Loved the two Revolution-made beers we ordered. We were equally impressed with our wood-fired pizza with sausage, pepperoni and bacon. It was one of the best pizzas we've had in a long time. Service was friendly and quick; we had our pizza less than 15 minutes from the time we ordered it. Great atmosphere, but it's noisy. Fortunately, we expected... More

Arrived 9:40 found seat at crowded bar. Ignored for 15 mins, given beer menu which featured house made beers ranging from weak ales for the masses to several hoppy and bigger beers. Also a large yet uninspiring and overpriced bottle offering of other beers. Found all three house beers-bigger ones- just fair. Ordered dick confit salad which was good not... More

To keep it short and sweet. A great spot for anyone that likes beer. All choices, and I tried quite a few, were exceptionally good. The place is busy and you may have to wait for a table. Food was okay, however nothing to write home about. Again, you come here for the beer and the atmosphere.

I have been to revolution many times with different people and have never been disappointed. Great local ingredients and hearty dishes. The pretzel is not to be missed. I also recommend the workingman burger, roasted chicken, and the fish and chip's. Also great for brunch.

Did a search for "breweries near O'Hare (not really that close)" and found this fun establishment. Busy place at lunchtime two days after Christmas. Bar was a little understaffed but the were working hard and took enough time with each customer to make sure we understood the beer choices. Enjoyed the beers. Recommend doing a flight to choose a few... More

We stopped in mid afternoon before checking out the Wicker park neighborhood. the brewery is located right near the L so it is very easy to get to. the atmosphere was perfect for a small brew pub. The beer was excellent and the selection was great. We tried eight different beers while we were there and each one was amazing,... More

I am somewhat of a beer geek and thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Revolution. The Congressional Approval wheat wine and Bean Gene bourbon barrel aged coffee stout are exceptional beers. The food at Revolution is fantastic as well, as I devoured the Hombre burger topped with roasted peppers and toasted tortilla strips. Amazing. It was all delivered with top-notch service... More

I've had many beers in my time and Revolution Brewing makes some of the best I've tasted. The service was excellent (sat at the bar) and the place was very clean and well decorated. Not too loud, though I was there on a Thursday afternoon. As for food, I just had the calamari but it was excellent. If you like... More

Great visit, great brews and food. Not standard pub fare but chef inspired dishes with flavor. We split a chicken Pesto sandwhich and it was fantastic. Anything that came from the kitchen looked very appealing. They also have a full bar and their own beers as well as other brews. There is the restaurant and pub, then they have a... More
