Fred's Rivertown Alehouse was established in July of 1994 by Jay & Vicki Meacham, Bill Astley, and Kurt Meacham. The Alehouse, the former Fred's Tavern, is located @ 1114 First Street in historic downtown Snohomish, WA. It is approximately 30 miles northeast of Seattle and 9 miles east of Everett.

Fred's has transformed from a pool table, jukebox, yellow beer tavern into one of the Northwest's Premier Alehouses & Restaurants. Fred's has one of the most diverse food menus anywhere, 32 craft and European beers on draught, an excellent wine list, and one of the largest single malt scotch selections in the country.

Whether you are in the mood for comfort food, like our porter ale meatloaf, great burgers & sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and salads or ethnic foods such as gumbo, halibut tacos, lobster bisque, Thai chicken wraps, or wasabi shumai, Fred's has something for everyone.

We also like to indulge in most holidays. We have a special Sweetheart's menu for Valentine's Day. On St. Patty's Day you will find Shepherd's Pie, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Lamb Stew, and Irish Nachos. Fat Tuesday will be greeted with such delights as Shrimp Etouffee, Fried Catfish, and Gator-on-a-Stick. Other events include Cinco de Mayo and authentic Mexican fare, a German Oktoberfest Meal, then Christmas with Reindeer Stew (sorry Rudolph!) and much, much, more.

Fred's Rivertown Alehouse has received local and national acclaim. We have been named as one of the Top 10 Places in the USA for Holiday Cheer by USA Today. We have received positive reviews in newspapers such as The Seattle Times and The Everett Herald, and have been featured on NBC's King 5 News. We were awarded the highest rating of Four-Stars by The Beer Lover's Guide to the USA, one of only two such ratings in the state. They also put us on their list of Top 21 Beer Establishments in the country. Recently, we were a featured destination spot in Sunset Magazine, Feburary of 2007.

While we take great pride in our accomplishments, we are constantly striving to continue to bring our guests the friendliest service and highest quality products. Each time you visit the Alehouse you may expect to find new beers and new food choices. Whether it is a never before released beer or a Featured Menu Item created by our imaginative kitchen staff , we trust that you will always be pleasantly surprised with our innovations.

Fred's Rivertown Alehouse is well known throughout the beer community. Often times we are the first choice for breweries to introduce new beers, limited or specialty beers, and beers you just won't find anyplace else. Tuesday nights are Cask Beer Nights. Sample some of the freshest beer around in its natural, unaltered state. We have monthly Brewery Nights, featuring breweries from all over the country.

At Fred's, we like to say that once we get you through the front door, our friendly service, relaxed family atmosphere, and our quality food and beverages will keep you coming back. We hope that you find this true, and we look forward to seeing you in the near future!
