Went to brewery on a day trip from Paris. This was our first stop - it was about a 15 minute walk from the train station. It wasn’t the best area to walk through, but it felt safe and we probably could have taken a...More
Cantillon essentially brews beer by way oif natural yeasting. They offer a great self-guided tour, but also have occasionally guided ones. The brewery is small, so easy to comprehend and see the brewing process components. Their beer is not for everyone though. Either you like...More
I made Cantillon Brewery my second stop on my August Long Bank holiday weekend to Brussels and Antwerp.I needed an attraction that was close to Brussels Midi station after we kicked off with the Halle Gate as we had to return to the station to...More
Good way of seeing a brewery (€7) on a self-guided tour, altho it was quite hard to follow what happened in the different stages of production.
You get two small glasses of beer afterwards - definitely an acquired taste!!
This brewery can be done quickly. It benefits from spending time, looking over the process. Be aware that lambic beer isn't too everyone's taste, being quite sour. You get 2 samples after the tour and it's interesting tasting something quite different from standard beer. Last...More
It is a cool concept, but they let ten times as many visitor in as the place can handle. The beer is unique, the setting is very rustic, very interesting, overall it could have been a good experience. Unfortunately, we have spent the time queuing:...More
Creating a 3-4 day budget / itinerary for Belgium & Paris. (1 Replies)
Hi All, We are a young couple planning a week-long trip to Belgium and Paris in mid-February 2008.

We’ve looked at many many websites and googled ourselves mad but we’ve both traveled enough / lived in enough places to know that the best itineraries are created from suggestions given to us by locals / friends and families! Although fairly seasoned travelers,...More

Solo in Brussels for 3 days, What not to miss? Brewery? (3 Replies)
My husband will be in Brussels for 3 days on his own. What should he be sure to see in mid February? Also any opinion on the Cantillon Brewery tour ? He is a home brewer, is it a good tour for him? Any other breweries near by he could tour ? He will have a car. Thank you for your response.

The Catillon brewery I would definitely recommend - it is old, dusty, unique - as long as he isn't expecting something swish with a visitor centre and lots of AV displays etc. But if he's interested in brewing and the history and regionality of different beer styles, Cantillon is a must! It's pretty cheap to get in, you will be handed a leaflet in English which takes you step-by-step through the brewing process, then basically you wander round the small brewery by yourself refering to the...More

Hi Qaminari, Thanks for the reply. I will visit de halve mann brewery in Brugges then when I travel there on Monday. Should I visit the market at Gare du Midi or will the flea market around sablon and marolle be a better option? It seems nearer to the Grand Place. Thanks!
