Studio Oedipus No. 22
The worlds of wine and beer collide in this North Amsterdam collaboration with our
neighbours Chateau. They gave us a few hundred kilos of Macabeu grapes left over from
their wine pressing which we macerated with wild yeasts in our white ale Offline. After a few
months we blended this wine/beer hybrid with Vogelen (our Berliner Weisse) and Offline
aged in Pinot Blanc barrels for nine and three months respectively. The extra time that
Vogelen spent refermenting created deep oaky tones that combine with the grapes, funky
yeast flavour and Offline’s softer, floral notes to produce a balanced fruity brew.
