This gem is hidden in Brussels and offers a unique show to a beer traveler. I was traveling solo and was welcomed by the family members who took me trough the whole building showing in details the process to create Lambic beer. After the tour stop at the shope and take something home to savour.

This was a great little diversion trip while we were in Brussels for a couple of days. The neighborhood is a bit out of the way and took us about a half hour to walk there from the Grand Place. The tour is self led with a very informative pamphlet. This is a real working brewery, so you may have... More

This family-run brewery is worth an hour of your time in Brussels. The brewery is located in an interesting neighborhood, and the entrance is non-assuming. We were promptly greeted by the staff upon arrival. They have a self-guided tour, which gives a lot of flexibility. They also have pamphlets in several languages. We had to wait maybe 5 to 10...

The brewery is located in an unassuming neighbourhood near the Gare de Midi, a little tucked away but not too difficult to find with the aid of Google maps. We were welcomed on arrival by the very friendly staff and given a short introduction before following a self guided tour - there are numbered signs throughout the buildings and we... More

Beer in Belgium is not like the typical beer Americans drink. Cantillion creates sours which are lambics and guezes. To most Americans this beer is weird, but when you realize the craftsmanship it takes to create these masterpieces, you will love it. These bottles are cheap about 6-8 euros in the brewery, and you drink them there. Take some home... More

Craft beer & " lambic beer" made in brussels, authentic place for a very interesting visit. Nice and kind People to talk to about beer and cheap price for a tour (visit + 2 beers to discover at the end of the visit).

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
