This place feels more like a restaurant, but the bar is really spacious. The only drawback is they have Coors on tap for the unenlightened troglodytes who visit before the games.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon during Fourth of July weekend. Located near the stadium, I assume it gets packed during baseball or football games. Atmosphere is pretty cookie cutter, similar to a Gordon Biersch, or Rock Bottom or other brewpub. They probably had around 16 beers on tap when we visited. Sampler trays were offer this time (the previous time I visited, samplers were not available). All beers were solid to excellent. I really recommend checking this place out, I was really impressed with this visit and the quality of the beer.

Elysian is one of my favorite breweries in Seattle, and the Fields bar did not disappoint. A nice atmosphere that is appropriate for the die-hard beer drinker, but also not a bad place to take friends as a start for a night out. Elysian brews a broad range of beers and had a very good selection. Particularly of note were the cask-conditioned IPA and the ESB-style beer on a nitro tap. I canít say enough good things about the bartender who served us. My buddy and I got samplers, which only included a fraction of the total selection. The bartender kept giving us pours of beer for free. Needless to say, we left very happy. The food isnít really remarkable as with most brewpubs you go there for the beer and food is a sideshow. If youíre in the area (or in Capitol Hill or Tangletown), a stop at Elysian Fields is a must. Do yourself a favor and hit the Fields for pregame festivities, rather than the extremely lame Pyramid Alehouse.

Close to Safeco, with a nice selection of brewery beers on tap. The interior is industrial chic, and very well done. The food I had was delicious, and the beers hit the spot.

Visited with some friends on my first trip to Seattle. It looks like a warehouse with some tables on one side and a bar in the middle. The brewing system is on the other side, near the entrance. The service at the bar was alright and the beers were pretty decent all around. They had a couple of seasonals on but the flight doesnít include that. I asked how we could go about trying those and the brewer happened to be standing right there. He went to the bar and got pours for us and brought them back. The bock was my favorite. When I thanked him he asked if we wanted to see the brewery. I said sure so he took us over there and showed us some of the stuff they had in barrels downstairs under the restaurant and we talked a bit about doing sours in his equipment and how he has to clean everything off very well afterwards. Nice guy, cool place, would return. Parking can be a pain if you are just going to the brewery but if youíre already in the area for a game then you probably should stop in.

Rarely do I ever attend a game in Seattle without going here before and/or after. Iíve even been in a situation where this is where I was watching it. I love the place. Tons of great beer on, constantly rotating, and as of my last visit the other day, they have 3 guest taps. Good food, better beer. Always a good conversation with the bartenders. By far my favorite location, though I have attended this one much more than the others, and itís not close.

Stopped in here when I was in Seattle for a conference. Neat ambiance, HUGE place, and a great selection of Elysian brews. Food was solid enough and prices--while not cheap--werenít completely outrageous. Decent service. Recommended, especially for game time.

A very large hall-like interior, almost like stepping into a church. A large bar with lots of seats and several booths and tables. Several (>10) house brews on tap with a couple of guest beers.
