Elysian is easily my favorite Seattle brewery--the Capitol Hill and Tangletown pubs have great atmosphere in particular, and the food at all three is great. The Elysian Fields location--punnily named as it's close to the Seahawks' and Mariners' stadiums--is the least inviting. That said they've got a great selection of Elysian beers, which are all well done.

This brewpub is huge. The space is cavernous and chic, with lots of granite, copper, dim lighting, and techno-muzak. There's even a fish tank lighting one of the side VIP-style rooms; it feels more like a nightclub than a neighborhood pub, and perhaps that's what the Elysian folks wanted from this satellite. They had eighteen of their own beers on tap, including some that aren't available in Tangletown or at the original brewpub on Capitol Hill. I especially enjoyed the Fields Wit, which had a great balance of spices and a nice, crisp malt presence. The Prometheus IPA was a nice spin on their regular Immortal IPA as well. Other taps included all of the regular Elysian brews, several strong ales, a hefe weizen, and a house bitter.

Worth a stop for Elysian beers, but don't expect much in the way of pub atmosphere.

Crazy place on game days as one might imagine but is a great spot to eat and drink in the Downtown Seattle area. They keep the standards you see on tap in the area as well as specialties you can find only here. Beer list is 5 pages long so take your time and try some of the more unique listings. They have a full bar too but who needs booze when there is beer? Food is good but a little pricey. Go early if you go on the weekends or like I said earlier on Sounders or Seahawks games. Enjoy the mayhem and fun.

Stopped in here when I was in Seattle for a conference. Neat ambiance, HUGE place, and a great selection of Elysian brews. Got a bunch of brews, 4 or 5, on cask and on tap. There was a nice variety from stouts to IPAs and other things. Food was solid enough and prices--while not cheap--weren’t completely outrageous. Decent service. Recommended, especially for game time.

Visited 7/23 following the Yankees/Mariners game.

A: Nice, upper-scale feel, more like a restaurant than a pub or brew pub. Large seating area, big oblong bar area, plenty of seating, nice tables and chairs.

Q: Quality seemed good in my opinion, beer and food seemed just fine.

Service: Meh. Not horrible, not anything worth writing home about. The waitress was aloof, yes, but also busy serving a section in the bar that was full of post-game baseball fans. I'll cut her some slack. The bus boy filling water was always pretty close by.

Selection: Pretty darn good, almost all of their regulars were on tap (The Immortal, Jasmine, Mens Room, Perseus, etc., plus Dragonstooth) plus 7 or so one-offs and experimental brews that I've never heard of. I selected a a tropical-fruit-forward IPA that was recommended (the name escapes me now) and it was decent.

Food: Looked like a pretty standard selection, and I was disappointed by the lack of seafood considering how close to salt-water we were. However the mussels in red curry sauce were very good.

Prices seemed reasonable, especially for Seattle. A big gripe I had was the lack of Elysian stuff for sale (growlers, glasses, etc.). I definitely would have bought some stuff if there had been an option for it.

A treat to find this place open for business after the game. Overall, I would go back and try it again, and I would recommend it if people are down in the Stadium district of Seattle.
