Great little brewpub, likely to expand a bit when the brewkit moves across the road. Excellent beer, great quality food selection. Prices in the shop are very much on the high side, especially for their own brands, but worth it for an occasional treat.

Simply amazing Dutch brewery with a world class selection of there own beers, a small but well stocked beer store and host of the yearly Borefts beer festival - the best I’ve been to. Don’t miss it!

Very small brewery in Bodegraven a coulple of trainrides from Amsterdam.
Nice selection of beer, but prices is a couple of euros more than in A.
The pub and restaurant was closed when we where there, so double check availability before you go.
Well worth a trip.

Visited on a Saturday in November 2010.
About one hour by train from Amsterdam, with one change of trains. Around five minutes walk from the train station in Bodegraven.
Unfortunately, the bar was a chartered during my visit but the beer shop was excellent although some of the beers were cheaper in Amsterdam.
Did eat a simple lunch, which was good. Very friendly service both in the dining room as in the beer shop.
Would love to visit again when the bar is open.

Been here twice for Borefts 1 and 2. Nice little town (bodegraven) and this a picturesque windmill on the canal. Inside it’s a sprawling brewery with a functional wind driven malt delivery system! The beer shop is well stocked indeed but tiny and gets rammed at festival time. The food is very tasty and of a high standard. The range of beers on at the festival is not huge but is totally world class. It’s a great characterful place and if you visit outside fest time you still have great De Molen beers available and the beer shop. Very highly recommended. Avoid staying at the Tulip Inn in Bodegraven if you can. It’s clean and comfortable but very over priced and the few staff they have can be slow and in the restaurant - gruff!

A very nice historical, renovated, place, with a restaurant, bar and great beershop.
The restaurant/bar is a good place to have some local food/diner and to taste the beers of De Molen.
The beer shop is an extra with some of the finest beers available.
Located next to the canal of Bodegraven, De Molen does keep it’s look as a historical place.
Must admit that I have only been here on BBF’10, but planning to come back soon and buy some more beautiful beers and have a good diner!

Sure the best brew pub in Holland and one of the most interesting in Europe. Lovely place where spend time tasting beers (taps or bottles by De Molen of course) and eating good food

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.
