A nice brewpub in an absolutely beautiful building. A nice patio as well. Lots of beers on draft. Very kind personnel, reasonably knowledgeable. The menu in the restaurant isnít very extensive, but sufficient. The quality of the food is pretty good; to my surprise the vegetarian dish was the best and the cheapest. Beer-food pairings are suggested for every dish, and i must say it generally works out very well. It does tend to get a little beer warm in the restaurant, which is on the 2nd floor. Nice detail: when ordering a glass of bottled beer they serve it from from 0.7 bottles (just like wine) since they believe it tastes better. Their always-increasing selection of beers is diverse, generally quite good and mostly very original (such as the gruit-beer). Taken together: a great place!

Technicaly it is a brewpub, but that would be a to simple statement. The Jopenbeers are brewed here, but it is much more. The place is a church, not just the building but it also is a shrine for Craft beer. They serve their own beers and some guestbeers (the staff told me they want to increase guestbeer on bottels). The restaurant is on the first floor and serves a good beer food combination. Next to that they tend to arrange masterclasses of beer in combination with food as cheese, chocolate and oysters. A real church for beer, love coming there.

Wow, what a place. The firts time you enter this church, you will be flabbergasted! The view of the 2 brew kettles is stunning. Find tyourself a place and tast several beers (they have actually small tasting glasses) before yout try the beer/food pairings in the restaurant. Not just the standard breweryfood, but sophisticated dishes.

Excellent pub which is located in an old church in which they also brew the famous Jopenbeer. Itís a need and tidy place with great ambiance and you are sitting amongst the brew-cattleís.

Nice location in the centre of Haarlem. The whole thing is located in a church as the name already suggests. Really nice atmosphere, good staff. About 12 own beers on tap and one guest tap. Didnít had a meal there, but just some cheese and saaucages. Bit expensive.

Beautiful old church renovated into a large brewpub. Lovely interior (except for the carpets on the ceiling). Spacious, big bunk-tables. A lot of their own beers on tap, which is exactly what you want in a brewpub. Food is a bit pricy: a couple of pieces of mediocre cheese or sausage cost 6.50 euro, thatís a whole lot of cash. Atmosphere was great, people of various standards and ages around. Quick service, we did not have to wave around to grab the attention of servants. Thatís a rarity these days in Holland, so bonuspoints for that.

I do like the beers they brew. Nevertheless I do not like this place, ok its worth a visit. And itís good to have a drink or two, but do not eat here. Sorry no really, unless you want to empty your wallet and let that spoil your visit. Staff does not really have any beer knowledge, just the standaard brochure info about the jopen beers is drilled into their, pretty blond, heads. They have little or no clue about food pairing, arguments like "we paired this beer cause we have not been able to pair it with any of our other dishes and we didnít want it to feel left out" are cute...but not reallt usefull. Been here twice, and probably wonít be coming back foodwise. But will come back for a nice Jopen beer however.

The brewery, restaurant, pub, bar, tasting room are all inside a renovated/refurbished old church. Excellent atmosphere, visitors of all ages and gender coming together to enjoy great awarded beers. Michael Jackson (the English beer legend) spoke highly of Jopen beers. Food also on high level. Especially Friday and Saturday evenings are fully loaded with people. Jopen beers is poured during lotís of Dutch beer festivals, like the yearly Bock Beer Fetsival in Amsterdam. Last year 1st price with their Jopen Bockbeer.
