Create an itinerary including Cantillon Brewery
Try a family recipe for Iambic brews at Cantillon Brewery, where beer has been brewed since 1900. The family-owned brewery has made beer the same way since the early 20th century, except for the addition of organic ingredients in 1999. The lambic is Belgium's specialty beer, which uses uncontrolled fermentation from local yeast varieties. The beverage that this creates sometimes looks foggy and has a sweet, smooth flavor. Learn how three types of lambic are brewed: kriek, faro, and gueuze. Taste one, or all, after a brewery tour. Individual tours are available at any time throughout the day, and the small admission fee includes a free glass of beer. Additional glasses of beer cost a few extra euros. Make Cantillon Brewery a part of your Brussels vacation plans using our Brussels online holiday planner.

  • 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.

  • Came in to Brussels late, so we didn't have time for the tour, but we headed straight to the bar for a bottle or two. The bar was lovely and the service was excellent. The beer was amazing of course and at 20€ for a bottle, well priced. The head brewer was there and very friendly. The best part was that the bottles and souvenirs to go were so well priced. They could charge way more but don't and that is so appreciated. I was able to get pint glasses for a few friends who were so excited!
  • The only long lasting lambic brewery in Brussels and they have a quality product. The tour is interesting and goes into a lot of detail. It is heavily oversubscribed, so there are too many people on a tour to make it comfortable, the rating at the end is excellent and it’s definitely worth the visit in Brussels.
