Chicago Craft Beer Events, November 13-16
We are now into the season of big beer releases: this week it's Perennial Abraxas. And with Black Wednesday and Black Friday loading with events, I've posted previews for those days, which you can find on this blog homepage, or on this page's "right rail." News: Timothy Marshall, founding brewmaster at Solemn Oath Brewery, has departed for warmer climes. This announcement was posted to Solemn Oath's Facebook page:
Since before we opened our doors head brewer Tim Marshall has been at the helm of SOB's beer operations. He has dedicated the last six years towards developing the beers you've grown to love, driving our growth, and serving as a leader at SOB. Next week will be Tim's final with the brewery as he and his family move to Florida for their next adventure. We are grateful to have had the chance to work alongside Tim and proud of everything we have accomplished together. Cheers to Tim, our friend and forever a co-founder of Solemn Oath. You will be missed.
I first knew Tim as head brewer at Rock Bottom Yorktown (Lombard), well before he set out to start his own brewery, which opened in 2012. His penchant for left-of-center brews was in evidence back then (and never would have set well with RB's current corporate brewing policy). Good luck, Tim!
