Cantillon Brewery, Brussels

4.0
#1 of 8 in Breweries & Distilleries in Brussels
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.
