Elephants/Pelican Brewery 1979 Pale Ale Launch Party

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, we are excited to announce our 1979 Pale Ale! With help from the amazing team at Pelican Brewing, we have joined forces to create a brand new brew. Stop by Elephants on April 19th to help us celebrate our birthday. We’ll supply the free beer and snacks. And did we mention T-shirt giveaways and other great beer gear?

We look forward to celebrating with you.

Cheers to 40 years!!

S’il Vous Plaît, Croque Monsieur

One of our most popular sandwiches is back for spring! After an extended tour of the Continent, the Croque Monsieur has returned, and he is as delicious as ever. Ham, Gruyére, sour cream and Dijon nestle together on our house-made English muffin bread, giving this dapper gentleman a rich and tangy taste sure to please. Make your date today with the most interesting sandwich in the world.

Add an egg for a Croque Madame!

Available at all of our locations.

Available at our NW 22nd and Corbett locations.
