nonetheless. Alan could not have been a nicer guy to us, and gave us generous samples of the HotD beers. And those beers were great. He gave us a tour, was very intelligent and informative, and it was a great experience. A must-stop destination if in Portland, but be sure to have an appointment.

Great beers, not much doubt about that. But Iíve never understood the high rating for HOTD as a place. As a place to go, there are considerable limitations in every category that is considered the base criteria for rating places on ratebeer. Many of the people who have rated it so highly appear to have visited when there was a special event of some kind, be it the ratebeer summer gathering or what have you. And that is truly where Alan is at his best. If you can go there on the right day at the right time, he is very hospitable and it can be a fabulous experience. But for a day-to-day place to hang out &/or drink a variety of good beers, I think it is grossly overrated for the average joe beer tourist, or local beer lover who is not part of ďthe sceneĒ. If you want to go here and get that tops-in-the-world experience, make sure you contact the brewery in advance and see if theyíll make arrangements to entertain you. Otherwise you might be really disappointed. The out-of-the-way location and occasionally sporadic hours can be annoying when you show up and canít even get in.

Just getting around to logging some of my Place ratings. Have be in Hair of the dog 2 times. The first was great. Alan gave me and my wife a tour of the place. Let me sample all of the Great stuff he has there. Even the GREAT DAVE WOW. The second was a quick stop picked up a case of some 07 stuff. Alan is a great guy. If you are in Portland YOU HAVE TO STOP IN. I wish we could get some HOTD stuff in Boise.

There is only one bad thing about this place, other than that it is a marvel and an incredibily exciting place if you like amazing beer. The one complaint is that the Brewery is pretty cold inside, but that complaint is minor, Alan came in and gave us a tour and tasting that lasted 2 hours on New Years Eve 07 and it was pretty incredible. Great beers including trying some killer beers that are in the process of maturing. This place is a must if your in Portland. And honestly it wasnít too hard to find.

Really tucked away in a corner of an old industrial park right next to the river. I wouldnít recommend missing coming here if youíre even remotely a fan. Itís amazing what Alan has done with Hair of the Dog, and he was a very pleasant host. The man is a true craft brewer. We were there on brew day - - Fred. I wish I couldíve hung out and bent Alanís ear for a bit longer, but heís quite a busy guy, doing nearly everything except bottling all by himself. Fascinating and very highly recommended stop in Portland. You have to call ahead of time, though, and follow the directions on the web site closely.

Donít miss a tour when Alan has the smoker up and running. HOTD beers and smoked tri-tip plus picking Alanís brain and visiting the winery next door... this was one of the highlights of my trip. I missed Oakes however even though he was there.

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.

This is a TOP 5 Brewery for me. Impossible to find. It is hidden in the back, front, around the corner and then hidden some more behind/within some kind of industrial area. But a must visit. I always will when in PDX. Alan has the most amazing talent in the business. So holds barred.
It is very tiny and very simple. But thatís all it takes. I remember a banana tree growing in the middle of the place. It added the right amoung of color to the atmosphere. I had the extreme pleasure of trying DAVE whlie I was there during the 2004 OBF. Long live HOTD!

Made my way here on a Monday afternoon shortly after the bottled release of Fred from the Wood--GO BUY IT. This place is challenging to find to say the very least. There is a stairwell from the sidewalk on the main little drag that brings you to 24th ave--TAKE IT. Signage is also not overly large. Very small, industrial garage-like feel thatís not all that different from Alesmith. Once inside, I met up with Alan--I didnít realize that this was basically a 1 man-show. We chatted for about 15-20 minutes and offered me some samples from the 5 or so samples on the wall. There were also some vintage bottles for sale as well. He was brewing and gave me a really quick tour, which is easy due to the operation being very small. I didnít want to bother him while he was busy brewing, so I basically bought a couple of bottles and let him go onto producing his great beer. Unfortunately, this place is rated as the top place in all of Portland, and it clearly is not. I think this is due to people giving it a perfect score for food when it doesnít even serve food. Alan mentioned that he was going to be decreasing his distribution because he is currently brewing at full capacity and local sales are good enough that it does not make fiscal sense to distribute to 15 states any more.

I enjoyed myself here and it is very hard to find and let me repeat that very hard to find. Alan is a great host it is amazing he brews such great beers on such a mickey mouse system reminds me of Fantome and that is a good thing as both DanyP and Alan love beer.
