Solemn Oath is a great brewery with a very nice selection of craft beers that have great flavors, awesome names, and a change from the standard beer recipe. The location can be alittle difficult to find witbout GPS and their is tight but they are working on that currently. Solemn Oath serves no food but the management brings in mobile food service which have been of great quality, thanks for that. The brewery is not air conditioned in the summer so it can get warm on a hot summer day. I do like the 3 beer max purchase per visit, based on credit card purchase, this keeps folks from having too much and helps circulate customers. I always look forward to visiting Solemn Oath, keep up the good work.

I like the "buy one for your friend when they come in later" board

This is the cool little brewery in uncool Naperville. Not sure how these hipsters and makes of unique brews landed around this town. Located in an industrial park, the taproom smells good from the parking lot. Busy on a Friday at 1pm, mostly with young folks of the cool-pretty kind. I got a flight of 4 brews for 10 bucks, all big pours served in wine glasses!

9 taps, but 2 kicked. Service was friendly and the taproom is a cool place to chill and try some brews, although I’ll say I wasn’t fully impressed by their highly-regarded brews except for the mighty Full Metal Jacket. I also bought a pricey $25 bottle of their collab with Bruery that was delicious.

I can tell that the brewery has an attitude, and their website comes across as arrogant and annoying. However the folks at the taproom and the atmosphere were anything but. Definitely a must stop in the Western Suburbs.

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.

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.
