The tasting room is a section of the warehouse they brew in and all the brew equipment is clearly visible. They had six taps (one nitro) and one additional tap off to the side that wasn't in use while i was there. For early on a thursday there was a good crowd, but plenty of room. They have a series of small half circle padded seats as well as a long table with a bench made out of boards on keg shells.
The staff are very friendly. The beers were good and the selection was fair for the size of the brewery. Most of the beers were fairly high alcohol and dark. They have a series of coolers full of growlers and have a nice beer gun system for filling growlers. Overall they are a relatively low key brewery that is trying some interesting stuff and definitely worth a visit.
I suppose my only qualms are that they don't serve food (but are too small to make that practical for now) and the growlers are clear glass.

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.

Fremont calls their tasting room an "urban beer garden." I see it as more of a warehouse brewery with an open seating area. The painted cinder block, fluorescent lighting, and buzzing glycol cooler don't fit the bill for "garden", urban or otherwise. The tasting room is partitioned from the brewery by a lounge-like array of red leather seats and centers on a long beer hall-type bench made from the salvaged planks of a local high school sporting arena. Service is limited to four house beers, no guests or cask, and free pretzels. Prepared food is not served.
Fremont's limited beer offerings make any defining assessment difficult to pin down. Of their four taps, three may be concurrently serving the same beer in different ways such as draught, nitro, and dry-hopped. Quality varies.
It would seem the brewery is still working on self-definition. They're new, young, and enjoy an ideal location. Local artwork adorns the walls and the staff is friendly to a fault. We'll see where it goes. Meanwhile, be advised that the garage bay remains open during business hours assuring indoors temperatures are the same as those outdoors.
