Lovely canal setting with open fires. About 12 taps of De Molen /Dutch/Foreign beers. Excellent food with friendly service. There’s also a shop attached selling a wide range of de Molen & other beers.

For me the best way to assess a visit to De Molen is to look at the whole journey. So for me this means a comfortable 1hr train trip from Amsterdam Central with a change at Utrecht (10.50 euro each way) and a stroll through the very calm and very very quiet (and almost quaint) streets of Bodegraven. In some ways the brewery cafe is a little unremarkable (ok save for the windmill!!) but attentive friendly service and high quality tap list provide the cream. 20 or so taps with De Molen making up a little over half but the remainder very carefully chosen. Nothing is ’cheap’ and my 6 beers cutting across the whole range cost 26 euro but in the context of the quality completely acceptable. Bar snacks were filling and very fairly priced. Not one of my best ever beer venue experiences but very good and I’m so glad I made the effort to get off the beaten track.

Visited on july 2015.
Amazing brewpub with small bottleshop - place full of DeMolens beers. Everything is here on one place, including rare pieces of course. Where else is better option to pick De Molen, than by them own self? Nice selection of Belgians, too. Friendly and helpful staff, good prices. I just like this old mill! (and their beers!)

Large brewpub which is easy to find, just look for the windmill. Nice, wooden interior, very cozy, with a view on a small canal and a decent patio outside. Quite large and good taplist with mostly their own beers, quite a few specials available, plus some guest brews which do also not lack quality. Prices are a bit high, even for their own beers, but tasting glasses can be ordered. The staff is usually knowledgeable about what they offer, and quite helpful but actually not overly so. Although the shop was closed on a Sunday, I was allowed to go there on my own and take out the beers I wanted to buy. The offerings there are mainly De Molen beers, but other interesting stuff from the US or Scandinavia can be found as well, this time for rather reasonable prices as far as I can say. Really a great place, one of my favourites of the country so far.

Does suffer from being out of the way, not on a direct public transport route between any of the major cities. But well worth the detour. The renovation work has coincided with the increase in the number of beer taps and hence the guest beers. Quite modern feeling, but sort of homely as well.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in June, the weather was great so I was surprised not to find the place packed, especially considering its situation in a windmill on the banks of a river that passes through Bodegraven. As the De Molen brewery tap (the brewery itself is not far from this original brewery site) there is a great selection of their own beers on tap plus a few guest beers as well. I had the Rasputin, the Hel & Verdoemenis (Imperial Stout) and the Imperial Stout which was brewed in collaboration with Cigar City brewery. All were top notch, strong tasting, full bodied imperial stouts but still with their own unique character. After discussion on our table the Hel & Verdoemenis (the flagship Imperial Stout of De Molen, according to the barman) came out as the best of those we tried. They have a food menu as well but I went there for the beers so didn’t pay much attention but what I saw coming out of the kitchen looked impressive. There is a beer garden as well and of course a small shop with a huge selection of bottles, and a few t-shirts and glasses. Bear in mind that you can find the bottles cheaper in the supermarkets in Holland but obviously the selection is much bigger in the shop and they have limited edition ones as well. Considering De Molen played such an important part in the Dutch beer revolution it’s one of the must visit places for the beer traveller.

I had lunch here and several beers. Also got to buy a lot of De Molen beers in the shop. Super friendly staff managed by MrHangover that also brought us a box of out of date beers to freely pick out beers to bring back home. Great food and super fresh beers. Great place indeed!
