|About these ratings|
When it comes down to it, a trip to Brussels isn't complete unless you've sampled the chocolate and the beer. In order to knock the latter off your list, head to the Musée Bruxellois de la Gueuze, known simply as the Cantillon Brewery. Cantillon has been brewing traditional Lambic beers since 1900, and today, it is the only remaining Lambic brewery in Brussels. During your tour you'll learn about the brewing process and, if you plan ahead, you can even attend a public brewing session to see the action first-hand.
A TripAdvisor user says: "The smell and scenes are so original … and the staff so enthusiastic about their beer. The tasting at the end brings it all together and at 6 Eurus for the whole visit is very good value."
Located just outside the western section of the Inner Ring, the Cantillon Brewery invites you to visit its facility every Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The brewery is also open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tours (which include tastings) cost about $6 USD (€5 EUR) per person, but you must reserve your spot in advance.
