Revolution isn't too far off I-90/94. It is in a neighborhood that appears to be re-vitalizing. It is difficult to park near the pub - mostly just parallel parking on the street. The place was packed on a Friday night. I should have expected that. Inside is not very big. The bar is right as you walk in the door. I was able to circle around to near the server's station to try some beers. Anti-Hero and Iron Fist are really good ale. I got a growler of Coup d'Etat (their saison). It was fantastic, but $20 for a growler refill is a bit expensive for my taste (I'm not exactly a big city guy used to big city prices). They had a few other of their beers on tap plus a nice collection of guest taps. I did not eat there. I was their to sample beers and fill a growler for a friend. It was a cool place that I'd go back to, but at lunch time and not on a weekend.

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.
