The brewery is located in the city of Brussels, so it is very easy to get to from the gare du midi train station. The brewery itself is very welcoming and has a cute tasting area. The tours are self guided however which I did not like as I was by myself and no one else was taking the tour.... More

Cantillon is a little family brewery where you can find out how lambic beers are brewed, taste variety of their products and buy beer and beer-related souvenirs. With bunch of my friends we visited the brewery in August and spend there more than one hour. The ticket is EUR 7, beer tasting included. Be prepared that beer offered in Cantillon... More

Took my husband here recently whilst based in Brussels (my second visit in 18 months!). A little off the beaten track, but well worth a visit. The tour starts with a 10-15 minute introduction given by one of the knowledgeable staff, then you self-tour the brewery by following the numbers in the leaflet you get with your ticket. You can...

Great to see the whole process and our guide was very informative. The beer is an acquired taste but I liked it and took some home. Well worth a visit.

What a great experience. I've read a lot about lambic/geuze beers, but seeing the process in person, in one of the oldest breweries that still utilizes the traditional style of brewing is simply amazing. For about 7-8 Euros per person, you get free roam of the actual, working brewery for a self-guided walking tour of the place with an informative... More

Went here with my sister. Slightly hard to find, but worth the searching. For €7 you have a self guided tour and two tastings. Super interesting! It was definitely worth the trip!

This was a fun and quick tour but the staff don't really seem excited to be there. Usually when I visit a winery or brewery there is a sense of pride about the place and folks are so happy to have you visit. This place feels like they sold out a little bit. It's cheap and quick and I would... More

What an amazing place! This was a 'need to go' on our short trip to Brussels. As Lambic beer lovers, this place is exquisite! Once you pay the cover charge, you are given a tour book and sent on a self-guided tour, with the promise of 2 tasty Lambic beverages once you complete your journey. Because the tour was self-guided,... More

Not really a beer lover but I really enjoyed this tour. It was something different to do in Brussels, introduced us to Limbic beer (an acquired taste I feel) and some of the history behind it. We walked the few kilometers from the centre of town (take good map or use a phone map) and that was interesting too. We... More

Good value for your money. For 7€ you get an introduction, a self-guided tour and two beers. Interesting visit if you're interested in beer, but not an amazing experience. The location is a little off and the entrance wasn't that obvious. The lambic beer is only brewed during the colder parts of the year, so most parts of the brewery... More
