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.
2018 is an important year for us at Solemn Oath and we have a lot of exciting projects going. This past year we've added capacity, introduced 16oz tall boys for the first time, and expanded our Taproom footprint. If you missed the announcement, we recently added Andrew Mason as our new director of brewery operations. In 2017 The Old Order was presented with a FoBAB-award winner, handed bottles of bourbon barrel-aged beers galore, and provided limited access to draft-only variants of every release. Again in 2017, we are proud to say more than 90% of our wood-aged beer reached the hands of members of The Old Order and their invited guests.
This is meant to inform you and let you know what's happening at SOB. As always you can hit us on the social medias if you have any questions.
“I look forward to joining the talented team at Solemn Oath,” said Mason. “Right now, we have a number of new and cool things planned for the year ahead. It’s an exciting time for the brewery and for me personally and professionally. I’m ready to get to work.”
Since then, like a Rolling Stones tour schedule, it just keeps coming back. Friday, August 18 we'll be re-introducing this beer to in a brand new portable format, canned.
To celebrate we're dropping Oktöberface cans for the first time ever, Nobel House is on the grill firing up sausages, and we're going to be toasting to while you sit down in comfort at one of our seven community tables or perhaps inside overlooking the brewhouse in a booth. We designed this for your comfort so you truly hope you come and enjoy. Now and most importantly, the beer.
This Saturday, July 22 we'll be setting the next release of The Old Order into the world. Man vs. Internet vs. Mothra brings an oaky, bourbon, and toasted coconut mélange (as Paul would say) to the front with this Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Red Ale. This beer spent twelve patient months in Four Roses bourbon barrels before being hand-bottled, one at a time, in a craft-beer-as-hell fashion here are the brewery in Naperville.
This is the release of Solemn Oath's newest creation Strange Old Woods, a double dry-hopped New England-style India Pale Ale. The owls are not what they seem and this beer is properly hazed.
