Had the privs (that’s a new hip way of shortening the word privilege for no reason) of hanging with the Solemn Oath crew, along with my friend Nicole from Malteurop, while they whipped up their version of Things We Don’t Say. I felt like a spy in the house of amazing beers from amazing humans.
Rumor has it there is a top secret hop addition to their SOB TWDS IPA recipe.
Unfortunately, I promised I wouldn’t tell you directly. Thankfully, I’m writing this with my thumbs and Ryan is scheduling and posting it so this is totally indirectly telling you that THEY ADDED CITRA. HOLY SHIT LET US WORSHIP AT THY ALTAR OF FUCK YEAH CITRA!
While talking about random shit like a handful of chatty cathys, we got to sample through an array of amazing beers and seltzers that each blew my shirt off. Their new Run The Jewels collab seltzer is a beautiful pink color AND IT SLAPS, as the kids say. And their Motorcycle Socks pale ale was fresh off the canning line and stupid hoppy light perfballs (which it says so right on the can, I swear).
I love these people. And their beers smell fucking amazing. Like, I kept snorting their pineapple upside down cake Liquid Love collab because it NO SHIT smelled how it tasted and it tasted like FUCKING PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE.
Remember when you were a kid and you loved the smell of coffee and then it tasted like cardboard taint?
I don’t know why I brought that up, but ALL OF THE Solemn Oath beers I smelled and licked on today were skrait MONEY.
Super thankful these folks exist. - Joel
