No can do - have never, ever seen a HOTD beer in this area. Enjoy.
You almost certainly won't get it in time for the tasting, but they do ship. Well worth it in my opinion.
Even if you're not aware, all you have to do is read the very first sentence: "Hair of the Dog is closing for good on June 26th."
If someone wants to trade me something so I can participate…hook me up!
You been readin' my mail...
I found some HOTD at Target in San Fransisco a couple of years ago, a complete fluke. Fred, Adam, Doggie Claws - did not like any of them.
Sorry to hear they are closing though. Any insights as to why?
Alan Sprints retires, Hair of the Dog closing
I've been to the brew pub twice and peeked in the windows of the previous brewery location when I couldn't find a time to meet Alan there (although he was willing) with my work schedule. I'm from PA but was in Portland off-and-on over the years to help at our plant there. Blue Dot was revolutionary for me and I first got it at a gas station(!) down the street from my work location. Definitely a favorite brewer. I've got some Fred, Adam and 2 different Doggie Claw years in my fridge. Sorry to see Alan retire but he's doing it in style. Glad to participate in this event.
I just placed an order for a sampler 12 pack and 12 bottles of Adam. It was seemless and I got 10% off for over $100, but christ on a cracker was shipping expensive! Good thing for my wallet this is literally the last time I will be able to do this.
I hit the 20% threshold with my last order and that made me feel better about the shipping cost. Completely irrational I know...
Will probably stop by the tasting room one last time on Saturday and Sunday. I'm assuming the place will be packed (it was last weekend).
Alan has been there in the tasting room quite a bit of late. I'm assuming he'll be there on Saturday and Sunday as well.
I couldn't bring myself to do it because of the shipping price. I stared at my cart from yesterday until today..i had Adam once and it was ok but not something i would pay 30 dollars to to me.
That being said i am excited to crack this 2015 Putin i have on one of the tasting days. I grabbed two so i hope it was worth the price tag ( 21.99 plus CA tax [ 9.5%] )
Sorry to miss this HotD tasting - really enjoyed my last visit there (ok, years ago!) and sad to see it won't be around. But I'll be on the road with no options to participate. Enjoy, people!
I will be there Sunday when the doors close. Hope you will join me John!
I enjoyed my Putin same vintage.
You can count on it Jeff. What time are you planning to arrive?
Alright, this kicks off tomorrow. If anyone over does it tonight and needs a little Hair of the Dog tomorrow morning, be sure to post here! I'll be chiming in later in the day.
Found 2 bottles today so I'm looking forward to this.
Let me guess, Fred and Doggie Claws right? I think you'll like 'em.
You win a rubber cigar. Fred and Blue Dot. With vintage dust!
