A brewery and a distillery
Bar Oorlam was founded in 2018 by Buddelship Brauerei and Filosoof Jenever to showcase their wide range of highly creative products. Beers that stretch from a heavily hopped pilsner and a classical American IPA to Calvados Barrel aged wild ales with apricots and juniper (Seewoatr), Sour rye lagers with rosehip (Man’o Sting) and rice wine lagers on white wine barrels (Jam session). The jenevers contain special botanicals like Jasmin tea (Amber), Hibiscus (Tamar), Roses (Wieke), Hawthorne (Rodante) and lots of hops (Koshka among others). The offer is always different, described beers did probably already run out by the time you read this, in that case we were too busy brewing to update the website. Hence we have always something new and interesting to try.
At Oorlam our focus is on making pairings between beer and jenever. We follow herein the long tradition of kopstootjes (in the Netherlands) and Herrengedeck (in Germany). Every combination brings other things up in both the jenever and the beer. Our knowledgeable bar staff can help you to find a combination perfect for your taste.
Our homey bar has 15 taps and around 50 bottles of beer on offer. Besides the beer from our own Buddelship brewery we also regularly have guest beers on offer from befriended craft breweries. We serve the whole range of Filosoof Jenever including the proof series; a series of experimental ‘one of’-jenevers straight from the test ‘kitchen’. We have a small terrace in the evening sun and serve some self-imported cheeses from the Netherlands and Salami’s from France. And don’t forget to bring home a box of beer and a bottle of jenever afterwards.
The Buddelship Brauerei was founded in 2014 as the first craft brewery in Hamburg by Simon Siemglüss. After travelling the world, getting several brewing degrees and working in China and London he came back to his hometown to found a brewery that made beers both creative and traditional. There is a core range with traditional German Styles and some classics from overseas. But also an IPA series and Barrel aged imperial stouts. But over the years the brewery developed more and more in experimental styles that do not fill out any box. Since 2019 the brewery also started making wild beers.
Filosoof Jenever was founded in 2015 in Amsterdam by Nienke Oostra. After years of researching jenever by not only reading a lot but also visiting most old distilleries she founded her own Jenever distillery. Jenever (in German Genever) is the traditional spirit of the Netherlands. Although once it was the most common spirit in the world, nowadays most people never had a good one, if any at all. The jenevers from Filosoof are experimental, they often use uncommon botanicals and have a very strong malt base. This makes them somewhere between a whisky and a gin, both more modern styles that are actually offspring’s from the traditional Jenever. Filosoof jenever recipes are made very careful, from fermenting with different strains of yeast to picking fresh botanicals
