Visited during the BBF 2011. The ambience surrounding the mill is very nice. Very rustic and true to Bodegravenís rural setting. The beer selection was really excellent. Of course there were lots of specialties from the different breweries attending the Beer Festival, but the other stuff was also impressive. Of course a good selection of De Molen beers, but also Danish (I bought my long-time want Amager MurpHill), Belgians like Struise and Westvleteren, a good selection of American beers. Good policy on their Alesmith IPAís - only one on the shelf and the others in a dark and cold basement so they werenít exposed to heat or sunlight. Good one. The De Molen and Belgian beers were decently priced, although some of the Americans and especially the LoverBeers were high, even in comparison to Danish standards. But a really cool store overall.

To start of, the ambience, just great.
Full stacked bottle shop, nice restaurant, lots of wood, direct view of the brewery, all very open and accessible. Nice. Had some beers from tap, very helpful staff tried to explain umami to me by a various array of sauces and other ingredients from the kitchen. Much appreciated! Then the shop, itís well packed with awesome beers at fair prices. Must visit more often.

Amazing beer shop with beers that are quite hard to get in NL. Maybe itís a little bit expensive, but itís almost imposible to compare the prices of these beers to other stores.
Great variety. Some beer are a bit too exposed to sunlight, standing directly in front of the window.
Visited during the festival so some of the staff were temporary volunteers. Iíve heard some of the staff working there on regular days doesnít know too much about the beers. Everyone kept cool even though it was quite a busy day. The place looks nice and authentic. If it was closer to my home i would visit it more often. Be sure to bring enough money because itís so hard to pick. A true candystore for beerlovers.

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

Iím very sad to write this review. This place has changed so much over the years. I remember the first time I was there some years ago it was an amazing experience. The crew was very friendly, ambitious and knowledgeable about the brewery. I remember Menno was there and he even gave me a private tour through the brewery, while he was teaching one of his staff to do the guided tour. Also we got some great tasters and went home with some regular brews but also some special brews (which I think is something you might expect when visiting a brewery). Now sadly this place has changed in a very negative way... Staff is not friendly at all, they donít seem to care about what they sell, they are only interested in you if you want to buy things, the atmosphere is below freezing temperature and the shop, although offering a lot of nice beers from abroad, doesnít offer anything special from De Molen beers. Sad sad sad I wonít go back anytime soon (not that anyone cares about that ;) )

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.
