From April 2011 review Peter Paul & Jose were fantastic hosts. Food was tasty and very reasonable. We didn’t have a big look around but the drive in made Bodegraven look like a clean and beautiful town. We were debating stopping here on our way from Amsterdam to Belgium for the weekend. So glad we decided to take the time. We planned on lunch, a couple beers and a look in the bottle shop. A couple hours later and I left with a box full of goodies. We were there shortly after opening so were able to chat them up for quite a while. Bottles may be a bit high but they have plenty of unique offerings...sometimes you have to pay to play, right? they are building a new brewery 200 meters down the road so shouldn’t really affect the set up. Going to start with viewing days for the new brewery I believe next week. Although, I hope they leave remnants from the old brewery because people need to see the small set up that they run with. It’s impressive in how small it is. A great way to start a beer-cation! Bring bottles to share with Peter Paul.

Was there last sunday for a tour, for a bachelor party with a theme, wear an hat. Nice cozy environment, good to superior house brews. Nice shop with an amazing selection of beers, notice the bit high prices but they a worth it. Also very good beerfestival in September.

Was there for Boreft beer festival, and it was a very pleasant experience. The place itself is very beautifull. As for the beer shop, it was simply amazing, lots and lots of incredible and impossible to find brews there ... they had Narke, Jolly Pumpkins, De Molen of course etc... Prices were very expensive for europe, but considering the service and selection, it was ok anyway. I had a great time there and will be returning someday.

Stopped in this past summer. Had a wedding party going on so supposed to be closed, but Peter was quite the host and had the chef whip up some steaks and veggies for us (very tasty) and cracked open a few bottles of Weer & Wind and H&V Wild Turkey. Nice bottle shop packed with tasty euro treats and US brews. Prices are decent. A must visit.

Had to make a visit after missing 3rd Borefts Festival due to schedule difficulties. Wow! Maybe not beer drinker’s paradise on its own, but one location in paradise for sure. Wonderful rustic atmosphere, friendly staff, superb beer as is well-known. Excellent high quality beer shop. De Molen beers are presented in a well-deserved self-confident way scratching on boast. Maybe a bit expensive, but you’re exempt from laboriously assembling all that superb stuff from different places. Can’t rate food for a self-evident reason: I didn’t try.

Stopped through for a beer and got an intimate tasting in the charming little brewpup. The main brewery has moved across the street and what is left is a great restaurant and an awesome little bottle shop. Selection in the bottle shop is amazing for the Netherlands, you are bound to find some rarities in there. I had the stewed rabbit and it was magnificent. Prices are a little high for my taste, but that is pretty much the way it is across the board in the Netherlands anyway. Overall, this is a great place and I highly recommend it.

My and a mate spent 6 hours at De Molen, and drank quite a lot of beer. Also we had a nice meal. Spent a lot of dollars in the shop, so all in all, a very nice visit. Will definatly be back.

haven’t had anything to eat , but the shop is pretty darn good , prices seem a bit on the high side ( for international brews that is ) but then again they do have to come overseas and the de molen beers itself are good enough for me so way cheaper :) i also like the interior and like the fact that everyone of the staff does seem to enjoy a decent beer , trust me i’ve been to specialized beer pubs and have found out that many of the staff don’t even know the difference between labmic and gueze ....

Went here to look for some specific beers. They have an awesome shop, right next to the restaurant. Great selection of hard to find beers. The restaurant looked great, had myself a cup of coffee, since I still had to work and drive.. but I can’t wait to try their food and beer pairing! Great.
