I really did dig it here. Itís in an industrial area with not much else immediately around, but it has just the vibe that I like. The bar area is well spaced out with a good amount of seats that wrap around. There are also a good amount of tables to sit at and Iíd have a hard time imagining this place getting extremely packed. Itís a really nice brew list that they have. They have a good amount of their brews on tap along with having aged bottles of theirs as well. The food was also pretty good as well. I got a grilled cheese sandwich and really enjoyed it. The bartender was nice and it was never a problem getting a beer. This shot right up onto my revisit list.

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.

Hair of the Dog is located in what I would call a ďtransitionalĒ neighborhood of Portland. The building was obviously something else before Hair of the Dog took residence as is evident from the garage door on the side. The indoor seating is plentiful and the feel is open. The bar is nice and offers seating for approximately 20 people. The service was outstanding; very knowledgeable and friendly bartender. The selection was limited to Hair of the Dog beers but various vintages that you would not find anywhere else were offered. I heard great things about the food but I did not eat there. Overall, one of the finest taprooms you will find because it is one of the finest breweries.

What a great place. When you taste the beer, all you can say is, "Wow." Had some really good bread to go with our beer. Iíll definitely come back here next time Iím in Portland.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon - cool open feel with a horseshoe bar. The bartender was friendly and knew a ton about HOD and other local brews. There was 2008 Fred from the Wood on tap and finally got to taste my namesake brew, Matt. The smells from the kitchen were enticing and the brisket quite tasty. A must visit if youíre in Portland and within walking distance of Cascade and Green Dragon.

A large, airy, semi-industrial yet pleasant decor. Swimming pool acoustics (seems as if you can hear every conversation in the place). Brewery visible in the back through a window. Kitchen area along one wall. Very friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. Seven HOTD brews were on tap. Currently offering a sampler of four (Greg, Blue Dot, Fred, and Adam) for $7. Limited but good menu w/ some tasty snacks (cheese plate, meat plate). Bottle of earlier vintages are available for consumption on premises only (e.g., first vintage of Adam (í94) for $75), but these can also be bought and taken out at the APEX bar not too far away. Although the selection is limited to HOTD, my high score is based on the quality of the beers available. All are good, and most are truly great.This is a must for beer lovers in Portland. Some of the very best beers in town made by one of the finest brewers around.

Minus points for a location out of the way of other beer establishments, but this beer is seriously some of the best in the World. You can find "Mike" and others on tap that you struggle to find bottled in the stores

Great place. Excellent service. Lots of stuff to have for fair prices. Bottles of Cherry Adam, Matt, Michael more. Had a Little Adam and Greg on tap. Very fun place and easy to find. A worthy mecca.

Didnít have the food here although I wish I had. Their Chuck Norris spicy duck wings were making my mouth water. What I did have were some excellent beers in a really classy tasting room. Got a flight of their standards, Ruth Fred and Adam along with a taster of their Blue Dot DIPA. After thoroughly enjoying those, I treated myself to a bottle of 2009 Michael Flanders red. Well worth the price as Iíd not ever seen that beer out in the wild. I enjoyed it thoroughly. As I was paying my tab and getting ready to leave the server told me sheíd feel awful if she let me get out of there without trying the Fred from Wood. Oh man. I could have kissed her. What an amazing beer. Definitely a must stop if youíre in Portland. Even if youíre not. Go there.

Single-handily made the price of a ticket to Portland worth the money! Food is very well priced and of much higher quality than anything Iíve ever seen at a brewpub, I mean that. Beer....What to say, 3 ounce tasters of everything make the night a lot of fun. Until of course those little glasses turn into big ones when you start to order off the ridiculous bottle selection. Apparently Mr. Sprints has kept every beer heís ever made! Yes, I did splurge for the Adam batch 1, yes the Michael as well and the Matt. A 6 year Doggie claws? Yes. 6 hours later and a very tender cab ride home, things were right with the world. Excellent service, certainly felt that we were family and friends even though I live 3,000 miles away. Beer clean glassware and proper pouring as well. If you donít stop in when your in Portland, delete your account from this website.
