A fun outing
Oct 2021
The moderately interesting self-guided tour took about 30 minutes. The tasting afterwards was interesting. The whole place has a friendly, quirky vibe, and the geuze makes a great souvenir.

The Mac Daddy or lambic and gueuzerias
Sep 2021 • Solo
This brewery is a short walk from Gare de Midi. If you are into lambics and gueuze beers this is a must stop… especially since Lindemans just outside of Brussels is still closed to yours. And frankly, this is the best beer in this style you’re going to find - possibly in the world. A nicely curated self walking tour of the brewery and three tasters at the end (young lambic, gueuze, and Kriek).

If you just fancy a drunk, there is a nice bar on the 2nd floor with 3-4 drafts and a nice bottle selection all at a reasonable price .

Tasty beers

Worth a tour if visiting Brussels! We got to taste through a flight of their beers, which were all amazing, but the raspberry one was definitely our favorite.

Belgium Brewery

While traveling in Belgium, we wanted to visit a brewery with history + character over a touristy spot.

I was not well versed on authentic lambic beer and while I may not be the biggest fan, it was very informative and entertaining to learn about the history of lambic brewing.

The staff was friendly and knowledgable. I would definitely recommend visiting when in Brussels.

Great trip

Amazing brewery with equipment still in use since it first opened over 100 years ago. You will still see original family members (5th generation I believe) running around working. There are so many lambics to try and the atmosphere is cozy. There is limited seating in the tasting area so get there early to guarantee a table. One of the few places in Belgium you can actually sit and enjoy a beer inside the brewery and not just at a tasting cafe nearby.

Amazing
Jan 2020
We were lucky enough to visit this brewery while they were actually brewing. Most of the breweries you visit they show you the old equipment and you never see where they actually brew. Cantillon let you walk through everywhere they were brewing and to see the coolship in action was truly a once in a lifetime experience for me. If I ever make it back to Brussels I will be coming back here for a visit since we visited on the first night in town and were a little tired. If you tour only one brewery in this area make sure you visit Cantillon!

For serious lambic lovers
Feb 2020 • Couples
Apparently this place is pretty internationally famous among beer enthusiasts for its lambics, Krieks, and Geuzes - essentially sour beers. It was on my husband’s must-visit lists during our day trip to Brussels. We chose to do the self guided tour which included two small tasting servings. They start with a brief talk (available in various languages at different times), and then give you a pamphlet discussing different parts of the brewery and brewing process. They are adamant that you do the proper tour in order to get your tastings at the end. Then you can go upstairs and order the bottles - if you are planning a trip here, you’ve probably already done your homework and know they can only be purchased by the bottle, not on tap, so it can be quite pricy. Bring your wallet and make friends with some people nearby so you can share bottles to taste a variety. Personal preference - enjoyed our time at 3Fonteinen more, but they each have a very different ambience.

Visited in a trip to Brussels-small family run place with a great history and self guided tour. Lovely drinks and a good selection of items to buy - loved it

Excellent tour of an independent brewery
Jan 2020 • Friends
The tour of Cantillon is hassle-free (you can just show up and easily buy a ticket for a self-guided tour) and very insightful into the world of lambic and gueuze brewing. The staff welcome you with a smile on their face. With the self-guided tour you are given a brief introduction to the brewery and the type of beer that is made there by one of the staff. You are also given two beer tastings at the end of the tour.

Can’t Miss
Nov 2019 • Couples
My partner is a brewer, and Cantillon was a big part of the reason we wanted to go to Brussels. It didn’t disappoint. Seeing the way the traditional brewery makes beer was such a cool experience, and we got to taste some very unique beers. A once in a lifetime experience. If you enjoy beer or are at all interested in its creation, this is a can’t miss.
