Man vs. Internet has been an annual staple and one of the most highly-sought beers at Solemn Oath since our founding in 2012. Mothra is more sporadic. Mothra just comes occasionally. You might kill Mothra, but she never really dies.

This Saturday, July 22 we’ll be setting the next release of The Old Order into the world. Man vs. Internet vs. Mothra brings an oaky, bourbon, and toasted coconut mélange (as Paul would say) to the front with this Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Red Ale. This beer spent twelve patient months in Four Roses bourbon barrels before being hand-bottled, one at a time, in a craft-beer-as-hell fashion here are the brewery in Naperville.

Here’s the scoop, here’s the skinny:
