Magnificent place. Cheap solo-tours of the brewery where you can would around the filled wooden casks and experience the unique yeast composition in the air. A cheap little ’bar’ where you can buy bottles and small (20cl) samples. If you’re lucky, you might have a little gem on site (I was!).

Countbeer  (258) Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, Netherlands | June 6, 2011
I had great expectations and was really looking forward to visit the Cantillon Brewery. We were friendly guided our way inside where we could store our bikes. Got a small intro-talk about the brewery, walked through the brewery and ended at the point of beginning. Without asking we got a Gueuze, which is nice but strange. Next I asked for a Faro and Kriek and they were looking at me if I asked them something really strange and asked me with if I wanted a Faro and Kriek. This hit me with some amazement but still, I friendly thanked them and enjoyed the beers. The  Vigneronne and FouFoune were sold out, they had no Lou Pepe’s and worst of all they had 10 bottles of Mamouche left and didn’t even sell one to go. I asked the brewer and his wife several times, and the answer was no. The brewer told me something like: ”I have 10 bottles left and don’t sell any of them to take home, you can try one here”. I told him it was impossible to drink the entire bottle by myself and that I would like to enjoy a bottle with some friends. He told me: “no I won’t sell it!” I understand that some beers are sold out, but not wanting to sell a beer that is still available makes me wonder why… A brewer does want to sell his beers, right? I was really confused, also since a new batch of Mamouche was almost ready to be shipped out! I was stunned by his reaction and attitude (didn’t let me finish talking nor was he listening to me) that in all my excitement I more or less forgot to order a bottle just to have a glass. They also said that they didn’t have any bottles of Faro, but when I asked for a Faro it was poured from a bottle, strange. Clothing is really cheap, shirts and longsleeves are between 13 euro and 17 euro and a hooded sweater was around 35 euro. They also sold some coasters, posters, glasses and other memorabilia. All by all an interesting visit but I was really disappointed with the service and items they had for sale.

A must see brewery not far from the train station. Cantillon beers are amazing and it’s great to show yourself around on the self guided tour. The open fermentation vessels being a major highlight for me! : ) Particularly good on the open brew days.

Just a short walk or metro ride from the center to arrive at this amazing brewery. Roaming around on the self guided tour is great. Followed by enjoying some excellent Cantillon’s at the bar area. A must visit.

One of the best and original lambic brewers, provided you like original lambic. A great place to meet beer enthusiasts. I always try to visit them whenever I happen to be in Brussels.
The staff is always friendly (or at least, every time I’ve been there) and there is quite a nice list of beers to sample or buy. Only, availability of some of the beers can be limited sometimes as they don’t (and cannot) brew everything all the time. So for me that’s a good reason to revisit when I can.

A must-visit when in Brussels. You’ll find it interesting even if you don’t like the beer. Take your camera.

A must do for anyone visiting Brussels. By far the most easy accessible Lambicbrewery, be it so tht they do not make he most accessible beer. Beer’s great, though!

A self guided tour through the brewery makes Cantillon a must stop. The fact that you get to drink lambic in the tasting area for dirt cheap makes it that much more enjoyable. You won’t get to drink Cantillon (both the regular offerings and some rarities) for cheaper anywhere else. On my first visit I enjoyed a 10euro Pinot D’Aunis 750ml. My second visit a 10euro Mamouche 750ml. The lineup is constantly changing, so its tough to know in advance what will be available (perhaps the only downside). Easy to spend two hours here talking to Jean and drinking the best.

Visited March 17. We started the tour early on a thursday. Few people and a brewing day. Super. Chatted with the brewer while taking the tour. Super atmosphere, cool to watch all the barrels with the liqiud gold! plus all the mildew and the cobweb, nice! Came back the next day to fill up the car!!! Got serviced by the brewer and got to try some more of the beers. Excellent experience.
