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.

Went for dinner last Saturday and lunch last Sunday before the White Sox games.
Vastly preferable to Pyramid (which is closer to the ballpark). Bigger selection of better beers at comparable prices. Smaller selection of better food at comparable prices.
Prices are reasonable (for close-to-stadium joints). Beer is good-to-great. Food is good. Service is pretty good. Location is a walk from the ballpark (practically in the football stadium parking lot, though).

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.
