The top range Kriek was really good - surprisingly delicate sourness and complex cherry flavour. Same for the rhubarb. Everything else was decent without being notable apart from the Iris which was undrinkable. They’re ‘OG’ but there are far better modern sours now.

Also unfortunately let down by a rude server who misheard me and decided to angrily ‘correct me’ unnecessarily. He might benefit from a hearing aid.

Lambic and guese beers are the best and this is nirvana for lovers of such. The self guided tour is cool but the 3 tasters are even better. Full pours also available. You don't have to take the tour in order to visit the bar. Great stop before your train departs, not far from the station.

When I landed in Brussels via train I went straight to Cantillon for a lunchtime beer with my friends. It is an absolutely perfect location for an afternoon beer.
You enter through the brewery doors- there is a reception where you can book a tour but we didn’t do this. The building is an active large brewery, really amazing.
The bar is upstairs and has a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. There are a couple of beers on tap but mostly by the bottle. We had a bottle of the gueuze and a bottle of the magic lambic. Seriously great beer. Most beer between 15-30€ for a 75cl bottle.

For beer drinkers Centillion is a must. Not in the best part of town but the place for a lambic experience.

Cantillon is a local family-owned brewery in Brussels. It is a great place to learn about the brewing of world-renowned Belgian beer. From the relatively small workshop, visitors can have first-hand encounter of how hops and barley are prepared, processed and fermented inside the wooden cask. There are also chances for visitors to sample three types of local brews. Very enjoyable time that should be added to any trip to the Belgian capital.

Extraordinary that a place such as this still exists - given the move to mass market production. Special lambic beers, not to everyone's taste but do give them a try !

We took a tour around the brewery, was very intresting. We are just do fastinated by all natural process and spontanous fermentation process that is happening in Cantillion!
We tried many diffrent beers from all around the world and nothing taste like beers from Cantillion.
Especially the Kriek: that is just a lambic and 20% fruits is outstanding, nothing to compare to other beers that are adding sugar, syroups etc.

Short and sweet brewery tour and tasting. Chap on reception was very welcoming for our self guided tour. Unfortunately, the wrong time of year to see any brewing but that didn't spoil it. Its situated in a dodgy part of town but easy to find. Good value for 7 euros if you are over that way, not worth a journey out of town.

The brewery and the beer making process was very interesting. The beer itself was not my "cup of tea" as I think we are used to lagers.
