A dozen drafts ranging from a 3.2% English Mild to double digit barrel aged stout. I was part of a group that set up a tasting flight 3 oz. of each draft. All were fine. It was a bit difficult for me to keep track of everything due to the group dynamics. The food menu is broader than the typical pub group fare. The cheese & meat plates were excellent complements to the tasting flight. Young, hip crowd.

The location is an easy hop across the Williamette River. Worth a visit when in Portland.

Hair of the Dog is in an industrial area of town, and has the appearance of being in a not so big warehouse. They definitely pull off the industrial vibe very well, and I thought the atmosphere was really interesting.

The beers were all good, but the naming is a bit unorthodox - beers were named Little Dog, Ruth, Lila, Blue Dot, Will, Fred, Adam. I had the taster flight (Ruth - Pale Ale, Lila - Maibock, Fred - Golden Strong Ale, and Adam - A dark smoky beer). The beers were all well made and real good across the board, but the Adam and Fred were 10% ABV and, since it was my 3rd brewery of the day, things started getting hazy around this time. It's a good thing I was jotting down ratings as I went....

Our goal this morning was the appropriately named Hair Of The Dog Brewing Company, recommended strongly by my friend Andrew and sundry others as a must-visit. The brewery is located in a somewhat shady industrial area of town, in the shadow of the massive overpasses and just a block away from a cardboard box shanty-town. I wouldn't want to visit here in the evening, but this time of day it was just starting to fill up with a mixture of locals and other beer tourists. It has an old warehouse feel, with hanging salmon tapestries adding a bit of color and decoration.

We tried individual samples of all the beers, served in a very cool stemware cordial glass (which we bought to take home with us.) Every beer was good, but the very best was the Adam: a dark ale with a smoke, leather and sweet complexity to it, reminiscent of Surly Smoke. The Winter seasonal Doggie Claws from 2012 was an amazing aged barleywine. The Fred From the Wood sampling that particular day was aged on peaches and lacked carbonation, making it taste more like a peach mead, but I'm not complaining! A great experience and not to be missed if you are in Portland.

Every time I go to HOD I can't believe how hard it is to find. But, the effort is worth it.
Just a crazy place with great beer. If your lucky they will have Fred on the Wood.
I was at the birthday party for Fred Echardt and in addition to HOD beer local Oregon breweries brought special beer to celebrate Fred.
Only serving during open house events that are held 3 to 4 times a year. Go to the website and make the effort to visit HOD.

Alan was a great host for our tour. PDX Brewers: We came saw and conquered the brewery. Alan opened his establishment for a special night time tour and this was fantastic. A brewery that was not so far out of touch with us Homebrewers. His system all built by him and friends was awesome and really made us see the process and what and where we are with ours. He gave samples and told us the history of his brewery that made you feel he really wanted us to be a part of his story. This is one brewer that takes the cake for being a true Gentlemen. Alan I hold my glass up to you my friend. Hoppy Brewing!!!
