Visited the brewery for tasting and lunch. The beers were excellent and our server was extremely friendly and knew a great deal about the beers. The food was great and not overly expensive. The store however was a bit pricy since a bottle of US beer cost much more than a six pack back home. Well worth a visit.

Update: November 17th visit. Yeah, One of three customer eating that day. Great Bierstoverij, I mean seriously, the dish was awesome. The beer shop was a treasure chest waiting to be opened, a load more bottles than my earlier visit in August. As always, great draft list and great service. Nice brewpub located in the very typical Dutch landscape. Five beers on tap while I visited, and plenty of De Molen beers to get at the store next door. Selection wise, all trhe DeMolen one could want. Food wise, the lunch menu was nice with regular pub grub and a local touch. Props for the DeMolen beer sausage and DeMolen mustard, just delicious stuff. Sandwhich was nice. Atmosphere, beautiful surroundings along the small canal, few locals drinking a beer or coffee. Inside is a look at the old mill with little decor. The outside area is the view on the parking lot and a garden store. Pricewise is very generous for the food as well as the beer on draft that ranged from 2,25 to 5 euros. Beerstore next door has plenty of DeMolen beers for sale that I found to be overpriced if drank at the bar. Some of the other imports are overpriced.

Borresteijn  (282) Zaandam, Netherlands | July 10, 2011
Visited on a Friday evening for dinner. This place looks very nice, has a cozy feel to it, lots of wood. Basically this is a restaurant with a (world class) brewery attached to it. Food was very nice, had gamba’s and some savoury snacks as a starter. Not cheap, same goes for the (excellent) beer. Beer shop is has a great selection, but way overpriced imo. Annual beer festival is a must visit.

What can one say about this place. Home of one of Europe’s best brewers and probably my favourite European brewery. Located in a lovely little town, an east train ride from Amsterdam. Wonderful building with a working Mill. Cracking little shop, if a little over priced at times. Would love to get here outwith the main festival (but theres only so much time) Still during festival food great(and there mass catering) range is amazing but its clear that normally the range is still pretty impressive. All told worth a visit anytime your in Amsterdam or even Holand

Nice restaurant but certainly a very nice beershop. I don’t think there’s any other store in The Netherlands which has such a variaty of American and Scandinavian beers, as well as beers from other countries all over the world. Very nice and knowledgeable staff.

Strebs  (221) St. Louis, Missouri | May 10, 2011| Updated October 13, 2013
With mixed emotions, I am adding an offkey note to the ratings for de Molen. The place is stunning, situated on a commanding location that almost dominates the small, tidy, and prosperous town of Bodegraven. The beers were fantastic, and the shop was well stocked with interesting beers in addition to the incredible Molen beers. The only fly in the ointment was that one barmaid was left alone to provide service in the shop, in the restaurant, and behind the bar. Sabrina was very friendly and sufficiently knowledgeable, but she couldn’t be at all three places at once. We were informed that the owner was on vacation, so I hope that this situation was the exception rather than the rule. The fact that there were no natives in de Molen makes me think otherwise. Let’s all hope that we beer lovers continue to have a place like de Molen to love, instead of possibly losing it to a case of artistic success, but commercial failure.

Martinus  (213) Baarle-Nassau, Netherlands | April 8, 2011
Nice looking restaurant in a windmill. A nice and rustique looking brewpub is in the same building, which is were we were sitting. Well worth visiting for the great selection of Molen beers on tap and bottle, and most (including me) can’t resist a small excursion to the shop in the building. The only down side is that the staff is rather unknowing of the products or beer in general. Maybe this is because we were there on a quiet Sunday afternoon, but from friends I heard similar experiences.
