My friends and I just went to Cantillon expecting to do a tasting. We learned that we could not sit unless we were touring the brewery. When we went to do a tasting, we learned that we could only buy large glasses or whole bottles....More

I think we paid €7 per person. It included a brief explanation of the process and what they do at the brewery and why it’s different. (Full guided tours are available). And you are left to your own devices to walk around and see the...More

Firstly we love Cantillon beers! If you don't love the style or at minimum appreciate what they do then do not make the trek to the brewery. The brewery is in a less than appealing part of Brussels- we literally got in and got out....More

We walked - It is a bit off the beaten path. You could Uber or taxi though. If i remember correctly, there is a hop on hop off stop fairly near the brewery. Definitely worth the effort!
