Visita molt interessant a una Brewery que t’aboca a temps històrics en el mon de la cervesa. Entens per que una Cantillon es tan especial. La visita te l’has de fer tu amb un paperet que explica on ets a cada moment, jo ho prefereixo a anar varis en grup. La maquinaria es la original i s’entén perfectament el procés. Imprescindible!

If this isn’t a perfect score, I don’t know what is. I have never experienced a more incredible beer mecca than Cantillon itself. The self-guided tour, initiated by incredibly friendly and passionate guides/brewers, lasts as long as you’d like. The barrel room, with its one-of-a-kind ecosystem that allows for the proper aging of lambics, is one of the most beautiful sites a beer lover’s eyes will ever behold. The only regret I have about my trip to Cantillon is not buying more of their world class beer when I had the chance. I hope to return soon.

How can you not love this place. An open-house brewery where you can wander around freely, speak with the brewers and passionate employees and have a taste at the source of the last traditionnal lambics produced in Brussels. Plus, you get to meet some cool travellers and fill your bag with discounted bottles and cool gear, which contributes directly to keeping this world heritage site going. One-of-a kind.

Been twice, had a brewery tour both times, the second one guided. Very basic tasting room (although upstairs is a posher one, for invited guests or pre-booked parties). There is a small bar area as you walk in and a larger bottle and bits counter for taking away further into the room. As you walk in the serving area to your left is where you get your tasters after the brewery trip, or if you wish to try any other beers they produce. I was unhappy on both visits to find few beers on offer, both for drinking in, or taking away: although what I had was fine. I am not a fan of Cantillon’s style of brewing, but that didn’t stop me enjoying others around me pontificating about how wonderful they are to them! This isn’t the sort of place normal tourists come, beer geeks only (and friends).

Una cerveceria única para visitar, conocer el proceso de producción y degustar las diferentes (excelentes) cervezas de éste único productor. El servicio es excelente, ya que a pesar de que el recorrido lo hace cada quien, con una pequeña guía entregada al principio, los propietarios de la misma, están a la disposición para cualquier situación que se ofrezca. El precio es minimo, en comparación de los que se ve y lo que se aprende. En general una excelente visita para todos los a,amtes de la cerveza que se encuentren en Bruselas.

Museum? Ok, I guess so. But only because it is an old brewery, which is basically what it is, an old brewery. But that is the charm of the place, nothing has changed in many many years. Basically a barn/workshop. The staff here are a different bunch, very knowledgeable but obviously tired of the ratebeer types. Prices are better than anywhere but don’t expect to walk out with anything rare. If they have a rare it will be available for purchase on site, to drink on site. Great place to see once and twice if you are in the area for something else.

Certainly one of the world’s ’must-visit’ beer locations. The tour is quite unique in that after an introduction to the brewery by one of the staff you are on your own to wander around the brewery by yourself. The cafe is simple with a range of five or so Cantillon beers in bottle. On our visit we had the classic gueuze, the framboise and the Zwanze 2011. You can buy a nice range of bottles to take away (pretty much the entire normal Cantillon range plus a few specials), and the prices are likely the best you will ever find for Cantillon. The brewery is only a short (appx. 5-10 minute) walk from the Midi Station, so there is really no excuse to not come here if you are visiting Brussels.

Neat little place, labeled a museum due to some health hazzard issues and financial reasons. Lots of tourists running through the tour, that seems to annoy Jean. Got to hang out with him after and talk seriously about lambic. He gave us his opinions on many current issues like ebay, talked about zwanze day (which hadn’t happened yet), and loerik. Fun spot, nice shirts and such. 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.
