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.

Did not have anything to eat. No flights, but "samples" offered at 2 to 4 dollars per pour. Good music and friendly vibe; neighborhood feeling and lots of friendly folk. Knowledgeable staff. Oh yea, tasty draft beer!

The beer was great first time having it. The place had a great garage/factory type feel. The tour guide was new which she pointed out and I've been on several so it wasn't a big deal. The girls behind the counter had plenty of info and wereally very chatty about the beers and it was one of my better brewery experiences.

Good food, good beer. Their taproom at the brewery is excellent too. One of my favorite brew pubs/breweries in the Chicago area. Getting a lot better at their barrel program.
