Finally stopped by this place after enjoying their beers for years. Tried to go there one other time years ago and couldn't find it. It is hidden in a warehouse type area. But once you find it you will be glad you did. No food...More

We found the address but had to use a mapping system to figure out this was located in a warehouse behind the main building. This is in an actual working brewery. If you like IPAs and hoppy beers this is your place. I am more...More

I was staying in the area and popped in after work. The place was hopping for Wednesday after work. Good service and and beer selection. I recommend it for an off the beat and path beer stop

The brewery has a bar and table seating. There is a variety of their beers on draft so there is something for beer lovers of all types. They don't accept tips, however, you may donate to a beer for your bartender.

From what I understand this brewery is only 6 years old. The beer was quite good (I had their imperial stout and Belgian triple (which I figure are two great beers to gauge brewing quality). Both were incredibly smooth but had a lot of texture....More

Having visited breweries across the country, Solemn Oath leaves a lot to be desired. The beer is good, but you can buy it in most Chicago liquor stores. I won’t make another trip because it’s a boring spot.

I hadn’t been here in a couple years, and I was happy to see that it was still awesome! I like that they keep the beer selection fresh and mix it up; not too many one one type (i.e. IPA, etc). Looking forward to returning...More

Solemn Oath does have good beer, and there probably aren’t any breweries in the Naperville area that measure up to them. However, they don’t brew the small-batch, experimental, taproom-only stuff like they used to. It seems like all their beer is now brewed for distribution...More

The name may imply to be serious and introspective, but in this case....it is seriously good craft brew. Shout it from the roof top or put your cell phone on all caps and rave about this place. No Solemn words here. Great beer. Cheers.

Yes, the taproom is basic, but they're intentionally located in a warehouse, so that is the expectation. I like it for a change, but don't go there, if you're looking for a nice date night. Instead, look for places that server their beer, like Fire...More
