imageSeattle, WA – This one arrived last week and we could not pass up the opportunity to support two local businesses.

Coming soon to a grocery and alehouse shelf near you, Dragonstooth Stout is getting a facelift. For a great many years the brewery has exercised its beliefs in (mostly Greek) mythology, with beers names Prometheus, Loki, and Cyclops, the brewery entertained us with their tap handles and bottle designs.

Recently the brewery started updating their labels with designs like the Immortal IPA displaying what appears to be Zeus clutching several lightening bolts, to the Dark O’ The Moon Stout (design circa 2009?).

Today we are proud to announce that starting with the Dragonstooth Stout release, you will start seeing a shift from Greek mythology to a more “NW mythology”.

“We thought about how so many people wear their stories on their body through tattoo art, and we immediatly sought out our friend and local tattooer, Joe Who (Pierced Hearts Tattoo). He drew up some gnarly artwork that we think is a great new representation of our Dragonstooth Stout.” –source, Matt Thompson Sales Representative for Elysian Brewing.

Brewery Description

DRAGONSTOOTH is rich, full-bodied and complex Imperial Oatmeal Stout; Made with 10% rolled oats, roasted barley, Crystal, Munich and chocolate malts. Bittered with Magnum, finished with Cascade and Centennial hops. 7.5% ABV

As always if you don’t see (the updated) Dragonstooth Stout on the shelf or at a bar near you, ask your server or grocer to get some!

About Elysian Brewing Company

The Elysian was founded in 1995 by principals Dick Cantwell (President/Head Brewer), Joe Bisacca (CFO/Head of Operations) and David Buhler (Sales & Marketing Director). Our first Seattle location, a 220-seat beer hall and our main brewery, opened in 1996 on Capitol Hill, Seattle’s most populous neighborhood. In 1997 Elysian was chosen to operate a pub and small brewery at Gameworks—a large entertainment complex owned by Universal Studios, Dreamworks & Sega. Elysian left this partnership in 2002 upon expiration of the five-year contract. A short year later Elysian opened TangleTown, an 80-seat neighborhood brewery/bistro. With a 3-bbl pilot brewery, Elysian-TangleTown acted as the brewers' test kitchen, fueling the creative fires and helping cement Elysian's reputation as Seattle’s top brewpub. The most recent addition to the Elysian empire, Elysian Fields, opened in August 2006. Perched next to Seattle’s two sports arenas, Fields seats 400 and packs the house at lunch and on gamedays. It is typical for us to offer over twenty different Elysian beers between the three locations.
