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.

Well, we tried to go to the BrewPub but the wait was about 45min. No problem, it was Sunday at 1:30pm. We took the 1.5mi cruise to their Brewery/Brew Room. This was perfect! Its a fairly hidden location, just a small sign on a warehouse door. We walked in and I felt a breeze of heaven! They have a huge Tasting Room next to their Brew Room. Long bar with a wall filled with tappers, and a cooler filled with their brews(great prices too)
We sat down and tried their brand new BBA Barleywine as well as their Stout, Red Ale, Black IPA, and Smoked Lager. We also bought bottles of the BBA BW and their BBA Porter for enjoyment at home!
I am probably nit-picking at this point, but I would've liked to see some of their Special BBA brews on tap aside from just the Barleywine. Also, again nit-picking(and Im sure its a LAW) but you're not allowed to open the bottles they sell there. No problem.
This is a spot I will definitely visit again!
Seems like they allow you to bring in your own food, as we saw a table of people with outside food, as they don't serve food at the brewery.
They do tours here, but we just enjoyed some brews and left!
