Easy to find location with street parking. Went to the bar in the center of building with a rough wood interior and brewing equipment at the back. Got to sample all brews and a glass of water included. Good selection of brews that are average to above. Service is timely and attentive, with good knowledge of beers. Did not have food.

This has been one of my favorite places in chicago since they opened. Its in logan square and really fits the area well but is more than accessible for everyone. Generally its their beers on tap, but they always do a good job of having good "guest" taps as well. While some of the beer can be variable, their range of offerings is great and you are able to try out as much as you want with their sample pours. The food across the board is very good. Things that standout though are their workingmanís burger, mussels, pizzas, and their polenta fries. the bartenders are generally easy to get a beer from. It does get packed at nights, but that is just expected and they do a good job even when it is slammed. Itís the whole package that keeps me coming back and keeps me happy every time.

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.

Good brew pub, with a solid selection of both their brews and outside brews. The place is a bit hip and trendy, so on the weekend it can be quite busy. I love this place for lunch, and if your a fan of bacon and pop corn their bacon grease pop corn is canít miss.

Stopped for dinner with my wife on recent trip to Chicago. Selected because of good ratings. Did not disappoint. 16 Beers on tap (9 of own + 6 guest). Tried 6 of the 5 oz samplers. Good bargain at $2 a piece. Pablo Picasso and Antihero IPA were my favorites. My wife liked the Rosa and Bottom up Whit. Food was above average. Service was good. Just a hop and skip from downtown on the blue line. Was here on the early side of dinner, but plenty of people. If I lived in Chicago this would be a favorite destination. Very much recommended.

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.
