On a Saturday night around Midnight we walked into Atlas during a bar / brewery hopping trip in Chicago. The atmosphere had a 70s vibe with classic looking beer light box signs and mosaic glass behind the counter along with the music playing. The brewing setup was visible through a glass window in the back of the first big room with several 55 gallon oak barrels in the area.

The bar wasn't very busy at that time so we were able to get a menu and drinks quickly with a nice, informative bartender. There were about 10 beers on the menu ranging from a rye-IPA to a 3% sour, to a belgian quad and a brandy barrel aged Beire de Guarde. No food as far as I could tell - but wasn't looking for any.

I personally tried the Sauternes Barrel-Aged T-Rex Hugs, Rookery Rye and a sample of the Monkey Shriek Hibiscus Sour. The Rye IPA was good with a prominent rye flavor and a nice citrus hop aroma and taste but it was a little one demensional. The T-Rex arms was not my thing.. not bad just more harshness from the barrel then I care for. The Sour I enjoyed.

Overall I t was a good stop, but I don't thik I'd go out of my way to visit Atlas again. I hope they refine their recipes and make me change my mind.

Last night was my third or 4th night here since they opened... after my first two times I really didn't go out of my way to grab a beer here (it's been awhile since my last visit)... what they had on tap just never really wow'd me. This time was different, and I'll be looking forward to my next trip. They had an american sour on tap that was phenomenal, brewed with hibiscus and lime peel (probably the second sour I've ever had in a brew pub that I really enjoyed). The milk stout aged in rye koval barrels was quite good, and my friends seemed to enjoy their Rye-PA. There were were about 6 other choices on tap as well.

Food menu was mostly: Pizza, Sliders and Tacos... but all with a fancy twist. I enjoyed my beef tacos, but my friend was served a nearly raw lamb slider -so I can't really go any higher than a 3 for that. My previous visits I remember liking the pizza.

Service was ok. It was friday night, they were busy, but not THAT busy... I found myself waiting awhile to be asked for another beer while I've got an empty glass in front of me. And even then it was me grabbing my waiter's attention.

Overall: I'd go back now that they seemed to have stepped up their game in the brew house... I might avoid a weekend, and I'd certainly avoid the lamb sliders.

Rating could be better, will revisit it again in the future; when we were there in October, I pulled up the beer menu on my IPAD at the table, and it showed what was " on tap". Out of 6 of the additional tapped beers , only one was available. Waitress explanation " oh, It isn't updated regularly". Me: " oh, I guess that is really good for out-of-town ers". What a joke.
