Party Earth Revolution Brewing Review

The Scene

Revolution Brewing in Chicago’s Logan Square is a very popular brewpub with tons of fresh beer & great food. Find out why it’s a Chicago fave with Party Earth.

With treats like bacon fat popcorn, cheddar ale soup, and a lengthy list of freshly brewed beers, Revolution Brewing does little to incite rebellion – and a whole lot to fill the belly.

The warehouse-turned-brewpub is easy to spot, both due to its size and the Communist Russia-era logo of a raised fist clutching a barley stalk that hangs over the entrance.

Thankfully, the spacious interior is far warmer than a Trotsky training ground, with iron light fixtures hung along the tin ceiling, walls covered in repurposed whiskey and wine casks, and lots of tall pub tables in sight of the big street-side windows.

A rotation of sixteen house brews are served at the center bar, along with a few other local crafts and a handful of cocktails, while an ambitious food menu doles out an assortment of hand-tossed pizzas, burgers, waffles, and pillow-sized soft pretzels.

There are a few TVs for those who want to watch the game, while anyone seeking alternative visual entertainment can always peruse the latest local art on display, or head to the back and watch the shiny fermentation tanks do their thing.

Crowd-phobics should avoid Revolution Brewing come Fridays, when a flood of hip locals, beer enthusiasts, and packs of celebratory friends collectively ensure hour waits for a meal.

The beer never takes that long, however, so no one seems prone to protest anytime soon.

Tip from Jonah:

Head in on Tuesdays after 5pm for a special four-course prix fixe menu, which includes beer pairings. It runs $45, or $30 without the beer, and changes every week, so you’ll never know what’s in store…except that it will be awesome.

  • Entertainment / Music
