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.

Upscale/Trendy brewpub with an extensive menu ranging from simple bar food up to complicated borderline fine dining dishes. The food is great, however nothing blew me away. Prices are very reasonable for their food. The beer is great. Many of their IPAís were excellent and better than most in the region. Service was excellent. Currently, this should be a priority stop for those visiting Chicago in my opinion.

Revolution has quickly become my favorite brewpub. They excel at flavorful, balanced beers and frequently have new offerings. The guest tap list is always changing and the food is fantastic as well. Sure, its crowded as Hell right now, but that should only serve as a reminder of how fantastic this place is. I look forward to the opening of their second level and production brewery. Highly recommended!

Visited for lunch on a Thursday. Bigger space with a large U shaped bar with tables all around. Seemed new and well worn at the same time, comfortable space. The place was almost entirely dead when I arrived. Picked up some as lunch progressed. Service was nice and knowledgeable. 11 of their own beers, nice selection of guest taps. They do 5 oz samples of all their beers in mini-nonic pint glasses, which I appreciated. I had the Italian Sausage pizza which was a little sloppy, though the sausage and crust were great. Nice place, would hit it a bunch if I lived nearby.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This place us usually jam packed. Very cool atmosphere, nice tables, very new look. At the back is big glass plane where you can see the brewery. They had 6 of their own brews, 6 or 7 guest taps and probably 30-40 bottles. Their own brews were all pretty good, I got a tasting flight a very good deal. The guest taps were ok, guest bottles were so-so. Decent amount of bottles but a lot of semi macroís that Iím not a huge fan of, but some trappists too so pretty decent. The service was really good, server was nice, and sorta knowledgeable. He knew a lot about there beer but Iíd venture to say not a ton about beer in general as he commented he thought our table of 3 BAís were in the beer industry based on tableside conversation. The food was the downside of the place. Bar food galore. A really nice bacon fat popcorn appetizer but everything else was so-so. Great atmosshere for a local brew pub. There brews were really good and I will be going back soon.

Great beers on tap including growlers. Food was excellent and the staff was in the know. I enjoy the bar over tables as they can become a bit crowded.

Revolution has been hit-and-miss for me on the beer scene. Iíve been five or six times now. About every other beer I get here is excellent. The other half, not so much. The food, however, has consistently been top notch. Burgers that rival the best in Chicago. Service, too, has been spotty. Seems like when Iím at a table service is good, but when at the bar I go unnoticed.
