Went there about six months ago on a special invitation of the owner, Michel Ordeman. With me was an American non BA. The brewery is located on an old church in the middle of Haarlem. The wife can go shopping while you drink the beers they have. Great bar with many beers on tap, i believe i counted at least 16 when i was there. You can do a kind of tasting with all the beers in small tasting glasses. VERY NICE ATMOSPHERE...

Vibe: The Jopenkerk really has a great atmosphere because it is located in a former church. When you're at the bar, you can see copper tanks that are backdropped by stained glass windows. It seems that the only place that could too this would be drinking at a real monastery.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware including oversized snifters and stanges.

Service: Service was adequate and all of the waiters/waitresses spoke in English. One of them gave a pretty good description of the different beers that were available and tried to choose based on your favorite styles.

Selection: There are about 10 beers on tap and another dozen beers in bottles. Flights of three beers are also available in small snifters that come on a placemat with the beer's names written down.

Food: I arrive after lunch ended so I tried a variety of snacks including bitterballen, cheese souffl├ęs and a cheese plate.
