Wonderful place; feels worlds away although it’s just a short walk from Brussels Zuid/Midi railway station and 20-30 minutes from the Grand Place. The Cantillon Brewery is a mecca for gueuze and lambic lovers. It’s close to the centre of Brussels in a rather seedy area but step inside and you’re transported back in time to an authentic, old fashioned brewery where not much has changed in a hundred years. For a small fee you can have a self-guided tour, with a tasting included at the end. You get a little booklet packed with information and there are numbered stops around the brewery where you can read all about it. Alternatively, you can just sit in the bar area - a wood panelled alcove with a small pot bellied stove and pendant lampshades ingeniously fashioned out of old bottles - and enjoy a bottle or two served in a wicker basket. There’s also a desk set up like a stall at a country fair where you can buy bottles of beer and souvenirs such as t-shirts and the like. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and the prices are usually lower than anywhere else. Last time we were there it was shortly after Zwanze Day 2011 so, naturally, we had the Zwanze, made from pinot grapes from the Loire this year and more expensive than the usual bottles but still a snip at E14. (Last visited 27 September 2011).

The museum is far more awesome than this place’s ability to facilitate visiting customers. Definitely worth the visit in order to learn about lambic and gueuze, buy your Cantillon beers elsewhere, though.

I liked the self-guided tour very much. Nice to see the brewery at my own pace. Informative booklet and nice tasting at the end of the tour.

Very nice staff, your greeted very kindly, you get a nice history of the brewery when you arrive then you get to go on your self guided tour, cool to see the brewery. Then you come down get you 2 free samples and buy more of other offerings if you desire. The beers are nice, they were sold out of everything but their regular offerings when we were there, but overall very cool

This place is a must-stop if you’re in Brussels. You can’t get a more authentic, traditional brewery experience than Cantillon. The self-guided tour was interesting and the staff was very helpful and informative. After the tour, you’re given a tasting of two of their traditional brews - usually the Gueuze and the Lambik or Gambrinus. Of course, they have bottles for sale but selection is limited depending on when you’re there. Regardless you’re still going to be able to pick some rarer bottles here than what you’d find in the store in Brussels. Excellent location definitely worth the visit.

A exiting tour around the Cantillon history and the tasting afterwards was nice.

Quick visit when I was in Brussels for the Stone event at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Old building, but somehow you feel really at home. Good service, staff speak French, Dutch and English (and maybe even more). While the beers I bought were being packed I got a glass Cantillon Kriek to taste. Lovely!

Se si passa in città, la tappa è obbligata. Attenzione agli orari.
