Great Beer. All of their beers are BIG. Barleywine, Imperials, etc. the good was fresh and local. Limited food menu but yummy. The beer is the showcase. Make sure you are not driving, as the beer is so tasty and high octane.
I am definitely planning on a return.

The selection of vintage bottles was awesome, very tough to figure out which one we were going to try out, considering how pricey each of these were it was gonna be limited.

The server was fantastic with his knowledge of each brew and was quick on whatever we needed.

The food was not all that good from the feedback i got from my friends, however the chili was fantastic.

The only thing i wish was different is if they had a better selection of being able to take home vintage bottles… the selections were all for in-room consumption only… and the bottles to go available weren't exactly appealing. I get it though, the vintage tasting is part of the experience of stopping by there.

Overall fantastic brew and experience.

The wife and I stopped at Hair of the Dog on a bright, sunny Sunday morning in January. Winters in Portland sure are nicer than in New York City! A beautifully renovated industrial space, sort of like a massive loft. Airy and sun-filled, and pretty empty to boot. I like the atmosphere and would hang out here often if I lived in Portland.

Outrageous beers on tap, including Doggie Claws '09 and '13, Adam, Little Dog, Greg, Fred and a special "Brandy Barrel Fred with Strawberry". The selection of bottles is to die for: Fred from the Wood, Bourbon Fred, Michael, Otto, Collage, Matt, Cherry Adam, Adam from the Wood 2011 (this one cost me twenty bucks but was rather delicious). Some bottles to go: Otto, Adam, Fred.

Basic food, we just had a simple plate of bread and butter. Service was rather sad. So bad that my wife and I had to laugh. The bartender was either annoyed or rude or hangover or all of the above, but he sure was not nice. His face made it clear that he was not happy to serve me, and he bitched my wife out for using the little tasting glasses as cups for her non-toxic painting water. It was ludicrous.

Shit is pricey here, but so worth. The beers are truly unique and incredible, and the space is so nice and comfy. I'll forget the bad service and can't wait to go back!
