The brewers who launched Elysian knew what great beer was. They first opened a beer hall and brewery in 1996 and over the years, their devotion to delivering great beer to the public only strengthened. That devotion just recently translated into a mister of a beer, an imperial IPA dubbed Konishiki (after a legendary sumo wrestler). It's just the latest in their line of amazing and buzz-worthy beers.
