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 couldnít just tap into some of those barrels to see how the beers are doing. Itís awesome how theyíve 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 wasnít available. If you like beer, you must go here if youíre 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 didnít 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 hasnít 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 wonít find any of the rarer stuff, but be sure to try the Cantillon Faro.

What a historic place to visit. Unfortunately they were not brewing. Cant create this sort of ambiance if you tried. Selection was limited but tour was informative. Must stop

Totally awesome place to visit. Interesting for anyone interested in beer whatsoever. The character of the building is incredible. The tour guide was pleasant, and you could tell that everyone there was passionate about what they do. They only had a few beers available, but come on, itís Cantillon. There is no going wrong. A must visit

This tour is a must if youíre near Brussels. Highly informative and endlessly interesting. The whole brewery gives off a majestic air. The folks providing information are very friendly and knowledgable, and the small seating area is a great place to enjoy their wonderful beers.

This is a must visit in Brussels. They were right about the Museum part. This place is very old and is like walking back in time. As a home brewer it was amazing just to see a brewery operating on such old equipment. The people there were just supper friendly. It was amazing to talk to the people there because they are all family and just have such a passion for brewing lambicís in a tradition style. The only bad thing was that when I was there the selection of beers was limited because they were waiting on the new batches.

Awsome!!! This was a great tour, self guided so you can start whenever you want (cost 4 euros). The tour guide booklet is great, with some nice details as you walk through the brewery and check out the actual equipment used to make Cantillon lambics (took me a little over an hour). I was greated by the brewer/owner- a Cantillon himself, his grandfather started the brewery. Incredible service, as I was getting my 2 tastings included with the tour one of the workers recomended what bars I should check out in Brussels. The only issue was the lack of selection, they just have what they currently have, for me in August it was the Bio Gueuze, Iris, Kriek, and rose de gambrinus (frambroise). I asked if they had the Fou Foune (apricot) and they said that they just bottled it last week and it wouldnít be ready for 3-4 months. I asked Mr. Cantillon if I he would sell me some Fou Foune if I promised to let it age, he said sure, went back and grabbed 2 bottles for me and slapped lables on by hand, where else do you get that service! This is not corporate, the brewery is so old school and so awsome!!! Of coarse I got bottles of everything, you canít beat these prices. You have to go here if your in Brussels!
