Editorial Review of Revolution Brewing

Revolution Brewing may not be summoning the most productive members to its cause - outside of the logo, the only raised fists here are of folks trying to get the bartender's attention - but with beer made on site accompanied by good, uncomplicated food, it's hard to see the Logan Square brewery not effecting positive change.

Beer lovers will be the first to join Revolution's ranks. Handlebar Bar and Grill founder Josh Deth has teamed up with his former Goose Island co-worker Jim Cibak to make a half dozen (and growing) beers that are available by the pint or sample sized, to-go in a growler, and (eventually) in retail stores. Their heavily hopped brews are supplemented by another seven unusual craft beers by draft, as well as several dozen by the bottle.

As much as Revolution's a beer destination, the food may be a brighter spot. The menu consists of higher-end pub grub, dishes that can stand on their own but which do better paired with beer. There are five stomach-expanding entrees, like beef stew and pork chops, but the bulk of the mains are thoughtfully designed sandwiches and burgers (e.g. burger with spinach, beets, horseradish cream and an egg) and 10 pizzas from a wood-fired oven. Salads and appetizers (bacon fat popcorn, anyone?) are also available.

The space is expansive, with a fair amount of seating on either side of the large, four-sided bar that dominates the center of the modern, yet comfortable, wood-heavy room. The front has perks - a small seating area by a fireplace, but so does the back, with a large window providing a view into the kitchen and brewing area. It fits a lot of people, so even though the well-chosen music isn't loud, your fellow patrons can be. But who's to complain? Revolutions need the masses.

Average cost: $10-$20
