Fremont calls their tasting room an "urban beer garden." I see it as more of a warehouse brewery with an open seating area. The painted cinder block, fluorescent lighting, and buzzing glycol cooler don't fit the bill for "garden", urban or otherwise. The tasting room is partitioned from the brewery by a lounge-like array of red leather seats and centers on a long beer hall-type bench made from the salvaged planks of a local high school sporting arena. Service is limited to four house beers, no guests or cask, and free pretzels. Prepared food is not served.

Fremont's limited beer offerings make any defining assessment difficult to pin down. Of their four taps, three may be concurrently serving the same beer in different ways such as draught, nitro, and dry-hopped. Quality varies.

It would seem the brewery is still working on self-definition. They're new, young, and enjoy an ideal location. Local artwork adorns the walls and the staff is friendly to a fault. We'll see where it goes. Meanwhile, be advised that the garage bay remains open during business hours assuring indoors temperatures are the same as those outdoors. (1,139 characters)

Overall ok place. Selection was fairly limited. Was looking for beers to try. The ones I tried were very good though. (117 characters)

Selection was average but it had some interesting taps in the mix also. 5 of the Fremont beers available, plus two beers being served through a Randall (an infuser) one with ginger, grapefruit and centennial hops the other with cucumber. There was also a guest tap with chuckanut pils available.

Service was quick and helpful in answering a few questions on the beers. With in influx in people after we got our first round we only had to wait a few minutes to get our second at the bar inside. Overall good service.

The vibe was laid back and would be a spot I would frequent if I was a resident of the neighborhood. Big picknick tables and a beer garden feel with lots of areas. Right across from a cool bike path that passes buy Google and a few other big tech companies.

The beers themselves were solid, nothing stellar or stand out for me but certainly no duds in the bunch. I tried the IPA through the randall and the girl had the pale ale through the cucumber. Also got the Chuckanut so I can't comment on the other beers.

Good spot overall and worth seeking out if you're in the Fremont area of Seattle (1,113 characters)

Great vibe. Nice outdoor seating in a great location in Fremont. The service is always nice and down to earth. Free apples, pretzels, and free non-alcoholic beverages for my kids. Awesome place with world-class beer. (220 characters)

Great beers and a nice beer hall vibe but make sure you get some food to carry in before you enjoy too many brews. The good news on that front is that there's plenty of restaurants within walking distance to pick up from. (221 characters)

Will never leave Seattle again without stopping in. Lots of beers on tap, cool layout, outdoor seating and away from downtown. Parking is a bit challenging though. (163 characters)
