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.

The Old Order IIII/ IIII/ – Bourbon-Barrel Aged Telegraph

Simcoe Dry-Hopped Bourbon-Barrel Aged Kavorka

Cask-Conditioned Lü

  • Every once in a while we need a break from ourselves as a hop-focused brewery. That’s where Lü, our Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal winning Kolsch comes in. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, much like yourself. Lately we’ve spending a lot of time honing our cask-conditioned skills. All things considered this is a world class beer served in the most traditional of styles, lets see what happens.

The goal we have at Solemn Oath is simple. And maybe someday you will figure out what that goal really is. We’re going to change the world, probably. Enjoy.
