Great bar, restaurant is ok

Jopen is a micro-brewery, bar and restaurant located in a former church in a redeveloped area, Raaks, close to central Haarlem, hence the name Jopen Kerk. They make a large range of craft beers, one of which, Mooi Nel, has won a recent award fot the best beer in Nederland. All of the beers are good... read more

Having been drinking Jopen beers for many years I thought it was about time I visited their home. Not to be confused with the brewery tap which is some way out of town (and has its own TA entry under "attractions") this is a beautifully converted church near the Grote Markt. It offers virtually the whole range of Jopen beers... More

Located in a converted church, the Jopenkerk brewery offers 18 beers on tap, pub grub on the ground floor, and a upscale restaurant on the first floor. If you believe beer drinking is a religion, this is THE place in Haarlem.

On entering I thought "Weatherspoons" as it is a large space with multi taps lining the bar. Unlike JDW the staff seemed to know about the beers they were serving & the toilets were on the same floor as the bar. The people of Haarlem seem to be proud of this place as I was constantly asked if I had... More

Our work colleague brought us here on a Friday evening. I've tried Jopen beer before but I was keen on trying their Neil IPA. My jaw almost dropped to the ground when I saw the price range of their beers. 8,40€ for a half a liter beer was quite expensive but since we traveled all the way to Haarlem just... More

I arranged a small family dinner to celebrate by dad's 80th birthday. We first had a beer outside on big terras on the square. After that we went upstairs for dinner, passing the amazingly looking main bar. The restaurant seems to be floating/hanging in the top of the old church and is covered with persian carpets (in a nice way).... More

Some of the best beer in the country, and all possible varieties and flavours are found here. Interior is cozy to the point of board games and chess, feels very relaxed and unhurried for such a place. You can also see the actual brewing happen, which is a nice touch. Only fault that can be found is the price, which,... More

We went for dinner, food was really good, but the beers and the setting in an old church that has been renovated into a brewery is fantastic! If you don't have time for a meal then just pop in for a beer and the atmosphere...

Inside as well as out a something to behold. The church is a great setting and inside is decorated with large copper kettles in which they brew their own beers, on the spot! If your lucky u can see the doing it while they draft a beer for you. If your sitting outside on a summer day take the time... More
