Fantastic place and realistically probably the only opportunity you’ll get to taste some of the rarer Cantillon beers. Worth going with a group so you can work through a few 750ml bottles which are sold at very fair prices.
Wspaniałe miejsce i ludzie nie tylko tam pracujący ale także ci z każdej części świata, których można spotkać zwiedzając. Od razu po wejściu przenosimy się w czasie, zdecydowanie trzeba odwiedzić to miejsce chociaż raz. Cieszę się, że miałem tę możliwość i na pewno tam wrócę.
Such an excellent place with outstanding Lambics. There are not so many available beers, but every beer is really a masterpiece. The bottles are only 750ml, so you need a company to enjoy several beers. The self guided tour is nice, and you also get the Jonge Lambic when you finish it.
Great place for Lambics fans. We were lucky as many bottles were available for drinking inside. Coming as a large group is an advantage, since the prices for 0.75l bottles are high, so sharing is recommended. Unfortunately not many beers are available to take. Nice self guided tour. Must a visit.
I went there a long time ago with Cico, I went back to Brussels but I never took the time to go back. It was a really nice experience, we came just like normal visitors, even though the atmosphere and the experience were just really interesting, For a beerhunter, it is a place that you really have to visit, in this crazy city of Brussels, the area is a bit on the move.
When I was there I was with some big names of the Italian craft beer scene so we were hosted from Jean personally.. we got the chance to talk a lot with him and we had special bottles plus the "usual stuff " among them a gueuze 40 years old !!!! That said it’s obvious my visit was perfect and I soaked up entirely the atmosphere there .. but I’m pretty sure this place would deserve a rating near 100 even with a " regular " visit for the beauty of the building itself and quality of the beers .. thank you jean !!
Visited on a Thursday and Friday. Small and rather cool, located within easy walking distance from central subway or train stations. The interior has different parts, from a counter to order beer, another counter to buy bottles, to a small-ish area for drinking the beer, followed by the bottling machine and huge stacks of bottled beers to the restroom in the basement. It works, but seems random and makes it feel like you sit in the middle of something which doesn’t belong. Anyway, there was a good bottle list with some small pours available for the more regular beers. Also contained drink-in only beers and older vintages like Carignan or a Zwanze 2013. Prices are good. A place to stay in way too long...
