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.

I've been to Fremont more than any other brewery. They always have some outstanding beers, it's a great place to meet friends (whether we bring the kids or not, doesn't matter, because Fremont is cool like that) and the Urban Beer Garden is great. Line can be a little long and service a little slow sometimes, but Fremont has quickly become a must-visit Seattle beer destination. They deserve all their success and I hope they just keep doing what they've been doing.
