[Dine-Out] Calgary: Beer Revolution

We were heading to pick up some groceries the other day right around dinner time. Realizing it was probably a bad idea to go food shopping on an empty stomach, we snuck into Beer Revolution to grab a quick meal. The concept of Beer Revolution is pretty neat, especially if you’re a beer drinker. It has twenty-four beers on tap that are changed regularly. Its website says that it changes several time a day (!). Its beer menus are displayed on “airplane terminal boards” (quote, our waitress) around the restaurant and are all real time. The atmosphere of the place is more of a bar than a restaurant. The night we went, the place was relatively sparse, but there were a couple of quite rowdy tables.

I ordered a salad even though Beer Revolution had $5 off pizzas that night, I know, blasphemy. The salad was actually surprisingly filling. It came with three round little grilled crab cakes topped with basil aioli:

The salad mix consisted of mixed greens, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, sun dried cranberries, and mango salsa. The dressing was a red wine vinaigrette, but I got that on the side, and never actually used it. I absolutely love fruit on salads, it really makes the meal light and refreshing. The salad also had a ton of chives in it, the chives made the salad really interesting because it added notes of spiciness without it being too heavy.

The bf got the Chicken Caesar Pizza:

The pizza is topped with grilled chicken, bacon, mozzarella, parmesan, caesar dressing, and its topped with fresh caesar salad. Beer Revolution’s pizzas are supposedly brick baked at 700 degrees and uses Italy’s best 00 flour. I have no comment because I didn’t try any of it, but the bf really liked it and finished off the whole pizza to himself!
