We love beer so this is a must go place to taste lambisque types of beer. It is the only brewery using this method in Brussels so the taste will be different but still pretty good. At the end they give a three small glasses to try.

Sure this place is off the beaten path and not in the nicest part of Brussels but you'd be doing yourself a disservice to not venture out a visit this old, authentic, charming brewery pumping out world class, highly sought after beer. This isn't a Coors Light tour, this is real hand crafted spontaneous beer but is still accessible for... More

... in a fully functioning brew house where you get to guide yourself through the whole process and their work rooms, watching people work. Fascinating process, interesting historic product - lambing. You have to check it out. It's authentic and not cheesy touristy.

I'm really glad we went here, what a unique place! We arrived just before 12 on a Saturday, just in time for the English language intro to the tour. You pay 7 euros, and get a booklet and two vouchers for samples. They provide some helpful context at the beginning of the tour, and then allow you to explore at... More

The Cantillon brewery is unique and nothing short of a walhalla for beer lovers and lovers of sour beer (gueuze style) in particular. Many people don't appreciate the sour, vinegar taste though, so if you plan a visit, make sure this is really your type of beer. If not, you might get very disappointed. When I first visited in 2004... More

Must see and taste if you are a beerlover!!! Very special sour deep taste of one of the heritages of Brussels. Drink it very cold in the summer.

I visited this brewery many times before and I've had never had such a bad Customer Service as now. The stuff was chicky and rushing, making faces if you ask a question! Very rude! Also in the bar, they would sell a beer to the couple in front of us, but to us they told it is too late to... More

The hole building smells perfectly like brett, the wild yeast that ferments beer. It's magical to see where the beer is born and taste it at the end of the tour takes you to another time, when all beer were wild fermented.

You can choose between self guide tour or if you are groups is better to take guided tour. One of the oldest stil working lambic breweries. You can taste hardly available Cantillon beers on site. If you are lucky enough as we, you can talk with Jean Van Roy and he will provide you with history of brewery, future plans... More
