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.

Boudicca  (1195) 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).

I won’t be able to add much more to the reviews below. Visited during the festival, and the place was excellent. The festival itself was amazingly well organized, all went smoothly. The old brewery looked great, authentic, lots of ambience. The new brewery looked good as well. I really cannot complain about anything here. We had an awesome time.

Visited the store during their BBF festival. I liked how the store appears with all the dark wood. A very nice selection of beers from all the sweetspots in the world. I bought an Alesmith IPA which I got from their basement because they only wanted to have one on the shelf and then store the rest. Prices for some beers were a bit high. Would love to go there again when it’s a bit less crowded.

Visited during the BBF 2011. The ambience surrounding the mill is very nice. Very rustic and true to Bodegraven’s rural setting. The beer selection was really excellent. Of course there were lots of specialties from the different breweries attending the Beer Festival, but the other stuff was also impressive. Of course a good selection of De Molen beers, but also Danish (I bought my long-time want Amager MurpHill), Belgians like Struise and Westvleteren, a good selection of American beers. Good policy on their Alesmith IPA’s - only one on the shelf and the others in a dark and cold basement so they weren’t exposed to heat or sunlight. Good one. The De Molen and Belgian beers were decently priced, although some of the Americans and especially the LoverBeers were high, even in comparison to Danish standards. But a really cool store overall.

DutchDrebus  (43) Oirschot, Netherlands | September 26, 2011
Amazing beer shop with beers that are quite hard to get in NL. Maybe it’s a little bit expensive, but it’s almost imposible to compare the prices of these beers to other stores. Great variety. Some beer are a bit too exposed to sunlight, standing directly in front of the window. Visited during the festival so some of the staff were temporary volunteers. I’ve heard some of the staff working there on regular days doesn’t know too much about the beers. Everyone kept cool even though it was quite a busy day. The place looks nice and authentic. If it was closer to my home i would visit it more often. Be sure to bring enough money because it’s so hard to pick. A true candystore for beerlovers.

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.

Very nice place. the service is slow but the staff is friendly and polite. Food is overpriced , i took the dutch menu (Dutch shrimps, dover soles, Semolina pudding & berry juice for 31€, fried chips were offered) anyway dover soles were great, the dessert..no! I love his beer, and drink a De Molen beer on tap in De Molen brewpub was exciting, the price of the beers on tap is fair: Donder&Bliksem (boheems pilsner, 5,5%, 2,75€); Wit&Waarachting (ons eigen witbier, 5 %, 3€); Heen&Weer (tripel, 9,2%, 4,25€); Hel&Verdoemenis (russian imperial stout, 10,2%, 5,25€) were the top. Hot&Spicy (10%, 3,25€ proefglas) for me was better than mikeller texas ranger. Bed&Breakfast (coffiebitter, 4%, 3€) the taste is so intense, to match with a dessert or to drink alone. In the beer shop you can find his production and all the best brewing as well (Founders, Mikeller, Haandbryggerie, Nøgne, Amager, Westvleteren). i’ll go back in the future
