I’ve been on brewery tours before looking at stainless steel vats creating mass produced lagers but this is something else. The brewery is pretty much a working museum with all the classic machinery still being used. You can really get up close with all the...More

Cantillon is a unique brewery, the only one remaining that brews “Lambic” ales, which are those to which yeast is not added by the brewer, but is absorbed naturally by the brew from the air in the brewery - known as wild yeast. Once all...More
