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.

This is one of the better breweries in Chicago. Their beers are pretty good and they usually have a good guest beer selection on draft as well. The Anti-Hero IPA is good, the Double Fist DIPA is better and in January, the Triple Fist TIPA is amazing! They brew a good variety of beers and are always releasing new ones on a weekly basis. Their food is very good and all made in house. Revolution is a great brewery to go frequently since they always have good food specials and their menu is rather large. This a great place for vegetarians as well!

This place just opened not that long ago so itís been pretty nuts. I waited a while before my first visit and finally went on a Sunday afternoon. Even at that time we had to wait 15-20min to get a table. Not as bad as the weekends when you might be waiting for a few hours. Itís definitely worth the wait, though. Large open space with great minimal decor, mostly crafted out of wine barrels. Decently sized food and beer menu. They had five of their own beers tapped, maybe another eight(?) guest taps and a medium sized bottle menu. Both the food and the beer was great but a bit pricey. We sampled all of their beers at $2 a tasting glass then moved onto a guest beer. Two of us had sandwiches (chicken, pulled pork, sides of creamy mashed potatoes and blue cheese potatoes) and the other tried one of the pizzas. We also has the bacon fat popcorn (a must for bacon lovers). I would definitely go again...hopefully the crowds die down a bit and the kegs remain full.

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 cool 2 floor establishment, very nice, warm, woody, with 2 large bars on each floor. The beers tasted were good but the food was stellar (and not too expensive). Had the Crispy Pork Belly sandwich with egg, served with fries, and it was superb. Nice selection of sandwiches,pizza and desserts. If in town, I shall be back.

Nice place, but it was packed. Surprising number of good beers - all their own - on tap. Most things were good to very good. Very worth the trip, and a wait in line to get in.

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.

Visited 7/26/2010 with masterski, shortly after Kumaís Corner.
It was nice to walk a mile after eating about 5 lbs of food at Kumaís. 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 thatís 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 wasnít much ambiance but she has a point.
Didnít eat. Would go back for some more ticks.

inside has combo of nice old brick, dark wood, and a shiny steel look over by the kitchen. clean lookin. was crowded on a saturday night- wait 30 minutes for a table for 5. no big deal, as there was a decent amount of space to hang out with a beer in hand while we waited. tight food menu. tough to make a decision as the fresh whole food combos all looked quite appetizing. had the forest burger, which i was quite happy with. will come back.
