Since the late 8th century Vikings have had their ups and downs in both historical context and pop culture. From the destruction of the abbey on Lindisfarne in England to the Norsemen and chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok raiding their way through your television set each fall on the History Channel, Vikings keep coming back.

Since SOB began its pillage on the great shores of Ogden Avenue back in 2012 we’ve seasonally brought you the malt-focused, Simcoe hop-driven, American India Pale Ale of Kidnapped By Vikings. For the first time ever we will be packaging this beer in sixteen-ounce vessels along with the fall canning of its brethren in Ravaged By Vikings and Death By Viking.


To commemorate this we are going to celebrate the only way we know how, by raising a glass. This September 16 we enter a new chapter. We enter a new Viking Age. With live music from Eliminator, the ZZ Top tribute band, and world class bratwursts available from Wurst Kitchen we’re going to bring this celebration to you Oktöberfest-style.

Saturday, September 16 from 4PM-10PM we’ll be opening the parking lot with a massive community-tabled tent, a killer band, incredible German-inspired eats, and the beer flowing with no three beer limit.


Date: Saturday, September 16 from 4PM-10PM.

Tickets go on sale Monday, August 7 at noon online. The link will be posted here and across all of our social media channels. There will only be 500 tickets available. I repeat, there will only be 500 tickets available. These will go quickly.


$15 – General Admission

This level gets you in the gate to enjoy the celebration and tunes and everything else is a la carte.

$25 – GA with Beer

The opportunity here includes admission but you will get a three tab wristband with your purchase for three sixteen-ounce beers. Keep in mind we will not be selling wristbands day of and beer pricing will be $6.50 drafts.

$35 – Tankard Style

Everything above will be included along with a .5 Liter SOB German Tankard glass to give yourself that “I’ve never been to Munich but I’ve heard great things” vibe. These glasses will be limited, but if any remain after ticketing we’ll be selling the few remaining at $15 per on the day of the event.
