Good vibe, friendly staff. Decent size, garage type feel. Good selection, had a couple flights before getting some pints of their strong stuff. Also had two of their specialty brews they had available.

Visited on a Sunday just before noon. I had flown in from DC to meet a friend. We drove to HOTD directly from the airport. We sat at the bar.

V - Definitely a beer vibe. Bright, open, clean. An nice bar with tables both inside and out. 4

Q - Great glassware. All of it clean. Beer at the brewery does not get any better. 4.5

Ser - Above average, but the bartender was a bit surly. Frankly not too helpful either. Sort of had an expectation that I should know everything there is to know about the place, etc. 3.25

Sel - Besides having great beer, HOTD has a good selection of styles available as well. So even though there were no guess taps, there was plenty of choices for any beer drinker. They also have wine, but of course some of their beer has very vinous qualities to begin with. 4.5

Located in an alright area of Portland, HoTD offers a very cool space converted from a garage. The entire brewery is open space. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable during my visit and really helped better appreciate some of the special brews available on tap. The food was a very pleasant surprise. Definitely worth a visit.

Located in an industrial district, the brewery fits in nicely and doesn't do anything pretentious, yet it has a great selection of current and vintage offerings, good food and very hospitable to kids.

walking here and finally arriving felt like a great lifelong dream had been realized, a pilgrimage completed. the beer and vibes inside did not disappoint! wow! cool place, tiny system, wrap around bar, some outside seating, avant garde art on the walls, and a beer list to rival any i have ever seen. one of the original makers of these elite level strong ales, it was great to finally get to drink all these famous beers. place was really hopping, but the service was attentive and helpful, fun and knowledgeable, and really cool to chat to. i think she was the sister of a brewer or something, cool lady. in any event, all the beers were amazing. i loved the 2008 matt from the vintage list, otto, and fred from the stone, but all the beers were amazing. pretty cool they keep all these old bottles around, and they really arent that expensive for what you get. cool glassware too. we had a meat and cheese board and it was filling and delicious and nicely curated, a perfect companion to a lot of these big interesting beers. i cant say enough about this place. it blows my mind how much they have been able to accomplish for themselves on such a little system. this is an absolutely must visit brewery, possibly my single favorite from my recent oregon trip. absolutely not to be missed.
