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!

Cute little place and interesting tour. The guide brocheures were accurately translated into many languages including Japanese. While I canít complain much about the beer that they had - I mean, itís freakin CANTILLON - I was hoping for some of their rarer specimens, which were all unavailable at the time. Nice people - one of the guys there let me try some of their Faro poured straight from the jug, having been completed the day before. Doesnít get too much fresher than that. Carry a good map with you, as it was a little confusing for us.

You canít go to Brussels without paying a visit to Cantillon. I went twice during my two weeks stay in Belgium. Once for the tour and once to buy some more bottles for my hotel room. Both times I was greeted by the brewer (son), a real passionate with stories to tell. The tour is fun. About 1 hour if you take your time. They give you a step-by-step booklet/guide and you visit at your own paste without a human guide. Pretty cheap too and you even get beer samples at end (served by the brewer himself, at least that was the case for me). The bottle shop has only what is being bottled or was recently bottled. They donít keep any vintage stuff. The bottles are ridiculously cheap though.

This is one of my favorite breweries and to have been able to visit it was amazing. I just wish I could have taken a barrel or two home with me. We were there on an open brew day and had a guided tour that was great. The samples and bottle were cheap and they had plenty to go around. This will be a place I visit everytime I come to belgium.

Not much of a museum but an interesting working brewery. 4 Euro entry fee includes a self-guided tour and two beers. Thousands of aging bottles and casks are on display. The brewer didnít have time to talk but was friendly enough to great me. His young assistant was very friendly and helpful as well, but he seemed not to know his product or not to like lambic; I am not sure which. Very cheap Cantillon for sale here.

You donít have to be into lambics to appreciate this piece of brewing history. Youíve got to see the open-air vat so you finally have an image to associate with spontaneous fermentation. And sometimes I think all tours should be self-guided. The level of attention paid to your questions depends on how busy they are.
