As others have mentioned, this place is a bit tricky to find on your first visit. As with Two Brothers, which is not too far away, its tucked away in an industrial park and there aren't really any signs to guide you.

The inside is very open with high ceilings and a simple industrial feel accented with a nice wood bar and shelving. There's no real barrier between customers and the actual brewing floor (just a elbow high white tile wall) so you get a nice open view of the equipment and brewers working their magic.

The bartenders are young, friendly and laid-back. They seem to know the beer fairly well, which is something you expect but don't always get. If this place was closer I would definitely frequent it on a semi-regular basis as the beer is fresh, tasty and in my opinion, very different from what a lot of other local breweries are making. All of Solemn Oath's beers have very Belgian inspired profiles which sets them apart in the exploding craft beer scene. (977 characters)

Very cool wide open industrial tasting room that smells of f awesome malt. Very friendly BT that helped me immediately. Smallish bar area of with nice people. Was a little hard to find, but plenty more of parking. Beer is good. No fun food, but fine. (255 characters)

This is in a small commercial space at the back of a commercial complex. The customer area is rather small with seating only at the bar. They have food vendors stop by since they do not serve food. They brew all sorts of stuff and are starting to offer a few fan favorites with some regularity. Most of their offerings have been on the hoppy side. I had a few darker beers recently that were brewed to standards. They only take credit cards and they have a buy a beer for a friend feature to get your friends to stop by. (526 characters)

Fantastic find - if you can find it - kinda sorta hidden in an industrial park. Usually a diverse selection of taps, small taproom can get crowded quickly. Food trucks add to the vibe. (184 characters)

Love grabbing a drink here, although the bombers are typically more expensive than if you buy them at the store. Very small taproom area, but friendly staff and cool vibe. (172 characters)
