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.

I'm not sure that the Jopenkerk should be regarded as a restaurant as I suspect that most who go there are not too interested in the food. The beer is, after all, the major attraction. If you're into independent beers it's likely that you will be happy here. However, if you're looking for a place to sit and enjoy a... More

The best beer in the netherlands 2015 is from Jopen Beer, so must visit if you are in Haarlem and are in for a beer (or two). Situated in a former church adds to the experience. only downside is the bad acoustics, but if after a beer or two that will not longer matter to you.

The Jopenkerk is a very good place to have a drink or two with friends and family. Friendly atmosphere, authentic beers and good food. During summer the terrace is very inviting and when it gets colder you can enjoy yourself inside. Live music on a regular basis, Enjoy.

I went to Jopenkerk with friends but I myself don't drink. To be honest, I wish I did because their selection is huge! And they even gave a taste to one of my Irish colleagues as it was his first time there. If you appreciate handcrafted good quality beer, you should definetely visit this place ;)

One of the best places to be in Haarlem and in my opinion great food too! Jopenkerk is known for its famous Jopenbier that also gets sold around supermarkets and bars in whole Holland. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. As a snack I highly recommend the Jopen bitterballen. They are fresh and taste just amazing :)

Back for a second visit for lunch. Dined in the evening a number of years ago. For beer drinkers this is the place to come a church turned into a micro brewery and restaurant. Not sure what God would make of it but he hasn't stopped them making great beer and you can also get wine. Great to do lunch... More

Went to taste some house brewed beer and really liked all I tried. It seemed like it would be a very fun bar with live music at night.
