I got to Revolution before noon on a Saturday and was surprised to see it already quite busy. Nice contemporary (but not corporate) feel to the place. I sat down next to the row of clenched fist taps. Was greeted by a very friendly bartender and asked about a flight - they don't really do flights, but they do samples so essentially you build your own flight with the samples. They had around 10 of their own beers on tap as well as 3 or 4 guest taps. Their beer menu indicated a very good bottle selection.
There were three people working the bar section and I was impressed by how they worked as a team with each of them taking a turn serving me. That's often a bad thing, but in this case they got everything right. Loved the enthusiasm and friendliness of the servers, it really sets the mood for a good time. All the beers that I tried were quite good. Had a rueben and blue cheese potato salad which were nicely executed. Not sure if or when I'll ever be back in Chicago but I would definitely be stopping by this place again.
