Went with a group of friends on a stag do and it's a must for genuine beer enthusiasts. The guided tour was an extra €50 but was so informative and the highlight of our visit. It was the guy who runs the brewery that took us around and his knowledge and passion for this small family run business were clearly evident. The beers are very reasonably priced to buy at the shop but sadly I was flying and couldn't take any back. Sour beers like this aren't to everyone's taste but even if they're not your favourite it's still a very interesting brewery to visit.

Firstly this place is difficult to get to. Its very out the way and located in urban Brussels. The tour was very good and detailed well worth the €7 p/p. Thee tour lasted just over an hour and you get a free drink at the end (we did not like the beer so we discreetly left it on the counter). I would recommed this to any interested into authentic brewery's.

Neat old Brewery with a tasting room. A bit out of the way, but they offer a scenic map to follow that also takes you by a lot of other sights to see. Friendly staff, self-guided tour, tasty beers at a cut-rate price. If you're a craft beer lover or home brewer you should NOT miss this place.

The tour is great, I love that it is self-guided. Cantillon has the most amazing lambic. The two tasters at the end is a very nice ending of the tour. They also have bottles for purchase, as well as glasses, t-shirts, cheeses etc.

I brew my own beer at home, and this is nothing like what I am accustomed to. The gentleman we met at the door was very knowledgeable about the Lambic process, and being allowed to wander though a working brewery is unique. The tasting at the end of the tour is good, but be prepared for flavors to which Americans are probably unfamiliar. The prices in the tiny shop are very reasonable. We found this place at the end of a walking tour of Brussels via Google at http://www.cantillon.be/br/ww/promenadeLambicGB%20Nov09.pdf. It starts at the Grand-Place and leads to the brewery. Great way to spend the afternoon!
