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.

One of the best places I’ve ever been. My love for the Lambic style cames from 2-3 year of experience, trying many different bottled and draught lambics. The ambiance is something really special and unique. The flavour you can smell just entering in the brasserie, is very enchanting and the warmth shown by Jean and his father is absolutely incredible. They are great people! They made me the sensation to be at home since the first step inside the brewery. The room dedicated for the tasting is very inviting and the shop gives the visitors a wide choice at very acceptable prices. The Cantillon Faro is a delicious lambic that everyone should try. The only bad con is that it is situated in a zone not to much safe in my opinion. Actually there are many strange and not recommendable people around the brewery. I suggest to go when the daylight is still high. In any case, this is a place to absolutely go if you go to Brussels. Thank you so much!

Enter in this brewery is a unique emotion, chat and drink a Mamouche with Jean is an unforgettable experience.
