This was one of the main stops on our 5 day beer pilgrimage to Belgium. It was very very interesting to look around the brewery. Bar service wasn't great from the chap with the ponytail but I imagine they keep him out back in the...More

A nice small brewery with tasty beer for lambic / sour beer fans! Only had time to try one beer (gueuze) before catching my train, but another traveler told me the self-guided tour was worth it! The only qualm I have is that the older...More

You probably already know the beer is some of the best in the world so I won't go into too much detail. There is a small bar to order glasses or bottles for consumption on site. There are relatively few tables so get there early...More

It was really fascinating learning about a different (original) way of making lambic beer. I love how authentic the place was, no front of house tour guides no museum pieces, everyone who you interact with works there primarily to make beer and sell beer. All...More

I booked my first ever trip to Brussels and, as a craft beer lover, one key reason was so that I could visit the Cantillon Brewery. I had high expectations that were needlessly dashed, which meant that I had one drink and left. I was...More

If you are a fan of Belgian beers, and Lambic in particular, this place is a must. The tour is self guided but that is ok, then you get to do it at your own pace. The best part is of course the sampling of...More

My wife and I visited Cantillon on our trip to Brussels. It was one of the highlights, really. The beer, particularly the Lou Pepe varieties, are phenomenal. Be aware, these are sour beers. So if sour and fruity aren't your thing, then keep on moving....More

It's not the sort of neighbourhood where you would want to leave your rental car behind, even if you can find a parking spot. Try going by train. It's only a short walk from Brussels South station.
