Hair of the Dog just recently opened its tasting room at its new Yamhill location and the response has been great! I went there last night with my wife for the first time and will be repeat customers in the future.

It was a nice day yesterday so the front roll up door to the tasting room was open to allow a nice breeze in. The location itself is near a train crossing and in the span of a few hours we had to hold our conversation for half a minute while the train went by. The train and industrial feel to the place lent to a certain counter-culture feel that will receive a ton of support from beer geeks and HotD fans. There was a central bar and several tables around the perimeter. The restrooms were easy to spot and accessible unlike a couple tasting rooms I've visited.

Our waitress was extremely attentive and quick to bring us our drinks. Alan Sprints was there in the kitchen but seemed approachable for any beer related banter. It was a family affair for him as well because a couple young boys the spitting image of him were walking around the room as well.

The beer! For $12 Misty and I shared a half dozen 3 ounce taster glasses of the HotD beers available on tap. Greg, Blue Dot, Fred, Adam, and 2007 Doggie Claws were all great but the 1 beer that we both needed our very own 12 ounce tulip of was Fred from the Wood. For $6.50 a piece I got to try for the first time I beer I called "my new favorite beer" in my review. While that is a little spendy for beer in Portland, I think it was absolutely worth it. Apparently last week Cherry Adam was on tap in its place so expect that sixth tap to be an ever changing one.

Go to Hair of the Dog, get a beer, and enjoy one of Portland's finest. To that extent, if its one of Portland's finest, its in the elite list for the planet!
