This is a cool bar to hang out in. The atmosphere is Capital Hill, Seattle. You will see all walks of life which keeps it interesting. The beer list always has their standard5 or so beers, plus they have a few hard to get choices...and then they have their experimental recipes on display.

Fun Pub with good beer.

Had sort of a hippie feel to the place although the servers wouldn't necessarily fit that profile. I did a flight and the beers were good with a few special ones. The IPA seemed to be the best... the service was good but it was an early afternoon so it wasn't packed or anything. I would visit again if I was in the neighborhood but still need to explore other places first next time I get to Seattle which might influence that assessment at a later time.

My first time ever in Seattle, this is a cool place to check out. Inside there is a bar and plenty of tables for those who are looking for food. We got a table near the back, had a nice view of some of the brewing equipment behind glass. They had a standard beer menu, plus a nice list of new or experimental beers. I had an Imperial IPA (Diprohopus), which was a great beer, one of the best I've had. Pretty big selection of food to choose from, my green chili burrito was awesome. Price was decent on everything. I had been to Rogue in Portland the day before. I found Elysian's food and beer to be better, but I think Rogue had a slightly better atmosphere. If I am ever back in Seattle I hope to make it back to Elysian!

Had high expectations before moving to the area and was not disappointed by these folks. Arrived on the day Diprohopus debuted and after 800+ beers, it is still my favorite beer. Server was quite attentive and although we did not order food, she did not treat us poorly like some people tend to do when you go to a pub at lunch or dinner time. Got some awesome stickers after asking. Tried 5 beers or so and all but one were memorable. Patrons were truly a mix of working class, hipsters, good Americans like yourself, and Cap Hill regulars. Treated like a regular, which is unique. Have visited many times since my first visit and service was good every time. Sr. Cantwell keeps coming up with new gems that delight my palate. Will certainly go back whenever possible, if not for anything else but to have ANOTHER Diprohopus, try it if you are a DIPA fan or if you simply lover your taste buds.
