If you see some rather new funky labels on our beer shelves it's because we have just started stocking Oedipus Beers, fresh from Amsterdam Noord.
Judging by the labels, these guys not only drink some interesting stuff, they probably smoke it too! But anyway, back to the beers. We have a cracking Mango Sour; the Polyamourie, an Indian Pale Ale; Gaia and a Saison; the Mannen Liefde.
Oedipus was founded by four friends and they are all about having fun while making and drinking quality beer at the same time. They "...started brewing beer on pots and pans in one of those too tiny Amsterdam kitchens, playing with colors and silly ideas. From that very first start Oedipus has been about doing things differently, our own way. It’s about fun, taste, energy and doing it together..."
Mannen Liefde is a saison flavoured with lemongrass, Szechuan pepper and Sorachi Ace hops.
Gaia is their interpretation of a West-Coast I.P.A. An amber colored beer with the focus on resiny, piney hop varieties (Cascade, Columbus, Chinook, Centennial and a bit of Amarillo).
Polyamourie is a Mango Sour Ale. This beer is a blend of a Berliner Weiße and a US style Pale Ale. Slightly sour and much tropical fruit flavour and aroma because of the mango and Citra, and Amarillo dry hops.
All are now available in the Vault or in the Wine bar.
