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!

Amazing food, some of the best beer Chicago has to offer. They always have some good barrel aged beers. If Revolution isn't your thing they have a good bottle list too.

Another fine brewery to make room for in your pub crawl. Food has been very good each time we have made the journey. Beer is really good, Anti-Hero is outstanding, as it will stand up to many of the crazy hoppy beers.

Very nice atmosphere, selection of the beers, and bottle menu is always very nice. Good merch selection, service has usually been very attentive, one time a worker was a little pre-occupied, but did seem to recognize us, so not a biggy.
