The brewery is a bit hidden and hard to find. The street address leads you to the main building but they are tucked away on the side.
Service was fantastic. This place is always hopping but they maintain the ability to keep service level high and converse well with patrons. The "Beer for friends" chalkboard is cool. Every time you go in you must read just in case someone left a beer for you there.
The beer is great. Ravaged by Vikings had just come out last time I was there. Great brew! Selection is limited but that is to be expected with a brand new brewery. All offerings I've tried have been above average.
Overall, great clean small place with great service and knowledgeable people.

Solemn Oath is one of my favorite brewery's. There beer is great and everyone working there is very nice. There was a mix of people from younger adults to business type adults. They do have food trucks on the weekend but you are welcome to bring your own food with. It is card for payment only and you do not tip the bar tender, you can buy them a drink as a tip. The way you see all the fermentors and everything that goes on inside the brewery from the bar it kind of makes you feel like a part of it.

Solemn Oath is a bit hard to find considering it's in a building behind another building, so bring your GPS.
The taproom is small and intimate which but feels good. The open floor plan allows you to see the brewery and the goings on inside. The quality of the beers is allows top notch in IMO, so finding something you will enjoy shouldn't be a problem. The service was also top notch. Our bartender was knowledgeable, nice, and seemed to know everyone else in the taproom. The selection of beers was really the only downside. They had 5 on tap with no guest drafts. I would have loved to be able to get a flight if they had 7-10, but o well. All in all this is a cool place to visit, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Atmosphere- Very good, it is set in the middle of a warehouse district so it has a bit of an underground feel to it. The taproom is only separated from the brewery by a waist high wall, you are no more than 15 feet from the fermenters. Not very big, maybe 15 stools at the bar, no other chairs around.
Quality- Solemn Oath makes some good beers and they usually have 5 of their beers on tap at a time.
Service- Very friendly, because it is a smaller place, the service is quick and the bartenders are easygoing.
Selection- Its a taproom so they only have their beers on tap.
Value- Typical price for beers, around $5 or $6 for a pint. Their growler fills are a bit on the expensive side. $20 for a refill, $25 for a new growler and fill.
