Solemn Oath Brewery will nearly double capacity

SHARE Solemn Oath Brewery will nearly double capacity

Solemn Oath Brewery expects to nearly double its production capacity later this year as part of an expansion underway at the Naperville brewery.

The brewery now has 16,800 square feet of space and is upgrading its brewing and packaging equipment. The new brewing equipment will increase capacity by 94 percent.

“The new brewhouse … is the infrastructure we need to make enough beer to ease our current and expected demand in existing markets for the next several years,” co-founder John Barley wrote on the company’s website.

As part of the project, Solemn Oath plans to begin packaging beer in 12-ounce cans.

Barley says he’ll make one beer available in cans, then quickly add a second, and both will be new to Solemn Oath.

“Unlike our ever-changing draft and bomber offerings, our goal is to make the supply of both canned beers steady and dependable,” he wrote.
