The Brewery is a bit out of the tourist area, so be thoughtful of when you visit, however, it was a great stop. A self guided tour with hand out works great, and the area to have a tasting very charming.

Awesome brewery with amazing beers. There is a tour (sort of self-guided) which is pretty interesting. Definitely read the pamphlet they give you, there's a lot of good info there. It ends with some samples which you can enjoy at the barrels in the tasting room. Buy more bottles to drink there or to go!

This really was my favorite thing to have done in Brussels. I love their products, and have been drinking them for years back home in Norway. (For a ridiculous price tho. But thats the norwegian governments fault, not Cantillon..) First of all its hard to find, as you go throug a districh with nothing much than a dry cleaner and... More

This was an excellent visit. The tour is self-guided, but there's a lot of information in the pamphlet you get, and the brewery itself is really interesting and beautiful. The beer is also very unique and delicious, especially given that this is the last traditional lambic brewery in Brussels. It's also likely the least expensive place to buy their beer-... More

Not everybody will like the beer. If you're not into sour take a Kriek (which still is very different than the sweetened stuff you see elsewhere). But nothing shows Brussels beer tradition more than this 4th generation family owned place. Check their website for public brewing days, they do those once or twice per year, but you can also visit... More

This place is the home of one of the best beers in the world. Every beer lover should visit here at least once in their life. The Brewery tour is very informative and you get to taste some of their premium lambic beer.

If you enjoy beer this is a great stop! My sister and I went on the tour yesterday. Which lasted about 45 minutes, it was a self guided tour that was done very nicely. Coming from Wisconsin beer is nothing new to us, but it was really cool to learn the process of how this beer was made. The taste... More

Visiting this brewery is required for anyone calling themselves a beer lover. The self-guided tour (introduced by the staff) is sent off in small groups with a detailed information booklet. For 7€ the tour ends with two hearty samples of lambics. The first one was an 18 month old gueuze - the second was choice of their rosé de gambrinus... More

The brewery was founded in 1900 by Paul Cantillon and is, to this day, still owned by the family. Here they brew authentic, traditional Lambic and Gueuze, (which can be recognised by their sour taste.) When the brewery was founded, there were more than a hundred similar breweries in the Brussels area, but after the Second World War the taste... More

This is a place for the beer geeks in Brussels. I'm not talking people who just enjoy beer, but folks who find the history & beer-making totally interesting. Now i love Belgian beer as it's the reason I made the trip and I knew that the Gueze might not be up my alley, but had to go. The tour is... More
