An interesting layout in an interesting location. The brewery/brewpub and newish biergartern are located right on 34th street, very near the cross street of Stone. The outside patio area is good size, with a considerable number of tables and chairs. Inside the pub, there are additional tables and chairs, along with some stadium type bench seats as well. There are two seperate bar areas in the pub, and on the day I was here, there was something like 15 or so beers on tap at each bar. Selection was superb, and included several versions of cowiche freah hop, KDS, beer 1000, sister and brother IPA's, etc. The vibe is very informal and laid back, and the staff seemed quite friendly and knowledgeable. Prices were likewise pretty decent. Pints of most beers were in the $5 to $6 range , and with the KDS, you could get a 6, 8 or 12 ounce pour, priced at $4, $5 or $6 I believe. I don't think they do sample trays or glasses here.

As others have noted, the new brewpub and biergarten are child and dog friendly. Opinions are going differ as to whether this is something you're going to like or not. On the day I was here, I wasn't much bothered by the dog presence (some smelled like they were in need of a bath, but all of them were friendly and there were no fights). On the other hand, there were a number of small children playing with their toys on the floor of the inside pub, right where patrons were standing in line to get their beer. No one was hurt or injured from what I could tell, but I could easily see it happen. Also, while the dogs were all friendly on the day I was here, predictably, some owners actually placed their medium sized dogs on the tables to show them off to friends and other dog fans. Shrug. It is what it is. Customers can decide for themselves whether this is something that will keep them away or not.

Otherwise, this place is great, and the beer made by Fremont is uniformly excellent. I would add that in addition to the prefilled growlers and growler fill take out I saw, they also had a good size can and bottle retail selection going as well (4 packs of sisters DIPA were selling like hotcakes the day I was here). I'll certainly be back at some point.

This was a very close second favorite of mine out of all the breweries/brew pubs we visited during our Pacific NW trip (Russian River was #1). Since they expanded (and looks like they will continue to expand), it has turned into a very nice beer garden.

Outside is all community, beer garden type seating. Pets Welcome. It is all traditional tap room service getting pours at the bar. They only do full pours, but everything they had on tap was great, so I didn't mind. They also have pre-filled growlers to go as well as cans for sale. There were not any bottles on sale when I visited. It was a busy happy hour crowd, but they have several bartenders working, so any line that formed moved fast. No food, but they did have free pretzels.

Overall, this was a favorite of mine. Would be very happy to go back anytime.

Fantastic place! I had a Brother IIPA, a Dry Fly Bourbon Abominable and their Summer Ale. All stellar beers. Open seating at big tables inside and out. I wish they served some type of food. They were building out next door, I can't wait to go back and check it out.

I've been to Fremont more than any other brewery. They always have some outstanding beers, it's a great place to meet friends (whether we bring the kids or not, doesn't matter, because Fremont is cool like that) and the Urban Beer Garden is great. Line can be a little long and service a little slow sometimes, but Fremont has quickly become a must-visit Seattle beer destination. They deserve all their success and I hope they just keep doing what they've been doing.
