Stopped by on a recent trip to Brussels. Its in a bit of a strange neighborhood, but easy to get to. You really step back in time walking in to the brewery. Its a very hands-on kind of place. You are free (encouraged) to tour the place on your own, take pictures, as questions whatever you want. Afterwards, you choose a few of their Geuze or lambics and just chill. Its something like 6 euro for the tour and tasting. You can also purchase additional tastings. You can buy any bottle for sale, at a great price - like 3euro for an 11oz bottle, t-shirts, glasswear, posters..etc. Super friendly service, super chill, very reasonable prices, considering how expensive they can be in the states, and just all around very unique and fun. Like most of belgium, they really take pride in what they make and it shows in the product and atmosphere. Do not leave brussels without having been here!

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.
