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.

It's a good thing this place didn't exist when I lived a few blocks up the street from this location, because I would have spent a ton of time and $ here.

Very cool vibe, it was kind miserable outside, so we crammed in with everyone else. I could see this being an awesome place to have a beer outside on a summer day.

Quality is top notch. Based on what I've tasted, I think Fremont is putting out the best beer in Seattle. Selection was great too, they had over 12 beers with a nice variety of styles.

Service was fine, nothing memorable. But they were pleasant and pretty fast considering the crowd.

Overall, top notch. One of the best destinations in the whole city.

Really cool spot right by Gasworks Park. Great beers and free pretzels. Solid beer lineup with some weird ones thrown in

if seattle is your destination this brewery is a "must" stop. fortunate enough to land a few limited bourbon barrel releases. crazy good tap section (fall season) with varrying styles. there's something for everyone. people and atmosphere are where it's at. leave mobile devices alone and start a conversation w/ anyone there. fun place and city to be in. cheers!
