Project Apollo - A Collaborative Celebration

July 20th marks the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing - a feat only made possible by the hard work and determination of thousands of men and women. To celebrate this crowning collaborative achievement, Solemn Oath invited us to be part of a collaborative brewing project. Solemn Oath’s Project Apollo brought together the Adler Planetarium, Binny’s, Omega Yeast, Country Malt Group and Hopsteiner – resulting in a bright and juicy IPA, with a portion of proceeds benefiting educational programs at Adler. We’re excited to offer this first edition of Project Apollo, the terrestrial test drive that precedes an ambitious goal – a batch brewed with ingredients that were sent to the stratosphere. The first high altitude balloon flight met with unrecoverable splash down in Lake Michigan. Undaunted, the mission continues, and once a successful flight and recovery is achieved, look for the celebratory launch of Vol. 2.

A Pair of Meads You Don’t Want To Miss

Made like wine, yet often championed by fans of craft beer – mead remains an underappreciated and misunderstood beverage that has yet to have its day. At its simplest, mead is made by fermenting honey, but many of the finest meads artfully weave fruits, nuts and spices into one complex tapestry of flavors. Misbeehavin’ Meads is based out of Valparaiso Indiana and they’re making some of the most deliciously innovative meads we’ve ever tasted. We’re excited to present this inaugural batch and look forward to their next creative concoction.

A Toast To Independence

Stone has never been afraid to speak their mind. This staunchly independent brewery is famous for IPAs and they want you to drink them fresh! In 2012, they introduced Enjoy By IPA – a massive DIPA that’s dry hopped with a ludicrous amount of hops. After vigorous trials of R&D, they determined this beer was at its best within 37 days of release. As a result, they’ve placed the Enjoy By date loud and proud across the front of the can. This Unfiltered batch offers a slightly softer and rounder mouthfeel - just make sure to enjoy by Independence Day.

Mango and tangerine on the nose, followed by bright pineapple on the palate and tangy passion fruit on the finish.

Odell Colorado Lager

Odell Colorado Lager

As craft breweries begin to experiment with lagers, many go the pilsner route. Odell’s Colorado Lager marries the dryness of a pilsner with the heft of a helles.
