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.

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.
