Wow I feel so lucky to have been able to visit Cantillon. The mecca of guezes and lambics. Very old and rustic inside, you feel like you are stepping back in time. They offer a self guided tour with some samples at the end(I forget the price but it is very reasonable and well worth it). While going through the tour you get to see the equipment and materials used to make some of the most amazing beer on this planet. The barrel area is overwhelming with aisles of barrels stacked taller then a person. The tasting area has a few tables and a old rustic vibe about it that makes it so appropriate to drink the beers there. This is a definite destination for any serious beer traveler. i simply loved this place.

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.
