This incredible place is only a 5 minutes walk from Gare de Midi/ Zuid Station. The area is not that great but once you get inside you forget all about it. For 7 euros you get to see the brewery via a self guided tour and also get to taste the beer they make there. Geuze is divine, in my... More

If you have any interest at all in beer (from making it to drinking it) this place is well worth a visit. The tour is self guided but you get a leaflet in your language and you are free to wander round and look at everything. It is very interesting to see how the lambic beer is made and you... More

I loved the self-guided tour of this brewery! While the outside of the building was really unassuming and the inside looked pretty old and grungy, you have to take this brewery for what it is. You have to go in with an open mind, especially if you've never tried a lambic before! I thought it was really cool to learn... More

What a delightful small brewery! It is any about a five minute walk from Gare du Midi and a cheap self guided tour is worth the €7. If you like learning about the history if the lambic style of brewing, this is a can't miss! If you don't like sours, skip the gueze tasting and perhaps try the kriek instead.... More

This is one of oldest brewery in Brussels, Belgium. The tour of brewery wing is very good. Explanation of the tour guide in the brewery is good. They serve two types beer for tasting. I did not like the taste.

After more commercial brewery experiences, this proved to be well worth the short walk from the center of town. Get Stephan from Brussels City Tours to take you.

The Cantillon beers have been a long time favorite of mine and several friends. They have always been hard to get in the USA so it has been rare we have gotten to enjoy them. When we learned that the brewery was only a 10-15 minute walk from the Grand Place we had to go and visit. It is very... More

Visiting Brussels and learning about the lambic history at Cantillon and Lindeman's via tours were amazing. Tasting a lot of the local beers to boot made the experience that much better. Makes you appreciate beer and the respect that comes with it! Cantillon was kinda kitchy, some parts of the tour were very touristy be that its a museum now... More

Second time I was here, and it was allot better this time. The tour guide was so happy and informative that he gave us a smile. You can walk around the brewery by yourself, and afterwards you get to taste fresh lambic
