In this blog, we are going to get into one of many craft breweries, which is Revolution Brewing Company and the beer is called Anti Hero India Pale Ale. Revolution Brewing Company was founded in 2010 in the Logan Square area in Chicago as a brewpub. They brew several different styles and took several employees when they opened from the Goose Island Brewery before they were brought by Budweiser. In 2012, they opened their production brewery to start the packaging and kegging their beers. This brewery is one of the best ones in the Chicagoland area and of course is the best one of the new breweries in Chicago. This is totally my thought. Let us get into this beer.
Anti Hero IPA is a new line of bottles, cans and draft that is coming from this new brewery. Revolution Brewing Anti Hero has a copper color without a head to the beer. It has an earthy to slight citrus smell to it. As for the taste of the beer, it has a sweet to heavy carbonation to the beer with a citrus to slight grapefruit to it. It is a drinkable beer for the style with a ABV 6.5%.
Here is a description from their website (www.revbrew.com):
An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain’t in this for your revolution, and I’m not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

In closing, it took me several times drinking this beer to really start to like it. That is not a bad thing to the brewery nor the beer. This beer has a nice balance from the hops to the malty backbone. It has a the nice West Coast IPA feel but from a Midwest Brewery. At least, I know I could go direction to the brewery and get it fresh asides guessing the code dates on any West Coast Breweries beers. I had this beer on draft at the Blue Bar and I know I will be enjoying this beer on many football Sundays. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
