What a place! You’re afforded a lot of freedom on the tour. Basically they hand you a pamphlet at reception then let you off the leash. Being at the premises where all Cantillon is brewed is an inspiring feeling. When you’re finished the tour, the real fun begins. They give you 2 glasses with the price of admission but the selection of bottle on offer at the bar area is magic. Over the course of this weekend I flirted with my limits for consuming lambics and with so many interesting bottles on offer, we did well to team up with the others at the bar. Basically, patrons come and go typically only consuming their free glasses and then leaving. What you’re left with is the people on a pilgrimage. We spent 4 hours at Cantillon shooting the shit, buying and sharing bottles with others. It was absolutely brilliant. There were so many high points in this trip to Belgium but Brasserie Cantillon was probably my favourite.

This place is THE destination of Brussels for any lambic lover. The building is located in a fairly unappealing location of town a couple blocks from the Zuid Midi station. Easy enough walk, just have to go through some cross walks. Just looking at the place from the outside, you would think it wasn’t anything special. But inside, you quickly learn otherwise. On our visit, they had almost every regular bottle they do, except for the Lou Pepe beers. They had 4 different Zwanzes available and a cask of Iris Grand Cru. Wow! Unfortunately, they only had kriek and classic gueuze for take away when I was here, but that was okay. My wife and I each bought a T Shirt to remember the visit by. Such a great place! All the beers available to drink on site was priced very well, and better than I had seen it anywhere else in town, as it should be. I really hope to make it back here again soon. I just can’t get over how awesome this place is!

Area is a bit sketchy looking, but harmless from what I could tell. The brewery tasting room is very crowded but they provide self-guided tours for a nominal fee which includes two tasters of lambic. They had several rarities available to drink-in including Fou Foune and multiple Zwanze years. They had a less spectacular selection of bottles to go but it might have been because they sold out before I arrived. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Brussels and are a fan of sour beer, doesn’t get any better than this!

Brewery is located in walking distance from the BrusselsMidi train station. Plain from outside hides all the extras. Very good service, staff speaks English.You can go and see almost everything within the building. After the sightseeing two beers to try and more to buy/drink on premises. Great prices on Cantillon beers, probably best in the world :) . Big selection of souvenirs and collectibles. Great place, must have for beer lover in Brussel.

If you want to drink Cantillon, this is the spot. Located in a dodgy part of town, your taken back in time when you enter the doors. Friendly and knowledgable staff. A must stop if your a beer fan.

A must visit in Brussels, located not far from the center (walkable). Unfortunately, they were done with brewing for the time when I was there, so no amazing aromas and views when touring around the brewery. There’s still a nice tasting at the end, where you can try some of the beers, explained professionally by the staff. Definitely worth visiting, despite the selection being a bit limited this time, but the prices are good excuse to take some bottles home with you.

Un esperienza che ogni appassionata dovrebbe fare, che sia un amante del lambic o meno. ambiente che trasmette sensazioni uniche, la tradizione, le genuinità, l’unicità di tutto quanto ti circonda è emozionante.

En unik upplevelse, studiebesök i bryggeriet och bar med fint utbud till bra priser. Familjär stämmning, trevlig atmosfär och härlig personal. Om du är i Bryssel är ett besök här ett måste.

A must for any beer geek, this place is amazing, the smells and the equipment used to make this amazing beer, should be enough to visit this amazing brewery. Outside of that, this is the cheapest place to buy this beer, as well as sample some of the rarer varieties, not usually on sale.
