A must-visit for anyone in Brussels! The opening hours make it a little difficult to fit in one’s schedule, but when I finally made time to visit I was not disappointed. It is great to have the freedom to walk around the brewery/museum and feel connected to the brewing process in such a quaint, intimate, and traditional brewery. If you’re not familiar with traditional gueuze or lambic, prepare yourself for a completely different and somewhat acquired taste. At the time of my visit, I had already tried many gueuzes and was prepared for the uniqueness of Cantillon beers. The selection available for tasting was not particularly impressive, but a little conversation with Alberto or Jean about their beers and you will probably be offered a couple others to try. I asked about their Zwanze 2011 and Mamouche beers, and was able to try both of them too before leaving the brewery with an affordable bottle of the 2009 Lou Pepe Kriek. Once you understand gueuze & lambic beers, Cantillon is the place to visit for a great experience and some of the best beers the world has to offer.

So me and sebletitje made our way over to Cantillon. Very non-descript outer appearance. Just inside the door to the left they were pouring beer in what looked like a make-shift “bar” area. Just to the right are two levels of brew equipment that look like they’ve been there since the ‘30s. A little further in on the right is a sovereign counter where I wish to hell I could bring back some of those Cantillon tall tulip glasses. 4 of ‘em would be great but would likely break during the 5K+ mile trip back home. To the left is a very quaint sitting area with seats and barrels and a few booths as well as nick/nacks here and there. The beer was wonderful and I particularly enjoyed the Faro and the Iris. The staff here is very patient, in control and very friendly. Great people. The brewer even talked with me and Seb. for a good 20 minutes. Excellent experience. You need to go here.

A very interesting experience. Jean needs money so he labels it a museum. Tourists bring him money but overrun the place as a result. He gets annoyed and stand-offish as a result of dealing with idiots all day.

That only bothered us for the beginning though, because we could do the tour on our own. Once finished, we talked to him, and after a few moments, our conversation was full force, discussing zwanze, ebay, loerik, and so forth. He opened up a jonge lambic not offered as an "after tour" beer. We bought a few others and enjoyed hanging out. If you are patient and courteous, Jean will talk with you person-person, not brewer-tourist, but don’t come expecting to open Soleil de Minuit or something.

Visiting this authentic, perhaps the most traditional lambic brewer is a must for anyone who enjoys the sour brews that they put out, especially when it’s a 2-minute walk from the Brussels metro. Inside, between 5 and 10 beers should be available for consumption on premises or take-out. Unless you’re well-known, I would not expect to be able to take out anything very rare. We were able to drink a bottled Zwanze, interestingly different from the tap, but it was not to be taken out. I had a great chat with Jean who was very available, interesting and interested. The visit is fun, the old equipment being lighted by natural sources of light through well-spotted windows that made for beautiful light for photography. The woody smell as you step in is also one that you remember forever and adds immensely to the experience. A very fine brewery to visit.

Visited twice already. Once during their special weekend where they offer food pairings with a hell lot of beers, which was amazing. A second time some months later. If the brewer is present, you can get quite some information and questions answered. The rest of the staff is a little less knowledgeable once you start asking more detailed questions about brewing process and technicalities. Both times I visited, they were not brewing, but apparently it’s even more interesting to visit in winter, during the brewing period. I was a bit disappointed in the selection, because usually they only carry about 4 to 6 different bottles, while they make such a huge amount of different beers. That was a bit of a let-down. Other than that, definitely worth to check out, both as a geuze lover or as a first encounter with the Brussels sour ales.
