Visited on a Thursday afternoon in November 2015. It’s a nice location and has a decent outside area. Inside there’s 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. They’ve 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.
Oops, almost forgot to rate this one! First stop with the wife on our last day in Seattle. This is an open air space, large outdoor patio area. Two inside bars with some seating, but with the rollup doors up the only difference is less rain and more noise. Several water stations about and a ton of games to choose from. Pretzels available - self serve. There were a bunch of beers on tap when I was there; way more than the nine stated. Flights available as well, so I got a flight and worked through it while playing a game with the wife. They had KDS and KDS coffee on tap as well, which was nice. Beer quality as expected. Great stop.
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 you’re not a kid person (as I’m not), this might be a bit annoying. Definitely worth a stop in though.
Visited around 6pm on Thursday 8th November ’12.
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 it’s bar service, so nice touch.
We didn’t 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 didn’t stay long, I assume because we were supposed to have a table reserved. It didn’t 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. They’ve 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 I’ve had from Fremont in the past is just great American style beer. The fresh hopped IPA at the taproom was no exception. They’ve got plenty of beer to go as well. Good prices on everything.
Visited early on Wednesday June 24, 2015. My friend drove us over, only did find a 1 hour parking, which was implemented after we returned after 3 hours or so, with a ticket on the window. See if you can find better parking than us, or make sure to move your car. Did check busses here as well, busses would stop close by. Arrived here just before 11 am, so was there when they opened. Stayed for two flights of 4 beers each, didn’t eat. Plenty of seating inside and outside, though with the heat and sun prefered to sit inside today. A couple of people around even this early on a weekday. Fairly fast and friendly service, though apparently their wifi was not for customer use. Nice enough place, I could see myself going back.
