Chicago's Atlas Brewing Expands, Takes Over Long-Vacant Jay's Chip Factory

LINCOLN PARK — Goose Island is no longer the only Lincoln Park craft brewery whose products you can find at Chicago's liquor stores.

Atlas Brewing Co., the Lincoln Avenue-based brewpub, just launched a line of cans that is making its way to liquor stores around Chicago.

The young brewing company fired up its operations at a new South Side facility located inside the former Jay's Potato Chip factory at 99th and Cottage Grove.

Atlas's beers had primarily only been available on tap at its Lincoln Park location, 2747 N. Lincoln Ave., until earlier this month.

"It's exciting. It's scary. It's an opportunity to really turn this thing into something that can be a long-term career," said Ben Saller, who runs the brewery and brewpub with his brother John.
