Great beers, not much doubt about that. But I’ve 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 “the scene”. 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 they’ll 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 can’t even get in.

I come here every year for Fredfest and sometimes in between. There is a nice horseshoe bar with a dozen or so taps of excellent to great beers. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. This is one of the Portland beer geek centers. Kudos to Allen.

J’aimerais pouvoir dire à quel point j’ai eu de la difficulté à quitter la brasserie tellement c’était transcendant mais ça serait mentir. La sélection était triste à voir mis à part quelques vintage ou variantes de Fred ou Adam mais à fort prix. C’était pas l’idéal de choisir HOTD pour débuter la journée vu que le seul brassin à moins de 5% était à sec. Apparemment que la cuisine est exceptionnelle.

Pretentious, slow service, and the food was better than the beer. Tasting room looked exceptional if you want to drop $70 on a 12 oz pour. All in all Hair of the Dog is a legendary brewery, with massive abstract brews. A must go for any beer fiend.

Small selection of HotD brews, which were all great. Great food, decent value. Didn’t live up to the hype, but definitely worth stopping by.

A small brewpub with large beers - the history of the brewery and the relaxed ambience make this a favourite spot to bring visiting friends. Their beers are almost all delicious, from the classics such as the heavy Adam and the sweet Fred to their rotating selection of new and unique brews. A small yet tasty menu compliments the drinks as well. I recommend the Chuck Norris Duck Wings.

Stopped here on the way from the Gorge to Lake Tahoe. I had 5 vintages of Doggie Claws side by side dating from 2008-2013 (one was missing) and a glass of Adam. A must stop for sure.

Visited on our trip to Portland. Of course, lived up to the hype. Had a lot of the regulars and some of other barrel aged and seasonal beers on. Great layout, bar was large and spacious. We got tasters of everything in their famous taster glasses. We had the wings which were also spicy but awesome and enjoyed a bowl of chili. The vintage list excellent and enjoyed of Matt 2010 tasting unbelievable and Cherry Adam from the Wood also tasting awesome. Bought some items to go which were also reasonably priced. Definitely a top notch beer destination with great food, great service and obviously great beer.

came here for beer and dinner on a weeknight. on street parking was abundant and i even got to walk rr track. large open seating area with a somewhat small bar. it took a little bit of time for service until the place cleared a little.beer selection was their regulares plus fred from the wood. more bottles for onsite consumption. i ordered tge dteak sandwich which was excellent. 1 full size beer, 4 tasters, dinner was $20 before gratuity. very cool gwant.

Hot diggity damn, this place is awesome. The quality of beer you get here is consistently amazing, and (assuming you like the styles) you will not be disappointed. The food is decent, but nothing special. My only complaint is that I’d like to see more variety in beers and styles, but I understand their business model enough to appreciate it. The vintage bottles they have available, while expensive, are completely worth it, as they are expertly brewed and aged. No complaints, and I’d happily come back.
