Quite large and open, bit dirty and alternative looking place. Help was very friendly but not so knowledgeable. They are kids friendly what cannot be said for every brewpub. They had quite a few of their own beers on tap and some guests. The food we had was OK and enough.

(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.

Nice place- a bit loud with the tvs and the bartender was in a grumpy mood. But the selection was fine, the beer was good. And definetley a place I would go back to.

This is a great place. It started off a one of the first black-out nights ive had since college. Hipster capital hill bar. Young crowd. Good beer. Mediocre food.

Good location with a cozy industiral feel. Great selection of fresh tasty brews with a friendly staff. Food looked good and the prices were fairly reasonable. The cask pale ale was quite good and the good environment made the evening even more enjoyable.

We only had about 2 days in Seattle, so obviously we couldn’t do every bar, brewpub and store. But I had my heart set on Elysian, and picked my B&B because it wasn’t too far away. We had a full day of walking – including an impromptu visit of the grave of the coolest man who ever lived, or at least tied with Johnny Cash – so we were ready to sit down and have a good meal. It didn’t disappoint, our plates were tasty, and the portions huge. Too large in fact. After only 2 pints and those thousands of calories, I was too full to have another drop. It was unfortunate, because the Beers I chose, who weren’t the chart-toppers that I heard so much about (they weren’t on tap) were excellent, and there were still a few more I would have liked to try, but it just wasn’t in the cards. The atmosphere was cool the old, historic building was gorgeous, décor was a bit worn but fun. It would have been nice to snag bar seats, but there weren’t too many available, so we had more of an intimate dinner in the quieter section next to the brewhouse. I learned a hard lesson: if you’re planning on drinking a bit, don’t use up all of your stomach space for food.

This is the consummate PNW Brewery/Restaurant. Somewhere in an Encyclopedia, there is an entry for Pacific Northwest Brewpub and there’s a picture of this place. The service is great, the folks know their beers and are helpful to both the n00b and the Beergeek. They always have some bottled selections to take home, and their beers are first rate. The food’s good too - I tried both their mahi mahi tacos and their turkey pannini. Both were great, and go well with their beers. Typical of PNW brewpubs, they are a Pacific Northwest stab at California Cuisine, even though I would get shot for saying that. But the idea is to take disparate elements, and make magic out of them. Their food, and beers, do that.

Visited on a busy Saturday evening back in February and was pleased to hear swingin’ oldies, especially since I was in town for some lindy hopping at the Century! Quite spacious inside with brewing tanks on display and sparse decor of flags and Belgian beer signs. Friendly, quick and helpful staff joked good-naturedly about their sister brewer down the hill. At least 8 of their own on tap were delicious and fresh, with special notice going to the Immortal and, surprisingly, the Razmatazz.

Relaxed industrial atmosphere, with high ceiling and large Kid friendly area. Offering brew beyond Elysian, and a full bar. The beer menu sports more than a few well-earned medals. Brewery works are visible from serving areas. Service can be spotty due to turnover, the best service is at the bar. Parking can be tight, this IS Capitol Hill.... Food runs from average pub fare to excellent, with a changing fresh sheet usually holding the best. Their peanut arbol gets a menu workout and worth trying. Their Wise ESB goes with food better than almost anything brewed in Washington.
One of the few pub-feel locations that could work for singles of all stripes, but beware, be polite, and be tolerant.
