I had never really thought about lambic beer much. After touring the Cantillon Brewery I feel very well-educated and happy that I was introduced to authentic (sour) lambic beer. There are (7 Euro) tours but timing is important because they offer them in English and...More

We visit breweries regularly in our travels, but Cantillon stood out with its unique approach. We saw the lambic brewing process as it should be--without all the stainless steel contraptions. The self-guided tour meant that we didn't feel rushed at any point and the samples...More

We walked - It is a bit off the beaten path. You could Uber or taxi though. If i remember correctly, there is a hop on hop off stop fairly near the brewery. Definitely worth the effort!
