Third stop on a recent trip to Chicago with my girlfriend.
VIBE: the place was packed when we came on a Saturday night. Obviously a popular spot. Had to wait for our table so we grabbed some drinks and stood by the bar for about 15 minutes. Cool atmosphere and modern decor with multiple dining areas surrounding a gargantuan, brightly-lit bar.
SERVICE: the bartender was quick to fetch our orders and the waitress was very efficient at getting our food, beer, and wine to the table. They werenít the most personable servers (since they were so freakiní busy), but they certainly took care of our needs.
SELECTION: 8 house beers, all different styles, 2 casks, and La Trappe Isidíor, Dark Horse Sapient Trip, Victory Summer Love, and Anderson Valley Boontlinger Weiss for guest draughts. Didnít notice any bottles. I ordered the Anti-Hero IPA and Coup díEtat Saison, both of which impressed me. The lady was relieved to find a pinot grigio of her liking.
FOOD: way better than we expected. I went for the Blackened Pork Belly and Clear Lakes Rainbow Trout; my girl had the Soft Pretzel and Spring Vegetable salad. All of the fare was delicious and carefully presented. In fact, it seemed like a few of the patrons were here just for the cuisine.
OVERALL: Revolution is a well rounded brewpub that delivers on all fronts. Although the guest taps didnít blow me away (in comparison to Haymarket, for instance), the house brews were flavourful and satisfying, and the food was superb. A great spot for dinner and drinks.

A neat brewpub in Chicago. It wasnít too crowded when I stopped by after lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. They had on maybe 8 house taps and then a few guest taps as well. The house beers I tried were quite good, especially the Eugene porter and The Whip IPA. I would have liked to try even more if not for time constraints. It seems they always have some interesting beers on and rotate taps frequently. I didnít order any food, but what I saw being ordered looked tasty. Top-notch beers, chill and relaxed atmosphere, a great stop.

Beer to Rev a bunch of times. The selection here is usually good and I enjoy most of their regular lineup, which really helps. Their barrel aged stuff has been mostly "hit" for me. The food is good but doesnít blow me away. Itís usually packed, which is a good thing, but Iíve really never waited too long for a spot at the bar or a table/booth. Probably my favorite brewpub in Chicago.

A big fan of this Chicago brewpub as well. Food is very solid and so is the beer. Add in always interesting guest taps and good service there isnít too much to complain about here. Never seems to get too loud and service has always been solid for me. It tends to be a bit pricey but another great Chicago brewpub.

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 othersí plates looked very good.

Upscale/Trendy brewpub with an extensive menu ranging from simple bar food up to complicated borderline fine dining dishes. The food is great, however nothing blew me away. Prices are very reasonable for their food.
The beer is great. Many of their IPAís were excellent and better than most in the region.
Service was excellent.
Currently, this should be a priority stop for those visiting Chicago in my opinion.

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!

Visited for lunch on a Thursday. Bigger space with a large U shaped bar with tables all around. Seemed new and well worn at the same time, comfortable space. The place was almost entirely dead when I arrived. Picked up some as lunch progressed. Service was nice and knowledgeable. 11 of their own beers, nice selection of guest taps. They do 5 oz samples of all their beers in mini-nonic pint glasses, which I appreciated. I had the Italian Sausage pizza which was a little sloppy, though the sausage and crust were great. Nice place, would hit it a bunch if I lived nearby.

This place us usually jam packed. Very cool atmosphere, nice tables, very new look. At the back is big glass plane where you can see the brewery.
They had 6 of their own brews, 6 or 7 guest taps and probably 30-40 bottles. Their own brews were all pretty good, I got a tasting flight a very good deal. The guest taps were ok, guest bottles were so-so. Decent amount of bottles but a lot of semi macroís that Iím not a huge fan of, but some trappists too so pretty decent.
The service was really good, server was nice, and sorta knowledgeable. He knew a lot about there beer but Iíd venture to say not a ton about beer in general as he commented he thought our table of 3 BAís were in the beer industry based on tableside conversation.
The food was the downside of the place. Bar food galore. A really nice bacon fat popcorn appetizer but everything else was so-so.
Great atmosshere for a local brew pub. There brews were really good and I will be going back soon.
