Raise your fist to Revolution, an industrial-chic brewpub that fills glasses with heady beers such as the Eugene porter and Anti-Hero IPA. The brewmaster here led the way for Chicago's huge craft beer scene, and his suds are top-notch. Haute pub grub includes a pork belly and egg sandwich and bacon-fat popcorn with fried sage.
Revolution also has a taproom nearby at 3340 N Kedzie Ave. Open Wednesday through Sunday, it's usually not as crowded as the brewpub, and offers a relaxed atmosphere for hop fiends to knock back pints. Free brewery tours are an added bonus. There is always one at 6pm (except Sunday); check the schedule for other times.
