Established in 2017, the Viking Oktöberfest tradition continues September 15 at the brewery in Naperville.
After a sell out inaugural campaign, we’re throwing a bigger badder banger than ever before. Unlike Oath Day, this is a party rooted in Bavarian tradition with a healthy dose of Solemn Oath orchestrated chaos and influence. We’re also adding our first-ever family-friendly session in the morning complete with programming for the young ones. Keep reading. There’s more down there.
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.
Here we go full thrust into summer with high temps and a righteous sun for Memorial Day Weekend. Proper patio hangs at the Taproom are in order, we have Sunday planned for the city folk, and if you’re traveling we have you covered with many, MANY bitter treats to go.
A few basic items for the weekend and then see what we have for you each day down below.
On Saturday, June 10th we celebrated five years of being a brewery with a little something we call Oath Day.
If you made it out to Oath Day to celebrate with us, we thank you and we will raise a glass, probably several, to you this evening. If you missed out, take a look at these photos and weep. Hope you learned your lesson.
Here’s to five years. We strive to do you well.
It’s almost that time. Oath Day time.
Saturday, April 1st is a big day. Two brand new cans will be released to the world alongside a brand new coffee beer we’re calling Pain Café, and Pain Café’s younger brother, Pain Cave.
We have a lot planned in a short window but the main principle of Saturday, April 1 is to have a good time. These beers are not available for pre-sale and will be available while supplies last. Keep in mind that all of our beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized. Keep these beers cold and drink them fresh.
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.
We know you love hanging out in our taproom. We know you love drinking Solemn Oath at bars and restaurants. How about something a little more intimate?
We are thrilled to announce that private parties are now available for booking in a dedicated space at our brewery with a top-notch catering option designed just for Solemn Oath.
On Monday, January 5th we shut down our taproom so that the SOB staff could all party together.
And man, oh man, did we party hardy. Like, we ate Gushers and danced on tables and stuff. You’ve gotta do that kind of thing every once in a while to maintain your sanity.
