I visited the bottle shop during Borefts 2012. The shop’s small, but manages to cram a few hundred bottles into the space. The selection of De Molen beers is unsuprisingly large and impressive. There’s 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 weren’t 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 you’re in Bodegraven.

Great place to have lunch or dinner, both the selection of lunch and dinner meals are broad and varied. The menu is even equipped with a ’what beer to drink with this’ guide. The dishes are named creatively, and some actually involve beer in the process of cooking the dish as well. The service is friendly, not too hasty and very pleasant. The waiters and waitresses know much about beer and are able to tell non-conoisseurs all about their beers. Which brings me to the next point: the beer is excellent. Moderate variety of tap beers and a large variety of bottled beers, from all over the world. Definitely one of my favorite places to go out for dinner!

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).

Visited during Borefts BF 2013, had the beerdinner there. Excellent service, the food was also good but a little bit expensive. We had also very good beers brewed specially for the dinner.

This is the restaurant attached to the shop and it is a great relaxing place. The staff know their beers and they know what to advise. What is sad is that they charge a premium to drink there. I just bought some beers from the shop and I couldn’t drink them and if I ordered them I would have to pay extra. The food was delicious but it was lacking in sides. I wouldn’t come here for the food anyway. Nonetheless, the selection of DeMolen and other beers is impressive and coming here to get some drinks is really a nice option.

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.

A beautiful and cosy restaurant located close to the brewery. The restaurant has a canal view canal and offers some lovely views. The beer list is awesome and so is the food. Do ask for recommendations of food and beer parings.
