About Revolution Brewing and Founder Josh Deth:
Managing partner Josh Deth was a novice homebrewer when he caught a lucky break. In the summer of 1995, he landed a job cleaning kegs at the now-defunct Golden Prairie Brewing. Golden Prairie epitomized the shoestring startup brewery operation of the nascent era of craft beer. What it lacked in size (three barrel brewhouse) it made up for with the heart and soul of its owner, Ted Furman. As a beginner, Josh dutifully cleaned kegs and scrubbed tanks holding such innovative beers as Maple Stout, Honey Ginger and Buckwheat Ale, all perhaps just a bit ahead of their time.
A few years later, Josh dreamt up the idea for Revolution while working at Goose Island as a cellarman and brew pub brewer. After the first few tries at opening a brewery didn't work out, Josh opened Handlebar in 2003 with his wife Krista and a few friends. Always one to do more, he also worked as Executive Director of Logan Square Chamber of Commerce. He worked to promote local businesses and manage the Logan Square Farmers Market. While working at the Chamber, he found a cool, old building on Milwaukee Avenue with a nice tin ceiling. The brewery idea bubbled up again.
Revolution Brewing opened up in February 2010 after three years of raising funds, dealing with the zoning department, and construction. We added our 2nd floor Brewers' Lounge in July 2011. We are now opening a new production brewery and tap room in 2012.
