Wow, what can I say. The building is stunning; a windmill adapted as a brewery, set in a lovely Dutch town surrounding flat fields. The setting is superb. The shop is excellent. Several interesting top 50 beers here. The service is stunning. Everyone on decks despite being stupidly busy assisting with the military precision movement which is contributing to the best beer festival ever, attentive and knowledgeable staff, eager to assist at great length. The beer range is stunning and mind blowing. Conditioning is perfect and the environment is first class. Must come back and have a meal as recommended in rates. Menno you are setting the standard in The Netherlands. and Europe. .

What can you say, the place is amazing, the food stellar, the beer shop unreal, the service top notch. I wanted to buy some glasses and they said they were sold out, but then gave me some from the behind the bar. Stop what you’re doing and go there.

Beautiful ambiance and very kind staff. Amazing selection of De Molen beers. It was a pity I missed the tour of the brewery.

I can go on and on about how great the service was and how understandning they were towards my wife’s gluten-intolerance or how fantastic their beer selection were or even about the scenery in and aroumd the mill. But instead i will do it the easy way; If you ever have a chance to visit, do it! You won’t regret it.

This is a place worth going out of your way for. We were there at a very slow time and given excellent service by an incredibly friendly staff who knows their beer well. The bottle room is worth a visit on its own and is well-stocked with a few surprising treasures. The beer was reasonably priced, with only two disappointments out of about 15 that we tried (though none of their beer is bad!). The ambience, the service and the extraordinary craft beer makes de Molen an absolute must-see in Holland.

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.

I won’t be able to add much more to the reviews below. Visited during the festival, and the place was excellent. The festival itself was amazingly well organized, all went smoothly. The old brewery looked great, authentic, lots of ambience. The new brewery looked good as well. I really cannot complain about anything here. We had an awesome time.
