A-Hair is located just across the bridge from downtown in a slightly industrial (but hip-ish) area of Portland. The tasting room has the light-industrial feel common to many breweries with tall ceilings, lots of windows, a decent sized bar with seating for close to 20, a dozen big tables, and an exposed kitchen. It is a bit sparten, and it was very quiet around 6:45 pm on a Tuesday night, but it fits with the neighborhood and its comfortable.

Q-This was my first experience with Hair beers and I was mostly impressed. I tried their flagship beers, as well as one of their lesser-known beers and all were tasty. Fred, in particular, earns the reputation is has for a delicious big-ass beer.

Ser-My server was friendly, prompt, knowledgable about the beers she was pouring, and took care to pour the beer correctly. She even gave me a paper towel to wipe the rain off (only an idiot walks around Portland without an umbrella....).

Sel-The tap selection is pretty small (seven beers when I visited) and limited to Hair beers. They had growler fills and a few bottle selections to take away, again all Hair beers. A few more special/one-off beers on tap would have been nice. The vintage bottle list was pretty good sized.

F-The food is cheap and isn't trying to pretend that this place is for fine dining. I had a turkey sandwich with smoked mozzarella, and although the turkey was good, the rest of the dish was a little plain. While I sort of enjoyed the simplicity of my chips and sandwich, it was pretty damn simple.

V-This place has a neighborhood feel and prices to match. Good value for beer and food. Some of the vintage bottles could get pricy but the taps were cheap.

O-A nice, laid-back vibe with great beer and simple food. What is not to like?

Vibe is great, food is average for Portland, beer selection in house is great but you can rarely get any good ale to go.

Service was average and not exceptionally friendly. Food (granted I only visited once) was poor. But the beer. Oh, the beer. One of my favorite breweries.
