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. (1,186 characters)

I went to Elysian Fields again the other day to see what interesting beers they have available and to relax after work. It was my first trip to the location not either immediately before or after a sporting event; as this place is just a few hundred feet from Seahawks Stadium, you can imagine how busy it gets on those days.

Overall the location is pretty sizeable, with a big oval central bar that has copious seating. There were around 20 taps, including both Elysian staples as well as rotating and seasonal beers; I really appreciate the variety. Service was a bit slow, considering the relatively low volume of people in the place, but the staff were friendly and helpful -- and I wasn't in any hurry.

This place is definitely worth a stop. They make some interesting beers at Elysian, and this location seems to have their biggest selection. (856 characters)

Right next to CenturyLink and Safeco Fields. Good food and beer. Modern compared to the Capitol Hill location. (115 characters)

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). (465 characters)
