Not too bad Not too bad at all...

Elysian, at least to this current Angeleno, seems to be pushing the border of good will that small breweries generate. Of course they have "multiple" locations, etc, but so what.

Big and tall yet still feeling low due to the dark swirly colors that abound. Tall damn bar, tallest I've encountered. If you're a standing patron, you might find yourself adjusting your posture to suit the bar height.

Service on this night was more than adequate, ignoring us when needing, cajoling when wanted and providing excellant beer service to two weary beer travellers not likely to be encountered anytime soon.

Good beer, loudish atmosphere with the bartenders deciding the music as whim fits (tonight: Cake and Toad the Wet Sprocket).

Definately a place to come hit as the beers range all over the map.There is bound to be at least one worthy tap of tasty product. (And hey it's closest brewpub to downtown that isnt' Pikes)

I had never been to Elysian on Capitol Hill before, so I hoofed it up the hill after work yesterday and checked it out. I really like the atmosphere; it feels like an old pub in there, with various flags hanging from the ceiling and lots of old, beat-up wood. It feels sort of industrial inside, in a wood-hewn kind of way; it even smells woody inside. I've been to Elysian Fields down by the stadium several times, but I must say I prefer the hominess of this location more.

They had 17 beers on tap, quite a good collection. I had the I-5 Amarillo, their collaboration with Central City up in BC, and quite liked it. The service was prompt and friendly; you can't ask too much more of a pub. I feel like this is definitely a place I could patronize regularly.
