Revolution Brewing

Logan Square, Chicago, IL

Revolution Brewing, a gastropub in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, showcases the process of crafting beer and fresh food from local sources with views into the brewery and kitchen.

The conversion of a 100 year old printing factory included reopening the storefront to light and views from the street, restoring the original tin ceiling and maple floors, recycling timber beams for bench seating, creating woven wood wall surfaces and light fixtures from deconstructed bourbon barrels used in the process of aging beer, and fabricating a chandelier from 99 blown beer bottles.

Our client takes great pride in the art of craft brewing, and he felt strongly that the process and elements involved in it were expressed throughout the project. The design and fabrication process was collaborative, and he implemented much of the design himself, including the bourbon barrel walls and light fixtures. Cheryl and Ravi of Wrap fabricated the beer bottle chandelier by heating and blowing recycled bottles.

Revolution opened to great acclaim and their success led to the addition of a second floor event space, fully equipped with a commercial kitchen and  2nd bar to host public and private events.
