Came here as part of a tour of their newly built yet still nonoperational brewery. The tour was quick and simple yet still informative. The quality of the product De Molen is able to put out with the limited amount of space and equipment is a testament to their love of beer.

The town of Bodegraven is about an hour and a half trip from Amsterdam and well worth a day trip either by yourself or with a few friends. Being a small town/village/burgher?, the brewery is not hard to find being in walking distance from the train platform. You can sit outside and order from a menu consisting of 4 to 5 of the beers brewed on premise or head inside to the shop and pick up a few singles that range in style, price, and rarity.

The owners are nice and quick to respond to any question that you may have. You can tell they enjoy what they are doing. The food is also far beyond what one might expect to see at a brewery and the prices are fair as well. A nice selection of breads, appetizers, lunch, and dinner courses.

Lastly, the beer at this place is to die for and on par if not exceedingly better than all of the major European heavy hitters (mikkeler, norke, brewdog...etc, you get the idea). A rare find, much like their beers, with those even being a bit difficult to find in the main cities like Amsterdam and Utrecht.

Awesome! Beer pairings with cheese and sliced meat plates make an awesome combination (even though I was sick....sorry Donn et al....I had an IPA and some bread and beer sausage). Then, when you are finished having lunch and some great beers, they have an attached bottle shop with De Molen's finest brews in addition to some other beers from local and international favorites. I love De Molen and am looking forward to going back!
