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.

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 had kunch there twice and the food was pretty good. Obviously they had some of their excellent beers on tap. The little shop that is connected to the restaurant has An wide selection of rare European craft beers. But these guys know they are top of the bill and their prices reflect that.

What can one say about this place. Home of one of Europe’s best brewers and probably my favourite European brewery. Located in a lovely little town, an east train ride from Amsterdam. Wonderful building with a working Mill. Cracking little shop, if a little over priced at times. Would love to get here outwith the main festival (but theres only so much time) Still during festival food great(and there mass catering) range is amazing but its clear that normally the range is still pretty impressive. All told worth a visit anytime your in Amsterdam or even Holand

Visited several times. Very cosy place, very nice way to use an old mill, placed next to one of many canals in Netherlands ;-). Easy to find and parking close by. They do beers both on tap and in bottles, served in good condition. Great food as well, is a must visit place if in Netherland.

Visited in 2011. They have moved the brewery to another location down the street. Nice place though, cozy, friendly staff and nice selection of beers.

Visited during RBESG 2013. Interior is really beautiful, lovely, lots of great dark wood. Beautiful place. Quite friendly & great service. +/- 10 or beers on tap. Majority of them De Molen, great shape & one very good guest tap. Didn’t check out the bottles. Prices for beers were much like the shop, exaggerated in my opinions. The most I have probably paid for beers like this on draft & this concerns beers they brew themselves. Things should be cheaper, some of the highest if not the highest tap prices I have ever seen. Didn’t eat stuff of the menu but they made some food for us which was very nicely priced & very yummy. Tried some stuff also during Borefts, also quite delicious.

Nice place to find amazing beer. I went to De Molen for the 4th Borefts Beers Festival. The place is really nice and it’s a pleasure to drink a beer there. Selection is also great and you can buy beers at the shop.

Quick lunch and taking the opportunity to re-stock on some great beers. I just love their selection and it is still growing.
