First trip to Revolution Brewing Company since the move to Chicago. Fairly large bar area with some dining tables located around the center. Nice place to be if you don't mind being around people. Selection of their own beers as well as some guest taps. Their list of beers composes a nice selection and is bound to satisfy people of multiple tastes. A couple more experimental beers while I was there included Pablo Picasso (Belgian dark aged in oak barrels and on sour cherries) as well as Rosa which is brewed with hibiscus. Food seemed a little expensive until I saw the size of the burger, making me feel better. A lot of food with each order, so take that into account. Will surely be going here again.

Third stop on a recent trip to Chicago with my girlfriend.

VIBE: the place was packed when we came on a Saturday night. Obviously a popular spot. Had to wait for our table so we grabbed some drinks and stood by the bar for about 15 minutes. Cool atmosphere and modern decor with multiple dining areas surrounding a gargantuan, brightly-lit bar.

SERVICE: the bartender was quick to fetch our orders and the waitress was very efficient at getting our food, beer, and wine to the table. They weren’t the most personable servers (since they were so freakin’ busy), but they certainly took care of our needs.

SELECTION: 8 house beers, all different styles, 2 casks, with La Trappe Isid’or, Dark Horse Sapient Trip, Victory Summer Love, and Anderson Valley Boontlinger Weiss serving as the guest draughts. Didn’t notice any bottles. I ordered the Anti-Hero IPA and Coup d’Etat Saison, both of which impressed me. The lady was relieved to find a pinot grigio of her liking.

FOOD: way better than we expected. I went for the Blackened Pork Belly and Clear Lakes Rainbow Trout; my girl had the Soft Pretzel and Spring Vegetable salad. All of the fare was delicious and carefully presented. In fact, it seemed like a few of the patrons were here just for the cuisine.

OVERALL: Revolution is a well rounded brewpub that delivers on all fronts. Although the guest taps didn’t blow me away (in comparison to Haymarket, for instance), the house brews were flavourful and satisfying, and the food was superb. A great spot for dinner and drinks.

Went on a Sunday afternoon before catching the last acts of Lollapalooza.

The set up is a very open area with a long double sided bar in the middle. Every time I've been in here regardless of the day/time it's been packed so expect to wait a bit, but they are good about accomodations.

Their beer line up is pretty good. A few I've noticed they have all the time and they rotate through a good amount of seasonals. For hop heads there always seem to be at least 3 Revolution IPA's on tap. They also have a small guest list serving stuff from the area usually. Founder's and FFF can be found on tap a lot.

The food is fantastic and reasonally priced. They have some unique appetizers and sandwiches and everything I've ever had has been great. My favorite brewpub to go to when I'm in Chicago.

I've been to Revolution a few times and feel like I should write a review. As of now, their canning/bottling line is not up, so the only way to imbibe their beers is at the brewpub. They have about 9 of their own beers and 4 guest beers on tap. They also have a rotating cask and a nice amount of bottles.

The regular lineup is a pale, IPA, porter, golden ale, saison, wit, and brown. I enjoyed all the regulars except the brown. The porter, IPA, and saison were exceptional.

They have rotating seasonals and one-offs. Their stouts and barrel-aged beers are delicious. They drop and add a new beer every couple of weeks.

Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and generally likable people. Last call is around 2AM as well, so that's nice.

The food here is also spectacular. The dishes are downright decadent and trendy as hell with ingredients like shallots, capers, and gorgonzola. This is definitely miles above your average bar fare and the price reflects that.

Its tough to rate its prices. The food is expensive and if you eat a meal, expect to pay a pretty penny. Pints, however, are reasonable ($5-$7) and often they randomly grant a free pint or two if you've bought many.

Overall, Revolution is an excellent brew/gastropub. The beers are good enough that the pub would do fine without the kitchen and the food is good enough that the restaurant would do fine without the brewery. Just a great place and I'm really happy to have it so nearby. One of the musts if you're getting into the Chi-town beer scene.

This place is in a pretty cool neighborhood that seems to be re-developing nicely. Parking can be a challenge as there is no parking lot and street parking is always a crap shoot, especially on busier days. I visited with friends on a Wednesday evening and we scored a parking spot about 1.5 blocks away. Victory!

The inside of this place is super cool. Seriously, the decor really sets the mood, with lots of dark carved wood on the bar and large windows facing the street that can be opened in nicer weather. The beer selection was impressive to say the least. The Revolution brews were very well made, and they let you buy small pours (which are cheap) so you can try a bunch of different stuff. I really liked the rye stout they had on during my visit. They also have a huge bottle list representing the best of what can be had in Chicago from Belgium, Britain, and Germany as well as the US and Canada. Prices were fair and pretty competitive for being in the City.

Food was totally great. Listen, I am a pudgy cheeseburger eating craft beer loving kind of guy and they served me the best cheeseburger I have ever had, and that is saying something. The bacon fat popcorn appetizer was also a big hit with my group.

Overall this is a totally outstanding place that is worthy of the title beer destination. I will be back often.

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.

Stopped in here on the way to DLD. Pretty much average brew pub feel and look. Nothing worth noting in the atmosphere department.

I had the cask IPA which was awesome. It sat slowly cascading for a solid five minutes. The servers were doing their best with the place being packed to the rafters. It was a Saturday afternoon.

The draft selection was solid. Quite a variety of offerings from their lineup. Plenty of bottles to choose from. Lots of imports and Midwest craft favorites.

We didn't eat but the guy next to me had a burger that looked amazing.

Overall another solid brewpub in Chi-town.

Went to this place for "Beer Fistival 2011" and had a great time. They have a lot of really really good beers. I was most impressed with their darker beers like the Sodom (especially the barrel aged Sodom) and the Wee Heavy.

A-cool atmostphere centered around a 360-degree bar with several areas of taps. Lot of wood work, and nice-sized wood booths galore.

Q-the beer is excellent, and the food is great too if you're into stuff like pulled pork, brats, etc.

S-can't really say since i was here for a party. the staff seemed reasonably friendly, although one of their main brewers seems to be a little stuck up which is a bit weird. Dude your life is about brewing beer, you're supposed to be cool!!

S-good beer selection; not very good food selection. don't come here if you're a vegetarian, their "tofu hot dog" is universally deplored.

F-i loved it. ihad a pulled pork sandwich with jalapeno cole slaw on it. simple but very good.

A: hard rock/punk meets yuppie brew pub, nice combination, clean, interesting layout, easy parking on street (i was there for weekday lunch, so keep in consideration when visiting on weekend).

Q: Nice beer and food menu, clean, hip layout. Worth visiting.

S: amazing, friendly, fast, good beer knowledge and offered great pairing ideas, brought samples

S: 9 House Beers on-tap, 7 Guest Beers on-tap, and over 70 bottles

F: The menu was upscale pub fair. I had Duck Confi Salad with greens, fruit, goat cheese, etc. AMAZING!

V: The food is a little above average in price, but it was delicious and we are talking about a small local brewpub in Chicago. So well worth it.

GREAT, CHECK THIS PLACE OUT!

Revolution is a fairly average looking place, taking no hard style cues, despite the 'Revolution' moniker. The room is clean and open, manned with a hipster-type staff. Food seemed okay, the Pizza was particularly well-recieved. Some of the beers they were brewing were excellent, others were decent. I liked BA Sodom a lot, and had several glasses. Something tells me BA Sodom is not normally on-tap, however. Overall, I thought this place underacheiving; that said, it is still really solid (just not optimizing its potential.)

One of our stops on the way over to DLD '11.

Really a neat place where you can grab a bite to eat and a beer (we did not get anything, but what other people around us were eating looked amazing!). A good selection of their own beers as well as guest taps and a bottle list.
The bar is right smack dab in the middle of the place in an '0' shape. Cool decor and atmosphere for a saturday afternoon. We were in a hurry to hit up DLD, but this was a very cool place worth visiting if you happen to be in downtown Chicago.

First time visiting here for the BA Sodom release. Arrived at opening and were the first people there. Selection was fantastic. 7 or 8 of Revolutions brews were on tap and 4 or 5 guest drafts. I was there for the Rev brews. The bottle selection was very impressive as well.

The bartender girl was pretty informative and knew about the beers. The bar was beautiful wood sculpted and had to cost a pretty penny with the custom job. Place is clean, nice and with very good food. Only had the cheese tray and some ovelry fattening popcorn that was damn tasty. Look forward to returning on my next trip to Chicago.

Hit up revolution the the weekend of Dark Lord Day and got lucky. Place was slammed, probably because they were tapping a Barrel Age Sodom (Russian Imperial Stout) that was ABSOLUTELY mind blowing. Had a fairly long wait to get a table but ended up getting a spot at the bar which is where we wanted to be anyways. Food, service and of course the beer were all excellent. Easy to get to as well (off the blue line). Would recommend to anyone and will make sure to hit it again the next time I'm in Chicago. Oh and yeah, try the bacon fat sage popcorn while you wait for a seat, you won't regret it!

Stopped by here the Friday before Dark Lord. Place was packed, but service was still solid. We sipped the BA Sodom and munched on popcorn until a place became available to sit down and eat. I had a great burger and my friend enjoyed his pizza. We tried Anti Hero, Coup d'Etat, and Eugene and felt all were great beers. The BA Sodom was fantastic and one of the best beers I tasted all weekend, which is saying a lot as we tasted some great beers at Dark Lord Day. I'll definitely be stopping back in when in town.

First stop on the recent CTA pub Crawl. I can’t believe I have waited so long for a visit.

The rectangular bar is straight ahead as you enter the brewpub. There is a lounge area to your left and some stairs for the elevated area off to your right. The kitchen is slightly elevated open for viewing. The tanks are visible behind glass.
The interior designer gets a nod in my book. The bar has large wooden forearms & fists holding up the top half. The clenched fist is Revolutions signature. They incorporated wooden barrel staves in one of the walls. In addition, there are some stained glass windows near the brewing area and lots of wood and brick. The front windows open up to the street.

The food is very good and worth a visit in its own right. Try the chili, the pork belly sandwich or order the biscuits & gravy (made with Italian sausage) off the weekend brunch menu.

The beer is the real deal here. Lots of styles and choices. I had a refreshing wit, a well-made Czech Pilsner and a tasty Irish Dry Stout. They also offer a well thought out guest tap list and a pretty massive bottle list. Prices are very fair at $5.00 for house pints.

Service is friendly and has good beer knowledge. I also got to chat with the brewer for 10 minutes or so. He was very enthusiastic about the direction they are heading (expanding the upstairs and a new stand-alone production brewery). I have to agree with him as everything was top-notch during my visit.

I will be returning soon!

This place is hot stuff. After a day long seminar by the airport, I hopped the Blue Line to California (I think), and walked a half block to the bar. Revolution is located in a cool urban setting with lots of wood finishes, an O-shaped bar and a good amount of tables. Got here early and had no trouble getting a seat.

The beer was very good. I had a quick sampler, then a Eugene (a really nice porter) and a tasty Anti-Hero IPA. There was a nice collection of guest taps as well, but I was not there for that.

Food was quite tasty, highlighted by Bacon Fat Popcorn and a delicious burger.

Service was really outstanding. I hit the shift change and each of the four people who took an order or delivered a beer or food was friendly and competent.

I highly recommend this place.

First time here, earlier this week. I was very impressed all around. Group of about 20 of us went down, got a tour, had dinner and drinks. The brewery is quite impressive for how small it was and the guide was great and informative as well.

They had about a dozen of their beers on draft, including 2 on cask, one barrel aged and a few impressive guest taps and bottles. I was impressed with everything I tried and the generall consensus was that the beer was good to great overall.

Service was great, or waiter was very knowledgeable and the bartenders are very prompt as well. Food was good, including probably the best mashed potatoes I have ever had, highly recomended. Burgers and mussels where the other highlights.

This is a great space, a cool building, has a great atmosphere, with the open kitchen area, high ceilings, huge bar, good music (per my taste), and we got a look at the upstairs edition they are doing, looks incredible!

I will definitly be returning again, they seem to have a pretty good rotation on their beers, so I can try some new things and will be sure to order the Workingman Mild next time, as I hear its excellent, but never got around to it last time.

I live right by Revolution Brewing and I highly recommend it. Everything about this place is above average, and the food and drink is reasonably priced.

The big problem I have with this brew pub is it's always packed! If it's after 5PM it will be incredibly crowded. If you don't have a table or a spot at the bar things will be uncomfortable.

There is little they can do about it, as there aren't a whole lot more options in this part of Chicago, but it does mean you'll need to plan ahead.

Other than the crowd, this place is a terrific Logan Square option.

I've been to Revolution a bunch lately, so it's probably time to write a review.

Revolution is a very large space, with family-friendly booths on the right, the bar in the middle, and open seating on the left. The decor is mostly wood and metal and quite utilitarian in keeping with the theme, and the artwork is colorful in a propaganda kind of way. The fist-motif tap handles are a nice touch, although it makes it really hard to tell what's on-tap without looking at a menu. Things are very clean, including the washrooms, and there is a nice big window to see the brewing area in the rear left of the restaurant. My big gripe is that the "Communist/Revolutionary" aspect is only done half-heartedly - the music is a pretty generic mix of classic rock, the servers are a little too clean-cut, and the food and beer seems awfully decadent. It's like they gave up on the theme after designing the physical space - perhaps some social justice rallies and hunger strikes would help.

That being said, the beer is very good. It took them about 8 months to get things going, but it seems as they're tapping a new, quality beer every week or two. I think they've supplanted the other Chicago brewpubs in terms of overall quality, even though they don't have the same breadth of offerings as Goose Island Clybourn.

Service is fine, albeit a bit aloof and impersonal. You never have to wait much, but it always feels as if the employees are merely doing their job instead of promoting the high-quality craft beer.

Revolution only has about 8-10 of their own offerings, but this is supplemented by a healthy amount of guest taps and bottles (La Folie, Double Jack, and Lolita are some of my favorites). I'd probably be passed out before I managed to tick everything I wanted to try.

Food is a high point in my opinion. Plenty of veggie/vegan offerings for my wife are always a plus, and I've only encountered one or two duds on the menu (Tofu Chili Dog was a bit of a miss). Appetizers are inexpensive and varied if you don't want a full meal, and you could actually eat something healthy here if you wanted.

For Chicago, the prices are in line with most places, and it's relatively easy to get to on public transit. A definite must-visit if you are in town.

I have to temper this review by saying that this is a bit of a homer review as I can walk to this place in about ten minutes and have frequented it bi-monthly since it opened.

The building itself is amazingly restored and well decorated. They really went all out from the light fixtures made from the metal bands from bourbon barrels to the custom made bar with fist supports. My only complaint about the atmosphere, and it isn't one that they should want to fix any time soon is how crowded it gets on a given evening, and their lack of reservations.

The service is typically good with people knowledgable of beer, but occasionally there are servers that lack full knowledge of their line-up. Also, my wife has remarked about the "tude" of a couple of the hostesses on more than one occasion.

In addition to their their own beers they always have a a good line-up of guest beers and a nice bottle selection.

For what they are doing, their food is great, their pizza and burgers are all delicious and the meats are locally sourced. Every other entree that I have tried has not failed to impress from the fish and chips to the shepherd's pie. I have traveled a bit and I can say that they honestly have the best wings that I have ever had. Not typical Buffalo style, so I will not attempt to compare them to that, but trust me, they are worth it, and they come with their blue cheese potato salad, another great offering.

The prices are right on par for Chicago in regards to both beer and food.

As a whole, I really love this place and would highly recommend it as a great place for awesome craft beer and delicious food.

Visited 7/26/2010 with masterski, shortly after Kuma's Corner.

It was nice to walk a mile after eating about 5 lbs of food at Kuma's. The place was fairly empty (middle of the day on a week day). There is a nice bar with lots of room and plenty of tables around.

Tried the sampler which consisted of 7 house beers. I didnt realize at the time but I was told later that the mild was supposed to be a big hit. I didnt think much of it but I did like the IPA. Not quite sure what to make of the Rosie.

The service was kind of non existent but that's not all bad, as I got my sampler. The lady that sat next to us gave us crap for having out cell phones out. She then proceded to lecture us on how we should be here to enjoy the ambiance and unwind. I was there to enjoy the beer, and since the place was empty there wasn't much ambiance but she has a point.

Didn't eat. Would go back for some more ticks.

Came to revolution brewing over the thanksgiving break for a brewery tour. One of their brewers, Matty, took the group around and very humbly told us the story of the brewery and some of the beers they make.

I found the atmosphere to be very comfortable and laid back with local artwork on the walls and nice personal brewery touches. My favorite is the 99 bottles of beer chandelier hanging right above the entrance, closely followed by the fist all around the bar.

I wasn't able to try all the beer they have on tap because frankly there are so many. This brewery isn't afraid to explore many different styles. The ones I sampled were very tasty and I would highly recommend giving them a shot. I even came back for a growler of their IPA.

The staff seemed very knowledgeable about the beer and the major players (managers, brewers, owners) conducted themselves more like family then coworkers. That all adds to the cool vibe of the place. I really felt that people here enjoyed their jobs and it shows in the staff.

The food was very good and there is almost as much of a selection as the beer. They offer some vegan and vegetarian options but their homemade sausage is not to be missed. The only draw back is I found the food to be slightly pricey but the quality is way up there and worth every penny.

Went to the Revolution Brewing company twice over the weekend of November 12 - 15, 2010. The first time I went there (for lunch with my girlfriend) I easily spent over $100. The next day I went there for dinner and again managed to spend over $100. I kind of piggy backed on someone else's post about places to visit when in Chicago and this was one of the places I most wanted to visit. Reviewed from quality mental notes and memories...

Atmosphere: when I first walked into the place, I was pretty impressed. They have a really cool bar (love those four fists holding up the wood cabinets and tvs.) They had what looked like really cool modern revolution paintings and prints on the walls (although really quite pricey, very neat nonetheless.) You could see the brewing equipment from a little window next to the kitchen, and also the workings of the kitchen. When talking to some of the bartenders, they pointed out that some of the wall wood paneling were actually old barrels donated by Goose Island, which was pretty cool, but also the lights had metal fixings around them, which were actually the metal straps holding said barrels together, which I though was pretty unique. They had some good music playing in the background and in the bathroom (which I thought would be funny if they had some fascist or communist jabber going on instead...) and football on the TV, which is always enjoyable. The owner was even there giving a tour and even sat down at the bar afterwords to answer questions and to chat with fellow beer lovers.

Quality: The quality of the food, service and of course beer is top notch, which I will get into detail throughout the review. Very clean environment and a pleasure to take part of.

Service: Service was good. They were pretty busy at lunch time on a Saturday when we first went, but the bartenders did the best they could with the amount of people they had to serve, which was still pretty good. We received our brews pretty promptly and although our food took a bit longer...it had to cook after all, so I kind of expected that.

Selection: Now the selection of beer and food were both very good. They had about 8-12 house brews on the list (which were all amazing and unique...BA Eugene... :) and also included guest brews (they had Dark Horse and another...but I didn't go there to drink someone else's beers) And although I had my fair share of the speciality brews, I did make it a point to spread it out a bit and try some others.

Food: The food was very good and quite reasonable, especially for being in Chicago. Don't get me wrong, the Bacon Fat Popcorn sounds weird and gross...but it's AMAZING! We had it once each time we were there and mixing it in with the Beer Cheese Soup...heavenly. The burgers were also very good and so were the wings. We were going to make it a point to have some dessert, which also sounded amazing, but we just kind of forgot...

Value: Like I said before, considering we were in Chicago, I kind of expected it to be really expensive, but the prices were comparable with other big cities and considering how much we ate and drank (including t-shirts, glasses and growlers, the $100/trip was quite reasonable.)

Although I thought we were walking in a bad and sketchy part of town, and at any moment I could get shot or stabbed, the Revolution Brewing Company proved to be a haven for beer drinkers from all walks of life. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Chicago, and if I ever make it back there I will surely visit at least once or twice. Viva la Revolution!

One of the newer brewpubs in town and a great place to go for a fresh pint. The food is excellent, especially with the recent menu revamp. The beer is varied and if you join the mug club there are new beers about twice a month to try at a discount (if not free) and you can drink the regular beers from a larger mug for regular price. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, most importantly quick with a recommendation and a smile.

Be glad that we have a place like this if you live here, and visit when you come to town if you don't.

Walk in and saw a large rectangular, island bar in the middle with plenty of seating throughout. So I walked to the bar sat down, looked to the back and saw all the brewing equipment through a window. Has a nice clean, open feel.

So I look at the list of their beers on tap and see 8-10 which appears to be common for them. They also had a nice bottle list, but I didn't seriously peruse this since I knew I wanted one of their beers.

The bartender was knowledgeable about both beer in general and their beers specifically. Answered a couple of questions others had and was interesting just to talk to about beer. Obviously got proper glassware. The rest of the staff seemed helpful and enjoyable.

The milk stout I ended up getting was pretty good. A touch on the cold side when it was served, but not as bad as many bars, and it warmed to my preferred serving temp in a minute or two of me holding it. Other customers seemed to be enjoying their beer and the other beers looked good so quality shouldn't be a problem. Food also looked good, but I didn't try any. Pints were $5-6.

Seemed like a really nice brewpub. Pretty good beer, good service. I would have liked the price down a little, but it is pretty reasonable for everything. Worth a visit to have a tasty beer.
