Cantillon Brewery, the only remaining brewery in the city of Brussels, is a wonderful place to get a taste for traditional Belgian brews such as lambic, gueuze, faro, and kriek. Cantillon was established in 1900 and besides their recent efforts to go organic, their brewing methods remain virtually the same as they were 100 years ago. Large copper vats, oak barrels, and glass bottles line the walls of the brewery making you feel like you have stepped inside a time capsule and for the most part you have. Much of the equipment used today dates back nearly 100 years. For a fee, guests are allowed to roam the brewery on a self-guided tour and are given a free drink at the end to top it all off. Beer aficionados and historians alike will surely enjoy a trip to the Cantillon Brewery!
