First stop on the recent CTA pub Crawl. I can’t believe I have waited so long for a visit.

The rectangular bar is straight ahead as you enter the brewpub. There is a lounge area to your left and some stairs for the elevated area off to your right. The kitchen is slightly elevated open for viewing. The tanks are visible behind glass.
The interior designer gets a nod in my book. The bar has large wooden forearms & fists holding up the top half. The clenched fist is Revolutions signature. They incorporated wooden barrel staves in one of the walls. In addition, there are some stained glass windows near the brewing area and lots of wood and brick. The front windows open up to the street.

The food is very good and worth a visit in its own right. Try the chili, the pork belly sandwich or order the biscuits & gravy (made with Italian sausage) off the weekend brunch menu.

The beer is the real deal here. Lots of styles and choices. I had a refreshing wit, a well-made Czech Pilsner and a tasty Irish Dry Stout. They also offer a well thought out guest tap list and a pretty massive bottle list. Prices are very fair at $5.00 for house pints.

Service is friendly and has good beer knowledge. I also got to chat with the brewer for 10 minutes or so. He was very enthusiastic about the direction they are heading (expanding the upstairs and a new stand-alone production brewery). I have to agree with him as everything was top-notch during my visit.

I will be returning soon!

This place is awesome. If the fact that this is a Brewpub separate from the brewery turns you off... Change your opinion. This place is great.

Best newer brewery to the ChiTown area. A must stop when I'm town. Great beers. Try the line of Hero bombers.
