I've dreamed of visiting Cantillon and after a couple of failed attempts this past summer, I finally made it. It was everything I'd hoped an more.

The beer selection and quality is amazing. We split 750s of FF, St Lam and LP Kriek. It was my first time trying each. And we picked up St Lam, LP Gueuze and a few others to take home. And the prices? They practically give it away.

The atmosphere is awesome. It's filled with tradition and loaded with comfort. Between the small stove that heats up the table area and the barrels that you sit at, it couldn't be better. We skipped the tour but the walk to the rest rooms alone was probably all I could handle. Wow!

I feel I've now enjoyed one of the ten great wonders of the world (not just the beer world mind you). What a day!

A must for anyone who cares about beer, regardless of whether you like the style or not. The smells alone are worth the 7€ self guided tour fee. I was astonished at how inexpensive the bottles to go were. Friendly and passionate staff. My only disappointment was that I wasn't there on a Tuesday or Thursday, when they're brewing.

Not sure what I can add except my own experiences.

Took the train from Bruges here (highly recommended) and then made the short walk from the train station to the brewery.

The location leaves a bit to be desired. But who cares, this is a brewery, and the rent is probably cheap.

When we entered the place was super noisy, it was bottling day. We settled in for an unblended lambic, classic gueuze and a kriek. While sitting enjoying our beers, Jean stopped by with a couple of free glasses of the beer they were bottling, (Saint Lamvinus) a very cool and friendly gesture! Decided to just skip the tour, the one that left while we were there was packed any ways.

On my way out I was helped by the nice gentleman working the gift shop and grabbed a few bottles of Fou to take home.

As everyone knows, this is a must stop in Brussels, and Belgium for that matter.
