Barley’s Angels is a collection of individual chapters around the world expanding the appreciation and understanding of craft beer among women by bringing them together with craft beer professionals to explore craft beer.

Tickets: $15 and available via HERE.

Various Creative

June 12, 2014

Land and Sea Dept. is pleased to be partnering with Portland-based photozine Various Creative, in hosting their Chicago launch party.  The event takes place at the Off Site Bar at Longman & Eagle on Friday, June 27th.

Various Creative is a print-based project, one that uses a single quote per issue as creative inspiration for their broadly assembled contributors.  (In this case, for Various Three’, the quote is from Shel Silverstein.)  The results are clean and refreshing – art and works created solely for the very sake of creating.  Various sets itself apart by being a highly visual, physical and visceral offering in an increasingly digital, vapid world.

The launch event is free and open to the public.
Various Creative Chicago Launch
@ The Off Site Bar, at Longman & Eagle
7pm – 10pm

Evil Twin Brewing x Sunday Donut Shop

May 22, 2014

We were fortunate enough to secure a (one!) keg of Evil Twin’s coveted Imperial Doughnut Break beer, which we’ll be tapping this coming Sunday morning, in conjunction with our weekly Sunday Donut Shop pop up.

The beer is an Imperial Porter, topped off with an “insane amounts of doughnuts.” We’ll be offering it by the glass for $8, and will also have cans of Evil Twin’s Bikini Beer and Hipster Ale at $4 and $6 respectively.

Local Brewery Spotlight: Penrose

May 22, 2014

When Eric Hobbs (Founder, Penrose Brewing) was working for Goose Island Beer Company, he had a brewer back out on a beer dinner. That’s where Tom Korder (Brewmaster, Penrose Brewing) comes in. Korder, then a young brewer for Goose, walked in the door ready to work.

“I was nervous, because he looked like a young kid who was barely old enough to drink,” Hobbs said. “Sure as hell, man, the dude delivered.”

That’s when Hobbs knew he had found his business partner. Penrose began selling their Belgian-inspired ales to a small client base this past March. Located in Geneva, IL, they work out a 14,000 square foot facility, which includes a 2,000 square foot taproom. Their two lead beers, a Belgian Single called Proto Gradus and a Belgian Pale called P-2, have been accepted with open arms (or mouths, you could say).

Longman & Eagle was one of the first restaurants to serve Penrose beer, on tap. Currently featuring Proto Gradus on our draft list, we’ve become big supporters of their food-centric beers.

Recently L&E Bar Manager Phil Olson sat down with Eric Hobbs to chat about the past, present, and future of Penrose. You can read the whole conversation below…
