Yes, it's a warehouse, but it's friendly and beer-centric. Kids and dogs are allowed. The only food served there is a large bowl of self-serve pretzels. You're allowed to bring your own food. You're allowed to buy or fill a growler and drink it on site, which is pretty surprising and nice.
There's limited table seating, although they have one fairly good sized German-beer-hall-style table with benches (long, intended to be shared by strangers). It can get fairly crowded, and I've only seen one guy serving there -- no table service, just line up at the bar. But, it goes pretty quickly and they'll hold onto your growler until you're ready to go.
Growlers are $8 to fill, more to buy but I can't remember how much. Most of their beers are $4 or $5 for a glass, and some of them are excellent (some of them are not). They made a beer for Brouwer's, I think they called it V5, which was terrific. They also made a nitro cranberry ale which was distinctly lackluster.
They have six taps and a cask, the taps seem to rotate through their selection fairly quickly.
They don't have much in the way of decorations, but you're basically sitting right in the brewing facility, which gives you plenty to look at.

Fantastic place! I had a Brother IIPA, a Dry Fly Bourbon Abominable and their Summer Ale. All stellar beers. Open seating at big tables inside and out. I wish they served some type of food. They were building out next door, I can't wait to go back and check it out.

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.
