What a gem this is! Part museum, part brewery, part tasting room/bar, Cantillon is a must for any dedicated beer fan when in Brussels. After a brief introduction/ticket purchase, we made our way through the establishment, guided by signposts and brochures. Fascinating to see the old oak barrels, corked up for sporadic ventilation and with huge heaps of foam from the fermentation, spilling all over the top. Upon completion of our tour, we were treated to samples of the geuze, the kriek, the framboise and even some unblended lambic, as a bonus. We engaged in a stimulating and interesting conversation with the son of the family proprietor, and when he realized we were really interested in his product, we got to taste an exclusive "vos" (young lambic) sampling of the next batch of FouFoune, straight from the barrel. Really awesome service from great people carrying a great tradition. Oh, and did I say they were great? Because they were.

Sicuramente affascinante, "trasuda" storia da tutte le parti... :) Un must per gli amanti delle fermentazioni spontanee!!

One of the most interesting places I’ve ever been for sure. On your self guided tour you learn about how beer was made before modern brewing techniques. It isn’t only great because you’re seeing the instruments used, but the brewing is going on as you tour! For only a couple euro’s you can see a type of brewing that doesn’t happen anymore, and then at the end you get a glass of the lambic gueuze and the kriek right from the cask! Awesome.

The center of the geuze universe. Best to visit during the brewing season, which runs from November to March. Open brewing days at the beginning and end of the season are also interesting, but they get very crowded. The tour includes one beer (often a draught lambic), but you can sample many more if you like, and purchase bottles for consumption on premises or take away. Jean Van Roy really knows what he’s doing.addendum: with an apparent new policy of not offering beers like the Zwanze (for fear that it will end up on e-bay,unquestionably an evil act), I’ll have to downgrade my rating of this previously pleasant place to drink.

Certainly a worthwhile museum visit, where you get to taste a beer or two and talk to the staff after walking around the tiny lambic brewery on your own.

Un’esperienza veramente unica, un salto nella storia anche per chi non ama il lambic.

Cantillon, 100+ year old building, simple inside deco, very basic chairs, and an old charcoal heater, lots of cases, bottles, and some outstanding beers. Being there is an experience in itself walk back and check out the fermenters, etc, unique smell, old brick building with the nice fresh temperature even during the hot summers. Prices are more than fair. Spoke with some of the employees in French, very helpful.

I love the place obviously for the beers but they help with their kind attitude to understand the world of lambic......I’v been there last jan with my friends from Italy and enjoied so much Thanks....we’ll be back next summer...

Definitely a highlight of the trip. It was hard for us to find because we were determined to walk there, I’m sure a taxi driver can take you right there. We were shocked by how ancient everything looked, but it was explained that keep everything the same as possible to ensure the quality of the beer. This place would never be allowed to operate in the US, which is ashame. There cobwebs everywhere! But apparently the spiders keep the bugs away from the spontaneously fermenting beer. You can do a sampling of their beers at the end of the tour and buy their bottles, probably cheaper than anywhere else in the world.
