de Molen

The brewers of the experimental Brewery De Molen are only satisfied if they regularly brew something special. A beer that is 'off the charts'. That results in many new beers. Every 6 weeks they brew something that has never been brewed before and perhaps never brewed again. Either at their own brew house or in collaboration with other leading craft beer breweries in Scandinavia and Belgium. In 2017, the brewery was ranked number 6 worldwide in the RateBeerBest ranking.

The history

After 12 years of brewing experience, brewmaster Menno Olivier started his own brewery with a tasting room in his garage. Soon the company grew and he moved the brewery to an old windmill, De Arkduif, along the Oude Rijn River in the middle of the Groene Hart. Besides a brewery, you will also find a distillery, a restaurant and a shop with beers and regional products. Menno sees it as his mission to restore the Dutch beer culture and the brewing of traditional regional beers. That’s not all he does, he also shares it with the world.
