The Cantillon Brewery - perfect for beer lovers in Brussels
The Cantillon Brewery is one of Brussels's most popular attractions and it's just ten minutes' walk from the Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi and close to the Gare du Midi, Brussels' main railway station.
Founded in 1900 by the Cantillon family, the brewery specialises in the production of lambic beers - a type of beer, produced by spontaneous fermentation - including Gueze, Kriek and a range of fruit beers. The Cantillon Brewery still uses traditional brewing methods to produce its beers and organically grown cereals to ensure they taste as natural as possible.
Take a tour of the Cantillon Brewery
The Cantillon Brewery is one of the only remaining traditional breweries in Belgium, but it's also a living museum. You can take a brewery tour to see the granary, original brewing machinery, traditional beer barrels and stacked cellars, and you may also be able to see brewing or bottling in progress while you're there.
When you visit the Cantillon brewery - part of which is also known as the Brussels Museum of Gueze - you'll also be able to taste some of the wonderful beers produced there, so make sure you stay in the nearby Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi, so you don't have to worry about getting around after your tour.
