Chicago craft brewer Solemn Oath Brewery is to venture out of its home state for the first time with a distribution deal in Wisconsin.

The agreement, which starts in the Spring, will see Solemn Oath's labels available in Milwaukee and Madison on draught, distributor Wirtz Beverage Wisconsin said last week. No financial details have been disclosed.

“It’s an important partnership for both of us, so a lot of planning is underway to support the endeavour for the long-term,” a Wirtz spokesperson said. “We think we can add real value to the category and our customers.”

Wirtz Beverage Wisconsin is part of the Wirtz Beverage Group, which this week signed a deal with Diageo to be its exclusive national broker for beer, wine, spirits and RTDs in Canada.
