A very warm, wood-appointed casual setting offering all of Haleís Ales, a full bar, their small batch (read test-brew ask the server), nitro taps, and a cask. The brewery sports mirrors above the english-style open fermenters in the gallery. They have a nice outside area off of the back (kid friendly) seating area, with space upstairs available for events. Their kitchen leans away from average. While their pizza rocks, I like the Jerk Chicken sandwich, and Brisket. On the Fremont side of 8th Ave. parking is not usually a problem, except for during Haleís Moisture Festival.

We sat on the patio outside. The have great deals for sampling the beer. I sampled I believe 8 beers, most of which were really good (especially El Hefe).

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.

Very good atmosphere, but unfortunately ave not sampled the food yet. Service was excellent, and loved the classic bar styling.

Another must visit brewpub when in Seattle. We went on Sunday morning after visiting Mars Hill (www.marshillchurch.org) because it was right down the street from there. The service was good and food pretty tasty. They had all their normal beers on tap and a not too often seen one - their dry hopped 2IPA. This too is in a cool industrial location and the guts of the brewery are in plain view for all to see. They have a separate bar as well as a restaurant. Enojoyable!

Nice looking place. A lot nicer than what the surrounding area would have you think. This place serves up a couple of excellent house brews. I really enjoy the Barleywine, Mongoose IPA, Wee Heavy and the Moss Bay Extra. The appetizers Iíve had have been really tasty. The nock on this place is the help. To me it seems like college kids who really donít care. So a few times Iíve been there the service has been less than friendly. Regardless, Iíll be back for more the next time Iím in the NW.

Easy to get to and the bar has a great view of the brewing operation. No sampler available, samples each $1.25. Six in-house brews on tap, plus one cask. I deigned to try only two and they werenít worth writing home about. Didnít bother asking about in-house bottles to go. Growlers were available. Guy behind the bar was snotty.

Iíve been here a number of times, and itís a reasonable enough brewpub. In a locale without other first-rate options, I could see being quite grateful for its presence. The entire place is beautiful in a modern museum sort of way, theyíve got a wide range of their brews on tap, the food is quite passable for pub fare. But...like the relatively mediocre beers they brew and serve, this place lacks soul. Think Gordon Biersch but better. With Brouwers a couple of blocks away and Elysian Tangletown and the Big Time Brewery within striking distance, I donít see myself coming here very often (if ever) in the future.

I visited this place after Brouwerís cafe on a Friday afternoon. There is a large brewery on the right as you walk in, with the brewpub portion being on the immediate left in a windowed-off room. Long bar with some couches as well as booths present. Bright, well-lit. They had about 10 beers on tap while I was there and the bartender was prompt and attentive. I had some samples that were a buck a piece. I did not have the food. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. I enjoyed the beer and the time I spent here. Relaxing.
