Visited during 2016 Borefts. Visited the brewpub and the bottle shop. Nice ambiance, the mill and the backyard canal creating an unique setting. Bottle shop was very nice with great prices. Lots of de Molen beers, but also other breweries. The brewpub was occupied by Brewdog and Cigar City, so can’t judge the usual selection but looking at the online menu it seems very good. The burgers were tasty. Worth visiting.

Erg beperkt aanbod. Wat molen bier en een stelling anders. Hopelijk was hier een reden voor en had ik vandaag gewoon pech. Maar als dit onder de nieuwe eigenaar zo blijft kunnen ze de shop net zo goed sluiten

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.
