Visited on a Wednesday evening in November 2015. Sat in the lower section of the venue and it’s a nice place. Plenty of space and pretty comfortable which surprised me as thought it’d be packed. Service was good and very quick. Beer range was excellent. A tasting tray is on offer with 5 set samplers which is OK but it would be better to be able to pick and choose. Plenty of different styles. Food was excellent. Prices were also good. Recommended.
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 don’t 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 didn’t eat. Prices were good, parking wasn’t too bad, and the area is nice. Considering how many beers these guys make I’m due to stop back in on my next visit to Seattle.
Nice location in a trendy neighbourhood with lots to do and see. Bar is big and airy, with great service. Beer selection was primarily theirs, but had enough varieties to keep you busy. I found the food very good and would have gone back just for that alone. Prices were reasonable, and if I am ever back in Seattle will consider it a must visit.
Big brewpub location. Parking here seems like it could be a problem, but we were able to grab one of the handful of spaces in the lot behind the building.
They had something like 14 or 15 beers on tap during our stop. They do flights, but they offer premade flights which is kind of annoying. Luckily, the two flights they had going were all beers I’d never had before. They’re $10 each for 5 beers, which isn’t terribly cheap. Beer quality was hit or miss, unfortunately.
Lots of interesting beers on tap, which is cool. Service was good. Food and cocktail list is pretty good as well. Recommended.
Pleasant spacious pub with a bunch of Elysian seasonal brews on the go. I picked a good time and it wasn’t that hectic here, thus easy to get served. Fucken pumpkin beers being poured like it’s going out of fashion. All good, it was nice to pop by for a beer and gander.
An expansive brewpub featuring over a dozen Elysian beers on tap. Preset flights available, though they did a custom one for me which was nice. Service is no frills but fairly prompt and accommodating. Prices are reasonable. Not the most exciting place to come, but if stuck in the area and looking for a good drink or two, this place will do just fine.
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 I’d 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 didn’t 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.
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 didn’t 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.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
