Q: What is a "Dog Tap House"?

It’s a Tap Room for great craft beer and food, but…also rescue dogs that live in the bar till adopted. In other words…Dog Tap House. Main features are:

1) 40 rotating taps of great craft beer, wine & Cider.   2) A food menu not typically seen in a craft beer bar to include flat breads, rice bowls, hot dogs and more. 3) A “Day Room” where patrons can play with or adopt a rescue dog provided by Oregon Friends Of Shelter Animals.  4) Our TV’s feature sports, and fun, educational shows about dogs.  5) Charity partnerships. We promote their missions and host their events for free. 6) A huge, beautiful patio for you and your “best friend”.

Fido’s is all about connecting people with craft beer, great food, the love of dogs and helping charities.

 

Q: Where did the idea come from?

A:   A local taproom and Cat Cafe, got us thinking…What could be more Portland than Craft Beer, Food, Dogs and Charities?

Q: Are there any other Dog Tap Houses in Oregon or other states?

A: No. Fido’s is the first craft beer tap room of its kind in the world.

Q: Can I play with the dogs?

A:   Yes. Sign a liability release form then we charge $4/30 minutes to enter. This fee is very important to help cover our costs and support charities. Tuesday nights from 6pm – close, buy a pint of great craft beer, cider or glass of wine and the puppy time is free. All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian and there are heavy restrictions for children 12 & younger so please call if you have questions.

Q: How much does it cost to adopt Fido?

A:   Oregon Friends Of Shelter Animals (OFOSA), charges $300 for 1 yr plus in age, $350 for less than one year. This covers Fidos spay/neuter, up to date shots and micro chip.

Q: Can I Bring My Dog To Fido's?

A: Our location does have an outdoor patio, suitable for you to bring your family Fido. The Health Code does not permit pets, other than registered service animals to enter the actual eating / drinking establishment. Please be considerate of the fact that we are fostering dogs “on site”. This is their home and they will get anxious when they see other dogs approach.

A: Absolutely. Minors are allowed every where except for the counter seats at the main bar.

Q: Will Fido's help Non-Profit groups that help dogs?

A:   ABSOLUTELY. We will partner with them to make guests aware of their missions and to showcase their unique services. We want to have demonstrations by: Guide Dogs For The Blind. Search & Rescue Groups, and many others. Finally, we will make regular donations to a wide variety of charities.
