SOB Stories

Despite the title, there’s no whining here. Just a running chronicle of what makes us Solemn Oath–matters serious and funny, big and small, and so on and so on.

A few weeks back we hosted our inaugural White Van Custom Vans & Custom Van Art Show featuring more than sixty artists and their interpretation of van art on miniature vans. We know that is a lot of vans but if you read it slowly, it really does make sense.

The response from our fellow collaborators on these miniature vans was exceptionally humbling. We thank you for your participation and for coming to hang out at one of our favorite events in a long time. We're certain the White Van Art Show will return again soon and we'd love to have all of you back out for a new challenge.

A self proclaimed lover of the grungy/shitty look, the work of Ryan Thomas Monahan is absolutely stunning. Known for his miniature sculptures of street scenes, Ryan spends hours researching, sketching, planning, and considering before even making his first move on a project. Pay close attention to everything he creates, no detail is overlooked.

On Saturday, June 10th we celebrated five years of being a brewery with a little something we call Oath Day.

If you made it out to Oath Day to celebrate with us, we thank you and we will raise a glass, probably several, to you this evening. If you missed out, take a look at these photos and weep. Hope you learned your lesson.

Our passion is to make beer and every time we’re filling your glass we’re striving to create world class beverage. To do that, sometimes it means partnering with someone whose expertise fills a gap for us and whose collaborative efforts make us stronger.

Recently I sat down with Jay Cunningham, wholesale sales and coffee buyer for Intelligentsia and SOB’s beer sherpa. We’ve been working with Jay for the last four years on various coffee beer projects, a mere blip in his seventeen years in the coffee game. Jay is someone who, like me, has a kind of insatiable desire to find out what coffee beer can be. With our creations we hope to challenge your palate with something interesting and exceptional; we also hope to educate you about how we see the mashup of coffee and beer evolving and the role we strive to play in that.
