KOREAN BEER KID
I mean... Do I need to say anything else? A visit to Brasserie Cantillon is a must even if you are not a fan of lambic. Also known as Brussels Museum of Gueuze, this brewery is tucked in near the residential neighborhood just a little bit south of the city center. I have been to the brewery a few times already but even now when I see the big wooden door and the sign of the brewery, I get excited like a little kid at the candy store.
If you have never been here before, you NEED to check out the brewery, and I advise to actually read through the pamphlet since it gives you all the information you need. It's not fancy; actually it's quiet homey. Especially in the winter when they turn on the furnace in the middle of the tasting area. You will see lots of spider webs and dirts, but you will also see rows of barrels, huge coolship and amazingly traditional method that is being kept alive. Once you pay 6 euros (I believe, correct me if I'm wrong), you can a pamphlet and two pours once you are done with the self-guided tour.
FYI: These pictures are all taken all throughout my visits to the Brasserie. Some are relatively new and some aren't.
Once you have chosen your two pours, you can either leave or stay and enjoy some amazing beer. Menu always changes. On-site bottle list is usually amazing at the Brasserie: from older Gueuzes to fresher seasonal lambic, they definitely got a variety for everybody. You have a board full of beer you can enjoy until the closing. I just have one advice: BE NICE TO EACH OTHER, DON'T BE AN ASSHOLE. People at the brewery deal with thousands and thousands of visitors from around the world and would rather deal with nice people than people who complain all the time. Also do not go there close to their closing time to drink bunch of beers on-site. They simply won't let you do that. There are also influx of American tourists during the breaks around noon to 2 PM. Be sure to either be at the brewery by then, or avoid that time to avoid super busy crowd. They sure appreciate all your compliments, and Jean actually likes to talk about his beer when he has time.
