It's a little off the beaten path, but if you're looking for a brewery experience during a short trip to Brussels, this is the place to come. I loved the self-guided tour and that two glasses of beer are included in the admission!

This is a very historic brewery, and a must visit for beer lovers. They have a bottle shop were they a good seletion of their own beers. They offer a tour, where to get some information and walk around by yourself. They also have a bar, where you can taste their beers and they have a very good selection. The... More

This is one of the Mecca Breweries in the world for true beer nerds. The Lambics Cantillon are know around the world as some of (if not the ) best in the world. You do a little self guided tour where you see all the magic of Lambic brewing and then settle down in their pub and try all the... More

My husband and I went to cantillon for my husband's 30th birthday and were in awe of how nice the staff is and that you only pay 7 euros for a self guided tour that includes 2 tasters at the end. The lambics are delicious and I recommend anyone who is a beer fanatic should come visit this amazing brewery... More

I usually like brewery tours, but this one is self-guided, short and heavily commercial. We tried tagging along with a guide but he was pretentious and annoying so we wandered off. I like lambic beer a bit but am not a huge fan so really the appeal of this attraction is a bit lost on me. At 7 euros it... More

We are big fans of Belgian beer and absolutely loved our trip to Cantillon. The staff were lovely, the tour was excellent and the beer is simply fantastic. The tour is self-guided using signs on the brewery walls & an excellent information booklet. The booklet is available in multiple languages, including English. The tour price includes generous samples of two... More

If you're a beer geek at all, you need to visit this place to see the art of 1990 Belgium brewing. The staff are quite proud of their special beers, which are in fact delightful. But they're not so impressed with what's going on with craft brewing in the US. It's not like visiting a tasting room in the US... More

I really enjoyed seeing the old style of beer crafting during the tour. The two beers you got at the end was a good deal for the ticket price. Lambic style beer isnt really my thing but I can appreciate the effort to remain traditional. Staff was friendly as well. Located a short walking distance from the Brussels midi train... More

This brewery was a little out of the way and it took a bit of wandering around to find it, but it was worth going to if you're wanting something other than the typical beer. They make Lambic beer, which is mainly sour and completely different than any beer we had ever had. I don't think it's something I would... More
