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.

The taproom opens up straight into the brewery. The space is fairly small (understandably) which at times can make it cramped, but being in close quarters with the other patrons has never led to an issue for me.
If you're in for the first time -- payment is credit/debit only, and local ordinance caps consumption at 3 beers per person, so plan to purchase a growler to go if you like anything in particular.
