Visited last week in May when in Brussels for the day. Only lambic brewery I have ever visited and I was very impressed. It is a self-guided tour for 6 euro which includes two samples at the end of the tour. They have an English pamphlet in addition to other languages (sadly, I didn't catch which) that explains each room. I'm also a home brewer, which helped in my understanding the process a bit more but I found it fascinating. There was a good amount of activity in the brewery even though it wasn't season where brewing was taking place.

If you like lambic and are interested in speaking with brewers that take pride in traditionally brewing it I highly recommend. Cantillon adds no dextrose or sucrose to sweeten as some of the other larger lambic breweries and they take pride in it. The location is near a metro stop, it's easier to find if you know which exit to leave from to head toward Rue Ghuede and there's a map on their website which is helpful.

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.
