Murray Stenson fans, you just have to wait one more month before you see the living legend behind the bar again.

In May, Stenson will be a part of what is  arguably the biggest cocktail bar opening in Seattle in 2014 –  The Elysian Bar at 1516 2nd Ave. (between Pike and Pine) in downtown.

The Elysian Brewing Co , one of the largest breweries in the state, is making a foray into craft cocktails. It’s late to this game, but they’re sparing no expense to play catch up, making some splashy hires.
