The original Elysian is a classic American brewpub up on Capitol Hill. Think bar area, dining room, and brewhouse, all with wood paneling, post-industrial decor (ie exposed brick and ventilation), and large windows, and you have the idea. What separates Elysian though are the Small Brewpub of the Year banners from 1999, 2003, and 2004 from the GABF. The beers boost the otherwise unremarkable place.

They had about twelve house beers on tap, as well as a few offerings from their other Seattle pubs (Fields and Tangletown). Their seasonals included the Avatar Jasmine IPA, Ambrosia Mai Bock, and Prometheus IPA, which were all fine, but I went straight for the source of the freshest, best cask ESB in the Northwest. The Wise on Cask is worth a trip in itself, and to have an equally fresh Prometheus Porter doubled the value of this.

The service was prompt, if slightly uncouth, though he did charge my friends and me for one pitcher instead of our various pints and schooners--a nice gesture for the Thursday afternoon crowd.

Elysian is a fine brewpub with excellent beer--it's a beer landmark in Seattle and should be the top brewpub for any beer tourist to visit in the city.
