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.

Place rating number 800.

Visited September 2012 for the Borefts festival.

The festival was awesome, though a bit overwhelming, and part of that festival was at hte brewery and not the restaurant. 1 euro per token and well over a hundred beers to try. It was ridiculous. After we tapped out (80 or 90 ticks) we went into the restaurant to check it out and to go up into the windmill. It’s really neat that you climb up into it and look out over the water. The gift shop is nice too since you can buy bottles with dinner, and I think to go but I wasn’t overly interested in hauling more bottles home. I saw some Westvleteren 8 in the corner that was presumably for sale but I didn’t check. The service was great the whole day and not just at the festival. I would definitely come back if in the area.

Comfy spot with a nice indoor and outdoor area. Staffed by many beer geeks, but although knowledge was there service was only OK. Maybe this is how it is in Holland, but waiting with an empty glass is just not right. Big selection and you can drink any bottle from the shop. Corkage is a bit higher though. Taster pours and wifi make this easier for tickers. Food was decent.

Really cool little restaurant/bar area and shop. Definitely something cool about hanging out in a windmill (definitely recommend going up to the top). Nice selection of bottles from all over the world and friendly service. Definitely a small place, though.

Boudicca  (1231) London, England | October 12, 2011| Updated October 11, 2013
Attended the third, fourth and fifth Borefts Beer Festivals – a “Who’s Who” of the high quality beer world in Europe (with Jester King, an American brewery, included in 2012) and a must visit festival where you know that whatever you choose to taste it’s going to be good. It was difficult to get an impression of what De Molen is like under normal circumstances but then Menno also kindly hosted the grand tasting for the RBESG in 2013 and we ate in an upstairs room at the mill, which is a stone’s throw away from the new brewery. It was interesting to see the place when it’s not Borefts time. The dining area downstairs seems quite formal but the bar staff were friendly and the patio outside is a nice place to relax with a good beer or two. (Last visited 28 September 2013).

Loz and I visited here 30-10-09 for their first beer festival and stayed in the camper at the second location just down the road. Really enjoyable place and despite the size an incredibly well stocked little beer shop with some absolute winners from some of the best brewers in Europe and further afield. It was difficult to get a really good feel for the place owing to it being the day of the beer festival, but all of the staff were very friendly and their own beer were as usual very good. Quite easy to find and well situated for an easy excursion if one is in Amsterdam or Utrecht as it really wasn’t that far at all.

Popped by after day one of Borefts 2013 so experienced this venue on an atypical night. The place was packed as you’d imagine but they had staffed up well and we only waited around a minute to be served. 7 or 8 De Molen beers on tap. As you probably know the place is situated below a windmill and we ventured outside to sit in the patio garden beneath its sails. great venue a must visit if in the area.

Visited during Borefts 2012. The bottle shop is certainly exceptional, with a wonderful range of beers from around the world. The De Molen selection is, not surprisingly, excellent. The prices can be pretty high, especially for some of the more obscure American stuff. De Molen’s beers, funilly enough, can be a bit more expensive than you would find them at other bottle shops (e.g. De Bierkoning), but only a little bit. It’s hard for me to say if I would journey here when the festival isn’t going on (Bodegraven isn’t exactly a must-visit town, aside from De Molen), but I’ll happily return for Borefts. For people who don’t want to venture to Bodegraven, you can pick up lots of great De Molen beers in and around Amsterdam.

rosenbergh  (741) Tampere, Finland | September 25, 2011
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.
