Last week, Anheuser-Busch announced that it is acquiring Seattle-based Elysian Brewing Company, including the brewing facility in Georgetown and the four brewpubs throughout the city. Elysian’s co-owner and brewmaster, Dick Cantwell, says that he is focusing on “the opportunities it provides for our sales brand and our folks — education, experience, expansion.”
Elysian Brewing Company was founded in 1995 by Dick Cantwell, Joe Bisacca and David Buhler. The first Seattle location, including a beer hall and the main brewery, opened in 1996 on Capitol Hill. Today, there are four brewpubs throughout the city – Elysian Capitol Hill, Elysian Tangletown, Elysian Fields, Elysian BAR, and a full production brewery – Elysian Airport Way, in the Georgetown neighborhood.
Space Dust IPA is part of Elysian’s Manic IPA series. Once a seasonal offering, Space Dust will join Elysian’s year-round lineup. Space Dust is brewed with Citra, Amarillo, and Chinook hops from Yakima Valley, alongside a simple malt bill of Northwest pale, C-15 Crystal and Dextri-pils malts.
