Visited on a Thursday afternoon in November 2015. Itís a nice location and has a decent outside area. Inside thereís a few tables and a couple of benches. 19 beers on when we visited and the Bourbon barrel aged Dark Star was available. 5 beer tasters available. A set mix or pick your own. Service friendly. Theyíve got a cool beer fridge. Place was popular with plenty of folk in and out, chatted to a couple of them and very friendly. A nice place to visit
Big garage taking up the entire block with a very nice beer garden overlooking the marina. Self serve and pleasant. No food but you can bring what you want. Prices are very good and they gave us extras. A good place with good beer. A must if in the area.
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.
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.
Cool place in a charming neighbourhood. The outdoor area is very chill and the indoor area is likewise cozy. Taplist is very good, always with some seasonals / specials, and good prices. Dog and children friendly -- so if youíre not a kid person (as Iím not), this might be a bit annoying. Definitely worth a stop in though.
(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.
Fremont has done well for themselves lately. Theyíve expanded their market and their tasting room. The new space is comfortable and open, definitely has a "bigger" brewery feel to it now. I managed to visit here on a very sunny day and the patio was great. Business was bustling at 5:00 on a Wednesday. Everything Iíve had from Fremont in the past is just great American style beer. The fresh hopped IPA at the taproom was no exception. Theyíve got plenty of beer to go as well. Good prices on everything.
Awesome brewery tasting room with a massive cult following. Really spectacular brewing prowess gives them some crazy awesome palates on their beer. A good amount of tap only one-offs makes this a must stop on your beer journey. Dark Star cask treatments were crazy good. All of their hoppy stuff was incredible. No Cowiche Canyon bombers to go, but plenty bombers of Kentucky Dark Star. Glassware for sale. Some growlers were priced at $9 for glass and fill, which was crazy cheap to me. Staff was a bit snotty but lightened up. Tasting flights available/easily identified with a paper "key." Loved it here. Be prepared to get the stare down from the locals if you are there to beer tick. If you want food, looks like surrounding vendors will bring food or you can bring food in. Must be a really cool law in Oregon and Washington that if you serve beer, you have to allow food in if you donít serve food. Love that.
Travelling with a baby, we enjoyed the private biergarden of Fremont Brewing where we drank a couple of very good IPAs, above Washington state average I would say. Friendly, enthusiastic staff. The atmosphere is pleasant enough when the garden is open, but there would not be much interest in visiting at another time. Conveniently located close to Brouwerís Cafť, you might as well pop in if the Schedule is right, but it may not be worth a long detour if you are not staying in the city for multiple days.
