In December 2018, the first location of Elysian Brewing on Capitol Hill closed for refreshing. The brewpub re-opened to the public on May 6th, and my Seattle Foodie Podcast co-host Nelson Lau and I had a chance to attend a sneak peek.
Nelson and I have spent a lot of time at the Cap Hill space over the years. It was striking to experience their open concept where you can see the brewing process. The space also offers more seating and while there are improvements to the space, it still feels very familiar.
Old doors are part of the new design
With 20 rotating taps, Elysian will focus on smaller batches of beer, allowing for more experimentation. I enjoy favorites as well as seasonal and limited offerings. Elysian has a brew for everyone!
My favorite beer of the night was Mango #5!
Food lovers can enjoy brunch on the weekends and a from-scratch focused menu. Here’s a sample of some of the food we got to try.
Elysian offers some of my favorite sour beers! Their menu offers lighter items which are perfect for the summer and heartier items that will keep you warm in the winter.
I loved seeing the new space and reminiscing about the past. The open concept is perfect for groups of all sizes. Thanks to Elysian Brewing for hosting!
