Awesome. The self-guided tour was of great interest, especially the barrel store and fermenting vessels. The building was atmospheric to walk around, with its dark corners, cobwebs and mustiness. Had an interesting chat with Jean-Pierre Van Roy and his wife over a few beers - they gave me a faro on the house. One of the great beer destinations.

I can’t really describe how great this place was. It was everything I imagined.. down to the cats. I did the self-guided tour, took some wonderful pictures, oogled the hundreds of bottles & barrels. Ran into some people from somewhere in the states & had a few beers with them. Go here.

What more could you ask for. This place is pure magic. Ugly outside, the second you step inside its like paradise. Barrels *everywhere*, old bottles along the walls. I saw Jean giving a tour, unfortunately in Flemish, so we couldn’t really join in. I shook his hand later, though :) Sampling the stuff fresh from bottles is great, too. Unfortunately they had nothing rare when we were there.

2013 Edit: seems like a Rick Steves selection...with beer geeks and non beer geeks crowding and killing the old vibe. This also makes way for shifty service.
From 2006: This place is just cool as shit...and the folks are cool as shit too. As far as beer goes...I wasn’t there when anything was crazy...or at least able to chat them out of something crazy...but it was still the best brewery tour ive taken. And the selection...in as far as it is cantillon...is still better than 99% of places listed on this site.

Unparalleled brewery tour where you can view the ancient brewing equipment, see the cobwebs, smell the damp aromas, see the aged straw-colored hops and see the four legged mouse traps as well as the brewers’ history in photographs up on the wall. Not to mention the beverages are amazing.

A must see experience when in brussels. The brewer was very helpful. Nice service and a good selection of cantillon beers. Dont forget to ask for the faro!

Hard to find a more interesting place for fans of primordial beer. The service is top notch and the beers are interesting and fresh. We even got to taste the lambic directly from the cask! The selection is Cantillon only. The long rows of barrels filled with aging and fermentating beer is worth every inch of the small admission fee.

the walk from the trainstation felt like I was in baghdad, but once inside this place was like the green zone. I was by myself, but got the full intro and guidebook (which I left at the brewery, dammit)... self-tour was great, definitely a throwback. Place smelled wonderfully sour. Tasting was nice. I got stuck behind a large group of germans, but the nice guide lady brought me a glass. And you can buy a lot of different types there. Bought a few 75L, now I have to figure out how to get them home.

Small and true lambic brewery - Family buisness
Self guided tour
Possible to taste a wide range of the products. Was allowed a special Faro-taste.
March 2009 - group visit. Very different guiding - some with too much undocumentet or even false information.

Located in a quite run down area, don’t be discouraged, but make sure to find the place. Inside it’s all worth it. I arrived at the museum, just to be showed into a guided English tour, which was very nice. They had the Faro for us which was lucky. Sold out of XL T-shirts at the moment, so didn’t get a souvenir with me. Would have bought beers to take home if it wasn’t that I was flying home. Well worth the extra triup. Quite close to the south railway station. Nice selection of bottled Cantillon to take home.
