Revolution sits on an intimate, quiet street outside of downtown Charlotte, in an old home that has the first floor converted into a beer bar. a solid list of taps, a wide variety of styles, and laid back conditions all make this a great place to hang out and enjoy a few pints.

atmosphere is a mix between a bed & breakfast, a deli-style restaurant, and a beer bar. the front door of the home serves as the main entrance, with the bar to the right, and seating around, as well as out on the front porch. the taps are all in one line, with around thirty to fourty in all (with very fresh lines throughout).

quality and service were excellent. bar keeps are quick to offer samples, and knowledgeable about their beer as well as upcoming tappings.

selection was impressive. a wide variety and deep list will satisfy any palate, with a decent bottle selection offered as well.

food was offered, but this BA only got the 'late night' offerings, which was only pizza by the slice. the pizza was well done and fresh, and went excellent with the two IPAs that it accompanied.

overall, this is a solid stop for tap beer in Charlotte. the quiet surroundings and quaint atmosphere make it very conducive to relaxing, and drinking great beer. cheers!

This was a Mellow Mushroom - it's still a pizza joint, with very good pie. They've expanded the bar - so there are plenty of places to sit. The bar's surfaced with some sort of laminate flooring - which I've not seen before and it's actually pretty cool. The beer selection is quite good - you'll find something you'll love, easily. Check their website - give 'em a call - one or two nights a week all their drafts are $3 each. There's a lot of stuff to do in this area, too - NODA. You've got NODA brewing, Heist Brewing, Birdsong Brewing, Growler's Pourhouse (small eclectic bar with some nice taps & cask brews), Cabo Fish Taco (killer food). Great arts district area of Charlotte. Give a shot - you'll dig it.

A great/amazing selection of dark beers. This is THE place that I go to get my fill of dark beers when I feel the need. The food is comparable to the NoDa area high quality and bit too elevated for my personal tastes, but my wife loves it. The pizza is well cooked. The servers could have done a better job and have a bit more knowledge. The biggest pain about this place is the parking as it is in the entire NoDa area.

Nice looking place in a fun and funky part of Charlotte. Has a charming feel of a sprawling old house, lots of light and with a very comfortable and casual feel. The bar is to the right as you enter. Beer wise, they feature a way better then satisfactory array of the good stuff you expect nowadays at a quality beer bar/restaurant. A bunch of the locals, regionals and a few national heavy hitters.

Tasty food, a variety of pizzas, artisinal cheeses, salads, sandwedges, everything very fresh, made on premises, local ingrediants....you know the deal.

Nice place for a relaxed date, fine to take the family or for a tasty bite and a beer anytime.
Well worth a visit.

Just down the block from the worthy Salud bottle shop, as well as the rest of the NODA spots

This location is located on the corner as you come into the NoDa area. It is quite easy to spot as you can tell by the BA photo for here that it is an old house essentially. Upon walking up there will be a stairway that leads up to a porch that is built of brick. Upon walking into the establishment you can see that the theme of the old fashioned house has been carried on throughout. The bar is to your right when you walk in for those wondering. I went here with caSSino and the head brewer of NoDa Brewing, so we opted to get a table to sit at. There was plenty of seating with a mixture of bar, table, and booth seats to go around. Upon looking over the menu I noticed that there were quite a few North Carolina highlighted brews on the beer menu which is always nice to see when you go somewhere new. There was also a decent selection of brews from outside of NC as well. I was with the head brewer of NoDa, so I opted to choose his Coco Loco myself. The food menu was pretty nice as well. I settled on the steak with mashed potatoes. Excellent choice despite them being known for their pizzas. A really nice location that I know I will be visiting again in the near future.

Been here many times, finally taking a second to review. Trendy No-Da area. Really the only place I regularly go to in the area but there are plenty of other restaurants.

An old house or private business turned into a restaurant. Earth tones, somewhat artsy interior. Bar area is smallish square footage wise, but the patio is covered and quite large.

Bartenders are always chatty and know the beer. I go on Sundays when it is nice and relaxing, I guess it can get quite busy on the other weekend nights.

Beer selection is always top notch and loaded with North Carolina brews. Also get renoun regional and national brews, but the locals are what make this place more unique. Bottles are a little more large regional and national micro, but you'll come here for the drafts. Good range of styles and prices for those concerned about price.

A top 5 place in the city for sure.

I've enjoyed many meals here. Great for bringing the kids due to the fish tank and pizza. Gelato is great too. One of the city's best draft selections. Fits right into this "funky" part of Charlotte.

Great place for pizza and beer. The beer list continues to improve especially compared to when they first opened. Strong emphasis on NC beers. Great food and most the servers are fairly beer literate.

Over my many visits this is a consistent performer and be sure to check out the board for new beers not on the menu.
