Arrived late on a Monday afternoon.. Very unsure if it was closed as the door was shut. We prodded the door; it was open. Result. Walked in and was greeted by Jean and immediately asked us what we would like to drink. Wow what a greeting. I asked for the Zwanze 2010 which he poured for me iin the rare orange glass, what a gentleman. The rare beer in a rare glass. Wow. Enjoyed a few beers and bought some merchandise from Jean and was left very impressed. Very good prices all around. 13 Euros for t-shirts. Reasonable prices for beer. Cantillon is a legend and still living so go before you regret.

Amazing place. The history, the beer. It is like a museum- dusty and smelling of ancient brews of yore. But beer and yeasts alike are alive and floating around. Jean was an amazing host, we had some lambics from the barrel. I bought some rarer Cantillon stuff. This is a family run place and they treated me like family. Wonderful experience.

To come to this, one of the original production spots of lambic, is a great experience in and of itself. The tour isnít so exciting, mildly interesting, like wandering through a warehouse of a product you truly admire..... itís a working place, and thatís about it - but youíll get a great idea of how their products are made. The finale of tasting two different types of Cantillons was the highlight, however. My big issue with this place is that I was ready to buy one of everything they had but sadly had run out of a lot of their products! But I guess that means Iíll just have to go back sometime.

What a gem this is! Part museum, part brewery, part tasting room/bar, Cantillon is a must for any dedicated beer fan when in Brussels. After a brief introduction/ticket purchase, we made our way through the establishment, guided by signposts and brochures. Fascinating to see the old oak barrels, corked up for sporadic ventilation and with huge heaps of foam from the fermentation, spilling all over the top. Upon completion of our tour, we were treated to samples of the geuze, the kriek, the framboise and even some unblended lambic, as a bonus. We engaged in a stimulating and interesting conversation with the son of the family proprietor, and when he realized we were really interested in his product, we got to taste an exclusive "vos" (young lambic) sampling of the next batch of FouFoune, straight from the barrel. Really awesome service from great people carrying a great tradition. Oh, and did I say they were great? Because they were.

Sicuramente affascinante, "trasuda" storia da tutte le parti... :) Un must per gli amanti delle fermentazioni spontanee!!

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.
