I came for the Doggie Claws, I stayed for the Mac & Cheese.

Visiting Portland last weekend, the Hair of the Dog was my first stop. I am currently on a Barleywine kick and I have been excited about trying Doggie Claws.

Someone in the past here mentioned that the taproom looked like an old warehouse in an industrial part of town. It does look like an old warehouse for sure, but the interior and the surrounding neighborhood feel more like an area of town that is being revitalized. It is quite a comfortable, open and bright space with a view of downtown Portland out of the giant window on the western wall.

The quality of the beer overall was excellent. In addition to my big tulip glass for of Doggie Claws I also had the "Walk the Dog" flight of Adam, Fred, Blue Dot and Little Dog. It was $7 for 3oz. pours of each.

The bartender was fairly busy while she worked, but was still able to take the time to discuss each beer in the flight when she dropped it off. After a brief conversation with her, she was also kind enough to add a 3oz. pour of the Adam from the Wood. I also had time to chat with one of the managers there who was very informative and hospitable.

The selection was a bit underwhelming, only eight beers on tap. There was a small bottle list as well, which included '05 and '07 Doggie Claws for only $15 a bottle. Some other aged selections were there as well and they all seemed reasonably priced. The problem, however, was that I had a busy weekend planned and I could not manage to get back to the taproom before 8:00 on Thursday and 10:00 on the Friday or Saturday. The very early close was a bit of a disappointment.

Anyhow, on to the food - which was a pleasant surprise. I went for the mac & cheese with pancetta. At $10 it seemed a bit pricey, but my portion was enormous, filling and very tasty. The pancetta was a small let down, not as flavorful as I thought, but the rest of the cheesy, breadcrumbed bowl of pasta was worth the $10.

If you're in Portland, make a stop.
