wonderful place in the foothills of qwest field. been here once before, when they did not have the brewery going down there yet. cavernous on a friday afternoon with a seahawks team not playing anymore and baseball months away. had some delicious beverages: saison poivre, valhalla, hubris imperial ipa, and toro oro mate tripel. all of these were outstanding, even the mate beer. got to talk with one of the bartenders about his bourbon knowledge and tried to search out the brewer still working.
he was gone but a server kindly searched the building for him and let us know he'd be back shortly and she'd let him know. sure enough, twenty minutes later, the gentleman reappeared and led us to his 8 barrel lair. all the fun stuff elysian does happens at this beautiful place. james gave us the tour and it was the start of a beautiful weekend in seattle.

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

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.

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.
