FAQs

Q: What is a "Dog Tap House"?

It’s a Tap Room for great craft beer, and “Foster” home for rescue dogs. In other words…Dog Tap House. Main features are:

1) 30 rotating taps of great craft beer.   2) A “Day Room” where patrons can play with or adopt a rescue dog provided by Oregon Friends Of Shelter Animals.  3) Enjoy an environment dedicated to dogs and rescue charities. 4) Sports on TV? We will switch channels when asked, but most of the time our TV’s will play dog videos from YouTube, Animal Planet, etc. 5) Charity partnerships. We will promote their missions and events for free. 6) Events on the patio. Art Shows, Dog Trainer Demonstrations, Meet A Veterinarian, or say hello to a local dog hero. 7) Beer signs? Nope…not one. Fido’s is dogs on steroids.

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, Shelter Dogs and Charities?

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

A: No. Fido’s will be the first of its kind in the world. We estimate opening in November 2017. This date will be adjusted as our “build out” progresses.

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”, and they need a home.

Q: Can I Bring My Children?

A: Absolutely. In fact, upon entering Fido’s, you will be thrilled to see that there is not one beer or alcohol sign in our space. It is truly a temple to dogs.

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.

Q: Can I work at Fido's?
