Taproom

Welcome to our home. We do things a little differently here. Now wipe your damn feet.

The best place to experience Solemn Oath is right here in our taproom. You can purchase pints, flights, and growlers, as well as merchandise, just feet from where our beer is made. The only physical separation between the taproom and the brewery is a half-wall, so all the sights, sounds, and smells of the brewing process are always on full display. We try to keep the acid burns to a minimum and our brewers have trained rigorously to avoid gracing a full taproom with views of their intergluteal cleft, but we can’t do much about the summer heat except joke about installing fake palm trees for the season.

Good beer. Good friends. So-so 90’s music.

You’ve been warned

3 Serving Limit

There is a three-serving limit per person per day. You’ll thank us and the city of Naperville for not having to deal with Five-Deep Freddy on Friday night. A full pour of a beer or a flight of four beers is considered a serving.

Just Our Beer Here

You won’t find any other beer, wine, or liquor at our taproom. No food either, but you’re welcome to bring some or have it delivered. Better, come out when we have a food truck making it fresh just outside our doors.

No Cash

We do not accept cash at our brewery. That’s right; no cash. Your drinking will have to be on the books, friend. You could always run to Walgreen’s and grab a pre-paid Visa, but that would just be sad. Sad, sad, sad.

No Tips

As we’re plastic-only, our bartenders do not accept tips. You may, however, purchase a beer for your bartender. Just say, “Hey, put one on there for yourself.” Nice to decommodify a personal interaction, isn’t it?

No Food

You say ‘kitchen,’ we say ‘we don’t want nothing to do with that.’ However, you are more than welcome to bring your own, order in, or check out the food trucks that swing by. Check out the Events page to see which trucks are coming.

Beer For Friends

Drinking great beer in great company is our favorite way to get after it. But sometimes you’ll find yourself at our taproom wishing a friend were there. For those occasions, we’ve got you covered. You can buy a full pour, flight, or growler for an absentee buddy and we’ll put it right up on our Beer For Friends board. The next time they come in, they can redeem the beer. If they’re worth your friendship they will slap one on the board for you in return. Heads up: we remove listings from the Beer For Friends board after sixty days, but they never expire. You bartender will find your listing in the Book of Shame, denoted "BOS" below. If you're not seeing the search function on mobile, try turning your phone sideways.

Growlers

Treat your growlers like you treat your loved ones: keep them cold and don’t shake them. Shelf life varies depending on the beer and who you ask. Oh, you’re asking? Well, we find that you’ll virtually always be safe if you open and drink your growler within four days. Once you open it, finish it by the next day. When done, rinse thoroughly with warm water, allow to dry, and store with the cap off. That’s OFF.

We do not fill growlers other than SOB growlers. Prices vary by beer. Not all beers are available in growlers. We will not fill growlers that smell moldy or funky. We rinse all growlers before filling them, but we have no way to clean them as quickly and effectively as we would need to to accept your stank.

Private Parties

Technically, we don’t do private parties… but everything has a price. If you think you can afford it, email erin@solemnoathbrewery.com for more info.
