The Elysian Brewing Company was founded in 1996 by Joe Bisacca, Dick Cantwell and Dave Buhler. It began as a concept to establish a large brewpub in the Seattle market, but with a grander scale of wholesale distribution than your average brewpub. The original location, in Seattle’s Capitol Hill, houses a 20-barrel brewing system and a full service restaurant and bar. Today, Elysian Brewing Company operates three Seattle brewpubs (Elysian Capitol Hill, Tangletown in the Greenlake area and Elysian Fields by Centurylink Field) and a production brewery in the Georgetown neighborhood. Known for variety, Elysian has brewed well over 200 different beers from classic to experimental since opening in 1996.
