The food menu isn't extensive but everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. I had the mustard soup to start and really liked it. My coworkers said that it's a common Dutch soup. Not surprisingly it has a strong mustard flavor. The chopped apples added good crunch and nice flavor. I had the fish with shellfish sauce and gnocchi for... More

Friends suggested I visit the Jopenkerk on my visit to Harlem, as it houses the biggest craft brewery in the province of North Holland. This beautiful building has been decommissioned as a church, but the interior still has loads of "Churchie" features including stained glass windows and wooden pews. Loads of their craft brews are available on tap, and others... More

If you like beer, this is the place to go! Set in an old church the setting is already wonderful creating magical atmosphere. The beer selection is excellent (as are the other drinks). The beer is brewed locally and Jopen Bier is famous now throughout the country. The place also has a restaurant upstairs.

Too many varieties of beer for me to handle. Interesting place to visit, this beer-church. High ceiling, view of the copper kettles where the beer is being brewed, the possibility to have a meal, plus the waiters with aprons and buns (hair) make this a nice and hip place to visit. Only downside are the acoustics, because of the high... More

We visit Haarlem two or three times a year. Our son in law is Dutch. I desire well made and interesting beers, and so do the Dutch. At Jopen Church you can sample them all and some short run specialities. The waiters are superb and will help you make a choice that will be in the mark. Have a bite... More

The location is amazing, situated in an old church. They make their own beer, which is pretty good :)

Fine atmosphere, good service and most of all beautiful local craft beers on draft. All in a beautifully restored church where they still brew every weekday.

This is another location of the Jopenkerk. Great beers they made themselves (I recommend their IPA but other beer I tried are also good). You can also have food like burger and fries.
