Very busy when we were here (Saturday night), but the service was quick. Good value, as you can do quite cheap 5 ounce samples (poured properly with head despite the small size). Revolution has a lengthy and quality selection of their own beers. Worth checking out in Chicago.

Went not long after it opened, and went again recently. I love Revolution. The food is great bar food (fish and chips are done really well). The beers all fantastic. Really nice indoor area. We tend to arrive around 5 and have parked twice right in front. Worth a trip.

My favorite place in Chicago. Can get crowded, but this has gotten better since they completed the upstairs. Nice selection of beer, including usually 8+ of their own drafts. Great food.

Revolution has quickly become my favorite brewpub. They excel at flavorful, balanced beers and frequently have new offerings. The guest tap list is always changing and the food is fantastic as well. Sure, its crowded as Hell right now, but that should only serve as a reminder of how fantastic this place is. I look forward to the opening of their second level and production brewery. Highly recommended!

Revolution Brewpub is an excellent experience. The bar and eating areas on the first floor are layed out perfectly. Their upstairs area is very nice as well. The staff is always friendly, and their food and beer is some of the best Iíve ever had at a pub. One of my top three favorites in Chicago!

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 Iíve seen in a long time. New favorite and top-2 destination in Chicago for me. Brewery #511.

Walk in and saw a large rectangular, island bar in the middle with plenty of seating throughout. So I walked to the bar sat down, looked to the back and saw all the brewing equipment through a window. Has a nice clean, open feel.
So I look at the list of their beers on tap and see 8-10 which appears to be common for them. They also had a nice bottle list, but I didnít seriously peruse this since I knew I wanted one of their beers.
The bartender was knowledgeable about both beer in general and their beers specifically. Answered a couple of questions others had and was interesting just to talk to about beer. Obviously got proper glassware. The rest of the staff seemed helpful and enjoyable.
The milk stout I ended up getting was pretty good. A touch on the cold side when it was served, but not as bad as many bars, and it warmed to my preferred serving temp in a minute or two of me holding it. Other customers seemed to be enjoying their beer and the other beers looked good so quality shouldnít be a problem. Food also looked good, but I didnít try any. Pints were $5-6.
Seemed like a really nice brewpub. Pretty good beer, good service. I would have liked the price down a little, but it is pretty reasonable for everything. Worth a visit to have a tasty beer.

Modern rustic brewpub restaurant in Logan Park. I went on a Saturday, and it was packed with no empty seats at the bar. We found some seats near the lounge cubby, and our waitress was friendly and attentive. I enjoyed all of their house beers, and they have some nice rotating guest taps as well. I did not try the food, but it looks great. I like this place quite a bit and I will definitely be coming back. My only complaint would be that itís very loud compared to my usual spot (Goose Island Clybourne).

Revolution is just one of those brewpubs that you know is doing it right. From the decor, to the menu, to the creative and well-done beers, these guys are going to be successful for years to come if they stick with it. The upper levels to the right of the bar are sided in staves from old wine barrels, and the bar itself has pillars of carved wood fists for support in the back. Little things like a chandelier made out of blown beer bottles also stand out as nice touches. A fireplace in the corner with bench seating around it is a nice setting for a pint and some conversation white you wait for a table or donít. the house beers were generally all good, though they brew their pale ales and IPAs with an english strain that leaves more diacetyl than I like. I guess Iím still used to the clean yeasts that all the west coast brewpubs use. They do some interesting barrel-aging as well. Beyond the house beers, they always have a good selection of guest taps and an extensive bottle selection. The food is excellent and there are several good veg options like their delicious tempeh reuben. Itís nice to see a brewpub putting out the effort to accommodate more eaters and embrace more environmentally friendly cuisine. This was definitely my favorite brewpub in Chicago.
