    My sister will be heading to Brussels on Sunday and said she could stop at Cantillon to pick a few bottles up for me. Any chance anyone knows what they will have in bottles? I saw 50N 4E just came out, any chance any will be left?

    Thanks!

    Not sure if 50N 4E will still be around...however i saw here that FouFoune wasn't available for take-away.

    I'm sure there'll be something really nice, whatever the rarity (if you can't get FouFoune or 50N 4E), for sale.

    Not sure if you are into glassware, but these are currently for sale at the brewery:

    Fou foune isn't available right now. 50N4E should still be available. They might require you to buy a few other bottles before they'll sell you any.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll definitely tell her to grab me one of those glasses, and attempt to get some 50N4E.

    I picked up some 50N two days ago, you just need to get some regular stuff as well. Some lady asked for 12bottles and they said no. Good news for beer fans, bad news for mules.

    This may sound like a really dumb question, but are they cash only? Heading out there in a few weeks and Just want to be prepared.

    Thanks!

    Yes - they take cards

    I picked up 2 bottles of 50 degrees the week before last and had to purchase 3 bottles of the standard geueze with it - no hardship as I love Cantillon geueze but bear this in mind - 8 x 750 ml bottles weighs quite a bit !

    Any estimate on how long they will have this? Anyone want to trade me some in August? :)

    Does anyone know what bottles they currently have for sale at the brewery (on and off sale)? Particularly Fou Foune, any Zwanze, 50 degrees, Mamouche. Thanks!

    We drank the last bottle of Fou' Foune on Thursday, but they still had Zwanze 2012, 50 Degrees and Mamouche for on-site sales. The only one of those they were still doing take-away sales for was 50 Degrees, with no limit if you drank a few bottles in the tasting area first.

    Is there a place online where the brewery update what's available. I am visiting in September and would love to what I can take home with me. Also, guess since every time I've been to the brewery has been myself, wasn't aware about drinking a bottle onsite.

    None that i'm aware of for take-away. This thread is the best i've come across.

    For on-site, maybe try Untappd check-ins?

    As of last week they had only the kriek, gueuze, & Rose for takeaway.

    They did have some killer bottles for consuming on-site, including 50N4E, Zwanze 2012, & a few vintage things.

    When I was there on Tuesday, they still had bottles of 50n. You had to buy 2 other bottles for 1 bottle of 50n with a limit of 3. They also had LP Framboise, and I heard Fou' foune is releasing in a few weeks

    While I can't be disappointed after having some wonderful beer on tap & out of the bottles, a bit bummed we missed the Lou Pepe & 50N4E to go by just a few days!

    Just to be clear, that's the list for on-site consumption. When we were there most of the bottles on the board were not available for take-away.

    It's going to be difficult to just bring back 12 bottles!

    Going to be there 8/20 or 21-8/23. Recommendations on bottleshops? food? events? iconic landmarks or other experiences?
    Any other BAs want to meetup (local or on vacation like me)?
