This place is what I thought it would be...I've heard great things about the new taproom and I was not dissapointed in the least. On my recent trip to PDX this is the one place I knew I didn't want to gome home without visiting. I've had many Hair of the Dog beers in the past and thought they were all the bees-knees. So we visited hair of the dog after a heavy night of pub crawling in PDX....cause you have to be hung over to visit a place called Hair of the Dog. This place is the ultimate beer snob brewery...they serve nothing that is even mediocre...everything here is top notch. I had an Adam beer which was excellent then a couple Blue Dot's the second was from a newly tapped keg and there was tons of hops floating around in the beer....was the best IPA i think I have ever had...I want to move to PDX because of this place!!

Decided to make a stop by Hair of the Dog during my winter vacation to Oregon and it was awesome!
Atmosphere: located in the industrial area of Portland, the neighborhood does not have much eye candy to offer. Yet, looks can be deceiving since this area has some amazing breweries hidding. Unlike the downtown area, parking is easy and the brewery is easy to spot. The inside is a basic warehouse with a bar and tables. Nothing over the top by def enjoyable.
Brews: Hair of the Dog offers awesome drinks. Most have a hoppy taste minus the trademark hoppy bitterness. If you like the malty sweetness, you will be very surprised by these brews. We ordered tasters of all brews available: Fred, Ruth, Adam, Blue Dot, and Doggie Claws.
Food: the food was awesome. We ordered a plate of pickled vegetables (we were told that they had been pickled by a local deli). I have never enjoyed myself so much over pickled anything before. We also order a delicious Brisquet. Probably one of the best Brisquets I have tried. To wrapped things up, we finished our meal with the Bread Pudding (the sauce was based with Doggie Claws beer). If you like Hair of the Dog Doggie Claws, you are going to love this Bread Pudding.
Service: the service was amazing. The bartender was witty, which a great knowledge over the beers. She was patient and talkative. What makes things better, we ended paying $24 for all the food and drinks we consumed. Nothing says great brewery more than a place that truly caters to the consumer.
If I have anything to be critical about this place, it would their operation hours. It is opened between 3pm to 8pm. If you can over look this minor oddity, then you have a great stop waiting for you.
