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. (1,211 characters)

Overall ok place. Selection was fairly limited. Was looking for beers to try. The ones I tried were very good though. (117 characters)

Selection was average but it had some interesting taps in the mix also. 5 of the Fremont beers available, plus two beers being served through a Randall (an infuser) one with ginger, grapefruit and centennial hops the other with cucumber. There was also a guest tap with chuckanut pils available.

Service was quick and helpful in answering a few questions on the beers. With in influx in people after we got our first round we only had to wait a few minutes to get our second at the bar inside. Overall good service.

The vibe was laid back and would be a spot I would frequent if I was a resident of the neighborhood. Big picknick tables and a beer garden feel with lots of areas. Right across from a cool bike path that passes buy Google and a few other big tech companies.

The beers themselves were solid, nothing stellar or stand out for me but certainly no duds in the bunch. I tried the IPA through the randall and the girl had the pale ale through the cucumber. Also got the Chuckanut so I can't comment on the other beers.

Good spot overall and worth seeking out if you're in the Fremont area of Seattle (1,113 characters)

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. (220 characters)

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. (221 characters)
