As the Midwest finally thaws we enter Solemn Oath’s period for cool spring sippers. This year we’re celebrating our actual fifth birthday week by releasing a pair of beers that will scratch that wood-aged itch. But they’re not alone, they’re bringing friends.
The Old Order continues Saturday, May 20 with the featured release of Heavyweight Ticklefight Champion of the World and Barrel-Aged Telegraph. These graceful displays of a couple of our favorite high-gravity creations each sat twelve months in bourbon barrels before giving us the thumbs up of readiness. Heavyweight features rich caramel, vanilla, and toffee malt character with subtle oak and spirit notes. Telegraph, our celebrated Scotch Ale, parades its rich raisin and subtle roast malt character with notes of toasted coconut, oak, and bourbon. The party starts at 10AM for members and noon for everyone.
An aromatic detonation of pineapple, passionfruit, and citrus is what we at Solemn Oath thrive on. Since our humble beginnings in 2012, we’ve been toying with fruity Trappist yeast along with a focus on the most American of hops. This sunshine-colored Double IPA is the latest evolution of our signature style.
On Friday, May 19 we will debut a brand new piece of the Solemn Oath family with this one-time-only release. We Fear Change. Nine percent ABV.
We are officially back in business in Wisconsin and looking forward to hanging with so many friends and craft supporters to the north. Cans and draft will be readily available in the coming weeks and we’re kicking things off with Milwaukee as you read this. Madison will follow as we jump off the week of May 15.
Wisconsin is a second home to SOB. I’m (Ed. note: SOB President John Barley) from there and we have a number of big things in store in the coming years for the state. We’re thrilled to be kicking off our partnership with General Beverage and if you haven’t yet seen, we’re also hiring a Market Manager for Wisconsin. Apply yourself or tell your friends and family.
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.
The Old Order 2017 begins Saturday, March 4 with the release of Limousine of the Damned. This intrepid blend of Russian imperial stout, American barleywine, and Scotch ale aged twelve months in bourbon barrels took home a bronze medal in the experimental beer category at the 2015 Festival of Barrel Aged Beers.

Bigger, better, and more badass. This Saturday, January 21 will be the release of Most Important Beverage of the Day and Beverage of Champions. Won’t you join us for this Most Important Day of Beverage?
We have a lot planned in a small window but the main principle of Saturday is to have a good time. What are these beers you ask? Learn more right here. Pre-sale for Most Important Beverage of the Day will close at noon on Friday, January 20th.
Alright, back to Saturday’s release. If you have questions tweet us at @solemnoathbeer. This is what’s up.
Before you commit any of your hard-earned dollars to purchasing Most Important Beverage of the Day or Beverage of Champions, I want you to know the ins and outs of these beers, how we make them, why we love them, and what you can expect to taste.
The announcement of these two beers means that coffee beer season at SOB is upon us.
Within the walls here at the brewery we look at 2017 as the beginning of Solemn Oath 2.0. This year we’ll be celebrating our fifth anniversary, which is crazy. With your ongoing support we have accomplished some incredible things.
We have cans all over the Chicagoland market, an incredible amount of supporting accounts in the draft world, and our wood-aged beer membership, The Old Order, continues to grow and thrive. With this growth comes a renewed focus on innovation that I can tell you is part of our foundation in 2017, 2018, and beyond.
