(Naperville, IL) – Purveyors of a diverse lineup of small-batch craft beers, Naperville’s Solemn Oath Brewery [a BeerPulse sponsor] will debut across Chicagoland during Chicago Craft Beer Week. With an oft-changing portfolio of beers, the area’s newest, draft-only, production brewery will feature American, Belgo-American, traditional, wood-aged, and experimental styles.
John Barley – President/CEO of Solemn Oath Brewery
“Our time providing another quality, locally-produced beer option is just beginning. We could think of no better time to make our arrival than during the celebration of Chicago’s beer culture in Chicago Craft Beer Week. Khlöros, Oubliette, ultrahighfrequency, and Kidnapped By Vikings represent what we’re aiming to do, but they’re just the start. Be ready.”
Bob Collins – President/Partner of Windy City Distribution
“Windy City Distribution is proud to have the opportunity to work with Solemn Oath Brewery along with John and Joe Barley, as they are as dedicated to the local Craft Beer movement as we are. Head brewer TImothy Marshall is an incredible talent, and personally I cannot wait for Solemn Oath to roll out some of his wood-aged beers.”
Beers coming to market for CCBW:
Khlöros – ABV 4.5%
(KLOR-ohs) Light bodied and refreshing, our take on a Belgian white ale is delicately spiced with orange and lemon peels as well as Indian green coriander for a herbal, lemony character with some notes of summer stone fruit and citrus.
Oubliette – ABV 6%
(oob-LEE-ette) Aromatic Belgian malts and yeast combine with American variety hops in this golden blonde colored ale to produce a melange of fruit flavors including orange and grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit.
ultrahighfrequency – 7.5%
(ultra-high-frequency) This ruby colered American Red Ale is medium bodied and rich with toasted caramel malt flavors dominated by aggressive citrusy hops.
Kidnapped By VIkings – 6%
(kidnapped-by-vikings) Bursting with fresh hop aroma, our American IPA has a light malty sweetness to balance the dominant, pine/citrus hop presence.
