One of the most interesting places Iíve ever been for sure. On your self guided tour you learn about how beer was made before modern brewing techniques. It isnít only great because youíre seeing the instruments used, but the brewing is going on as you tour! For only a couple euroís you can see a type of brewing that doesnít happen anymore, and then at the end you get a glass of the lambic gueuze and the kriek right from the cask! Awesome.

The center of the geuze universe. Best to visit during the brewing season, which runs from November to March. Open brewing days at the beginning and end of the season are also interesting, but they get very crowded. The tour includes one beer (often a draught lambic), but you can sample many more if you like, and purchase bottles for consumption on premises or take away. Jean Van Roy really knows what heís doing.addendum: with an apparent new policy of not offering beers like the Zwanze (for fear that it will end up on e-bay,unquestionably an evil act), Iíll have to downgrade my rating of this previously pleasant place to drink.

Certainly a worthwhile museum visit, where you get to taste a beer or two and talk to the staff after walking around the tiny lambic brewery on your own.

Uníesperienza veramente unica, un salto nella storia anche per chi non ama il lambic.

Cantillon, 100+ year old building, simple inside deco, very basic chairs, and an old charcoal heater, lots of cases, bottles, and some outstanding beers. Being there is an experience in itself walk back and check out the fermenters, etc, unique smell, old brick building with the nice fresh temperature even during the hot summers. Prices are more than fair. Spoke with some of the employees in French, very helpful.

I love the place obviously for the beers but they help with their kind attitude to understand the world of lambic......Iív been there last jan with my friends from Italy and enjoied so much Thanks....weíll be back next summer...

Definitely a highlight of the trip. It was hard for us to find because we were determined to walk there, Iím sure a taxi driver can take you right there. We were shocked by how ancient everything looked, but it was explained that keep everything the same as possible to ensure the quality of the beer. This place would never be allowed to operate in the US, which is ashame. There cobwebs everywhere! But apparently the spiders keep the bugs away from the spontaneously fermenting beer. You can do a sampling of their beers at the end of the tour and buy their bottles, probably cheaper than anywhere else in the world.

This was a great experience. The owner was very passionate with everything that Cantillon does and the beer defiantly shows this. We took the tour around the brewery and it was really cool to see how this stuff was made. If you go, do not be shocked with all the cobwebs and bugs that are floating around - apparently this helps the fermentation of the beer. As we were leaving, the owner told us to stay a while and they were tasting their new beer that they are brewing with some sort of flower (forgot the name) - boy was this good! Bought a bunch of merchandise and the Lou Pepe cheese was outstanding. It would be foolish to miss this place if you goto Belgium.

A must visit in Brussels! Great atmosphere and smells wonderful. The disordered interior just adds to the ambiance. Self-guided tour has itís advantages, as you can do everything in your own pace. Service in the shop/bar is good and they speak pretty good English. Cantillon beers probably donít get any cheaper than this, but far from all their beers are available. Be sure to get a shirt too, they are awesome!
