At 11AM for members of The Old Order and 3PM for the common people, we introduce åldrad gammelgädd (ALL-drad GAMM-el-GED). Big botanical juniper and vanilla waves emerge from this nordic farmhouse ale aged rightly in gin barrels. It’s cocktail-driven cousin, åldrad gammelgädd w/ Cucumber and Lemon, will be released alongside it in addition to two fresh hop-forward beers. Keep reading, it’s going to be awesome.
SOB’s The Old Order is kind of like a mug club for the wood-aged beer seekers of our community and those looking to be a part of a unique family of like-minded individuals. The membership is only open to new members in December but fear not, some bottles are allocated from each release to the general public.
Gin Barrel-Aged Nordic Farmhouse Ale 9% ABV.
Description: Gammelgädden are the wiley northern pike that live in the depths of Swedish lakes and rivers. We took our already aromatic nordic farmhouse ale and aged it in gin barrels to give it even more depth of flavor and aroma. Big botanical juniper aroma and vanilla from the oak makes this a special beer to enjoy.
åldrad gammelgädd w/ Cucumber and Lemon
Gin Barrel-Aged Nordic Farmhouse Variant 9% ABV.
Description: Born from the same gin barrels we aged our base Gammelgädden in, we took our unique nordic farmhouse ale and added fresh cucumber and lemon peels to add a cocktail dimension to this complex beer.
American IPA 6% ABV
Description: Our tribute to the Southside. A beer that isn’t trying to put on airs and definitely one that you wouldn’t get the side eye from your friends if you were offering it to them as they sat in your frunchroom watching Abreu hit another home run in a loss to Cleveland. Classic American IPA brewed with centennial, cascade, and Denali.
Hazy Pale Ale 5.5% ABV
Description: An aerial fruit-punchy hazy pale ale made in tribute to the nuptials of our friends, Cornell and Brian. A partner of ours through Windy City, Cornell has helped bring our beers to the thousands of supporting accounts we have across Chicagoland since day one. Mushy mandarin orange wind gusts and a design for fireside outdoor enjoyment.
On Saturday, September 22 at 11AM at the brewery we will be making the third release of the 2018 TOO calendar available to members. Two of the åldrad gammelgädd bottles are included in your membership. It should be noted the release party is open to members only and their chosen guest. If you are a member, you should have received an email from us with details. If you have not, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get to the bottom of why you aren’t receiving our emails.
There will be food available for purchase from our great friends at Craft Urban from 11AM-3PM. Keep this in mind.
For you non-joiners, Saturday, September 22 at 3PM in the SOB Taproom you’ll have access to what remains after members take the first crack at the extra bottles. At this time these beers will be made available to anyone and everyone.
These beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized so please keep these beers cold and drink them fresh.
The goal we have at Solemn Oath is simple. And maybe someday you will figure out what that goal really is. We’re going to change the world, probably. Enjoy.
