Saturday/ Yay! the Elysian is open again!

Our favorite Capitol Hill brewpub – the Elysian Brewery – will reopen on Monday after renovations that had taken more than four months. We were able to get in and get treated to a special pre-opening beer tasting event on Saturday. There is a lot to like about the changes they had made to the inside, and we had a lot of fun tasting the new beers on offer. Cheers!

Elysian Capitol Hill Brewery is on Pike and 13th Avenue.
New tiling at the entrance.
The main counter has giant black vintage lamp sconces said to have been found in Poland, with the rest of the interior in black and cozy wooden ceilings and beams.
What it’s all about: the beer! We tasted beers called Space Fuzz, Snail Bone, Baby Bone and Glitter. This is a Snail Bone, brewed as an American IPA. The stuff is potent: 8.5% alc/ volume! The food menu did get a makeover as well, and we were told everything on the menu will be made from scratch.
The area at the back features a few new fermentation vessels, allowing more types of beers to be brewed. Each new batch takes about two weeks in a vessel. The shuffleboard table is new, too.
