The beers are great, there is a huge selection. The food is more than ok, but the place is always crowded, so the service is a weak point. Still highly recommended, but you need time to enjoy!

Never had the pleasure of dining in the Jopenkerk (will have to do that soon) but when sightseeing we decided to have a drink in this unique style cafe. We had some beers and the staff was more than happy to help us choose between the different kind of local beers they offer. Was very nice to have someone know... More

What a fantastic location. We were a large party and received excellent service. Four adults, two teenagers, two young children and one small child. Everyone was treated well. The staff were very respectful of the children. We were with our Dutch friends but the staff still made every attempt to help us when we spoke in English. The food was... More

If you are looking for a nice place and a lot of beer taste Jopen Kerk can be a good option. Try Malle Babe and Biterballen = Delicious

The Jopenkerk in Haarlem is a great place to have a beer (or two) with friends or during the day even a cup of coffee with a business associate. Just do not make the mistake to order food. In stead of offering a solid steak and sateh, they try to offer dishes which are to complicated and of a poor... More

Nice selection of local brewed beers. All located in a former chappel of a monastery. The outside square has no evening sun.

I have been here on a number of times on business trips. I was here recently and as usual the beer and service was excellent. The venue itself is worth seeing even if you don't drink beer! This bar/brewery is set in what was a church that has been converted into a bar and restaurant. When you walk in you... More

Let me just say the beer here is great and the church is beautiful inside. We have been a few times now to try the different beers and one time we did get hungry so we decided to order some food. Probably a mistake since they obviously want the beer to be the focus here and that is understandable. My... More

Great little brewery with a wide range of boutique beers in an old church with plenty of atmosphere.

Popped in here twice on a short break in Haarlem. Staff were really lovely, offering advice on beers & food. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and interesting setting. There's lots of beers to choose from and some good snack choices to soak up the alcohol. There's lots of tables on the plaza outside if its a nice evening. I'd definitely... More
