Logan Square’s Revolution Brewing isn’t simply one of Chicago’s growing number of breweries, it’s a modern beer hall. The bar’s multiple levels have spacious seating, whisky-barrel-paneled walls and ornamental ceiling tiles. Their menu has some standout items including the Workingman burger and the Tempeh Reuben (vegan). But it’s their craft brews that are the main attraction. Their seasonal specialty brews are a must, like the Rosa Hibiscus Ale (flowery and sweet) or Cross of Gold (mild hoppy flavor). It’s normally a packed house, but don’t fret, sit at the bar and try one of their draughts while waiting.
