Visited on july 2015.
Amazing brewpub with small bottleshop - place full of DeMolens beers. Everything is here on one place, including rare pieces of course. Where else is better option to pick De Molen, than by them own self? Nice selection of Belgians, too. Friendly and helpful staff, good prices. I just like this old mill! (and their beers!)

Large brewpub which is easy to find, just look for the windmill. Nice, wooden interior, very cozy, with a view on a small canal and a decent patio outside. Quite large and good taplist with mostly their own beers, quite a few specials available, plus some guest brews which do also not lack quality. Prices are a bit high, even for their own beers, but tasting glasses can be ordered. The staff is usually knowledgeable about what they offer, and quite helpful but actually not overly so. Although the shop was closed on a Sunday, I was allowed to go there on my own and take out the beers I wanted to buy. The offerings there are mainly De Molen beers, but other interesting stuff from the US or Scandinavia can be found as well, this time for rather reasonable prices as far as I can say. Really a great place, one of my favourites of the country so far.

Does suffer from being out of the way, not on a direct public transport route between any of the major cities. But well worth the detour. The renovation work has coincided with the increase in the number of beer taps and hence the guest beers. Quite modern feeling, but sort of homely as well.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in June, the weather was great so I was surprised not to find the place packed, especially considering its situation in a windmill on the banks of a river that passes through Bodegraven. As the De Molen brewery tap (the brewery itself is not far from this original brewery site) there is a great selection of their own beers on tap plus a few guest beers as well. I had the Rasputin, the Hel & Verdoemenis (Imperial Stout) and the Imperial Stout which was brewed in collaboration with Cigar City brewery. All were top notch, strong tasting, full bodied imperial stouts but still with their own unique character. After discussion on our table the Hel & Verdoemenis (the flagship Imperial Stout of De Molen, according to the barman) came out as the best of those we tried. They have a food menu as well but I went there for the beers so didn’t pay much attention but what I saw coming out of the kitchen looked impressive. There is a beer garden as well and of course a small shop with a huge selection of bottles, and a few t-shirts and glasses. Bear in mind that you can find the bottles cheaper in the supermarkets in Holland but obviously the selection is much bigger in the shop and they have limited edition ones as well. Considering De Molen played such an important part in the Dutch beer revolution it’s one of the must visit places for the beer traveller.

I had lunch here and several beers. Also got to buy a lot of De Molen beers in the shop. Super friendly staff managed by MrHangover that also brought us a box of out of date beers to freely pick out beers to bring back home. Great food and super fresh beers. Great place indeed!

Bezocht op een zondagmiddag tijdens presentatie Tsarina Esra Ardbeg. Fantastische locatie sfeervol en zelfs bij drukte kun je je zelf er goed verstaanbaar maken. 20 bier van de tap is niet echt veel, jammer dat er niet ook een flessenkaart gehanteerd wordt. Bediening is vriendelijk en prijzen zijn zeker redelijk te nomen. kom hier zeker terug.

New rating, visited dec 15 - Ok, change of ownership, what shall I say. Tables were occupied by a sort of incrowd. The girl in charge, laughing too loud and not my piece of cake. But 20 taps, great beer, place nicely renovated, food ok, but no longer special. Unfortunately the shop was a disapointment. Much smaller collection. But when you’re in the neighbourhood must visit. Rating before change of ownership: Based on a lot of visits. The place changed of ownership so my rating is ’history’. Loved the ambiance and athmosphere of Eet en Bierlokaal. Friendly service, knowledge of beer, but sometimes slow. Great food, huge fan of the Molentosti and the duck. Last time I visited they served swan, amazing. 10 taps with nice Molen beers and now and than a guest tap for a world class brewery like Beavertown, Struise. Shop was overwhelming. So many high class beers in such a little space. Prices cheap, to ok, to high for hard to find beers in the shop.

Visited during BBF 2015, crowded of people. AMerian beer on tap. I guess how is during the hole year. Cosy place within the mill. Good selection.
