Cantillon Brewery visit

Cantillon? It’s a time machine. You’ll leave the modern civilization, goodbye to the noise, goodbye to the world. Visit a family brewery where Lambic, Gueuze, Faro and Kriek are made and where nothing has changed since 1900 when it was founded.

Red copper containers, barrels, some of them more than 100 years old, and walls of bottles constitute the scenery for your visit. Maybe you’ll be lucky to see the brewing or the bottling, maybe you ’ll see how barrels are cleaned or how fruit beers are made in summer. In any case, you’ll be able to taste a traditional Gueuze-Lambic, only brewed in Brussels, and listen to a colourful brewer telling you how it’s made.

Where we meet

The Van Roy-Cantillon family welcomes you and invites you to discover a fabulous world at the following address:
Rue Gheude 56 – 1070 Anderlecht.
