Only a cheap and short train ride away from Amsterdam (30 to 45 minutes?), visiting De Molen is a must if you spend more than one day in Amsterdam. The little quiet and apparently conservative village where De Molen is located is such a change of pace from the extra-liberal Amsterdam that it is almost like youíre in another country. The pub is a five minute walk from the gas station and is truly charming. As expected built in a windmill structure. Old, well-restored and inviting. A few tables on the side offers a front patio for less than 10 people. The inside is divided in two rooms, one is more pub and one more restaurant, and it can accommodate approximately 75 people. There was 6 beers on tap, all in perfect shape (unlike their bottles that often suffer carbonation issues) and all very good. Food is not elaborated but it is original and also very good, this is not your burger and fries pub. Also letís not forget the Bottle Shop on your left when you walk in. Quite small but offers a surprisingly good selection, a lot more than just De Molen beers. I even bought there a rare Italian Saison (Toccalmatto Sibilla) because Iím a saison-whore. And also I wrote to the store a month before I came to put limited beers aside for me and when I got there my rare beers were there waiting for me. Staff couldnít be more friendly and knowledgeable. If you canít tell, I really loved that place. A must.

6 taps (all their own brews). Quite staggering bottle selection of De Molen and other rarities (DK/IT/NL/BE/US). We were the first visitors on Sunday 1pm. Some people came later for lunch. Excellent service. And their beer shop has just incredible selection of best brew from Europe and USA. A must.

Fucking awesome place with a stellar tap list, as well as a sweet selection in the bottle shop. My uncle and I both enjoyed a Toasty (sp?) which is basically a glorified grilled cheese sandwich and it was fucking awesome. Service was kind of poor but all of the employees were very nice.

I visited the bottle shop during Borefts 2012. The shopís small, but manages to cram a few hundred bottles into the space. The selection of De Molen beers is unsuprisingly large and impressive. Thereís also a decent amount of rare stuff from the US, Scandanavia, and the UK. I was suprised that a few brewers present at the fest werenít available in the shop. The prices can be a bit high (especially for the De Molen beers, which are cheaper at other shops in the Netherlands), but some of the US stuff was actually pretty good value. Overall, you should definitely have a look if youíre in Bodegraven.

Stopped in here with Seb (sebletitje or you may know him as SeaBass) right when they opened on a Saturday. Great looking place from the outside with a water-way behind it and a hand full of parking spots opposite the front door. The inner space is all wood everywhere with big beams and a nice wood floor. They had like 6 taps on and each were new to me. The staff seemed disorganized maybe due to being very close to opening. When you have their attention theyíre professional and friendly. Wow, the bottle shop is great albeit really small and cramped. I dropped a Euro C-Note to max out my luggage weight for the return trip home. Iíll need two suitcases next time. I look forward to coming back here in a few weeks and hopefully return trips in the future.

Great little brewpub, likely to expand a bit when the brewkit moves across the road. Excellent beer, great quality food selection. Prices in the shop are very much on the high side, especially for their own brands, but worth it for an occasional treat.

Took the train here from Utrecht which was really easy, short walk from the train station. Very cool place, nice bar and dining area, nice and clean. The bartender was nice enough to let me check out the bottle shop after hours and buy a few beers. The bottle shop was awesome, so many great beers from all over the world, great prices on De Molen stuff. Got a table and ordered some beers to start, they have small pour options which is really nice if you want to try lots of beers without getting wasted but they arenít cheap. Ordered some food which sounded great but turned out to be not very good at all, tiny fried fish and tuff, dry goose with overcooked vegetables. Prices were very high on food and pretty high on beer too, especially considering itís their own beer. Come here for the beer and bottle shop, Iíd eat elsewhere though.

Update: November 17th visit.
Yeah, One of three customer eating that day. Great Bierstoverij, I mean seriously, the dish was awesome.
The beer shop was a treasure chest waiting to be opened, a load more bottles than my earlier visit in August.
As always, great draft list and great service.
Nice brewpub located in the very typical Dutch landscape.
Five beers on tap while I visited, and plenty of De Molen beers to get at the store next door. Selection wise, all trhe DeMolen one could want.
Food wise, the lunch menu was nice with regular pub grub and a local touch. Props for the DeMolen beer sausage and DeMolen mustard, just delicious stuff. Sandwhich was nice.
Atmosphere, beautiful surroundings along the small canal, few locals drinking a beer or coffee. Inside is a look at the old mill with little decor. The outside area is the view on the parking lot and a garden store.
Pricewise is very generous for the food as well as the beer on draft that ranged from 2,25 to 5 euros. Beerstore next door has plenty of DeMolen beers for sale that I found to be overpriced if drank at the bar. Some of the other imports are overpriced.

The bar/restaurant is pretty good. The shop is awesome but the prices are on the high side but there are beers here from the best brewers in the world (some very hard to get hold of). Mennoís beers are a must try! There are no bad beers in this shop!
