I’m a bit ashamed that I never visited this place before. But I finally got there and it was awesome. Cool old-school lambic ambiance, with a vibe that oozes the fanatical love for the wild beer craft. The selection was stellar, with quite a lot of really rare and special Cantillons. Good prices too. On top of it all, the crowd is really nice, everyone is enjoying and sharing their awesome bottles. Very good.

For every beergeek, this is the most important place to visit, when you’re in Brussels. You’ll meet some of the friendliest people, who have a real passion for their lambics. The atmosphere is amazing in this cozy place.


TO EVERYONE VISITING CANTILLON Give me a heads up, I’d love to hang out with a fellow RB to share some bottles. If you’re up for it, we can trade some beers as well!

Ambiance - On entrance you get hit by an intense smell of barnyard brett. Basically the same as if you smelt a freshly emptied bottle of their gueuze. The place is old and very rustic. The light’s dimmed. There’s plenty of people but in no way rowdy or loud. Plenty of old equipment and barrels. Being there with people who had already visited several times I did not go the museum tour but I will make sure to do so on my next visit to just taste the atmosphere. We sat down in the pub area which was a pretty big room with mixed furniture and some old equipment just standing around. A small store area and a small bar area. Plenty of people during both visits (with the second visit being at 10 am). Almost only international english speaking guests. Kinda touristy without losing its authenticity. Concentrated beer culture just seeps out of the walls.
Service - Very friendly and helpful.
Selection - our visit was off season if you want to hit the annual fruited releases so the store was mostly Gueuze, Kriek, Rose and Iris who still are great beers. For on-site consumption I was impressed to find two different Zwanze, d’Aunis, Carignan, Lou Pepes, vintage gueuze and of course the stuff you could find in the store.
Food - Not sure there is any. Didn’t look for any.
Value - Extremely fair both for on-site consumption and bottles to go. Especially considering second hand market prices. Most rare stuff was $15 a bottle for on-site consumption.
Additional comments - Extremely cool place. You need to visit to really understand. I’m sure I will do so many more times.

7 € for a on your own tour of the brewery with two samples include is very well spent money. Very reasonable (cheap) prices for tasting unique beer in the tasting room. Unfortunately only had one hour there before closing at 17.00. Bar closes around 16.30 or so. Excellent place. Will come back. Brewery located in a somewhat rough area I think. No gentrification has taken place it seems.

Probably my favourite beer place ever. Staff is always helpful and really friendly. Prices are as low as it gets. Lou Pepe 750ml bottle for €15 in the tasting area. Gueuze vintage 2007 for €20. If you buy bottles to go, you can not find it cheaper anywhere! Incredible prices! A good idea would be to go in a group or sit around the big barrel and start talking to people. On two consecutive days my friend and I managed to have different tastings with 4-5 people. Top place!

Great visit! Got to meet some massive beer nerds like myself and tasted some rarities! Only gueuze and kriek left to take away, which was a shame as I really wanted to grab as much Fou’ Foune as I could get my hands on. Best price on Cantillon you will find in Brussels - 15 euro for Fou’ Foune 75cl. Great little souvenir shopping as well. Get some Lou Pepe if you can!

Visited today. Didn’t visit the brewery itself cause I did that a few years ago and still remember a guided visit is realy interesting. First to see all the infrastructure but also to get some explanation. Now I just went to drink & buy some. Selection for drinking is nice but unfortunately only gueuze & Kriek is available per glass, the rest by 75cl bottle so it’s better to visit with a small group to share some. Maybe on a next visit I pick a table where they already started to taste a bottle and offer to share another one. Maybe they could offer a limited number of bottles to taste by glass (even if there were only 2 regularly changing... It’s a nice place to sit and enjoy a beer.

The pinnacle of sour stuff, nice trip to the past with the old equipment, all the barrels and nice to try een Jonge Lambiek. Rather rough area but close to station Brussels Zuid/Midi.
