went a few times and did the tour once... 7 Euro and you do your own tour, after you get 2 free samples. 14 Euro bottles for stuff you can not find under 80 bucks US and 7 Euro glasses.

Once you can find the place it's friendly, full of beer-lovers and humour, a veritable working museum, there's a brief talk and then you are left to your own devices and pace. Excellent beers to sample at the end, including the distinctive lambic.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tour. Not being a huge beer drinker and not having tried La Gueuze at all, I was a little less than thrilled when I found out I was going to be here (the group I went with had set this up well in advance). This is one of the few breweries in Belgium that... More

Genuinely do not understand how this is getting so many good reviews. It's in a horrible, dilapidated part of town which makes the walk there pretty grim. The tour is self guided and takes no more than 15 minutes to complete. You could get the same effect, wandering through a smelly warehouse. At the end of the "tour" you are... More

The history of this bar is what makes it unique. It was founded in the 1900s and I believe it's been family owned ever since. We took the brewery tour and it was interesting to learn about how they make the beers. the actual tasting was okay, their beers were not my favorite.

One of my favourite destinations on a belgian breweries tour: an old brewery, still in activity, where I can show and explain to visitors from all over the world what lambic and gueuze is all about.

Historical Brewery in Brussels. the area is a little run down but the brewery was fantastic. Self guided tour after an introduction by the staff in English. Loved tasting the beers, cannot get these in the US. As a beer lover this was a must do attraction.

Cantillon has long been one of my absolute favorite beers. I couldn't believe I had the opportunity to visit this brewery and after I left I couldn't believe how much it still surpassed my expectations. If you're a "traditional brewing" nerd, this is one of the best places on earth to figuratively and literally get your fill of all things... More

You do not have to like beer to visit Cantillon, if you like learning something new while on your holiday, you'll also like this place.

Cantillon is a rare look into traditional practices for making Lambic. The self guided tour takes about 20 minutes and is a rare and fascinating look at the underpinnings of historical brewing practices. Great to take the tour and enjoy a few drinks to sample the products afterwards.
