Reasonably nice place, friendly staff, decent food. Disappointed by the beers, both the selection and the taste. Most winter brews were gone. Three drain pours of eight beers.

Large brewery building, tough to find parking, so you may end up parked in the Fred Meyer parking lot out back. Has as indoor dining area enclosed within the brewery, with a long bar and a big back room of dining tables. The pub only beer selection is worth the trip.

(Visited 09/2012 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): Haleís is located north of downtown Seattle in the Fremont area on Leary Way. Street parking is available right next to the building.

The building opens up to an entry way with a door leading to a bar and seating area. Some breweriana around the bar. Outside the bar is the brewery complete with some historical information.

Haleís has 10 or 12 of their beers on tap including HSB, Cream Ale, Troll Porter, OíBrianís Harvest and Red Menace. They have a sampler as well. All of the beers I tried were pretty average. A couple of other craft breweries on tap like Everybodyís Brewing.

Service at the bar was pretty good for my one-person tour group. I also got to meet the brewer which was nice. My sandwich for lunch was tasty.

Overall this is a pretty good beer spot in Seattle.

Huge and great at one time, but very dated and a bit tired now. Service was good, but nothing great. Beer flights available. Lots on the beer list, menu for food was bit tired as well. Go to see some local beer history and its close to other breweries, but a little disappointing.

Walkable from Fremont and Brouwerís, Hales is a classic, above-average brewpub, making fine NW pale ales and otherwise predictable but clean renditions of many other styles. The location is not the most spectacular, on a largeish brewpub between Fremont and Ballard, featuring only a smallish dining/tap room, but a nice open view on the brewery when you enter. It canít be tagged a priority, but is a quality brewpub that should be on your list if stayign in Seattle several days.

Nice pub, a lot of space inside, with view on the copper tanks, and a small patio for sunny days; many beers on tap (13 own, 5 guests); the quality of the beers is rather low, donít expect much, indeed the guest taps may be better; they may enforce a self-rule of max 4 tasters per person. Wifi available; clean toilets. Didnít eat there, but they have a reasonable menu.
With all the things happening in Seattle, I donít understand why they donít improve the beers.

Upon entering I am right in front of a full scale, functioning brewing system. To the left through some glass doors is where the actual pub is. Atmosphere in here is basic brewpub ambiance. The beer lineup is solid, not knock-my-sock-offs, but decent.

Visited on a rainy January Tuesday afternoon. Place was pretty slow, but did seem to have a few regulars hanging about. The Pub itself sits off to one corner in the middle of the production brewery. They did a nice job designing the space to be both a part of of the brewery and still be apart from the brewery, if that makes any sense. The bar and seating areas have a nice, worn classic pub feel. They serve their beers in a variety of sizes from taster to pitcher, which I always appreciate. Service was attentive, though not really that friendly. I was there during happy hour, and they had some really nice prices. I had a personal size sausage and mushroom pizza along with two schooners, and I think my total was below $10. Enjoyed the visist, not sure if I would put in in the upper tier of beer places in Seattle, but certainly worth the visit.

Based on three visits. Not to be missed. Itís the only place to get some of the great Hales Ales. Recall the ales, but only ate there once, and the memory is fuzzy.

Nice place but the parking can be rough. There is very little to be found for parking the side streets are your best bet. An old warehouse converted into a brewery/pub this was a great look inside. Loved that I can go watch and talk to the brewers. Brewing a Red amber ale as we where talking. The brews where fresh and pretty good. They have lots of stuff on nitro and over 12 fresh brews ready to go. The food was pub faire and also good. They allow kids so that is a plus and there is some great atmosphere to soak up while in the Fremont area. This is a must stop in Seattle for brew pubs. Hales has been around along time and will be there for a long time to come. The servers know the product and where helpful in getting some of the beer info that I was looking for. I will be back.
