“Seriously, try the pickles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We just had drinks at Hair of the Dog as part of a (rather disconcerting) pedicab tour. The beers were delightful and the small plates were delish. We especially liked the Brussels Sprouts! Go figure. The pickles were perfectly spiced and vinegary - bright and savoury!

“Great beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My second time there. Arrived just at opening. Awesome food and better beer! Friendly staff as well let you sample if you're not sure what you getting. Out of the way, but well worth the effort.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Perhaps this is a worthwhile stop if the beer is the object, but the food and atmosphere didn't impress us at all. My husband ordered a vegetarian dish which he pronounced "totally bland -- the kind of thing I'd end up making for myself if I was on my own." (He doesn't cook.) My smoked salmon sandwich was adequate and the brown bread very nice, but to be honest, given the less-than-salubrious location, we won't hurry back.

“Gotta get there if you love beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We spent a great couple of hours sitting at this bar and meeting beer lovers from near and far. We shared the tasting flight and then ordered a pint of our favorites. The beer was complex and delicious. We were not expecting anything above ordinary pub fare to accompany our beer, and the big surprise was the delicious duck confit.

“A Must Stop For Pub Hopping Enthusiasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Good lively scene and well balanced beer. This is a must stop place for beer enthusiasts. They let us choose 5 beers for the tasting flight, and our favorite was the "Doggie Claws 2011" shown far right in the photo I added.
