Welcome to Brouwerij de Molen in Bodegraven, the Netherlands. Our worldwide known craft beer brewery started in 2004 at the historical windmill De Arkduif along the Oude Rijn river.
Meanwhile our main brewery has moved further up the street but we still create smaller batches of craftbeers in the mill at Brouwcafé de Molen: a beer focused restaurant, excellent beer shop and tastingroom.
