The brewpub was a success immediately when it opened in Chicago and lines havenít died down in the slightest. Great wood and beautiful bar are the feature here with an upper room that is just as gorgeous. A solid taplist of all the usuals moves a bit quicker here and the staple cask offering is always a treat. Nice guest bottle list, solid food menu (Though admittedly, not one Iíd go solely for), and pretty good service. I prefer the Tap Room as the brewpub is essentially always busy and bustling. Nice place.

Really nice place, enjoyed the visit and got to catch up with some friends. Kind of trendy and decently crowded for a Monday evening. Very large and open space. Some of the beers were really good some were awful and most were really standard but spot on and well done. Didnít try the food but will on my next visit.

Visited on the way to the Furthur show. Itís a pleasant place in the mid-afternoon. Good staff--knew their stuff. A good selection of their beers on tap and a solid selection of other bottles. Food was good--several veggie items Iíd go back for: tempeh reuben, tofu barbeque.

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.

modern interior, the oak barrel wall paneling is clever and works well with the design of the place. roughly a dozen different Revolution taps and small samples available of each. beer quality ranged from mediocre to good.

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.
