Oedipus Brewery & Tap Room

Brewery in Amsterdam Noord

Oedipus began with four friends trying out some experimental brewing methods, and its bright-labelled bottles are now an Amsterdam institution. This funky warehouse space is a key Noord hang-out, with outdoor seating lit by coloured fairy lights. Immerse yourself in some Oedipus history by sampling Mannenliefde 'Men Love', their first-ever beer, still going strong (not too strong, at 6%).
