I don't have enough words to describe how good I felt in this place. The brewery is incredible, the people are an example of professionalism and brew understanding. And of course, the beer is unique.

We stopped into this brewery mostly to try the Lambics, but got so much more. We paid the 14€ to do a self tour of the brewery and sample two Lambics. Then when we sat down, we found a few different couples and started up a conversation, by the time we were done we had split 11 bottles of Lambics... More

There are so many breweries in Belgium, but if you're in Brussels than this is a very interesting place.This is a "geuze" brewery that opens his doors for visitors.You can do a self-guided tour (with a small map) and you discover "the old-fashioned" way of brewing witch is still typical in Cantillon (luckely).The staff is very friendly and receives you...

This place has a lovely drinking area. Amazing beer that nobody can really say anything bad about and a nice airy table space. Could have spent all day there!

I decided to visit this brewery as I'm a beer fan and enjoy the process of brewing beer myself, and the fact there are no other brewery tours in Brussels. Firstly, the tour is self guided which is incredibly boring as you are reading a leaflet. Secondly, the amount of tourists and people inside the small brewery doesn't make it... More

A very interesting visit of a traditional brewery. There is no guide, but a free booklet which guides you trough the brewery. At the end you have the opportunity to taste two different beers. Really worth the 6 euros entry fee!

I'd recommend a short trip to Cantillon for anyone visiting Brussels - beer geek or not. This is a fantastic example of brewing history, maintaining traditional values and techniques. It's a great little place to explore alone or in a group, with the help of an informative pamphlet that explains each area of the brewery. I was lucky enough to... More

This is a must go for anyone in Brussels. A chance to see where some of the finest beers in the world are made and to sample them? Yes please!

I recently visited the Cantillon Brewery while in Brussels and it turned out to be one of the highlights of my visit. I'm a big fan of craft beer, and I've had the chance to visit many breweries across the US, but this one stood out for several reasons. Rather than following a guide, you're given a self touring pamphlet... More
