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.

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.

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.

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.

I visited the Fremont taproom for the first time on Saturday and I was quite pleased with the experience. They had at least a dozen beers on tap, with tasters clocking in at a very reasonable $1. It's a popular place, with lots of folks with kids and babies (frankly, I'd never seen so many babies in a taproom before), so be prepared for a bit of a family atmosphere. The décor is quite pleasing, with a warm, welcoming feel inside and tons of seating outside. The tables inside are large and communal, so socialization is encouraged.

Service was reasonable, especially for a belly-up-to-the-bar kind of place. They were relatively busy, so the two people on staff had their hands full. As expected, all the beer was delicious. I absolutely need to be returning here; a great place to visit.

I visited on the grand opening of the new side of their tasting room. A large crowd was on hand, and so not representative of a "typical" experience at the brewery. The "old" side had an industrial feel, while the "new" side was more upscale looking. Plenty of taps on both sides. I look forward to checking it out another time, and getting a better feel for the place.
