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).

We stumbled upon this place as we were leaving downtown bound for Superdawg on our way home to LaCrosse. Lucky us! Parked right in front where they had the widows open. Inside we sat at the bar and had a very pleasant, chatty young lady bartender. Interiour is tastfully done in a beer pub theme: room dividers made from barrel staves and chandeliers from the barrel bands. Nice, slightly worn maple floors. Old fashion stamped zinc ceiling. Nice mahoganey bar and carved back bar. Spiral ducts. All in great shape; it was opened less than a year ago. Saw a lot of people eating with gusto, so it seems food must be good. Other customers were friendly too. Their beers which we tried were pretty good except the gold which was boring. Iíll proly go back someday. And Iíll definitely recommend it to folks.

We stopped in for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. This place has a very cool look to it when you walk in. Wraparound bad in the center with plenty of seating. There are booths on a second tier that allow you to overlook the bar. This is where we chose to sit.
Approximately 8 beers were available on taop from there brew pub and a couple of guest taps as well. They also had a nice selection of bottles available. I was able to enjoy their IPA and Pale Ale.
Food was good. Decent selection was available. I had a pulled pork sandwich and my wife had one of their personal pizzas.
Not a bad place. Glad we visited.

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.

Went here the day before DLD 2010. Didnít know what to expect from this place, but I was impressed!
This is a big-ass place, expansive with high ceilings and some second floor seating areas that overlook the main central area where the bar is. As big and new as it is, they pack the place. The scene is great - a fairly young crowd, without too many notebook-packing tickers (except me) or Jersey shore club types (again, except me).
They had seven of their beers on tap when I went, and all were good to great. I consider myself to rate a little tougher than the average reviewer, and I gave their beers scores from B to A. They really nail the more "sessionable" styles, as their golden ale and dark mild were phenomenal for the styles. There are also almost 100 (as a guess) guest bottles as well as several guest taps.
The food is excellent. I had a burger, which was awesome, and shared some mussels and some bacon popcorn. Prices are about what youíd expect for the area and the quality. Service staff was friendly from my experience.
Great place overall! Iíll definitely try to come back if Iím in Chicago again.

Stopped in with my wife on Saturday around 5:30 and it was almost packed but did not have to wait for table which was a present surprise. 8 house brews were all pretty solid. 7 or so guest taps and 5 different casks. Awesome selection of brews when you think about it. For food we had the Bacon Fat Popcorn which was great, the 4 pieces of Bruschetta which was different but solid, and the Margarita pizza which was average. Tab was only $54 which wasnít to bad for the city.
I really like the design of the building. Exposed brick, large front windows that open, huge 360 degree bar, open kitchen. My wife really like this place. Will be back again for sure.

This place has a nice vibe and you can see both the brewery and the kitchen from the bar, which is cool. The revolutionary theme is taken almost too far but is still pretty cool. Every time I have gone itís been packed but the bartenders are good enough that I never feel like I have to wait overlong for service. The food is good. Itís the brewpub default upscale pub fare. As far as the beer, Revolutionís ales are solid but not the best in the city by a stretch. They do seem to be getting a system down. First time I went they were all slightly overcarbed and the last time they had it right. They are still served to cold though (whatís new?). If nothing else, their guest taps are consistently good and actually could make for half a decent beer bar on their own. Overall, it has one quality that I really like in a beer bar which is I feel comfortable dropping in by myself and having a few pints while taking notes. Good times.

Typical larger brewpub ambiance. Good selection of beers covering a smart variety of styles. Guest taps were wisely chosen as well. It was hoppin but not too slammed and we got attentive service. The bacon fat popcorn looks amazing but I was so full I couldnít think about eating solids. The beer I tried was solid. Recommended.

So awesome that I go married here :) Itís nice to add another brewpub to Chicago. I really dig how hard they are trying, bringing in a ton of guest taps that are constantly changing. They also try to keep their beers on, but they really need more capacity to do it right. Which I am assuming will happen. The food is okay for now, I look forward to spring and hopefully an evolving and changing menu. Their house beers are pretty quality for just opening and I noticed improvement between batches of a few as well. Definitely a good place to go and will only get better.
