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!

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.

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.

Visited the place at the end of august. What a discovery!
Had the most exquisite beer-dinner. Peter is really a fantastic chef . The chocolate desert with the Molen Hel & Verdoemenis Misto BA on tap is a sensation you can’t imagine… This in combination with the hospitality of Peter’s wife (I think) and the enthusiastic young man and girl, you think: Oh, life can be so good… The little beershop has a nice selection (about 200 ?) of rare (top) Beers, prices are more than fair if you compare them with the shops in Amsterdam. This place is a must!
We went back because of BBF. World class festival with the most excellent athmosphere. Superb organised. Top beers, I think 60 - 70 on tap.
