Forbidden Root Beer Cocktail Tour at L&E

August 26, 2014

This summer, Good Beer Hunting and Forbidden Root are teaming up to bring you a Botanic Beer Cocktail Tour featuring some of GBH’s favorite beer-focused cocktail programs in Chicago.

The flavors of Forbidden Root’s botanic beers are entirely unique, and GBH thought they’d feature perfectly in a series of beer cocktails. At L&E we will be featuring a “ROOT BEER FLOAT FLIP” with Old Grand Dad 114, Cream, Egg, Demerara, & Forbidden Root

Stop in tomorrow to check it out…

What’s Happening!!

August 15, 2014

Save the date? Longman & Eagle is hosting its fourth installment of ‘What’s Happening!!’, an outdoor block and dance party featuring the drinks, food and music at the end of the month. The date is Sunday, August 31st, and the event runs from 1pm to 10pm.

As a ‘thank you’ to a neighboring community that has been so very supportive, the L&E has been hosting a free, outdoor block party on Schubert, at Kedzie, adjacent to the building for the last four years. Open to all, the event features dancing, drinks, food and music in an outdoor street setting.

Land and Sea Dept. commissioned artist Chad Kouri to create artwork for the event. Kouri is a frequent visitor to L&E, and the Chicago-based multi-disciplinarian is a co-founder of the art and design incubator Post Family.

Pipeworks x L&E “Brown & Stirred”

July 30, 2014

Our good friends at Chicago’s own Pipeworks Brewing recently asked us if we would be interested in collaborating on a beer. They had the idea of a cocktail inspired brew, we make a pretty mean Manhattan, so the obvious move was to try to make a Manhattan-inspired beer.

Starting with a very high amount of rye and a little bit of corn, we added lemon peel as well as a small amount of aromatic hops. After the boil, all of it went into the fermenter for about a week. Next, a small amount of cherry purée was added. During this time bittering roots (Angelica, Chinchona and Quinine) were being macerated. After the fermentation was complete, we went back and made a few Longman Manhattans (strictly for reference!), and started adding the bitters.

The result, “Brown and Stirred,” is a very unique Strong Rye Ale weighing in at 10.5% ABV.

Half this limited beer is available by the bottle and on draft (starting August 7), and is served in a proper Manhattan glass, over ice, with a twist of lemon. The other half of the beer that was made is now resting in used rye whiskey barrels. This will come to life, be kegged and bottled around the end of the year.  Stay tuned!
