Located in a part of town that certainly isn’t the nice we drove here and found a place to park a couple blocks way. Walked in a non-descript door and went back in time several decades. Very old but well kept wharehouse like atmosphere. To left as you walk in is the bar where you can purchase bottles of on sight consumption, further ahead on the left a quaint tasting room complete with a wood burning fireplace. Across from that is shop, here you can pay for a tour of brewery, and buy glassware, bottles to go and shirts. The tour is 5ish euro and is basically a pamphlet with numbers that as you walk through the brewery gives a brief description of the equipment and what it does. The equipment is so old but in pristine condition. When we were they had just finished brewing because we got to see the coolship with steam still rising being exposed to the open windows. Besides the brewing stuff, barrels galore, very cool to see them checking barrels, and seeing barrels oozing over with yumminess. Another cool thing was the endless bottles, especially really old ones they seemingly forgot about. Beers available were mostly standards but they had Pinot D’Aunis and Mamouche.
This is a most stop if in Brussels. You can see a piece of brewing lore and try some good stuff as well. Looking forward to coming back some time soon.

A must see place for any beerenthusiast. Hard not to get into the sampling mood after walking thru their facility covered with bottles, old brewing equipment and sacks of malt. Geuze and lambic is an aquired taste, and this is the place to start aquiring if you already have not. When we got there at two pm it was not too crowded, at four it was time to leave, families with screaming kids (that don’t belong in breweries) had entered the premises.

Visit on my trip to Brussels. I highly reccomend seeing this place. Staff was friendly and English speaking, talked to the brewer for a while. Bottling Cuvee des Champions when I was there and was given a glass of it. Self guided tour was also interesting. See the old style lambic brewing process, open fermentation. It goes without saying that the beer was excellent.

You have to go here if you are in Brussels. A little farther away from the normal path. The tour is 6 Euros and includes two beers. They basically let you run wild and you can try some fresh beers there that are hard to find anywhere else. I got there around 1pm on a Saturday and it got flooded within the hour - so get there earlier.
Different than any other brewery you have ever been to.

The one and only. Not only is this the birthplace of the incomparable Cantillon offerings, it’s a fascinating look at how old school brewers did things. There’s no artificial cooling, for example, so Cantillon can only brew during the fall and winter.
The tour is self-guided but pretty easily navigable, and fascinating for all of that. Service is not their primary function at the brewery, so don’t expect much hand holding. Everyone was very polite for all of that, though.
If you’re in Brussels, you must go.
Word to the wise: the neighborhood around Cantillon isn’t great, so either take a taxi or know where you’re going.
