haven’t had anything to eat , but the shop is pretty darn good , prices seem a bit on the high side ( for international brews that is ) but then again they do have to come overseas and the de molen beers itself are good enough for me so way cheaper :) i also like the interior and like the fact that everyone of the staff does seem to enjoy a decent beer , trust me i’ve been to specialized beer pubs and have found out that many of the staff don’t even know the difference between labmic and gueze ....

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

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, it’s well packed with awesome beers at fair prices. Must visit more often.

Stopped through for a beer and got an intimate tasting in the charming little brewpup. The main brewery has moved across the street and what is left is a great restaurant and an awesome little bottle shop. Selection in the bottle shop is amazing for the Netherlands, you are bound to find some rarities in there. I had the stewed rabbit and it was magnificent. Prices are a little high for my taste, but that is pretty much the way it is across the board in the Netherlands anyway. Overall, this is a great place and I highly recommend it.

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.
