This place is awesome. But don't go just for the beer. There are better places nearby if you are looking for craft beer.

They have about 10 to 12 taps with a pretty broad selection. Usually one tap from Goose, one from Half Acre and maybe a Two Brothers tap and then maybe a New Belgium or Dogfish type selection and most of the rest are imports or offerings from larger breweries. The bottle list will add quite a few more options for you and none of the bottles seem too out of price for the area.

The food here is awesome. They have one of the best burgers in the city and at 12 bucks it's pretty standard in pricing for fancy burgers in this town. The rest of the menu could maybe be a bit intimidating to some diners, but every thing I've tried has been very tasty.

Definitely go here for food. Show up early (before 6:30) and you might have a shot at getting a table. If you're showing up after 7, I'm pretty sure you'll be lucky to find a bar seat.

Right across the street from the Logan Square blue line stop. All parking in this area is difficult because of the close proximity to the train stop.

I went to Longman and Eagle for lunch today. I really like the diversity in the beer menu, but if you like whiskey/bourbon/scotch their menu for those drinks is even more extensive and impressive. I had Unibroue Ephemere (on draft) and Unibroue Trois Pistoles (bottle) and each were $7. You can review the drink list online, but to summarize the draft selection, they don't have Miller or Bud Lite on draft. So the quality is there if you want to try new beers.

I had the Bahn Mi sandwich which was pretty good. The lunch menu is scaled down, but the food is high quality and diverse. The dinner menu is different and opens up with more variety.

There was a nice outdoor seating area located on the side street and not on Kedzie directly. It looks like it might be in the shade for most of the day. The bartender told me they also serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

I really liked Longman and Eagle and will be back to try some other beers. I saw they had whiskey flights to try as well, which would work really well once the weather turns cold.

The establishment is situated on the corner, conveniently across from the Logan Square blue line stop. Inside you get a feel that this has been a tavern of some sort for a long time, but has some creative modern touches while retaining a classic vibe. Apparently in the spring they will have rooms upstairs, and will be adding a breakfast menu, which sounded pretty ambitious.

Inside the lighting was low, a host station was just inside the door, and there were two main rooms with table seating. The bar was along the wall in the front room. There was a cool Wurlitzer juke in the back with an illuminated mountain scene on it. In the back room there was more table seating with some framed art on the brick walls by local artist Cody Hudson. The ceiling looks like the floor, just look up, you'll know what I mean.

Taps were on the center of the bar, emphasis on local stuff, 4 GI, 2 Half Acre, a Bells and some quality imports like St. Ambroise, Steigl, and Unibroue. Bottle list was more extensive, but mostly craft and import staples with few seasonals or limited offerings. Highlights were 3 trappists (Chimay x3, Orval, Westmalle x2), Cantillon Classic Gueuze, 5 Bells (2 Hearted, Java Stout, Kzoo Stout), DFH x3, FFF Pride & Joy, Duvel, Unibroue x2-3. The bourbon list was equally impressive with a broad range of selections.

The menu seemed to be the main draw, plenty of complex & ambitious dishes, and several simple & straightforward ones as well. I had the house-made pork sausage, which was served with greens, sliced apple/watercress, a very tasty "12-hour" sauerkraut, and a coarse mustard on the side. It was really delicious and thoughtfully put together. I'm definitely heading back here for dinner sometime.

Overall, this place is a fine dinner destination, with a good beer list to keep you occupied. Hopefully they can expand the beer selection and rotate taps to keep the beer crowd interested. Small Bar is just a stone's throw away, and Revolution will be open soon enough, making the area officially a beer destination.
