After an extremely stressful 10-day stretch, I was finally done with all of the things that I needed to do with law review, work, and class. I went to get some pants hemmed and then I was hungry. After sifting through a massive amount of places that I wanted to eat, I finally settled on Revolution Brewing. Revolution Brewing is located at 2323 N. Milwaukee and its website is http://www.revbrew.com/.
I was mainly looking forward to their homemade beers, but I had also heard that they had some pretty good food. We started with the bacon fat popcorn, as it sounded ridiculously good. I mean popcorn, bacon fat, bacon, and parmesan cheese? How could that not be amazing? Even though I had really high expectations for it (and at only $4), it blew the doors off of anything I could have imagined. The bacon was strongly applewood smoked. The bacon alone with the cheese would have been a fantastic appetizer, but the popcorn took it to a whole other level. It was definitely the best $4 dish I have ever had. I wouldn't even complain if they doubled the price (though I hope they don't).
We ended with a bourbon soaked cherry cake. Michelle had really high expectations, and she did not particularly like it. I, on the other hand, was not really that excited about it, and I thought it was very nice. The cherries were very tart and the cake had a mellow bourbon taste that contrasted with the cherries. I would definitely get it again.
