Large oval central bar with tables around the periphery, kitchen and brewery towards the back. High ceilings. Very loud at times which seems to be the standard for many brewpubs. Crowd eclectic but tending toward the twenty-somethings. Nice selection of beers including lighter and more traditional styles as well as higher ABV and barrel-aged. Service quick and friendly. I had the Reuben with fries that was very good. Not cheap and they donít give you much of the barrel-aged for what you pay but value is probably on a par with other brewpubs in Chicago.

Overpriced and every beer had something wrong with it: diacetyl, fusel overload, etc. Aside from that food was good, they have a ton of guest beers, and the atmosphere is nice.

Went there on a Saturday evening. Noisy and crowded. Food was mediocre at best and pricey. Beer selection was average. Not awful, but nowhere near as good as it should be. Wonít be going back.

Walk in and saw a large rectangular, island bar in the middle with plenty of seating throughout. So I walked to the bar sat down, looked to the back and saw all the brewing equipment through a window. Has a nice clean, open feel.
So I look at the list of their beers on tap and see 8-10 which appears to be common for them. They also had a nice bottle list, but I didnít seriously peruse this since I knew I wanted one of their beers.
The bartender was knowledgeable about both beer in general and their beers specifically. Answered a couple of questions others had and was interesting just to talk to about beer. Obviously got proper glassware. The rest of the staff seemed helpful and enjoyable.
The milk stout I ended up getting was pretty good. A touch on the cold side when it was served, but not as bad as many bars, and it warmed to my preferred serving temp in a minute or two of me holding it. Other customers seemed to be enjoying their beer and the other beers looked good so quality shouldnít be a problem. Food also looked good, but I didnít try any. Pints were $5-6.
Seemed like a really nice brewpub. Pretty good beer, good service. I would have liked the price down a little, but it is pretty reasonable for everything. Worth a visit to have a tasty beer.

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.

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.

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!

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.
