Very spacious brewpub, brewing installation is still working and in plain sight of the visitors. Very nice, long bar with lots of different taps. Too bad that one third of them was empty. Itís a shame to see that the bartenders didnít knew their beers and even told me to stop asking about it.. wow.. Overall a great pub, love to go there again..

This modern brewpub in the beautiful city of Haarlem has lots of great beers on draught, most of them brewed in the building itself. They serve guest beers too, and some of their own beers are still brewed elsewhere, I was told. This "Jopenkerk" is a former church, which makes it special enough to look around for, well, a few hours - drinking on the bar, of course. This is the most beautiful brewpub I have ever seen. Too expensive, unfortunately. You can drink their beer cheaper in the other pubs in town. The food is not always good.

OK ish brewpub, let down as far as Iím concerned by the fact I only really like the stout from their range. Busy, but modern and not really my preference of a drinking locale.

Big place with a beautiful brewing installation in the middle. Looks awesome. We sat upstairs. Good that you can buy beers by the glass, poured from a large bottle, but they are quite expensive. Large tap selection downstairs. I had a rare entrecote which was neither rare not an entrecote, but still tasty. Food isnít cheap either. The service was fast and our girl was knowledgeable; a big plus. Very nice that they build this and a real quality showcase for craft beer.

An amazing brewpub, converted from an old church into a large modernized two floor area that manages to fit in with the building it was and still feel just right. A good selection of Jopenís beers are available and the food in the upstairs restaurant area is good.

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.
