My buddy and I stopped here for lunch. It was our first destination of an inpromptu food/beer crawl.
Was very impressed as soon as I walked in. The atmosphere is impressive. Very good utilization of space, 360 bar, giant windows looking into brewery operation. The space is set up for success.
We each ordered a flight, they were out of the IPA, which I didn't mind too much. I have become a little burnt out on the incessive extremeness of IPA's lately. Every beer I sampled ranged from a safe and average representation to very tasty. Honestly, none of the beer blew me away, but that being said, I enjoyed all the brews and would gladly pay for and consume them again. Bartender was very helpful and knowledgable. We were the first ones there, however, so it's not like he was busy.
The menu impressed me. Very diverse with selections you can't find at most brewery/restuarants. We got the sausage and ham plate appetizer. Very good. I got the fish and chips. My friend got the Flemish stew. All three dishes were displayed nicely and tasted great. There was a duck confit pizza on the menu that really interested me, but I knew the day ahead of me had a lot of beer and food waiting, so wanted to keep it lighter. Next time, I will put that in my belly.
Really enjoyed this place. It's the overall experience. Like I said, beer was good, nothing to rave about, but couple that with the interesting menu and fantastic atmosphere, Revolution is a definite hang. I see myself visiting this establishment again.
