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.

Large place, several seating options. More of a restaurant than a brewery feel. Food is good, they always have some intriguing beers, and its a cool vibe.

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.
