We are beyond excited to have MARZ Community Brewing taker over the OSB this upcoming Tuesday. We will be featuring 4 of their beers on draft throughout the night. On tap will be:

Bubbly Creek Yuzu – A tart refreshing Berliner-Weisse with a touch of Yuzu for a dry, citrus accent.

Smoke Wheat Every Day – A Gratzer, made with oak smoked wheat.

Jungle Boogie – American Wheat beer infused with Rooibos tea for a unique, earthy, herbal undertone.

The Machine – An American Pale Ale with a nod towards the only sport Chicagoans can agree on, Politics.

As if that wasn’t enough, Mash Tun Journal will be in house selling copies. Mash Tun is an impressive documentation of all things craft beer. Six Packs of their previous issues will be available or individual releases.

Josh Kurpius

December 10, 2014

We are so very pleased to be showcasing the photographic work of Josh Kurpius at Longman & Eagle currently, an exhibition of works that will be on display in both the restaurant proper and the OSB for the immediate future.

Kurpius is regarded for his photographs of motorcycles, motorcyclists and the surrounding culture, vivid testimonials to the pursuit of good times, personal freedom, and out and out ramblin’. A comprehensive survey of his work was recently exhibited at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.

We encourage you to visit Longman to see the works, and we also suggest spending some time perusing his site, as the stuff is, truly, magic.

Mercenary Brewing Launch

November 14, 2014

Longman & Eagle is proud to welcome one of Chicago’s newest craft brewers to our neighborhood, Mercenary Brewing. Operating right around the corner, you’d be hard pressed to find a more “local” brewery to L&E than this one. Founded by some friends with a passion for homebrewing, Mercenary is working to bring balanced, straightforward beers to the Chicago market.

In order to celebrate their arrival, We will be tapping both of their current offerings on Wednesday, November 19th. We will feature Charlatan, their impressively balanced pale ale, along with Fat Pug, a dark, roasty, milk stout. Both beers are aggressively approachable, if that is such a thing – extremely balanced and drinkable but with a nuanced complexity that would please even the pickiest beer nerds out there. Please join us on Wednesday in welcoming Mercenary to the neighborhood.

Michelin, Again!

November 13, 2014

We are once again so very humbled to receive ‘star’ recognition from the Michelin Guide folks, as a part of their 2015 Chicago Guide.

To think we’d even be open for (nearly) five years now is as much a surprise as anything, but receiving our fifth star in as many years is gratifying.

It serves as a testament to our staff – back of house, bartenders, front of house, kitchen, management, everyone! – and its pleasing to see all those many hours of hard (hard) work get the sort of recognition we feel our staff deserves.

Congratulations to everyone on the Longman staff, and to the many others in Chicago recognized (across categories) by Michelin – we’re all so very pleased to be a part of a culinary landscape that is so creative, inclusive and vibrant.

Off Color Biére de Gaurd Dog Launch

November 4, 2014

We are excited to be able to offer the newest beer from our friends of at Off Color, beginning on Wednesday, November 5th.

Biére de Gaurd Dog is what results when Oktoberfest meets Saison. Packed with Vienna, Munich and Pils malts for a big, rich body balanced by the spiciness of the Streisselspalt hops and French saison yeast. It’s like the spicy fall brother of Apex Predator. We’ll be tapping the first keg at 6pm on Wednesday.

And we’re not finished there! We will also have a firkin of Apex Predator dry-hopped with Cascade hopes for a more classic American hop aroma, with huge notes of citrus and orange peel. Supply will be extremely limited, so get it while you can.
