Fourth stop on our walking tour of the SE. Picnic tables outdoors, nice big bar with a/c indoors. Took a couple of seats at the bar and were served ice water before we could even say Hello. Nice.

We decided to order a taster flight which included Lila, Ruth Fred and Adam. We enjoyed all of these beers. If you are researching for a trip here, include this stop. We are huge IPA fans and didn't know if Hotd beers would be for us, but the answer is YES. Followed up with a pint of the Blue Dot IPA. Different, but really good. A nice respite from all of the beer we had had so far on our visit. The service was attentive and friendly.

We bought two bombers of the Blue Dot to share back home, and a nice tulip glass. (719 characters)

This place was everything I hoped it would be. Cool atmosphere, good service and great beer. My only minor complaint would be that a couple more options on tap would have been good, but HOTD isn't known for having a huge lineup of beer. Was very happy to find a barrel aged Adam variant. A MUST visit in PDX. (314 characters)

Good vibe, seems like any typical Portland microbrewery. Hipster crowd, old crowd, Rough crowd and everybody else. I tried Adam and White Peach Adam. Adam is a fantastic beer, I won't go into detail. White Peach Adam is on a whole different level of awesome! It's rediculous, the two bar tenders didn't seem very friendly. They should be aittle more engaging and crack a smile every now and then. I didn't try the food, but everyone around me swore by it. I'll be back. (470 characters)

We were in town for the Oregon Brewer's Festival, this was a must-stop on our list of breweries to hit - and they certainly didn't disappoint. My first time having Fred, Adam, Adam of the Wood - etc. A massive selection of brews to pick from including rarities of varying vintages. The food kicks ass too. The bartender was quick and helpful. Absolute blast. Wish this NC boy lived closer. (389 characters)

I visited Hair of the Dog yesterday while in town for the waterfront blues festival. I like the neat wood-meets-factory space and the thick central bar. Their selection is interesting, with only 7 taps plus a guest but an excellent selection of bottles, mostly cellared versions of their own big beers. Someday I would like to return when I'm with a group so that we can split and sample some of these (they are pricy -- hard for me to justify drinking a $30 rare beer by myself).

I had the maibock, which was quite refreshing on this very hot weekend. I also had the mac 'n' cheese, which was a bit over-salted but in general very good. (644 characters)
