Yes, it's a warehouse, but it's friendly and beer-centric. Kids and dogs are allowed. The only food served there is a large bowl of self-serve pretzels. You're allowed to bring your own food. You're allowed to buy or fill a growler and drink it on site, which is pretty surprising and nice.
There's limited table seating, although they have one fairly good sized German-beer-hall-style table with benches (long, intended to be shared by strangers). It can get fairly crowded, and I've only seen one guy serving there -- no table service, just line up at the bar. But, it goes pretty quickly and they'll hold onto your growler until you're ready to go.
Growlers are $8 to fill, more to buy but I can't remember how much. Most of their beers are $4 or $5 for a glass, and some of them are excellent (some of them are not). They made a beer for Brouwer's, I think they called it V5, which was terrific. They also made a nitro cranberry ale which was distinctly lackluster.
They have six taps and a cask, the taps seem to rotate through their selection fairly quickly.
They don't have much in the way of decorations, but you're basically sitting right in the brewing facility, which gives you plenty to look at.

This place is my home away from home! It's a convenient location, well priced, comfy seating, and knowledgeable staff. Dogs and babies are welcome. You can bring your own food. They usually have pretzels available, and sometimes apples as well. Not a pretentious place at all. Lots of happy beer drinkers drinking beer and being happy about it. Fabulous place to fill your growler. The staff cares about beer, and want you to have a great drinking experience. The only down side is, this place has become so popular, it gets too crowded when the weather is nice. So get lost! Leave regulars like me alone so we may drink in peace.
Seriously, here is what you get: a kid- and dog-friendly drinking atmosphere, crowds when the weather is decent, really good beer, pleasant staff who care about what they are doing, nice Randalls, reasonably comfortable seating, trendy location.
What I wish they would change or do differently: be closer to where I live. Oh, wait - - I should move.

To start, $5 for a flight of 5 really good beers, you just can't go wrong! Great tasting room with friendly servers, free pretzels, comfy booths around beer keg tables, and a sunny patio outside just makes the experience even better. The Abominable and The Brother were outstanding, bu everything was really good. If I lived closer, I'd be a regular!

Review for the old taproom.
Fremont brewery is awesome. Not intended for the masses, but they’ve got their taps open a few days a week. Oh yeah, it’s in the brewery. Like you can see the beer being brewed in giant vats. It’s obviously all Fremont stuff, but that’s not bad, and it’s the best prices you will see for them. It’s a pretty cool place.
Updated review for the new one.
Still love this brewery. The taproom is now attached to the brewery, not just in it. The selection is typical, a solid amount of taps showcasing their current beers. Usually have an interesting specialty keg, a Nitro, or a Firkin. No food unless you count pretzels. The room itself is very fancy looking, hardwood and barrels surround you. It's a great place to grab a brew.

A: open, airy, bright. No seats at the bar. One long wooden "picnic" table inside with smaller tables on the side and even steps to sit on. Outside are a variety of simple wooden tables. I liked it.
Q: I found it to be a little spotty. Out of a five beer sampler I thought two were very good and three were just fine.
S: Order at the counter only. Service is prompt, polite, knowledgeable but I wouldn't call it welcoming or friendly.
Selection: 10-12 available. Some very interesting styles like beer aged in Merlot barrels (two versions) and an ale with pineapple. A guy even told me about a basil infused beer.
F: didn't see any offered.
V: Nice place to visit but I wouldn't go out of my way to get here.

This place rocks! New beer garden. Totally renovated. Lots of amazing brews on tap and all the free pretzels you can eat. Staff is really friendly and sure knows a lot about beer. If they have any of their fresh hop beer, try it. I wish I lived in Seattle so I could go here more often. I live in central California and the brewery's near home are absolutely no comparison in quality. If available... Try the bourbon barrel aged abominable, dark star imperial stout, or any if their fresh hop ales! Thor was great!

Cool place overall. Good space that is relaxed. Pretty much a warehouse style tasting room. Rugged and plain. Not much to look at but clean.
Beer was great. Lots of growler, can and bottle options to go. Plenty of choice. I think there were 6 taps.
The people were a bit on the uppity side of things. Not ultra friendly but kinda stuck to themselves. Not my favorite vibe but I was there for the beer more importantly.
Glad I got to try the beer and bring home a 6 pack. Worthy beer and they have what looks like a really nice and efficient brewery.
