We won’t be selling. We won’t be pushing. We won’t be trying to convince you of anything at all. These are a few moments for you to relax and enjoy some beer. And let this serve as a reminder to us all that at least some of the time, that’s really all a brewery should be.
PHOTO: Snaggletooth Bandana, our American IPA, officially became a beer that will be available year-round. We started this brewery in 2012 making tons of different styles and evolution is still what we're targeting today for our beer line up. Some of the beers are just making their way to the top.
PHOTO: SOB Brewer Lou Waldmeir checks out the boil on Batch #333, Pernicieux. Lou speaks fluent German and takes a few weeks each year to go back there. Now that I think about that, he's probably a spy.
PHOTO: A more recent addition to the SOB crew, marketing and sales manager Trish Rooney probably has more beer in her car right now than you've consumed in the last six months. For someone who loves Chicago, she talks a lot about Iowa and Boston. Call her out on it.
PHOTO: We receive some sort of shipment of materials at least every day. With us not having a silo we take in frequent shipments of fifty and fifty-five pound bags of grain from all over the world. Here's cellarman Mike Murphy rocking the fork.
PHOTO: As you may expect, the brewers table is a beacon of organization with everything set in its own specific and precise location. Sometimes, though, that specific and precise location happens to be the same pile as some other shit.
PHOTO: Our best beer is the freshest one and this week that's Man vs. Internet. Check out the ruby red marbling on that pour in the glass.
PHOTO: SOB Illustrator Jourdon Gullet has his hands in everything you've ever seen aesthetically with the brewery. We've been working with him on the visual identity of this brewery since before we opened. Here, you see him rocking out a camera design for this very post. He did it today and it took him about about an hour. We're fortunate to work with awesome people.
The vision of Solemn Oath has always been built around the ideal that every idea should be challenged with a fresh voice. And if that idea continues to fight through, our end result is always stronger. Always better. We’re changing the world, probably.
