Forget CNN. We can tell you what’s happening in the world. Some shit’s blowing up. Some is hitting the fan. Here’s your fleeting escape.
Earlier this year, we began this discussion. Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting and I began talking about how to tell this story. A story of siblings, not only actual but within the industry. Who better to team up with on this than brothers Jim and Jason Ebel of Two Brothers Brewing Co. Brothers making more beer in the state of Illinois than anyone outside of Goose Island and the ones who helped pave the way for the next wave.
Here are the details.
Either way, the leaves are changing, the harvest is upon us, and it is no longer 116 degrees fahrenheit in the taproom. Oktoberface is already available, Salty Beard made its debut, and more fresh beer is on the autumnal horizon. Here goes.
In case you missed it, we recently released Hexafoos and None More Black. We have some more Wreckagemaster out, and the last batches of this year's Snaggletooth Bandana are coming out of the tanks as we start brewing Kidnapped By Vikings in its place this week.
In the surrounding days and weeks, we continue making beer. Snaggletooth Bandana and Mr. Inappropriate will be around for awhile longer. Oxford Comma and Lil' Spitfire are on their way out. Here's all the rest.
For the foreseeable future, we will be releasing two beers per month in limited volume. Until sold out, 22 oz. bottles will be available at the Solemn Oath taproom as well as many of your favorite liquor stores across the Chicagoland area. We ask that you contact your local liquor store directly regarding their availability of Solemn Oath releases.
In its first year they've been able to draw 75+ breweries who are coming on board to pour over 180 beers. General admission tickets are a reasonable $45 and the VIP offerings are already sold out. Back in March, Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting sat down with Josh to gain some insights into his passion and drive to bring this project to light.
