Beer & Branding: Revolution Brewing

AVONDALE, CHICAGO

Chicago's Revolution Brewing is no stranger to growth. And with all of that growth, new recipes, special releases and tap space comes the need for some well considered design. Their brand's image is one of lightheartedness, yet rebellion. Their brewery name and ethos alone hints strongly toward the 'stick-it-to-the-man' mentality. So when it came to building a brand around that ethos, Ian Law of Mighty Few design, had plenty of options to pull from, for the task at hand. We asked Ian what the approach was to tackling such a monumental design task.

Everyone has their go-to beer when nothing on that tap list really sticks out. For us, that's usually a beer from Revolution Brewing. Whether it's the always solid Eugene Porter, or the ultra consistent and tasty Anti-Hero IPA, it's a safe bet we're going to get something we like, every time. And if we want something outside the ordinary, Revolution has us covered there too. Their barrel-aged and small batch brews are on-par with anything else brewing in Chicago. In short, Revolution has been a long-time THR favorite.

There are a lot of archaic beer laws around the United States, and most of them do nothing good for the craft beer industry. The state of Wisconsin is no exception with their controversial "Tied House" laws (other states including Illinois have similar laws), enacted shortly after Prohibition ended. Originally intended to protect small brewers being forced out of bars by the big guys, the aging law now has the exact opposite effect. Earlier this year, word spread that Like Minds Brewing, one of the state's most promising new brewers, had been forced to find new digs in Chicago.
