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.

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.
