“Average beer, good place for a large group”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Did not eat, so can't comment on the food. The beer is average. Would be a good place for a big group. You can sit inside or outside and it's friendly and clean.

“Great brewery in old church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for a beer on The King's Birthday 2014. Great beer selection. Brewery is in an old
Church with a very interesting design. Definitely worth stopping in just to see the inside. Didn't try any of the food but looked like your standard bar food choices. All the beers were very good.

“Great fun place for beer with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

When visiting Harlem, the Jopen is a recomended visit for the experience of good beer from a micro brewery situated inside a former church; it is just a few minutes walk from the centre of city, a large place which accomodates groups without hassles (we were a group of 10) with great ambience; in house beer selection 12 types of which I particularly liked 6 and 8; a great place for good beer and great conversations

“It's a brewery for real ale fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Not sure why trip advisor has it listed as a restaurant. Would you go to a restautant and ask and ask about their table decorations? It's a great haven for real ale fans. It keeps 12 ales on draught that it seems to brew itself. There are a futher, oh I dunno, twenty ales they brew and have in bottles, plus some guests ales. There's about 50 anyway. Enough for any real ale fan. The "extra stout" is a black ale I really liked, being from Scotland. There is food available, just to extend your drinking capacity.
The Kerk is located in the west side of the city centre, inside the ring canal, as it were. Things to know: you can order a selection of 3 ales in smaller glasses, about the equivalent of the British 1/3 pint as tasters. The waitress can give you her choice or you can ask for something specific. I love the European Wit (white) beer style. Tip 2: across the plaza is the supermarket Albert Heijn which stocks about 8 varieties in bottles from the Jopen Kerk brewery. They are the small size of 30cl and come in at a bit more than a Euro a pop. Excellent for export back to the UK to re-live that Haarlem experience.

“Fabulous place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

This old church is now a brewery/bar. The interior is so exciting you tend to forgive anything else. We went for lunch, which maybe wasn't the best idea. Service a little confused and lunch not that great, but I will surely come back. Only next time for some Jopen beer in an exciting environment instead of for lunch.
