    Looks like the late session is sold out. PM me if anyone has an extra for the 5-8 session. I had a friend miss out and I am already going to that session.

    Ya'll have fun. Wish I could come.. but with a Minny trip, Cider Summit, Hunah, D/NOTLA, Stoutfest, and all sorts of stuff coming up.. had to bow out.

    But the event sounds amazing. Cheers

    Another awesome event. Fantastic food and drinks of course, and it was unexpectedly all you can eat as well as drink. Met some cool people playing shuffle board. I won't be missing any future Rev events.

    The food and beer never ran out. There were lines (which were at most 5 minutes long) for the first hour, but after that you could walk up to any table and just grab more drinks and food with no wait. Also the bar was their full bar, not just the event beers which is great.
    On top of all that for $50, you also got a bottle of the 3rd Anniv beer which is $15. So really you bought 3 hours of all you can eat and drink for $35. So worth it

    That party was AWESOME. Honestly Rev can do no wrong. GREAT pairings, not too crowded, minimal lines, etc... I could go on and on. Cherry on top was when the DJ mixed 'Swimming Pools' into '1st of the Month' into some Erykah Badu, and then, for the Coup de grĂ¢ce, 'Posse on Broadway'

    If I could invest $$$ into that place right now I would. They just do it right.

    My mom and I had a great time. The duck ragout was to die for, and everything else was just as great. Also awesome that all the food items were served by the same rev brew employees that came up with the recipes and prepared them.

    That is especially cool, and I didn't even realize it until close to the end of the afternoon session, when the Hop Rocks lady starting talking about how she created them. Kind of a weedy poprock, love it.

    Amazing event, the second session has been great. The bring in quite a few people but it is never crowded, lines move quickly, and the food and beer pairings are amazing. Revolution is top notch.

    I just woke up from a post rev brewing beer nap, and realized how that party was a f*ckin steal. rev is the shit in chicago. and cascade pop rock candy is something I'd love to make if only there wasnt a hop shortage. (((though Im probably in the minority, I wanna thank Rev for also not having some metal music playin or some other shit. I loved the DJ that did LCD soundsystem into MGMT into Modest Mouse into Phoenix. It spoke to my cool guy indie heart.)))

    Coming from Michigan, I can say this is one of the best run events outside of Shorts anniversary party. Very impressed and very happy. Cheers Revolution!

    Yeah, Kurt right? We had a great game going until last call and we all made a dash for the bar. Ah well some other drunk people got to have fun for the last 15 minutes.

    Sad I couldn't make it to this, also had family in town since Wednesday and there was no way to make this happen. Glad to hear Revolution continues to do great work though.

    Anniversary beer was spectacular, I was a little skeptical of a rum barrel brew as they don't always turn out well.

    Really fun event. The veal sweetbreads, Siracha beer jerky and the duck ragout were awesome. Heck all the food was very good though. Also got quite a bit of enjoyment out of seeing some older people hammered bustin moves on the dance floor.

    Great event. Food and beer were great. I went to the early session and it had the perfect amount of people. Never felt crowded. The 3rd year brew was a little boozy and can probably sit in a cellar for a while and still be great.

    Rev is knocking it out of the park with the parties. My favorite part were the glass cleaning stations. Great idea.

    I am looking forward to the next party.

    Is there more anniversary bottles for sale, or was there just enough for the attendees?
