Had a wonderful time here! The experience was top notch. The beers were incredible. I had a barrel-aged Hefeweizen that was stellar. Also had to Molen burger that was quite delicious! The whole vibe of this place is quite spectacular. The windmill on the property is still running as a working flour mill. Couldn’t say anything bad about this place. I will always remember the great times and here!

I've always been a fan of De Molen beers, so when visiting the Netherlands, I was keen to visit the brewery. It was a short walking distance from Bodegraven railway station which has frequent connections to many other Dutch cities.

I believe the brewery tour is usually taken by the brewer, but on this occasion he was unavailable so it was taken by one of the staff was was very knowledgeable and as enthusiastic as I suspect the brewer would have been.

We were told about the history of the brewery along with a talk on the brewing process, all undertaken with a glass of beer in our hands to ensure that we didn't get thirsty. (Three glasses in total)

We were then shown round the brewery and given an insight into how the brewery is run. Then we finished off with two more glasses of beer.

After tour, we had a delicious lunch (and more beer) in the taproom. Even if a tour is not available, the taproom is worth a visit. They've a great selection of both their own beer and guest beers and a nice view overlooking the canal.

Excellent beer with a lot of choice. Also a small shop so you can take some home. It is in a windmill next to a canal and they have inside and outside seating.

We arrived here and the beer selection was amazing.
Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about all the products they sell.
Always clean and comfortable feeling.
Sitting outside in the sun with the windmill going round and listening to the river very calming.

We booked the English-language tour and were with only five people which made for a very personal experience. Our guide Johan [who is actually one of the brewers] was extremely knowledgeable and created a great tour [various beer-sampling included]. After the tour we visited the shop which has a great variety of beers and some memorabilia. We ended up in the restaurant for another beer and some bar snacks.
This was definitely worth the one-hour drive from Amsterdam. If you like proper beer then this is a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

We stopped here for launch. Good service, great food (try their steak salad!!) we really enjoyed our visit. If you are in the area, do not miss it! Also, pricing was fair.
