EXPERIMENTS WITH JAPANESE KNOTWEED
26-05-2024

At the invitation of Mediamatic, our head brewer Sander Nederveen has been experimenting with trying to concoct something out of Japanese knotweed.

In The Netherlands, the Japanese knotweed is an incredibly invasive plant species. It proliferates wildly across our country, suffocating all planting that surrounds it, and because of its large underground network of roots it is very hard to eradicate.

Every spring, Mediamatic organises a festival around Japanese knotweed to explore its positive properties, including its surprising edibility. For this event Sander picked some knotweed, squeezed all the juice out with a roller press, and made a drinkable juice and syrup.

On Friday, Sander together with artist Henriette Waal will take out their juicer once again for a workshop you can join. And in the afternoon there is a special tasting with some experimental Knotweed-infused beer.

SANDER’S LIBRARY OF DUSTY BEERS
11-04-2024

Because we’re moving soon we’re cleaning out our old archive, and Oedipus founder and head brewer Sander Nederveen found some really special things to share with you :)) Some of which may or may not have expired many moons ago. Still worth a try!

You can find Sander’s Library at the special bar between 17:00 and 19:00, this Saturday 13 April.

p.s. RIP spidey

COCOBOLO AT THE TAPROOM FAREWELL PARTY LIVE
11-04-2024

Imagine a band that makes images that become songs that become stories that become movies. A band that moves through a myriad of backdrops and colours takes you from one adventure into another, running wild with your imagination until you are happy and exhausted.

That band is Cocobolo.

At our Taproom Farewell Party on 13 April they play at 17:30. Come run with us.

THE HOMESICK AT  TAPROOM FAREWELL PARTY LIVE
04-04-2024

Yeehaa. Whenever we plan an event and think, ahhh what would be a nice band to book, we somewhat jokingly say that in any case, the best band to ask is always *The Homesick* And now here they are.

These Groningen weirdos fuse their post-punk rhythms with melodic whimsical pop and somehow only make great songs. Whatever instruments they touch, and they touch quite a few, together they are always unmistakably, The Homesick.

For our Taproom Farewell Party on 13 April, they have a late shift and start at 23:45. Because this night, they come to dance.

NOT BEFORE WE SAY GOODBYE
29-03-2024

The time has come. We are saying farewell to our home at Gedempt Hamerkanaal 85 to set course to a new destination.


For the past ten years GH85 has been the heart of our operation. It’s where we have created, learned, matured, failed and flourished. It has truly been a blast, and of course we want to give it a proper sendoff.

On Saturday 13 April, we will celebrate in the long night of cheerstears & beers, and we would love for you to all be there.

We have a full night of fun planned. Our brewers will dust off things from the archive at the Studio Beer Bar for some awesome trips down memory lane.

There will be live music by three amazing bands: weirdopoppers The Homesick, Cumbia heroes La Banda Fantastica and psychyrockers Cocobolo.

There is food by The Beef Chief, who else, also revisiting some classics,
and you will see many familiar faces in the 
DJ booth!

Free entry, bring your friends :))

DREAMING OF A GOOD HARVEST

ϟ ϟ ϟ REMIX ϟ ϟ ϟ
21-03-2024

In the meantime, the season turned to Spring and we at Oedipus are too hyped for release of the all-round staff favourite: Remix – our big tasty Keller Bier.

Our spring seasonal Remix is a classic beer in a colourful Oedipus jacket. Just like a musical remix, this beer offers a twist to a traditional style. In this case, the German Keller Bier. Remix is a modern, unfiltered lager with subtle floral and spicy hop aromas and a malty body. The beer is refermented with a young actively fermenting beer, and has been bottled a while ago, waiting patiently for its perfectly timed comeback. Which is now!

Leading up to the Remix release, our colour & design studio has been reimagining the beer label and added a new holographic dimension to the design, well fitted for this beer. It’s not fizzy, fuzzy or fussy. But it 𝘪𝘴 shiny & delish.

Last week we had a little family party for the release because Remix is best drunk fresh and in good company.

To celebrate we had a love parade with our team in their new Craft Space suits. Also marking the impending move of our brewery and taproom. We walked from our soon-to-be-headquarters back to the taproom in a colourful dance procession, annoying many of our neighbours. But all in good spirits.

Remix is our spring seasonal, available for only three months, so get it while you can.

ENTERING THE CRAFT SPACE
14-02-2024

The big news of the year 02024 is that the Oedipus Spacecraft will soon set course to the Oedipus Craft Space. Yes yes, we are moving. If that makes you wonder whether you should start saving up for a spacesuit, and if you would even look good in orange: the answers are yes and you’ll look fabulous.

Our current digs at Gedempt Hamerkanaal 85 have served us well over the past 10 years (!), but with the expansion of the brewery, our beer portfolio and our human team, we have come to outgrow it. A large part of our operation has already been managed from the new location for a while, and we just started missing each other too much. It’s time to reunite.

Take off is planned for the end of April*, and landing shortly after. But like a trip to the International Space Station may take either six hours or three days, it’s all dependent on the weather

*Any and all information presented here is subject to change

Where we’ll be landing however, we do know. The Oedipus Craft Space ~ just up the street from the present brewery and taproom, where we have found the space we need to bring everyone and everything we love together.

It’s big lucky that we’re able to stay in the same area in Amsterdam Noord. This is where we grew up as a brewery, and have made some great friends with our neighbours such as Skatecafé, Fanny FreytagEuropizza & Bar BeneluxClub ParadiseQubaCoba and the Green Viper guy.

We are currently in the midst of renovating the building, stuffing the space with all our hopes and dreams. Dreams like a big brewery that is closely connected to the taproom and terrace, a labyrinth of barrels for the wild side, a small brew kit we can use for taproom-exclusive experiments, colourful studios and workshops for our creatives, a recording studio and live music stage, and the world’s first bottling linedance. This and many more things will be crossed off our wish list. We truly cannot wait to show it all to you.

However, patience is key…  Just bear with us through the noise for now, and when we have more to tell, you will be the first to know.
