I got to Revolution before noon on a Saturday and was surprised to see it already quite busy. Nice contemporary (but not corporate) feel to the place. I sat down next to the row of clenched fist taps. Was greeted by a very friendly bartender and asked about a flight - they don't really do flights, but they do samples so essentially you build your own flight with the samples. They had around 10 of their own beers on tap as well as 3 or 4 guest taps. Their beer menu indicated a very good bottle selection.

There were three people working the bar section and I was impressed by how they worked as a team with each of them taking a turn serving me. That's often a bad thing, but in this case they got everything right. Loved the enthusiasm and friendliness of the servers, it really sets the mood for a good time. All the beers that I tried were quite good. Had a rueben and blue cheese potato salad which were nicely executed. Not sure if or when I'll ever be back in Chicago but I would definitely be stopping by this place again.

Stopped by while on business in Chicago. Had time for a quick stop and a bit of Beer Safari. Plenty of tasty beers to try and very good food menu. Enjoyed being in a bar setting and still having so many beers to try... both Revilution and guests. Couple of great one offs as well. Good people and good swag too. Definitely a stop when in Chicago

A must hit, Chicago institution. Solid stable of beers. You've probably had most of them before, but you've gotta have them here. Order your favorite Rev brew, get some duck fat popcorn, and breathe in the Chicago. You'll be glad you did.

We went on a Saturday afternoon around 2 p.m. We were seated immediately at a high top table near windows that were open to the street. The interior was clean and comfortable. Our server was friendly and helpful. There are about twenty Revolution beers on tap, some of which were brewpub exclusives. There is a selection of beers and ciders in bottles/cans. The bar also has wine, cocktails and booze. The food menu is not large but the appetizer and pizza we had were both good. I will definitely go back.
