Cool open space with communal tables to park yourself on and drink some interesting beers. Some adventurous beers on offer such as a 100% Bretted brew that was very nice. Staff were chatty and having fun with staff and amongst themselves. You can bring your own food in which I love places like that. Come here and enjoy some good beers.

Nice space inside the brewery with shared tables and a good vibe. Half a dozen beers on offer. Worth a visit.

Nice brewery with lots of communal seating and a nice outdoor area if the weather is nice, which it was when we stopped by. Service was fantastic, a friend of mine isnít too into beer and one of the employees gave him a sample of everything they had trying to find out what he likes. Very friendly. They had a nice selection of beers covering a broad range of styles. Value is pretty good all around. This is a very cool place, a simple place with great beer.

I really liked this place - an informal drinking area in a corner of the brewery. Staff were welcoming, I got my half pints, beers were good, I would definately go again despite being a bit out of the way. However I started a great crawl from here ending at Urban Family!

Visited around 6pm on Thursday 8th November í12. Place was booming and we just bagged one of the last small tables. Medium sized single room establishment with what I can only describe as small stadia style bench seating as you enter then to the left the main room which has a large central bench and then a few small tables scattered around it. All house beers - 8 on tap and one on cask, sample tray available. Server brought the tray over to me, where as ordinarily itís bar service, so nice touch. We didnít have food but free snacks were available in the form of mini pretzels - help yourself. Dog and child friendly, 2 or 3 of each variety on my visit. Decent place, some good beers and a good vibe. For reference I came in a cab from the Space Needle area (in rush hour) and this cost $16 with tip.

(Visited 09/2012 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): Fremont Brewing is located on Woodland Park in Fremont not too far from the Fremont Troll and close to the lake. Street parking is available in the surrounding area.

The inside is open with a clear view of the brewing equipment, and a walk-up bar in the rear for pints or growlers. Some merch by the bar too. Part of the garage is converted to picnic table seating.

Fremont has around 6 of their beers on tap, including Universale, Interurban IPA, Summer Ale, Wandering Wheat, Dark Star and Harvest Ale on my visit.

Service on our visit was pretty good, although there must have been a misunderstanding between our tour guide and the staff because we didnít stay long, I assume because we were supposed to have a table reserved. It didnít bother me but the guide was irritated.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall this place is a nice neighborhood brewery and I would like to visit again.

This place is quite relaxing. Unfortunately, you get a lot of douchebags coming into this place, thinking theyíre cool because they donít know any better. I very well may be a douchebag, too, but I do live in Fremont, so I consider this a neighborhood hangout. Anyways, this place is very chill, again, except for the douchebags. Some of the staff seem annoyingly proud of their beer, but theyíve got a long, long way to go before they can be considered a well-known, domestic brewery. They have all of the potential, and when they do things right, - they do it really right, such as their Summer Ale, and Barrel-Aged Abominable. Lotís of open space here, and they do the classy thing by serving free pretzels. Love the simplicity in the space, but some employees here, need to get their head out of the clouds, and realize thereís plenty of competition in Seattle. Stick to your craft, and keep making good shit, and youíll do fine. No need to be so proud. Cheers. The self-service is nice, and I love finding the variety of their own stuff, when you go in.

Fremont brewery is awesome. Not intended for the masses, but theyíve got their taps open a few days a week. Oh yeah, itís in the brewery. Like you can see the beer being brewed in giant vats. Itís obviously all Fremont stuff, but thatís not bad, and itís the best prices you will see for them. Itís a pretty cool place.

Great small brewery, love it here. B.Y.O. Pic-Nic style tables and social atmosphere, kids/dogs/friends/whatever... anything goes. Miss the days of drinking from your growler, theyíre so legit now.

First and foremost for the beers--these guys turn out a nice lineup of IPAs and stouts, with other styles showing up regularly as well. You can find their kegs and bombers all over town these days, and you can find growlers of their beer filled and chilled and ready to go here at the brewery. But when you come visit the place, you get a good experience to go with the good beer. Itís on the east side of the aurora bridge, away from most of the places where people go out for a beer in Fremont. Itís kind of its own little world, but that doesnít stop it from getting a nice steady crowd. You walk in and you know right away youíre in a working brewery. Thereís a wall of bright tanks about 15 feet past the little foyer, with banquette seating cordoning off the working area from the drinking area. Past this is the register, where they fill tasters, schooners, and pints, and will you ring you up for growlers and bottle sales. They had Bourbon Barrel Abominable, capped and waxed, for sale in bombers yesterday. Nice! Turn from the register and you get more banquette seating and a long beer hall table made of kegs and old lumber. Thereís obviously a lot of rough and ready carpentry happening here; they clearly built the stairs and much of the upstairs offices themselves. It gives it a nice neighborhood feel, along with the sense that youíll not be bilked on beers so they can pay off the contractor loan. Thereís a roll-up garage door at the end of the beer hall table, and you know this place is fun in nice weather. Even on a somewhat dreary Sunday afternoon, there were all kinds of people here enjoying themselves. As the afternoon wore on, musicians showed up, along with dogs and kids. All good signs--being dog-friendly and kid-friendly makes it easy for people to make it in here, and live music is a nice touch. What they donít really have here is food, aside from boxed pretzel sticks and maybe a couple other little bar snacks. They do have great service, though, and everything else about the place is a slightly offbeat and very welcoming addition to the Seattle beer scene.
