Visited during the BBF 2011. The ambience surrounding the mill is very nice. Very rustic and true to Bodegraven’s 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 IPA’s - only one on the shelf and the others in a dark and cold basement so they weren’t 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.

I’m 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 don’t 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, doesn’t offer anything special from De Molen beers. Sad sad sad I won’t 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.

From April 2011 review
Peter Paul & Jose were fantastic hosts. Food was tasty and very reasonable. We didn’t have a big look around but the drive in made Bodegraven look like a clean and beautiful town. We were debating stopping here on our way from Amsterdam to Belgium for the weekend. So glad we decided to take the time. We planned on lunch, a couple beers and a look in the bottle shop. A couple hours later and I left with a box full of goodies. We were there shortly after opening so were able to chat them up for quite a while. Bottles may be a bit high but they have plenty of unique offerings...sometimes you have to pay to play, right? they are building a new brewery 200 meters down the road so shouldn’t really affect the set up. Going to start with viewing days for the new brewery I believe next week. Although, I hope they leave remnants from the old brewery because people need to see the small set up that they run with. It’s impressive in how small it is. A great way to start a beer-cation! Bring bottles to share with Peter Paul.

Beer shop has a good, but variable range. Relatively expensive. Restaurant is nice, but food average. Service friendly, but slow.
