Been here a half dozen times and can’t wait to go back. There is just something special about this place. Self guided tour...unless you get there during a brewing time, which is reccomended for sure. Very nice staff(family owned and operated). The beer for sale is generally garden variety, but I did pick up some Cantillon 50ºN-4ºE last time.

Went on open brew day, Mar 2008. Had the full guided tour - from someone whose family had been in Cantillon for at least 3 generations (but quite whom he was I don’t know). Spoke more about the spirit, the feeling, the life and the quintessence of lambic than the lifeless facts and figures. Lovely guy. ’There is no such thing as alcohol-free beer, that just does not make sense’ really made us smile. Only 2 unusual beers for us, but we’re quite well served in Pikkulintu and One Pint Pub in Helsinki. It is an obligatory stop for any beer lover - this place exudes the soul of traditional beer making.

Hard as hell to find, parking sucks, neighborhood is a bit dicey, but this is a must see in Brussels. Like a time machine, this place takes you back to the original beer brewing process. This place would not be allowed to exist in the US - tight, dangerous staircases, dusty rooms, cobwebs - the ultimate in atmosphere. You’ll be hit or miss on what beers you can buy, but the chance to try their Faro is worth the trip plus you can be amazed walking by all the bottles of Cantillon beer. I would recommend using GPS to get there and still you need to keep your eyes open.

Amazing experience. Old fashioned, original & superb. Missed being able to taste some of their rarer beers but OK. Only got their normal selection for sale (5-7) Still got the highest respect for these fellas!

A wonderful museum - the sights and the smells of this dusty brewery really take you back in time. Service is very friendly and knowledgable. Also, it was the first time I tried Cantillon beers (or any real sour lambic), and the experience was amazing! I also had a straight Oude Lambic, even though at first the guy at the counter was quite concerned I’m not up to it (’’Are you sure? It has a very special taste’’). He seemed to be more satisfied when I assured him I know what I’m talking about. The unblended Lambic was actually really great! Too bad that at the time I was there they only had Iris, Gueuze, Rose de Gambrinus and Kriek - although all sold very cheap. I got all of them to take home plus a glass and a poster.

Took the tour while in Brussels. Great, knowledgable staff, and theyeven shared a special Cognac barrelled lambic with my friend and I. Like walking through history! Not too many available beers though.

Talk about some sketchy parts of town you need to walk through to get to Cantillon.. but oh is it worth it!! You walk in, and the sights and smells take you back to the last Cantillon you drank.. musty, dusty, oh-so delightful!.. after a glass of Oude Lambik, diabel, our celebrity tour guide, gave us a wonderful tour and insight into the brewing and blending processes.. too bad we couldn’t just tap into some of those barrels to see how the beers are doing. It’s awesome how they’ve done everything in their power to keep all the furnisings/fixtures original.. all the way down to the ceiling tiles! Everyone working there was uber-friendly and accomodating. I wanted to try the Faro, but it wasn’t available. If you like beer, you must go here if you’re in Brussels!

I was able to travel there for open brew day a year ago. The brewery was everything I had hoped it would be. I didn’t want to leave. By far, my most favorite place to visit in Belgium.

AWESOME! My favorite part of Brussels on my visit. Was pretty ignorant about lambics until this tour...great experience. They offer tastings after touring the brewery and thoroughly explain what goes in to making these beers...highly recommended, obviously. Get ready for the whiff of funk as you walk in the front door....

What can you say about this place that hasn’t been said before? Surprisingly busy when I was in, with two or three tour groups making the rounds while I was in. Great tour and a chance to pick up Cantillon for about half the price it is in North America. You won’t find any of the rarer stuff, but be sure to try the Cantillon Faro.
