    Seattle's very own craft beer franchise. They got bought up recently by a big corporate so it might change pretty soon. Watch out for new tips! Beer variety could be bigger but OK quality.

    Whoa pumpkin ale is very pumpkin-y!

    The beer is still good in spite of the takeover. I just had a bad experience with service and food. Don't order the tomato rosemary soup. Tastes like Campbell's.

    The seasonal beer flight is a must!

    No brunch, just lunch, but it's good food, I liked the gumbo, my wife the meatloaf special.

    Bill Caples · September 12, 2015
  • Thomas G.

    Took us forever to get just beer. Pick a locally owned brewery :/

    Thomas Glanz · August 31, 2015

    Good beer, great lentil soup.

    Ben Baron · August 25, 2015

    Try the poutine. It's deadly!

    John Robinson · July 28, 2015
  • Jacob A.

    Good craft brews, though not all was to my taste. Come and try all!

    Jacob Ames · May 21, 2015
  • Elif G.

    Their food is pretty good, my fav is the falafel tabouli plate. But above food, they have great beer and amazing bartenders that make really good cocktails even though it's a brewery :)

    Catch the staff on Monday or Tuesday, when the bar is emptier.

    Now owned by Anheuser Busch. Go somewhere independently owned. Not some sell out owned by a conglomerate bent on owning every craft brewer to dumb down craft beer.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · February 27, 2015
  • Zach Z.

    Big name with few actually enjoyable beers. Try the cappuccino stout.

    Legend has it if you sit under the guardian devil, he'll grant you your heart's desire, but it'll turn out to bite you in the ass.

    One of the best brew pubs in the city, so many great beers for every taste and the food is great too!

    The steak frites are always good. Don't skimp on the sauce.

    Brenden Bullock · August 20, 2014
  • Liz T.

    The food used to be ok but they must have gotten a new chef. The roast beef panini was awful :/

  • Crispy T.

    The beer is awesome and the food is very good too! Highly recommended.

    Crispy T · August 11, 2014
  • L A. used to be a reasonable place to visit and expect great service/a great atmosphere. As of late, it sucks. If you want a corner bar with shit ass attitude and lame ass service, come here.

    All the beers are amazing, but definitely try The Fix. You'll be wide awake for hours.

    Jon Darveau · September 26, 2013
  • megan

    The Great Pumpkin Ale is good but Mortis Sour Persimmon Ale is probably the best beer I've had in my life. So, get that.

    megan · September 8, 2013
  • Drew H.

    If you like amazingly rich food, try the Steak Frites with Bleu Cheese sauce. It's soooo good! Also: the craft brews here are fantastic!

    Good beer. Food is okay. Interesting neighborhood .

    Marie-Sophie Poli · April 11, 2013
  • Mike K.

    Beer is good, food not so much. The 'Steak Frites' costs $15 and is mostly fat and is not a decent cut of meat

    Mike Kobit · March 21, 2013
  • Jeff T.

    Next time trying a veg meal. The brisket was mad chewy but the squash and sprouts it came with were excellent.

    Jeff Totzek · January 30, 2013
  • Seliya G.

    Unlike the rest of the people, I personally didn't like the pumpkin beer... It was pretty strong and left a strong after taste that was unpleasant.

    Seliya Guo · January 12, 2013

    Tuesday night at Elysian is Friday night atmosphere.

    The Avatar Jasmine IPA is just phenomenal. Get it on draft if available.
