Boudicca  (1107) London, England | October 12, 2011| Updated October 11, 2013
Attended the third, fourth and fifth Borefts Beer Festivals – a “Who’s Who” of the high quality beer world in Europe (with Jester King, an American brewery, included in 2012) and a must visit festival where you know that whatever you choose to taste it’s going to be good. It was difficult to get an impression of what De Molen is like under normal circumstances but then Menno also kindly hosted the grand tasting for the RBESG in 2013 and we ate in an upstairs room at the mill, which is a stone’s throw away from the new brewery. It was interesting to see the place when it’s not Borefts time. The dining area downstairs seems quite formal but the bar staff were friendly and the patio outside is a nice place to relax with a good beer or two. (Last visited 28 September 2013).

Visited during Borefts BF 2013, had the beerdinner there. Excellent service, the food was also good but a little bit expensive. We had also very good beers brewed specially for the dinner.

Abio  (51) Waasland, Belgium | February 24, 2010| Updated March 4, 2012
Old: Very small brewery, but they where brewing, and the smell was excellent. Then got to taste 2 beers at the bar. The shop is very small, but they have some beers of different country’s. Beers that I didn’t ever see in any shop here, so i bought like a dozen of beers to taste. Edit:Had to change this review, and give some more points after the excellent beerfestival we had. Edit 2: Had to decrease a bit. Prices seems to rise, and we were a bit disappointed cause some little thing... And the shop is in the meanwhile bigger then the first time I was there.Still a very good selection also ofcourse.

erickok  (233) Leuven, Belgium | May 4, 2010| Updated November 10, 2012
Did a ’tour’/tasting with a group of friends here. Perfect atmosphere to taste beer here. Beer offerings obviously based on their own brews. The little shop has high-rated imports as well, which can be expensive though. The restaurant serves well-prepared and tasty dishes that go well with their brews. Happy to let you visit their beer shop even after dinner.

Suddenly in the middle of a dutch village , a windmill comes into your view, the place feels warm rustic and not overly decorated, you can see the brewery from the dining area. The brewer and and chef were very talktive and we had a friendly chat, they served and explained evey thing that was on tap. I did not try the food, but the menu looks like a godd partner to the excellent beer. Very much hope to come here again.

The building needs work, though it too has great potential. The bottle shop is mind-boggling in its quality and rare selections. Would have wished for a couple more beers on tap in the restaurant. Anyhow, it is one of the best places to go in the country.

Nice decor to this place. the have a nice outside patio and an inside that is very rustic and has a nice ambiance. The service is a little slow to north american standards but that seemed to be a typical european service here. Definitely a premier stop for any beer lover. They do serve samples of the beers which was quite nice. Had a very nice time here. Recommend a stop. Also the chicken club was really good. Very unique if you ask me. The bottle shop here is very nice too. Lots of selection of their beers and some american craft. Also saw the westy 12 here

Based on three different visits during Borefts. The food was OK when we ate at the mill, but the dinner felt a bit pricey. The beer list when we were there was really nice. Will try to visit one day without the festival

Amazing beer shop with beers that are quite hard to get in NL. Maybe it’s a little bit expensive, but it’s 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. I’ve heard some of the staff working there on regular days doesn’t 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 it’s so hard to pick. A true candystore for beerlovers.

phredrik  (31) Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), Denmark | October 4, 2011
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.
