Oedipus Brewery

If you like the style of Mikkeller, you shouldn’t miss out Oedipus Brewery while in Amsterdam!

The Funky Town Place

Oedipus Brewery was found in 2009 by four guys. After a successful crowdfunding event they established their regular brewing place, and settled down in current location in 2015.

Just like any other new brewery, the place was just a warehouse with the logo.

Oedipus Brewery building. Very warehouse like.

Inside the brewery the interior was very much hipster style, featuring a pig painting at bar front, hanging plants, and lots of colorful graffiti.

Really hipster bar front.

Seems like someone is gonna brew some barrel-aged beer.

Guess what are these doors for?

Really cool tap handles.

Just like Mikkeller, Oedipus Brewery did a lot of experimental beers. They also collaborated with lots of other breweries.

This one was Polyamorie, a mango sour ale.

Another cool feature of Oedipus Brewery was its colorful beer labels and funky names.

Sample menu.

The beer label artwork was also reflected on posters.

“God Bless this Unholy Mess”. Well said. A mess indeed.

Really colorful beer cap and beer coaster.

Getting Some Beers

Just like Texels Brewery, I tried to smuggle some beers back to Taiwan. Here were the beers I got:

Mama pale ale

2017-06-30 16.57.33

Their signature beer. A cloudy ale that was not so sweet.

Aqriturismo Belgium Ale

2017-06-30 17.27.39-1

If you had the chance you should definitely try this one. Very unique Chinese herb taste. A collaboration with Labietis of Latvia, they added elderflower, pine shoots and lemon peels into this crazy thing.

Offline Wheat

A Belgium wheat beer. Refreshing but new kind of wheat beer taste to me.

Mannen Liefde Saison (“Men Love”, Lol)

2017-06-24 14.51.35

Another of my favorite, this refreshing saison was spiced up with just a small amount of Szechuan pepper, giving you a hint of numbness without overpowering your tongue.

Panty Stout

2017-07-23 19.28.49

A nice stout. Got everything a stout has with additional floral fragrance. (BTW “Panty” in Dutch means tights/stockings, not underpants…)
