John Greenfield brings us a recording of a live performance!
A 7-foot, 300-pound bronze statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will be placed in a more visible location on state grounds, nearly a year after African-American community leaders asked for the move.
Why not The General?!
Logan Square hit-maker joins campaign to relocate statue.
Be among the first to hear John Greenfield’s newest song demanding the relocation of Gen. Logan’s statue from a lonely corner in Grant Park to his rightful home in Logan Square. And then join us for a beer and song release party Wednesday!

Draught beer and public houses have played a crucial role in the American democratic experiment. The American Revolution was planned and fomented in colonial taverns, with frothy mugs in hand.
Today, barrelled-beer and taverns continue to be central in building dynamic, vital communities, offering public gathering spaces and promoting hospitality.
The Logan Square Draught Beer Preservation Society works to further our participatory democracy by protecting beer drinkers’ rights and advocating for improved public beer drinking facilities in Chicago’s Logan Square community.
The Society’s Central Committee has adopted the following ‘Draught’ 6-Point Action Agenda for 2010:
1. Bring Back the Draught Campaign.
Each Logan Square tavern shall dedicate a minimum of six taps and purvey a diverse selection of quality ales and lagers to the community. All package stores shall strive to obtain tavern status in order to offer fresh, barrel-beer service.
2. Land Use and Zoning.
No Logan Square residence shall be further than 175 meters from a public house tap.
3. Honest Weights and Measures.
Logan Square shall adopt the Imperial Pint as the standard serving container for all local draught ale and lager service.
4. Logan Square Home Brewers Guild.
Recognizing that many of America’s founding fathers were homebrewers, the Society shall facilitate networking among local brewers to build community leadership.
5. Beer Garden Openspace Campaign.
Sunshine, flowers and draught beer are a pleasing combination. Conversely, the presence of parkinglots and cars can detract from the tapped beer experience. The Society promotes the conversion of parkinglots and other paved areas to green areas, open space and beer gardens.
6. Bring Gen. Logan Home! Campaign
The Society is a leader in the movement to relocate John A. Logan’s statue from a lonely corner of Grant Park to the community that bears his name.
We invite you to join us and ‘Bring Back the Draught’ to Logan Square!
