The history of Brewery de Molen
Brewmaster Menno Olivier started De Molen brewery in 2004 after twelve years of brewing experience. The brewery is located in the historic windmill 'De Arkduif' on the Oude Rijn in Bodegraven. De Molen has quickly become a leading pioneer in the craft beer revolution, winning gold at the Great British Beer Festival in 2005 with their stout. This was a style that was hardly brewed in the Netherlands until then. Today, De Molen's tasting room, restaurant and beer shop are located in the windmill.
