Small tap room with a pretty decent rotating selection of their beers. Occasionally crack a keg of a barrel aged beer or special release. Bottles to go and growler fills available but need one of their growlers. Food trucks regularly visit. Credit card only.

Great, 4,000 sq.ft., of outdoor space, area to drink beer. Food trucks on weekends. Great beer with a Belgian influence.

Just visited for a few samples on a free night during a work trip to nearby Aurora. I really liked the brewery -- cool little place, tucked into a corner. No TVs (but half the patrons were watching the Vikings/Seahawks game on their phones). Staff clearly knew about half the people there. I talked with my bartender a fair amount -- friendly, knowledgeable, committed the brewery faux pas of actually telling me her opinion of some of their offerings she didn't like ("Oh, everything we make is really good" is such a useless answer, I'm sorry). A little less than half their offerings appeared to be IPAs of one sort or another (each one I tried was pretty good), they had a few varieties of their Mexican chocolate stout (I didn't try any), and then they had a few wild cards -- a DDH Norwegian Farmhouse, a Schwarzbier, a Kolsch. Overall, I really enjoyed my visit. I'd recommend it.

Solemn Oath unfortunately has become rather stagnant over the last few years. While their Old Order beers can be very good, the "every day" beers they have at the taproom rarely warrant a trip. I go primarily to just see people, and the bartenders are very friendly. With so many new places in the same area, there is better beer to be had in much nicer taprooms.

Go for the beer, it's really good. Bare bones tasting room, no food (unless you catch a food truck), limited seating not a place to spend the afternoon. However the beer IS good and it's a great place to pop in, have a beer or two and go.

Warehouse setup. Small taproom with a view at an ambitious brew house.
L shaped bar seats 20 or so and the rest is sro.
12 pulls for in-house beers with great range and complexity.
Service is prompt, knowledgable, and friendly.
3 beer limit per person, per day. Damn ordinances! Lots of 4 and 6 packs, as well as bombers and growlers to go.

No food, bring your own.

Nice atmosphere and I don't mind the tap room being in the warehouse because it has a great feel. The servers are cool, the music was 90's hip-hip which I can dig. The only thing that will prevent me from coming back is the beers. The only standout and enjoyable beer was their dark saison, a very nice and roasty sipper. Helicopter Johnson was good but man that was a boozy APA. Actually that is why I am giving them a low rating. Every single APA and IPA I had was boozy with no balance whatsoever. I wanted to like this place but that's alright.

Great local brewpub with a nice selection of beers. The interior is quite small and tends to be standing room only during busier times. Nice open view of the brewery from the pub inside.
