The culture at Solemn Oath Brewery is a pillar of who we are. Each part of the success of this brewery has come from the passion of the people who work here.
And we’re hiring.
And we’re hiring.
“Eric is a proven leader who understands the industry, and most importantly, this market,” says John Barley, President of Solemn Oath Brewery. “Our operations team is making world-class beer, we recently made a massive infrastructure investment, and now we’re building the team that’s going to help our company take the next step forward. We’ve been ready for it, but now we have the guy to help get us there.”
We appreciate your patience. We appreciate your support. While we’ve had twenty-two ounce bottles for several years, this is a new endeavor for us into the off-premise world. Thank you for helping us get here and we’ll continue to work hard to get even more fresh, world class, beer into your hands.
Oath Day is here. Below is a bit of information that will be useful for you to make the best of tomorrow. We’re gonna have a good time.
QUICK SIDE NOTE: Session One sold out but there may be a couple Session Two tickets available. Scoop them RIGHT HERE. Ticket sales close at 10AM tomorrow morning before the event and walk-ups will not be allowed.
We at Solemn Oath Brewery are proud to announce the release of .003-bbl Legless Portable Handheld Serving Vessels with Manual Single-Use Manways. Cans. Snaggletooth Bandana in cans. In honor of those that helped complete our expansion we’ll be releasing a special edition can that will be available Oath Day, May 14. Snaggletooth Bandana cans will then be released city wide in late May. As always, we thank you for your continued support.
This quarter features two separate releases again in The Old Order III & IIII, including our first-ever bottled blend. And no. We aren’t idiots when it comes to Roman numerals. They’re tallies. Any asshole can use Roman numerals. We’re guessing we’ll just have to figure something out when we surpass thirty.
Exhibit A: Oath Day Four. If you were a love child of flower children, you remember hanging out with your cousins in Uncle Gary’s sweet basement in the ’70s. If not, this is your lucky day. We’ll keep the beer flowing, lines non-existent, and sweet sounds of funk, soul, proto-punk, outlaw country, and Zeppelin piped into your eardrums. Two sessions, promiscuous approach to doors, coffee beers, barrel-aged beers, and great food. We’ll supply plenty of company if you can’t wrangle any friends to come with you.
The base beer is a milk stout brewed with a mellow, sweet, slightly toasty Scottish malt as the base along with English roasted barley, two types of chocolate malt, and dark crystal malt. A high rate of lactose leads to a high finishing gravity, full body, and velvety mouthfeel. Mild additions of Centennial hops provide a foundation of orange flavor within the darker malt-derived complexity. The result is a roasty, chocolatey, nearly smoky base that fully coats the palate and lingers with the distinctive sweetness of chocolate-covered malt balls.
At Solemn Oath we refuse to cut corners in anything that we do and put everything we have into ensuring that the beer that reaches your mouth is both creative and a world class product. Now we enter a new chapter of small release beers. As we’ve said before, SOBs have only been able to drink our wood-aged offerings on draft at either the taproom or craft-focused #oathspots around Chicagoland. This changes over the next few weeks. Here’s the deal.
