We have three fresh IPAs coming out including Project Apollo, our celebrated Strange Old Woods, and a brand new creation of ours called Big Lake Waves. Project Apollo is a collaboration project between Solemn Oath, Adler Planetarium, Binny’s, Chicago’s Omega Yeast, Country Malt Group, and Hopsteiner. This is the Earth version of this beer as we continue strive to send ingredients into the stratosphere via high altitude balloon and brew a beer with them. Learn more about Project Apollo right here.
India Pale Ale
SOB/Adler/Binny’s/Omega Yeast/Country Malt Group/Hopsteiner Collaboration
Brewed in honor of and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest achievements of Mankind, the moon landing of Apollo 11. Our four hops we chose were obvious selections, Apollo, Comet, Galaxy, and Strata. Project Apollo has a beautiful light orange hue and an aroma that feels like it’s erupting from the bottom of a Saturn 5. This beer pulls from the earth and the sky for its flavors and aromas. It’s a blend of grapefruit citrus, passionfruit tropical; astrally fruity and bolstered by our Norwegian farmhouse yeast from Omega that makes it totally out of this world. Apollo has a balanced bitterness with a gently fruity sweet finish. We think it’s a fitting tribute worthy of such a great milestone.
Strange Old Woods
Double Dry-Hopped New England-Style IPA
Another glorious restock of super fresh Strange. A mammoth feast of papaya, passionfruit, mango, tangerine and key lime. Properly hazed, mellowed bitterness and a round mound of ripe and juicy hop flavor.
Big Lake Waves
India Pale Ale
There are a few fleeting weekends in the hottest days of the summer when Lake Michigan is warm enough to enjoy without the worry of frostbite. On a rare occasion those warm water days coincide with big lake waves crashing on the beach and us midwesterners can pretend we’re swimming in a saltless ocean. This IPA is brewed to commemorate and celebrate the greatest lake, on the scarcest of days. Brewed with Jarrylo and Styrian Wolf for a one-two punch of strawberry, stone fruit, passion fruit and citrus.
On Friday, June 21 starting at 5PM we’ll have all the beers available for to go and on draft at SOB. Join us or scoop your Project Apollo 4PKs at Binny’s locations across Chicagoland.
These beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized so please keep these beers cold and drink them fresh. Lots of hops here, keep these puppies cold.
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.
