Oath Day Six Nitty Gritty

We’re coming up on the sixth epoch in the world of Oath and June 9th we celebrate. Each year this beer party and celebration of all things SOB just keeps getting bigger and stronger. Oath Day Six will not disappoint and we can’t wait to hang with you.

As we have each year we’d like to let you know that the point of Oath Day is to have a good time. Be responsible, be smart, and plan ahead so you don’t have to figure anything out the day of. We would like to continue to have the option to celebrate on a large scale, so we ask that you respect our neighbors, respect our municipal partners, get a ride, and conduct yourselves in a manor similar to how your mother talks about you to her friends. We cool? Good.

An Anonymous & Unofficial SOB Survey

Thrown annually by Lou Dog Events, Naperville Ale Fest is something we at SOB look forward to. Not only is it pretty much thrown in our backyard, but it’s put on by some great people and draws in folks from all over.

This year we decided to mix things up a bit and gave attendees an “Anonymous & Unofficial SOB Survey” card to fill out and drop off in a box at our booth. There were eight different questions and they were randomly dispersed amongst the crowd. Here are some of our favorite responses.
