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.

This review is for the brewery taproom.
Visited on a Friday night. Lots of people around for a fun and vibrant scene. You enter through a nondescript door on the side of the brewery building that you could miss if you blink at the wrong time. Go up some stairs and around a corner and enter into a massive taproom. Big bar, lots and lots of tables and the full-on industrial vibe. The best part: Those 16 taps of great beer. Bottles and cans and swag available as well.
The service was excellent. No food served at the taproom but the barkeeps are very helpful and provide flyers from nearby places that deliver to the taproom. That led us to some excellent pizza.
I asked for a flight of their limited beers and said a I wasn't afraid to "go big." Three of the 4 beers in my flight were around 10%. All were excellent. Well done.
Lots of nice touches here: Love the water station prominently placed and the cheesy slasher flick on the screens.
The beers were just great. love this place.
