What? No review? How many times have I danced through these halls?
Well, the Elysian revamped the place a couple years ago but the look and feel is more or less the same. Same high ceilings, same eclectic mix of music, same random and awesome pictures rotating on the screensaver on the computer behind the bar. What has changed is a lot more Men's Room Red, which has had an overall negative effect on the selection available. Often they'll have 10 or more of their own brews, either brewed there, at Tangletown or the Fields. Sometimes more, sometimes less. And aside from the Men's Room, almost all of their beers are exceptionally drinkable and delicious.
Most recently went there and had an excellent selection, double IPA, two IPAs, the standard classics, the Great Pumpkin, an American mild, and a few other beautiful beers. They do have some guest taps, depending on how much of their own they are pouring. The bartenders are pretty excellent, as is the staff. Friendly and sexy, I'd say.
The food is good, very good for brewpub food, and I enjoy me a nacho plate. I hope that's still there. I probably should've gotten one yesterday. Mistakes were made.
One of my favorite places in Seattle, my old stomping ground.
