buy 10,000 pints - get 1 free

a slight variation on the recurring theme another 18 year check-in chance to ask yourself which bar stool were you sitting on in 1996? when pints were $2 served up in Imperial 20 ounce glasses there was no hard liquor and a tiny non-smoking section a rather limited menu featuring fish & chips with a free pool table downstairs and "darts" was darts and you could sit outside on the back porch and actually see the sky and get some sun when you were rocking Onza clipless pedals and purple barends with matching anodized quick-release skewers wearing XL Dinosaur Jr T-shirts and cutoff cargo shorts and 1221 East Pike was way off the beaten path on the fringes of Capitol Hill happy 18th birthday to the Elysian Brewing Company  ---  despite some poor management decisions and whack wacky things here and there there is no doubt Mr. Dick Cantwell  brews a fine beer and now you can find it in six packs in every corner store from here to Ashtabula  



the Elysian Empire is now up to 4 restaurants and one giant huge honking brewery in Georgetown

One time 27 hurled on the back porch but it was really easy to clean it up. 18 years later like
