A dream come true. I was beside myself as I walked the self-guided tour. Really hard to believe that this is the actually brewery for all of those wonderful lambics and geuze they put out... it had a charm to it like a preserved frontier cabin, even felt like it was set up and somewhat of a facade, but man, itís the real brewery. Had to get a shirt and a few bottles while I was there... arrived at around 9am to do the tour and tried some good (although young) samples of their standard fare: geuze, kriek, iris, as well as a small sample of the kriekenlambik which was to be offered at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation the next day. My hopes were high to get some rare bottles, but the only thing found was Cuvee des Championes. Still, a wonderful visit, a place to bring folks to visit with you when over again.

What a great place to visit and a fine choice for my introduction to Belgium. I arrived in Brussels at around noon on a Tuesday, checked-in and promptly sauntered down to Cantillon. I hadnít expected (stupidly) for Brussels to be so difficult to navigate so it ended up taking a bit longer but I guess in turn I got to see a bunch of derelict neighbourhoods. :) The self-guided tour is ok. I guess itís kind of fun to just walk around on your own at your own pace. I love how dirty this place is and all of the cool old equipment. The trap door/hook/noose thing is kinnd of neat too. All of the take-away bottles are so crazily cheap - I would have bought some but I didnít feel like lugging them around for several weeks. I might just have to go back!

Very dusty and dirty brewery, but coasy. The celection was incredable, but that was becours I was there with Jacob LÝvenlund who know the brewer, and we then got beers that was not out yet and some that were very old. I didnīt realy like the beer, but it was interresting.

this is a definate. to see the open fermentation beds and the dirtiness is unbelievable (complettely different from most breweries). large cool oak barrels full of beer. nice tasting afterwards. a real treat.

Hoser  (162) Cowtown, Alberta | January 22, 2006
The thing I find interesting about this place is the whole city of Brussels seems to be under construction and that stuff in a bottle of Cantillion is wild yeast from all that construction. An interesting visit to a hallowed ground that must be done. Spider webs and cats are cool. Just donít tell them you are Canadian or you will hear a seemlingy endless tirade about the Ontario liquor board.

The brewery itself is traditional and worth a visit for a beer fan but itís not the most interesting one Iíve seen and it doesnít feel like thereís been a serious attempt to make it interesting for the average person. The tasting session after is worth the admission and there are decent size samples of several of the easier to acquire beers. Brewery merchandise is interesting and thereís a good selection of the beers and fairly reasonable prices, but thereís not really anything on sale that you wonít find elsewhere. On the day I visited the draught lambic was not on sale, which was disappointing.

hughie  (25) Bedford, England | August 27, 2005
Itís in the gritty working class district of Anderlecht. The street is shabby and potholed. You go through an uninviting little door into a different world. They let you wander round unaccompanied, savouring the sights, sounds and smells. The ceiling is cobwebbed, beer froth trickles from barrels onto dusty floors, the air is full of the heady aroma of malt and hops. The young man at the desk is immensely knowledgeable and incredibly enthusiastic. Just one disappointment: only five beers available for tasting and purchase on the day I went there. This is an essential place to visit if youíre in Brussels.

Absolutely awesome. Such friendly people, willing to talk for a long time about lambic whilst you sample their wonderful brews. Great tour, and a great place!

Absolutely worth the travel!! Itís a bit outside the center of Brussels, but when you go inside the brewery and museum itís wonderful! You can walk around in the brewery at your own. You can also buy the Cantillon beer and glasses for a good price.

The must in the Brussels - even non-beerdrinkers. They sell their own beers there too (very low price). After a self service tour you get a sample of kriek and gueuze.
