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.

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.

Staff knows their stuff. The motif is to the point and sticks with the image they perpetuate(gaudy/minimalist). The clientele can be pretty pretentious even by hipster standards but, hey, that's what you're asking for when you decide to sit in a place to drink designer beer that has an eye toward "fashion". They're the type that like bad art and other things people don't like. if it wasn't at the back end of an industrial park and hard to find, more people might know about this place and it wouldn't be so cool to be at. But I digress. They make great beer names.
