ABSOLUTELY essential while in Brussels. I’m kicking myself for not going last year, but then again I did not ahve the appreciation for Cantillon that I do now. Nice tour even if the place was crowded with a large group. The beer was fantastic and we got to sample the Jonge Lambic straight from the barrel. Went here with DrNate03. Bottles, shirts and glasses were dirt cheap. Got a Loerik here and the cork stated it was bottled in 1998! Got some great pics in here as well. Mandatory while in Brussels.

Best beer tour I ever took, both from the beer geek and science geek perspective. Tastings at the end and you can buy bottles cheap. Very friendly people.

I just love going over Cantillon’s. Every time I go shopping at the brewery, they just offer me a free glass beer. The place itself is also very nice and they are extremely friendly.

There is no greater thing than walking around the brewery with Jean Van Roy tasting the unblended lambic from many of the casks until you decide which you like the most, whereupon he starts the old corking machine and bottles some cases for you. Jean-Pierre and the girls of the family are extremely friendly as well. I love Cantillon.

Not too much to add from the other review but to say that this is a must see if you stop in Brussels. It is too bad that they don’t brew between April and October and therefore it limits the number of things to see during that period of time. The tasting at the end is very interesting and, yes, if you have any place in your luggage, don’t forget to buy the three Lou Pepe for $30.

Superb, evocative place in an unassuming location. Turn up on an open brewing day at 8 am and get coffee and croissants before following the brew from mash tun to cool ship. If you are lucky one of the family may offer you a sample of young lambic straight from the cask, if not dont miss the freshly made faro normally on offer. Truely world class.

How could you not have a good time here? Even my girlfriend, who doesn't drink, loved it. This place smells like a gueuze. The tour was really cool. Had a few samples after the tour as well. You could get all 3 Lou Pepe's for $27 Canadian!!! Being the dumbass that I am, I didn't get them because I wasn't sure about how much room I would have to bring back beer. I ended up having lots of room. Didn't try the faro either....man I'm a dumbass.

I really really loved this place. We had a great tour. One of the best lambics, faro, gueuze there are. Nice people and beautiful museum.

Awesome place - great walk through with a good giving imagination of opened roofes for catching the special yeast. Nice servixe, then the head of the brewery comes and chats a little bit with you while petting the cat. The selection is great - and the ambiance is unbeattable - you wanna stay forever and drink everything - the clocks are standing still at this place.

Iffy neighbourhood, I thought, but the place is fascinating. Dirty, ugly lambic brewery with ragged cats and dust everywhere. Lots of fun, great beer to taste...it's on a lot of tourist brochures and everything so I guess the place has widespread appeal, for but those familiar with classic lambic, it holds a special significance.
