    So how many tickets were actually available for this? People seem to still be able to buy them.

    I know they said 1/3 of their brewery opening party...but i dont even know the ticket counts for that

    If I wasnt already out of town, I would be all over this. Sounds way more fun than the opening party.

    I'm in. I've missed too many good Rev Brew parties to not jump on this wagon. It's wishful thinking, but if I could get a liter of BA Baracus, I think I might have an awesome time, that I won't remember :)

    My brother-in-law and I are deciding whether to do this or not, and seeing as we really only want to watch college football and drink beer, we'll probably stick to another bar during the day. Definitely hitting Revolution Friday night though!

    Well, my husband and I did buy tickets, so I'm looking forward to this! Who could say no to free carny games?

    When did you purchase the tickets? Anyone that bought them after the 17th (I think) will have a ticket waiting at will-call.

    You'll have no problem whatsoever, I'm fairly sure. Not a busy part of town. For a good alcohol-buffering Mexican meal beforehand go over on Belmont to the intersection with California & Elston and eat at La Traspasada. Their black salsa is the shiiiiit. Or go to the Joong Boo market a quarter-mile west at 3333 N. Kimball for a hearty bowl of bibimbap.

    You definitely will find parking. If not on Kedzie, then on the side streets around it. No problem.

    I'll be wearing knee high obnoxious yellow socks that say "beer". That'll be the easiest way to find me if anyone wants to say "hey".

    Anyone know if institutionalized is going into bombers?

    Can't make the party but would love to swing by tomorrow and grab a bottle if so.

    Yeah, so...it's cold out...

    Beer socks have vetoed. Look for a red, yellow, and black lei.

    Prost!

    Hah OK OK. I actually thought I saw a guy paying cash when I drove by, wondering if they have tickets left over

    I am certainly going to make their next party a priority- had a great time. $20 in tickets (plus a few won from the carnie games) was more than enough for 3 full fills of Oktoberfest, a brat and a pretzel and another $20 covered tips for the staff. I shouldn't have been surprised based on how good the food at the brewpub is, but the brats, pretzels and potato salad were all fantastic. Here's hoping they do some more events over the holidays.

    THe food was amazing and the Oktoberfest was great. Seriously. I never really think of that style as something that blows me away. But it did. Great!

    Had institutionalized and despite the low scores on here i thought it was also great. I wish that came in bombers or cans. Id buy that up. Cant wait for the barrel aged version of it to be released.

    My last one was Eugene. Before tonight i had never had any of their beers but now im glad i did. THese were all great. My girlfriend had Bottom Up (which was also fantastic) and ROsa which she liked but i thought was plain.


    Also, according to the guy running the sledgehammer game i was the second person all day to ring the bell on it. Im not sure if he is including the person that hit it before the doors opened or not. I was wearing the Blackhawks track jacket and ND Hat that kept "wooing" after i hit it lol


    All in all i had a great time and i def want to go to any other party they ever throw. They sold a 1/3 of the tickets to this compared to the opening party and this was perfect. Lots of friendly people but it wasnt crowded at all.

    Had a great time as well. They made me play the hammer game because I am tall haha. I was wearing an ISU hoodie and a knit hat.

    I also like the Barleywine a lot. Made a good decision and did not have a 2nd glass.

    revolution knows how to throw a party. great staff, great environment. this party almost seemed like a customer appreciation day. bunch of fun free games that you could win to score more beer? fuck yeah. some people said 35 bucks was too much but this paid for the mugs, the rental 'carny' games, ( i did tip) and it even covered me for some drinks, keychain and shirt. i will continue to go to their parties.
