As ever, Brouwerij de Molen and Bodegraven set the bar high for beer festival standards. The impeccable level of hospitality, organisation and care that comes from Menno, John and Jaco is spot on!

Thank you for having us De Molen! Thank you to every volunteer that helped us with what ever we needed, for bringing us pre-session sandwiches and for being 100% lovely! Thank you to all the breweries involved for bringing that grade A beverage game and thank you to everyone who came to drink and enjoy our beers! A special shout to Nienke and her partner: no.1 Sea of Tranquility fans! It’s fair to say you drank about half a keg! 

In case you didn’t know, we served our very first barrel aged beer! An XXXK Mild aged in Old Peculiar barrels brewed especially for Borefts. A niche and small scale project, but dead exciting! Thank you everyone that came and queued for the 5pm launches and drained the barrels in 15 minutes, YOU ANIMALS!


If you’ve never been to Borefts, put it on your list of absolute musts! It’s a really great festival and totally worth the trip!

Much love Holland!
