Good view of the small brewing are from any seat in the house, and the brewer was hard at work. They serve guest beers in addition to their own stuff, a big plus in my book. 5 ounce samplers are only available for the house beers, $2 each, but the bartender was generous with samples of the other brews. Food was very good, beers were top notch. Worth a look for sure.

Visited 7/26/2010 with masterski, shortly after Kuma’s Corner.

It was nice to walk a mile after eating about 5 lbs of food at Kuma’s. The place was fairly empty (middle of the day on a week day). There is a nice bar with lots of room and plenty of tables around.

Tried the sampler which consisted of 7 house beers. I didnt realize at the time but I was told later that the mild was supposed to be a big hit. I didnt think much of it but I did like the IPA. Not quite sure what to make of the Rosie.

The service was kind of non existent but that’s not all bad, as I got my sampler. The lady that sat next to us gave us crap for having out cell phones out. She then proceded to lecture us on how we should be here to enjoy the ambiance and unwind. I was there to enjoy the beer, and since the place was empty there wasn’t much ambiance but she has a point.

Didn’t eat. Would go back for some more ticks.

modern interior, the oak barrel wall paneling is clever and works well with the design of the place. roughly a dozen different Revolution taps and small samples available of each. beer quality ranged from mediocre to good.

After a day full of travel delays, I was incredibly glad to finally make it here (where I was supposed to be about 4 hours prior to when I actually arrived). I met TheAlum here and I of course tried all the beers I hadn’t had before (just a couple of the bottled/canned offerings).

On the whole, the place is nice. Nice wooden bar with seating on all sides of the taps, plenty of bar seating and tables around as well. Service was pretty good, even though it was crowded.

The beer quality was good. A couple winners (liked the Dos Osos and Schwarzbier a lot), but a few duds as well. And they have a lot of beers, something like 15 or 16 house taps. Good bottle list as well.

Definitely worth a stop, particularly since it’s just a minute or two walk from the train.

Arrived just after opening on the morning of Sunday 4th November at around 10.10 am. By 10.30 ish a line had formed and around 25 or so folks were waiting inside by the time we left at 11.20! Single room bar split over a couple of levels, bar in the middle, kitchen at the rear. Wooden floor and tables/chairs, stools at the bar also. Their own beers only were available on tap a dozen or so on this visit with a bottle list from other brewers coming in at around 60 to 70. Service was pretty decent and whenever our glasses ran low our server visited. Food was excellent, I had the pancetta biscuits and gravy - top draw!

A really nice brewpub in Chicago, rather large and well laid out. The bar is double sided with plenty of seating. There were roughly 9 house beers alongside some really nice micros. The servers were great. I did not order food, though what I saw on others’ plates looked very good.

(Visited 10/2010 and again 11/2012): Revolution brewpub is located on N Milwaukee in the Logan Square area of Chicago, north of downtown. Metered street parking is the best option.

Inside the bar is immediately past the host stand/merch and is long and oval shaped. Table seating occupies the rest of the space. The brewery is visible behind glass in the rear. Striking lineup of uniform tap handles behind the bar (all painted differently).

As for the beers, they carry around 15 at any given time and sampler trays are available. On my more recent visit they had the staples plus Fistmas, Working Woman, Hugene, Weegene, Chicaco Common and others. The beers are solid for the most part.

Service has been consistent on my visits, including my last visit where we sat at the bar. The bartender was well-versed in their lineup and was friendly.

We did not have food on our last visit, but I remember my previous meal being good, especially the bacon popcorn appetizer.

All in all this place is near the top of the list as far as Chicago brewpubs to visit for me.

May 2010. Bottom line up front: I love this place. It was freaking packed the Friday night we went, but they still managed to find a place for us to chill and enjoy some stellar beers and delicious food. The service as A+ and the groove was chill. The place has a killer atmosphere with the most amazing bar I’ve seen in a long time. New favorite and top-2 destination in Chicago for me. Brewery #511.

Definitely one of the coolest brewpubs I’ve ever visited. Love the power to the p taphandles. The vibe is hipster but the wait staff was friendly and engaging. You can tell from the tap list, these guys make interesting beer. Would recommend to anyone.

Fun, open air all wood interior with large round table wooden bar. Custom fist caryatid columns on the bar. Excellent gastropub level food. Pork belly and egg sandwich was excellent, pesto chicken sandwich was loved by the fiance. The fries here were dope. Service was quick, friendly, was able to keep sample pours organized unlike many bartenders I encounter. Atmosphere was relaxed. Fun place. Beers were above average but nothing was outstanding. Number of house beers on tap was large, enough to keep anyone busy.
