This is the mothership. Once you will enter Brasserie Cantillon, your life will never be the same and your love of beer will have grown deeper. The place is located in a little street and fits within the neighborhood. Once you enter in, you know you're in for something special. The first thing that gets to you is the smell. That smell is magical... Then, you have friendly people asking you what you are here for. You should then go visit the brewery and see how the lambic miracle happens. After that, it is time for your tasting. Ask all the questions you ever had and they will be answered kindly and professionally, possibly by Jean Van Roy himself. Enjoy the tasting and then some other Cantillon beers at ridiculously low prices if you live in the US.
You will leave that place transformed and a better person.

I had the privelege of visiting Belgium recently, one of the places that was top on my list to check out was Cantillon - I was fortunate enough to return for a second visit and really loved the tour and just how everything continues according to the traditional lambic method. To see this place is even better than I imagined there is so much history contained within the walls.
I felt the prices were so reasonable compared to anywhere else you can find Cantillon products and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. If you have the chance to make the trip I can't recommend Cantillon as they are a world class operation.

In an unassuming location on an under kept street off the touristy path lies the historic Cantillon Brewery, one of the last stalwarts of the traditionally done – and according to most, real - Lambics.
This is enough to instill a deep sense of reverence in just about anyone who loves beer – It sure had that effect on me – but what I soon realized was that once you step inside and see how humbly things are set up and how unconceited the workers go about pilling crates, inspecting fruit and serving their beer you can’t help but feel an enormous serenity and ease.
The whole place emanates a real, rustic authenticity the kind that can’t be fabricated:
The interior is modestly set up with dusty, dim lighted rooms filled with functionally laid out repurposed furniture; The drinks are served from a cask-fed mug; The prices are very affordable (on just about anything really); The servicemen are friendly and will attend to your queries in the most honest manner.
You can even take a valuable walk through the innards of the brewery AND have a couple of samples for a few Euros. You couldn't ask for anything more, literally. High recommended.
