Simply amazing Dutch brewery with a world class selection of there own beers, a small but well stocked beer store and host of the yearly Borefts beer festival - the best I’ve been to. Don’t miss it!

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.

gyllenbock  (265) Stockholm, Sweden | November 23, 2010
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!

Sure the best brew pub in Holland and one of the most interesting in Europe. Lovely place where spend time tasting beers (taps or bottles by De Molen of course) and eating good food

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. .

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.
