pretty nice place .. had quite a few house brews, 2-3 of them were grade A fabulous! .. server was pretty good .. window to watch the brewing, which i did .. pizza was just ok, but spicy as shit, why serve a pizza so hot that you makes you not able to taste the beer?? who ever decided that is a plank .. . beer was good once i recovered .. go for the beer, not the food.

Nice atmosphere - seems they used their space inefficiently because despite being a very large space, itís hard to get a table on a friday or saturday. That being said, they have a very large island-shaped bar in the center with some very nice socialist propaganda artwork. Being a smaller brewpub that also changes styles often, sometimes they donít have much that I like on tap at the time. Service can be slow, again probably because of the inefficient layout, but is friendly. Menu is a bit limited but everything Iíve had has been good.

I liked this place and recommend going out of the way for it. It was fairly busy on an ordinary weeknight, yet we were still able to get a nice table and great service. Though not fancy, the bar is a lovely three sided affair, and several tables are lined up differently to get some privacy. People were hanging out outside. The ceiling had unusual beautiful tiling. Some great guest taps, which only enhance the 60ís environment of sharing. Their own brews were very good Good bottle selection. I understand the food is pretty good, and superior to the other bars.Music was pretty loud

Went here on a thursday night, the wait was 30 minutes. Place is average size, great decor, young hip crowd. Up and comming neighborhood. Service was both good and bad. Thier hosts suck! How do you have 4 tables open for about 10 minutes and cant figure out what to do? Really need to improve on that. The waiter on the other hand was great, he took really good care of us. The food was excellent, the burger was one of the best Iíve had, up there with Kumas, Twisted Spoke and Oídonovans. Pizza was above average, not as good as Piece of course but still good. The bacon fat popcorn was just alright. Beer: 12 or so house brews, which are available as 4oz samplers for $2.00 (majority of them) which is a big plus. Other gust taps and bottles. Great place overall.

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.

stopped by a few weeks after opening. came in on a saturday morning/afternoon just after their 11am open. place was packed by noon! tried only one beer, on cask and on tap (wasnt aware of the cask for the first round - should have been recommended by the bartender, the sole strike against them). split the charcuterie plate with my dad, it was pretty decent as those go (ive sampled them at many chicago and abroad eateries). service was super friendly despite being mobbed and food (as simple as ours was) was swift. no complaints. the fact that they are busy or crowded should not be held against the management or owners. lovely room that clearly alot of money went into.

Eh, i could easily live without it. Always come in with high expectations, and itís always mediocre at best. Iíd head to Goose any day over Revolution

A very welcome addition to the cityís brewpub scene. For too long, Goose Island has been the only game in town, save some irrelevant bit players that have come and gone (anyone remember Hopcats or Brewing Company #9? Youíll be forgiven if the answer is "no.") plus that goddamn chain place in River North that doesnít really count. Revolutionís beer is rock-solid, and I predict they will be in it for the long haul. The interior is tasteful and well-done despite having many hallmarks of a douchebag hangout (lots of wood paneling, exposed brick walls, etc.) The food is excellent -- itís a little pricey for pub fare but you get what you pay for in terms of quality. The vaguely Marxist schtik is kinda corny though, and I certainly hope itís done tongue-in-cheek lest nobody there had even considered the irony of charging 11 bucks for something called a "Workingman burger" or five to six bucks for a beer. And speaking of beer, as of now they only have 5 of their own online, but it looks like they have room for another 7 or 8 more. Guest beers are also available.

First stop on my beer trip through Chicago. Made the mistake of coming on a friday night, I probably would have liked it more during the afternoon. Extremely crowed, and we were lucky to find a seat at the bar. I really like the tap handles and other fist wood carvings throughout. The beer was average from the 6 I sampled, and the food was decent. Like I said, I would have been much happier "beer geeking-out" in the afternoon without such an obnoxious crowd. If Iím ever in the area, I will give it anther try.

We visited on a weekday afternoon. This place is pretty cool on the inside. A good mix of art and lots of wood on the bar. Several of the beers on the advertised beer list were not on tap, and some of the premium beers were not available in the sampler. Didnít try the food, but it looked pretty good. Service was decent, but the servers didnít seem very social. The beers I tried were pretty good. Iíd go back to try some new beers, but the place is not exactly my style. I prefer capitalism.
