Visited around the time of the Boerefts beer festival, my favorite festival on the planet at the moment. Extensive tasting menu, delicious food. Bottle shop has a good selection, including some rarities and a bunch of American stuff from Lost Abbey and elsewhere. Mandatory beer stop, even if you must go out of your way.

Visited during Borefts 2012. The bottle shop is certainly exceptional, with a wonderful range of beers from around the world. The De Molen selection is, not surprisingly, excellent. The prices can be pretty high, especially for some of the more obscure American stuff. De Molenís beers, funilly enough, can be a bit more expensive than you would find them at other bottle shops (e.g. De Bierkoning), but only a little bit. Itís hard for me to say if I would journey here when the festival isnít going on (Bodegraven isnít exactly a must-visit town, aside from De Molen), but Iíll happily return for Borefts. For people who donít want to venture to Bodegraven, you can pick up lots of great De Molen beers in and around Amsterdam.

Really cool little restaurant/bar area and shop. Definitely something cool about hanging out in a windmill (definitely recommend going up to the top). Nice selection of bottles from all over the world and friendly service. Definitely a small place, though.

Attended the third and fourth Borefts Beer Festivals Ė a ďWhoís WhoĒ of the high quality beer world in Europe (with Jester King, an American brewery, included this year) and a must visit festival where you know that whatever you choose to taste itís going to be good. The festival was on two sites just a stoneís throw apart from each other - the old mill, which has the restaurant built around it, and the new brewery. It was difficult to get an impression of what itís like under normal circumstances, so I canít really score it fairly from these visits but have a perfect excuse for having to go back as soon as possible!

Loz and I visited here 30-10-09 for their first beer festival and stayed in the camper at the second location just down the road. Really enjoyable place and despite the size an incredibly well stocked little beer shop with some absolute winners from some of the best brewers in Europe and further afield. It was difficult to get a really good feel for the place owing to it being the day of the beer festival, but all of the staff were very friendly and their own beer were as usual very good. Quite easy to find and well situated for an easy excursion if one is in Amsterdam or Utrecht as it really wasnít that far at all.

The building needs work, though it too has great potential. The bottle shop is mind-boggling in its quality and rare selections. Would have wished for a couple more beers on tap in the restaurant. Anyhow, it is one of the best places to go in the country.

Only a cheap and short train ride away from Amsterdam (30 to 45 minutes?), visiting De Molen is a must if you spend more than one day in Amsterdam. The little quiet and apparently conservative village where De Molen is located is such a change of pace from the extra-liberal Amsterdam that it is almost like youíre in another country. The pub is a five minute walk from the gas station and is truly charming. As expected built in a windmill structure. Old, well-restored and inviting. A few tables on the side offers a front patio for less than 10 people. The inside is divided in two rooms, one is more pub and one more restaurant, and it can accommodate approximately 75 people. There was 6 beers on tap, all in perfect shape (unlike their bottles that often suffer carbonation issues) and all very good. Food is not elaborated but it is original and also very good, this is not your burger and fries pub. Also letís not forget the Bottle Shop on your left when you walk in. Quite small but offers a surprisingly good selection, a lot more than just De Molen beers. I even bought there a rare Italian Saison (Toccalmatto Sibilla) because Iím a saison-whore. And also I wrote to the store a month before I came to put limited beers aside for me and when I got there my rare beers were there waiting for me. Staff couldnít be more friendly and knowledgeable. If you canít tell, I really loved that place. A must.

6 taps (all their own brews). Quite staggering bottle selection of De Molen and other rarities (DK/IT/NL/BE/US). We were the first visitors on Sunday 1pm. Some people came later for lunch. Excellent service. And their beer shop has just incredible selection of best brew from Europe and USA. A must.

Fucking awesome place with a stellar tap list, as well as a sweet selection in the bottle shop. My uncle and I both enjoyed a Toasty (sp?) which is basically a glorified grilled cheese sandwich and it was fucking awesome. Service was kind of poor but all of the employees were very nice.
