That Bit Ya

Hair of the Dog brewing is closing, because the owner wishes to retire. And I get that.

I can’t help but feel that this is the end of an era though, in Portland beer. Or maybe just a changing of the guard? Hair of the Dog was a small operation and undoubtedly worked because of the vision of the founder.

Someone else will come along and I hope the community is willing to make room for them.

In the meantime, we can certainly toast the work and legacy of Hair of the Dog: they helped put Portland on the map in regards to our respect in the craft beer world, and that is worth celebrating.
