    Why is everyone krazy for kimchi?!

    Why is everyone krazy for kimchi?!

    This week we jump into the world of Kimchi: the spicy, tangy and smelly fermented cabbage dish originating from Korea. Only a few years ago it was almost unheard of in Amsterdam, but nowadays everyone’s piling it on everything from burgers to beer. To find out why kimchi is so hot right now (or if it’s a dish best served cold) we met Alex from Oh Na Mi Kimchi. He makes kimchi based on a traditional family recipe, but just like his dad, the inventor of the kimchi hotdog, Alex isn’t afraid to spice things up either. In the second part of the show, we chat to Abel from Funk Gilde. His kimchi krokets are a big hit, but what’s his kimchi homebrew like? Is it a taste of tomorrow, or something that should be thrown straight down the sink?

    The wild side of British beer with Buxton Brewery

    The wild side of British beer with Buxton Brewery

    When you think of these beers, the first country that springs to mind is Belgium, not England. But perhaps it's time to think again, as this style has long (if not strong) roots in the UK. 
    Our first guest is Jeremy Stull, Head of Barrels & Blending Buxton Brewery, who shares his international perspective on the wild side of brewing. 
    Secondly, Jan from Butchers Tears gives a practical lesson in British barrel-aging history via their new version of a classic English beer: Aruspex, an Old Burton Ale.

    The world of colour with Victor Brangolo. Plus, De Soepkeuken Van Lien

    The world of colour with Victor Brangolo. Plus, De Soepkeuken Van Lien

    This week we have not one, but two guests. First up, Victor Brangolo, creator of the visual world that graces Oedipus labels, taprooms and apparently quite a few Tinder profile pics. He discusses how colour can make you feel sexy, thirsty, playful or philosophical. Guest #2 is Lien, the lady making the comfort food the world needs right now: soup, glorious, soup. Her soup is nutritious, sustainable and last, but not least, value for money. Catch it while it’s hot.

    An Introduction to De Bierkoning

    An Introduction to De Bierkoning

    De Bierkoning - the ‘King of Beer’ in English - was the first bottle shop to open in Amsterdam in 1985. There isn’t much about the city or beer that Jos, the owner, hasn’t seen or tasted since then. We invited Jos and Kevin, his young apprentice (well, he’s the manager actually), to trace the shop’s 36-year history in 3 beers: from how it started out selling Belgian beers to squatters, how the craft scene grew in the city, all the way to what’s still to be done in the Dutch beer world.

    The Japanese tradition of Koji Making

    The Japanese tradition of Koji Making

    If 2020 was the year of making your own sourdough, then 2021 should be the year you dive into koji. It's the form of fermentation that produces miso, soy sauce, sake - the foundation of Japanese food and drink, some might say. We asked Amsterdam's very own Kojioligist, Marika Groen, to introduce us to the venerable tradition of koji making. Tune in to discover how to make it, use it and if Sander will (or can) make a Koji beer.

    The world of Kaapse Brouwers

    The world of Kaapse Brouwers

    Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Two cities that hate to be in the same sentence together, unless it's to say one is better than the other. But Oedipus and Kaapse Brouwers have been friends for a long time, and as they've just opened a new brewery, it was high time for a visit. We ventured south to investigate the difference between two cities' craft scenes, what influence Rotterdam has on Kaapse, and if their claim to make the best Rotterdam beer in the world is actually true.
