A group of five us stopped by last week to take the brewery tour and I'm glad we did.

The bar area is located inside a large warehouse where they have their new shiny production facility. It's in a fenced off corner of the brewery, with all the good stuff visible to your eye, including a couple nice racks of barrels with goodies aging in them.

The bar is beautiful and seems to go on forever. They can really throw a nice party here. They had about 12-15 beers on tap, with a bit of everything. They brew so close to style, I really like it. They don't do much off the wall stuff (not yet at least), but with the production facility in full go now, I'm sure the brewpub will start to experiment a bit more.

We went on the brewery tour and it was short and sweet. They have a beautiful facility, and I would definitely recommend not only checking out the bar, but going on the tour.

Vibe was loud, dark, industrial, huge, popcorn machine! Long tables with benches, lots of room for big groups. I saw people bringing in take out food.

Good selection of their brews on tap and in bottles/cans. Was able to get full or small pours.

Service was a bit rushed and inattentive, but it was crowded, so I don't blame them. I did not have to wait long for a pour.

Massive space, but a cool atmosphere with the barrels and huge-wall-covering American flag. Compared to the brewpub, the taplist has always been superior. Service though is a bit more rushed and not as friendly. Still a great place to stop and comes highly recommended.

Visited last winter with a meeting of the Illinois Chapter of the Congress for a New Urbanism. (Full disclosure: I'm on their Board.)
The theory that I've seen confirmed increasingly since this visit by various writers/bloggers is that one of the key ingredients of healthy urbanism is brewpubs and breweries; hence, our meeting here of an unusually high attendance of over 30.

After a long social hour and sampling various renditions of the stellar Eugene and other brews they do not can often (if at all), we had a tour of the facility by an animated employee who obviously loved his job. Interesting. He talked not only about Revolution, but its competition... most of whom are upstarts. Will the cycle be unbroken?

Of course, I rode my bike home (4 miles) on a cold winter night.
But I was a happy man. I proved two key theories in one evening: brewing makes urban life better; and dark beers make winter more tolerable.

I just may do all this again... so the taps can be counted and I get a photo for every brew I taste.
Or, perhaps you do that... as this is taproom and tour is not to be missed.
