This place is laughably bad. The service is absolutely awful, the beers are horrible, miserable atmosphere, and there was a "conditional pass" sign from the health department on the door. At least the sampler I got was cheap. Scroll past unless you just really want the ticks.

In the area and decided to try it out. Pretty empty on a Sunday afternoon - maybe 4 total people inside when I arrived. Despite that the service was still slow at the bar. I think the bartender was the only person working other than kitchen staff, so she was responsible for everything and everyone, including making photocopies(!) and trying to eat her lunch. They had 8 taps I think, and the sampler included six of them, with customer choice on two seasonals. I ordered the wings on the recommendation of MrHoppy, and they were indeed solid. Beers ranged from pretty Meh to decent. Nothing really special, but nothing with major flaws other than the wheat. Prices seemed a bit hight ($9 for the flight, for example. Not a bad place.

Iíve been wanting to stop in here for several years now since itís fairly close to our data center in Fremont. Iím just there too late usually or donít want to stop in after a long day of work and then having to put in several more hours in a noisy data center. Glad I finally did stop and Iím glad that I really donít have to go back. Itís in a mall but at least itís on the edge of the grounds so parking and getting the hell away from the mall are easier.
I was expecting the worst from the beer, and while some of it was bad (like the porter and the wheat) I think a lot of the hate is people not giving the beer a fair shake and just hating to hate. The doppelbock was drinkable, bordering on decent. The IPA was actually very piney and dank. I was surprised. It was still a bit too sweet, murky, and like all the samples was served in those terrible whiskey glasses, but it was bordering on good. The DIPA wasnít bad either though it was too boozy. I gave up long ago trying to fight for honest opinions, so what ever. Besides, the place isnít all that great regardless of the beer. There was a group at the bar that were talking about football and drinking heavily that were friendly but beyond that there wasnít much going on. The bartender must know them as she was chatting them up the whole time and I couldnít even get a glass of water. Oh well.
I paid $7 for a flight of 6 beers. They normally do 5 to a flight but I guess you can order as many as you want.

One of my favorite place to go. I love their IPA and garlic fries and wings.

Sports themed brewpub located in Fremontís main shopping center, The Hub. I started off with a pint of Hefeweizen and it was a respectable take on a German wheat. The Garlic Fries are by far the best appetizer on the menu and worth checking out. I had a German sausage platter for my entree and it was good but a bit on the salty side. Iíll definitely try to make it back and try some more of their brews.
