Even though Solemn Oath Brewery has only been making beer for a year, but they got bored and decided to launch a lifestyle brand by the name of Sover. The brand follows the same philosophy of the brewery - utilize quality, creativity, simplicity and design in the new line that starts with clothing. Check out the duds and drink some beer at the release party on Friday from 1-6 PM at The Garage.
