We did the brewery tour and then tasting. The tour was great. This isn't my favorite type of beer (more slightly sours, lambic, etc) but can't help but recognize the quality and the great staff and atmosphere. Worth checking out in Brussels.

Such a great place. Everything is done exactly as it was 100 years ago, the people are friendly, the tour is self-guided and the beers are phenomenal. I've only gotten to taste Cantillon twice in my life and it was so cool to be here in person- there is a quiet respect from everyone in the tasting room- they all... More

This Brewery will not disappoint, its well worth a $8 Euro to do the self-guided tour around the Brewery and the best bit after the tour you get 2 samples of the beer. Highly recommend going here,

Went along just to sit in the brewery and drink the beer. It was great. Cantillon make beautiful Belgian sour ales geuzes and lambics. The atmosphere is great. The beers are great. Perfect way to spend the afternoon!

This brewery tour is self-guided. You get a couple of minutes of introduction from someone who works there, then after that you walk around yourself with information provided in a booklet (we had an English version). Fun to walk around a proper working place, doesn't take a huge amount of time. Different to other brewery tours we have done, firstly... More

And it did not disappoint! 8 euro per person for a 1h15m tour and two tastings (a lambic and then either a gueze or kriek). Wonderful place and wonderful beer.

Not flash but you get everything about Cantillon brewery. Self guided tour, 2 taster beers at end. You can go just to drink beer or go on tour. Very interesting tour well worth the visit. Quite a few American beer geeks there!

Cantillon beers are among the best in Belgium. But I never knew you could visit the brewery. So glad I found out. The location seems strange now, in the very multi cultural area around the old Anderlecht slaughterhouse (great market there by the way!). But in the historic context it makes sense. It's like a relic from hundred years ago...... More

Some of the reviews here are just laughable. If you don't like Lambic beer why go to a place that only brews Lambic beers, and then slate it because you didn't like the beer? DUH! Like vegetarians going to a restaurant with STEAK HOUSE in huge letters above the door giving a poor review because they didn't want steaks. Brouwerij... More
