We had lunch here. Theplace seemed a bit generic yet scruffy to me. Food was pub fare. Plenty of beers on tap, but nothing too exciting.

Trendy upscale feel, large windows, dark lighting and college aged crowds sitting around drunkenly. Visited at 11pm on a Monday and was able to sit in a dark corner and slowly sip a stout and barley wine. Some folks in there enjoying free wireless access... nice place.

Stopped in with some friends on the way up to Brouwers for dinner. They have about a dozen house taps but a number of them are seasonal/rotating and they donít like doing samplers of those. Plenty of stuff to pick from if you know ahead of time which one you like. The service was friendly and the food looked OK but we didnít eat. Prices were good, parking wasnít too bad, and the area is nice. Considering how many beers these guys make Iím due to stop back in on my next visit to Seattle.

(Visited 05/2008): This Elysian Brewing location is on Pike Street right off of East Madison. There is street parking around but I imagine it is hard to find at peak times. The interior is well-lit due to large windows. The space is a split level, with the bar area toward the front and table seating in the rear. The beer list is on wooden signs behind the bar. The brews are available in 2 different levels of samplers for either $6.95 or $7.95. As for the beers, Elysian boasts a healthy array of beers, including guest taps from their other locations. They have a total of 16 taps plus one cask, and the beers are eclectic in style. All of the beers were above average in varying degrees. Service was very good on a weekday afternoon. The bartender was attentive and had a good grasp of all the beers. The food at Elysian must be very good if the Steak Frites are any indication. The appetizer was excellent. Overall I would put this place at the top of the 3 brewpubs I visited on my Seattle trip.

I have not always been all that impressed by the Elysian beers I bought in bottle form, but I must say that the four ales Iíve tried at their main location on Pike have all been very satisfactory. Itís probably one of these places which really deserves a visit to its core to truly appreciate. Otherwise, the place itself is a large half-bar, half-restaurant of urban stature that I canít say was immediately all that appealing yet it seemed fairly popular. The selection of Elysian beers is very impressive, plenty of their offerings Iíd never heard of. In my experience, this was the top brewpub in the city, but I certainly donít count the brewpub as a tap American brewpub Mecca. We had dinner and found food to be on par with most brewpubsí - this was a bit disappointing as we were hoping for a notch of two above in what should be an all-out quality joint.

Stopped by for lunch on Monday 27/05/13 - Memorial Day prior to grabbing a taxi to SEATAC for the red eye home. The place is a little rough and ready decor wise, kind of a dive bar field, nothing like the highly polished Elysian Fields that Iíd lunched in on my previous Seattle visit. The place was fairly busy and the service was good - we got one or two samples and taster flights are available. Just had the burgers for lunch and they were decent. Beer wise, all Elysian aside from one New Belgium beer that I believe had been brewed at Elysian, beers were solid enough and a good range of styles. Plenty of bottles from other brewers in the fridge but didnít really explore here much. Overall a solid stop and well worth it if you want to tick some Elysian beers. If you are with your wife or girlfriend and want something a little more upscale - head to Elysian Fields.

Pleasant spacious pub with a bunch of Elysian seasonal brews on the go. I picked a good time and it wasnít that hectic here, thus easy to get served. Fucken pumpkin beers being poured like itís going out of fashion. All good, it was nice to pop by for a beer and gander.

This is a pretty traditional, tasteful brewpub. The beer lineup was very impressive with strong emphasis on hoppy styles. There were plenty of interesting choices available. I thought it was kind of cool that they had some decent guest bottles as well. For dinner I had curried schnitzel which is as delicious as it sounds. This was a great first brewery stop for me in Seattle.

This place is awesome. Big industrial looking space, open high ceiling, exposed pipework, and some cool looking mural/banners hanging all over. The kitchen closes way too early for a place thatís as busy as it was at 11 bells. Very friendly service (we need Vancouver to import servers from WA state). She knew the beers pretty well too, which is always a bonus. Beers ranged from good to excellent. A fantastic place to drink in the middle of a very cool neighborhood. Some decent bottles as well.

Visited for the Firkin Fest on May 12th, 2009. Really big, open place - lots of room in the bar, many tables, and a great big area in back where they had a second bar setup for the Firkin deal. The Firkin fest itself was setup really well, and run perfectly. Hats off to that, not an easy feat I am sure. The crowd in the place was great, and the service was good despite being really busy. Selection is a bunch of their own beers, plus well chosen guests. On this particular night, there were also the 8 Washington cask beers up against the 8 California cask beers. I didnít have any food, but it all looked good coming out of the kitchen. Overall, cool place with a lot more character than the other Elysian (Fields) I have been to.
