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.

After a trip to Wreck-less on record store day and and a mega burger from Kumas a friend and I stopped into Revolution for a couple pints. The place was busy on a Saturday afternoon with the bar being full and tables filled up. After grabbing a beer menu a few spots opened up at the bar so we sat quickly and ordered our first round. They had a cask of double fist dry hopped w/ crystal so of course I had to go with that. Very bright and flavorful, couldn't have asked for a better beer at that moment.

The place didn't have much character to it, you could see there fist logo all over and there brewing system in the back of the building behind a glass wall. Other then that it was kind of generic. The service was prompt and courteous. after our first round we got another. this time a Belgian pale ale dry hopped with citra (tastey but it got better as it warmed up).

The selection was about 13 deep with all of there main stays and a few I've never seen before. In all that beer was fresh and tasty the prices where average but the atmosphere was meh. Good place to stop if you're in the neighborhood.

Not understanding the check amount. For that amount of money I should have been full. Kinda loud. I'm old and don't like that amount of noise. Server could care less about waiting on us. Expected more than got. We will try it again and will leave another review.
