Amazing. Itís not a brewery tour in the traditional sense; you pay your five euros, and they give you a booklet and turn you loose to wander the functioning brewery. The staff that are around are actual brewery workers, and if you ask in a language they speak (I spoke mainly French but most of them also seemed to speak English) they will answer your questions. The brewery itself is beautiful, from the copper brewing vessels, to the huge vaults of fermenting or aging barrels of beer, to the airy, almost religious koelschip. When you feel like it, and not before, you can wander over to the tasting area and theyíll give you a glass of gueuze and a glass of fruit lambic of your choice. Beer prices are reasonable, and they also offer lots of Cantillon swag. A mandatory beer geek experience in Brussels.

Unforgettable experience - unlike most brewery tours. You get to wander around this historic and operational brewery at your leisure. The few workers are the actual Cantillon brewers and staff. A complimentary tasting of two at the end of the tour too. Donít miss this while in Brussels.

One of the few must-see in Brussels. Beer museums can be pretty much all the same: a short tour, a sip of beer at the end, big advertising panels all over. Cantillon is different, and the difference starts from the beers themselves, so incredibly tasty and difficult for someone not accustomed to the taste of real gueze.

This place is fairly easy to find from the Brussels South trainstation. Has a very nice feel to the place, just seems like a real nice, family kept brewery, exactly what it is! Very nice and cosy place, sell the beers at a great price. Staff there also very friendly and helpful, could try a free beer to taste it. Great people and great beer, makes a great brewery and a great place.

My attitude towards brewery tours isnít all that great Ė if youíve seen one youíve seen them all. Well, that definitely isnít true in the case of CantillonÖIíve visited quite a few breweries, and none were quite like this. The brewery is in a Turkish neighborhood in Anderlecht, easily accessible by the Brussels metro if you know where youíre going, which I didnít. When we found it and turned the door handle, I expected it to be locked. But the place was open for business. A few Euros and we got an explanation of the brewing process in English, a brochure, a self-guided walking tour, and a few samples of the gueuze and kriek. The brewery is quite a bit different than others Iíve been to. Itís building and equipment is old, there are barrels and bottles aging everywhere, and there is a musty untidiness that somehow seems to suit the production of spontaneously fermented beers. Itís weird that the big shallow vat where wild yeast is captured is within smelling distance of a half dozen falafel and kabob places. I would recommend this tour it was the only brewery I visited in Belgium and a far cry from either the big brewery tours (BMC/Heineken) or the craft brewery tours Iíve been on. There isnít a ďtour centerĒ the way a big American brewer would have one Ė we sat and drank our samples as bags of malt were being lifted upstairs to the mill.

A brilliant place to visit. A great museum where you can see everything up close. But it is not just a museum, it is the last working spontaneous fermentation brewery in Brussels. And the ticekt includes two glasses of their beer.

Yes, itís a must. When I go again, Iíll hang around trying more of their beers if I can, and buy all of them to take out. You canít find a lot of this stuff otherwise, and if you do youíll pay more even in Brussels. Visited in Sept. 2005.

What can say about that fantastic experience, what about all those funky casks, the legendary fermentation vessel, the kindness of the Van Roy family? Unforgettable.
