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.

sayravai  (103) Helsinki, Finland | July 29, 2005
An absolutely unique brewery - like going back a century! Hundreds of old oak barrels, cobwebs everywhere,... A sourish "lambic" aroma floated into our noses the second we stepped in. You get used to that quickly, and in these surroundings even I loved every Cantillon brew I tasted there (gueuze, kriek and lambic). The tour was "do-it-yourself" with a leaflet, but that was just great as we had time to carefully go through each room. Itís great to see a family-owned and -run brewery that uses old brewing methods, and even bio malts. A must for anyone going to Brussels!

Absolutely incredible. Maybe my favorite stop in all of Brussels. Just utterly fascinating to see how this most traditional of all lambics is brewed and the staff is very friendly, patient and informative. A true family operation. Highly recommended.

Yeah donít miss this place. Asking for beers not on display by name usually results in them appearing (Cuvee des Champions, Derniere Cuvee de 89 for me). Go there with Jacob if you can - damn you Jacob!

I can only back up all the previous ratings of this very special brewery. To see a brewery that hasnít changes for ages is quite unique. And all these barrals of lambic just make me drool. Was there on a lazy wednesday afternoon with my s.o. Van Roy was busy, so he didnít have much time for the very few guests, but what the heck. The beers he served was just great. This brewery canít be recommended enough.

My experience at the Cantillon Brewery was one Iíll never forget. Self guided tours through paradise, with the entire family present and the entire spectrum of Cantillon lambics available for purchase. Iíll be back, many times.

Absolutely charming brewery - I agree it felt very rural, and I couldnít believe it was a real life working enterprise - it looked so traditional. The samples are delicious, the bottles cheap, and the staff friendly. I had a bit of trouble finding it, but it was worth the trouble.
