We love beer. Did you know that? Well, we do. And one of the industry publications we pour over is Draft Magazine. It’s one of the very best out there. Each year, they name the top beer spots in the USA, and it’s a list we look forward to reading every year.
We couldn’t be happier to tell you that we’ve (once again) earned a spot as one of the 100 Best Beer Bars in the country.

A Solemn Oath Beer Dinner
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
It’s the beer dinner you’ve all been waiting for! We’re teaming up with Solemn Oath Brewery, located right around the corner in good ol’ Naperville. We’ve been into their awesome beers since from the minute they started brewing, so we’re extra excited to give them five lines for their stellar product and devise the perfect dish to pair with each.
If you didn’t buy tickets based on the flyer alone, here’s a sneak peek at which Solemn Oath beers we’re pouring:
Butterfly Flashmob - (Belgian IPA - 7.5%abv) - Copious amounts of piney, citrusy American hops make a light malt sweetness their bitch in this full-flavored Belgian IPA. Aggressive bitterness, massive hop flavor and super fruity Belgian yeast. Now with new hops: Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial, Citra, Mt. Hood.
Combat Marshmallow - (American Double Stout - 8.5%ABV) - Full bodied, black in color. Big roasted malt presence with notes of dark chocolate and coffee balanced by a resinous, piney hop girth. No marshmallows.
Big Pern - (Barrel Aged Belgian Rye Brown)
Interrobang - (Belgian Triple - 9% ABV)
Death By Vikings - (Imperial IPA)
You’ll want to stick around after dinner, because it’s rude to eat and run — but we’re also turning our draft chalkboard into a Midwestern Wonderland, with all lines going to some of our favorite nearby breweries: Solemn Oath Brewery, Three Floyds Brewing, Revolution Brewing, Half Acre Beer Company, Surly Brewing Co., and Off Color Brewing.
Five beers + five courses. Tickets available here (limited quantity)!
