The piece, written by Kelsey Vala, focuses on the various eating, drinking and sleeping options at Longman, accompanied by outstanding photographic work by Laura Dart.
Kinfolk is a quarterly ad-free print magazine that “collects ideas from a growing international community of artists, cooks, designers, photographers, writers and others who are interested in creating small gatherings and finding new things to make and do.” Each release features “lush photography, lyrical essays, recipes, interviews, profiles and personal stories and practical tips, along with a keen attention to design and detail.”

Friend of L&E Ryan Duggan comes through with another good design for us. This time a shirt celebrating the release of the Ram Eagle barrel-aged Baltic Porter beer we made in collaboration with Goose Island (also the last chef collaboration beer Brewmaster Jared Rouben made before leaving Goose). The beer (named by Executive chef Jared Wentworth) was aged in two empty Willett Bourbon Barrels that used to hold our now coveted 21 year old whiskey, “Longman” and “Eagle”. The beer may be gone already but you can keep the dream alive with the shirt. Now available in our web store.
