Final stop of a long weekend in Chicago. So glad we delayed the drive home in favor of brunch at Revolution. I'm not sure how it could have been a better experience.

Arrived at 11:30a, and were greeted with an incredibly short wait of maybe 5 minutes or so.

15 or 16 beers on tap, plus a cask, three of which were bourbon barrel aged.

Modest prices for pints - 5 to 8 bucks, and 2$ for 5oz samples for standard offerings and another buck or two for the barrel aged variation samples.

Wide variety of styles, pils, wit, IPA, porter, dubbel, wheat wine. Damn, I wish I'd have had another couple hours to sit at the bar.

And the food ? Seriously ? Wow ! Crazy good menu, again at a modest price point.

In front of me was an Hombre Burger - fresh beef with chihuahua cheese, smoked poblano pepper, red pepper crema, avacado, and tortilla strips w/ bleu cheese potato salad for 12$.

Great service - prompt, friendly, informative and knowledgable.

A must stop.

The first time I went to Revolution Brewery was for the release of Deth's Tar. I vaguely remember the night as I had one too many of the limited release Stout. I recall a live folk band that was tearing the place up, with a tuba player that drank like a fish. Not to mention that episode 4-6 of the original Star Wars was playing.... I did escape with a whole case of Deth's Tar, shirts, and a revolution Brewery sign.
