It is official. Oath Day Six is coming. Our lights are still on as we approach seventy-two months of having provided you with Solemn Oath beers.

Again this year we'll be setting the garage doors free, opening up as much of our brewery as we possibly can, taking over our parking lot, and throwing one of the strangest and most chill parties the Midwest has to offer. We'll have tons of pouring stations to minimize lines, a massive beer list filled with our most innovative brews, incredible restaurant and food truck partners, and copious collaborators. This year we're featuring a market filled with unique artisans, a live band unlike most anything you've seen, fresh beard trims, and orchestrated disorder of all things Oath.

The righteously radical rollout of 2018 continues for us here at SOB. Feel the angst, feel the vibe. More beers new and returning are en route over the next several weeks as we continue to push ourselves and bring you this fiery array.

Soon you will see the return of an SOB legacy, some amaranthine isness, and a spark to to the debate of sizeism in this country. We'll learn what's glitter is really more of a pale gold, hand you mallows upon mallows, and introduce you to a long forgotten style that had a revival with the fall of the Iron Curtain. All but one of these beers will be bottled or canned. We hope you've been enjoying our beer year so far, because we sure as hell are.

There are events that happen in our lives that define us. A new job, a first house, or falling in love. This isn't one of those times. This is just going to be the time that you ate a really fucking hot taco.

Together with our friends from Quiubo and Bien Trucha, we would like to invite you to the End All Taco Challenge. This will require you to sign a waiver.

Anyone can throw a party celebrating an annual anniversary. At Solemn Oath we enjoy like doing things a little bit differently. Saturday, February 17 will be the 2,100th day our Taproom has existed. What better way than to raise a coffee beer filled glass?

Our friends from Intelligentsia will be hanging while serving coffee and fresh beans to go with tasty treats from The Almighty Dark Horse. The party will go from 11AM to 3PM. Three-tab wristbands will be sold for $21 if you wish to enjoy the specialty beers. Each tab is good for either: one full pour of any beer OR two 4oz pours of the specialty coffee beers. Wristbands will be sold upon entry into the release party area.

We have no intention of even trying to catch our breath in 2018. Our brew calendar is packed with a healthy balance of innovative beers in the styles you seek, innovative beers in the styles you SHOULD seek, and classic SOB standbys for everyday crushers.

This month we're dropping a brand new year-round instigator, a slight end of winter warmer of Belgian inspiration, one of the most celebrated DIPAs we ever release, a hot off the press American India Pale Ale to fill that empty hole in your soul, and more. Buckle up, stay in tune with what we're talking about, and keep an eye out for the newest of the new and the freshest of the fresh. The Solemn Oath beer-centric chaos of 2018 is in full swing.

Real beer lovers know what to look for. In 2016 Solemn Oath Brewery was honored with a Bronze Medal at the Great American Beer Festival for Lü in the German-Style Koelsch category.

You have to win to get bronze. You have to lose to get silver. It's Bronzetime™.

The first beer ever to coin the name barleywine was Bass No. 1 Ale released in 1870. Saturday, February 3 we give nod to this distinctive style with the release of five beers, four wood-aged and our first English-Style version.

The Old Order is our small membership group at Solemn Oath for those that want guaranteed and advanced access to our most limited beers coming out of barrels. You can learn more about that by checking out our website, memberships for the 2018 rendition will close on Friday.

We at Solemn Oath are entering 2018 with a lot of new things to bring to you. Recent tank additions have freed up ability to make more frequent and innovative offerings, our barrel program volume and variety continues to grow as you'll see right out of the gate with the first quarter release for The Old Order in February, and we are firing out cans like never before.

Within the midst of that chaos, certain beers demand that they return with a quality you require and a demand worthy of fighting their way through a market hell bent on new new new. We are thrilled to bring you this year's rendition of Most Important Beverage of the Day and Beverage of Champions (x2).

We have no idea where this will lead us, but we have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

On Friday, December 22 at 4PM we'll be releasing Wonderful & Strange, a brand new double dry-hopped New England style IPA in four-pack 16oz. cans. Distinct from both Strange Old Woods and Call It What You Want before it, Wonderful & Strange is danker than those  tasty A-Frame waves Jeff Spicoli based his life around. Mosaic meets Mandarina Bavaria in a complex amalgamation of the ultimate sploof-inspired sticky take on the style of IPA rooted in the haze of the original Thirteen Colonies.
