2012_4_27_revbrew.jpg Tickets to tour Revolution Brewing's new Kedzie Street production facility go on sale on their website at noon. The brewery released more details about the beers being poured, the food trucks participating and the musical acts, in case any of you were on the fence about attending.

Let's get the major detail out of the way first: the beers. Revolution will have 28 beers throughout the brewhouse and their new tap room. Twelve of those are barrel aged selections. Peep, peeps.

Baracus Imperial Stout
Black Power Oatmeal Stout

Straight Jacket (Jack Daniels Barrel Aged Institutionalized)
The Marquis (Cabernet Barrel Aged Trippel)
Very Mad Cow (barrel Aged Milk Stout)

Note: the beer isn't part of the $15 admission and pours will cost $4; some beers will come in pints and others—the high gravity beers—will come in more appropriate servings. Participating food trucks include The Slide Ride, Haute Sausage, Cupcakes for Courage, Brown Bag Lunch, and The Tamale Spaceship.

As for the musical acts, Revolution has put together a bill that rivals the music at Dark Lord Day. Heavy Times and Apteka are on the bill, while the evening kicks off with "a surprise special guest performance from an incredible band." (Let the speculation begin.) DJ Huggies Supreme will close out the evening with a dance set starting at 8:30 p.m.

Here is the link to buy tickets. Once again, they go on sale at noon.
