Munchies is what you have when you feel the need to consume copious amounts of carbohydrates and essential polyunsaturated fatty acids after inhaling the byproduct of the combusting hemp plant. You know. When you high.
But Munchies also illustrates the craving. The craving for different kinds of foods and eating all of the things and tasting all of the tastes. Our Munchies was made in collaboration with the Foodhallen, the first indoor food market in the Netherlands and the perfect place to satisfy those appetites.
As De Foodhallen was one of the first places that provided Oedipus beers, it felt natural to develop their new housebeer together. It’s is a place where foods from all around the world come together – a real jambalaya of cultures, personalities and preferences. The process of creating a beer that would cater to all these tastes was a very social one. Together we tasted and experimented, and in the end it also became a really social beer. While developing the beer we found everyone liked lagers that showed strong hop flavors and aromatics. This resulted in a lager with some toasted and caramelized malts, (dry)hopped with Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic.
Munchies is light, easily drinkable, it pairs great with all the foods and we know for a fact it tastes better in good company! Hmmmmmmmunchies.
