The people and establishments that support our brewery influence who we are. They keep us in check and aid in our survival as a business. With that, we thank everyone that came out to B&L for our first anniversary on Saturday, May 18. We thank the great people of Lost Abbey, a brewery we hold in the highest regard, for taking over half of the draft list for our celebration.
Solemn Oath's heart beats collectively, built from the experiences of each of its members. And as we grow as a brewery, a piece of that heart will always be at 1670 W. Division in Chicago with the fine people of Bangers & Lace.
Our first year is over. We can only wonder will change. Tattoos? Maybe Eric will shave his beard. Probably not.
Sometimes at the brewery we listen to rock and sometimes we listen to rap. On occasion you might hear some jazz, pop, or a splash of early punk. The important thing to realize is that we’re always lively. Always accomplishing something. Always planning for what we hope will not be your favorite new thing, or the brewery’s favorite new thing, but our favorite thing together. Never complacent and always adapting. Changing the world, probably. These are those stories.
