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!

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.
