Qualifier: I am rating on the industrial park warehouse scale, which of course does not rate a fancy restaurant with shiny copper vats the same way as a neighborhood brewery tasting room.

Fremont Brewing is the second example. This is a cool neighborhood hang where you can stop by while walking the dogs on a pleasant weekend afternoon.

As mentioned, this is a warehouse, albeit with a brightly painted exterior. Inside is plenty of bench seating (amazing how often the warehouse tasting rooms don't offer enough place to park your can), the requisite taps and a reach-in refrigerator for the bottles.

The simplicity is what works for these places. The benches and close seating encourages conversation and beer community. Of course, you also have to serve tasty beer.

And Fremont does have tasty offerings, from bottles of barrel aged brew to taps like their intensely citrus-hoppy Interurban IPA. Beer prices are reasonable, especially the sampler deal that allows you to procure six tasters for six bucks.

To sum, Fremont Brewing is a basic, clean, accessible brewery that offers tasty beers at decent prices. Your dogs, outside grubbage and kids are welcome. My kind of place.

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.
