In modern society, 'The Rule of Three' is a writing principle in which grouping things in threes is funnier, more interesting, and a better way to communicate your point. Charles Dickens's used this principle in a A Christmas Carol with the three spirits. There's the Three Little Pigs and the Three Stooges. There's also always the Latin phrase 'omne trium perfectum' means everything that comes in threes is perfect.
At Solemn Oath we brought this to the American IPA. When we hit the market in May 2012 we began with Kidnapped By Vikings in our initial lineup. Later that year we released Ravaged By Vikings, a double IPA that stood as the older and cooler brother of Kidnapped, much like Joe to John. Earlier this week we announced the pending arrival of Death by Viking, thus completing our viking triptych.
This is month two and we will continue to be releasing two beers per month in limited volume. Until sold out, twenty-two ounce 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.
This worked pretty well. So in an effort to continue to help other SOBs locate our beer in bottles, we ask you to utilize the hashtag #SOBbottles across social media along with where you saw them available for purchase.

Sometimes we regale you with stories. Sometimes they’re about bottles. Sometimes those stories are made up. Sometimes they’re not stories at all. Sometimes they’re really just news. This is one of those stories.
