My first visit to Hale's took place during the closing ceremonies for Seattle Beer Week 2010. The beer fest took place in the Palladium out behind the brewery, but I took a few minutes to go out to the pub for a few minutes.

There's a lot of glass at the front of the bar area, which is separated from the family friendly dining area. There was a TV up in back of the bar, and the kitchen is visible from the bar as well.

A nice selection of Hales own brews were on tap, I had a 2 year old 25th Anniversary Dubble and a Pale Ale. As there was food at the brewfest I only had a quick appetizer, lime chicken skewers, that was very tasty.

The bartender that day, Karen, was very friendly and efficient, without being intrusive or harried on a busy day. The prices were in line with what you expect to pay in a major city these days.

Overall, a nice place to visit if you're in the Fremont area of Seattle.

I've been to Hale's numerous times over the years, but most recently spent the playoffs getting brunch and pre-funking here. Go Hawks!

I really like the atmosphere of the bar area; dark wood, a clean environment that is somehow also a little bit too-close and dank, and a couple of TVs but without that sports-bar vibe. Service has been quite good, with knowledgeable and friendly staff who know their beer and are up for a chat. They have at least a dozen taps with one beer on cask at all times and at least another on nitro; there's usually something I want there.

I'm not a huge fan of all of Hale's beers, but there are always a couple in there range that I enjoy and can get. The smoked porter I had with my eggs and biscuits paired really well; I'll definitely be back for this combo. Overall, I really like the place.

Friendly staff who knew regulars but was not distracted from doing her job, although she wanted to smoke a stogie quite badly. I have seen others leave and hope somebody covers for them, this lady waited for all bases to be covered for sure b/f leaving with a regular for a smoke, I appreciated that. Pretzel was all I had hoped for to compliment my Reuben's Brew. Regulars seemed in their own world (i.e. phones) so it felt as if I was alone watching "soccer". Respectful conversations about customers from management made me feel like they talked about others, like we all do, but not like snobs, just like normal folks. Good place to stop in for a beer or two but I would not make it a regular habit to visit solely b/c the location from my place on Alki. They hosted the Winter Beer Festival in December and that was a blast. Some neat gear in the gift shop area.
