From Oath Brewery:
"It is official. Oath Day Six is coming. Our lights are still on as we approach seventy-two months of having provided you with Solemn Oath beers.

Again this year we'll be setting the garage doors free, opening up as much of our brewery as we possibly can, taking over our parking lot, and throwing one of the strangest and most chill parties the Midwest has to offer. We'll have tons of pouring stations to minimize lines, a massive beer list filled with our most innovative brews, incredible restaurant and food truck partners, and copious collaborators. This year we're featuring a market filled with unique artisans, a live band unlike most anything you've seen, fresh beard trims, and orchestrated disorder of all things Oath.

We thank you for your continued support through the years and we cannot wait to let our hair down and celebrate along with you. We've always taken pride in the fact that through the chaos that is running a brewery, at the end of the day we make a product that brings people together. We hope you'll join us and raise a glass to the continued revolution that is American craft beer.
