Default Cantillon Brewery Pics from Belgium

Man, this was a great trip. The first stop was Cantillon Brewery in Brussels. It was a quick 20 minute tour and at the end we sampled some nice lambics, gueuze and a tasty kriek.

Enjoy (my camera skills stink, but you get the idea)

Wow...that "museum" looks like an old thrift store. I guess I always have this romantic vision in my head of these old stalwarts, but they're rarely accurate. My luck, Abbay Rochefort is probably a metal warehouse .

See those crates? That's what I want for my bottles. Awesome design. I'm gonna steal it! Now I just need a branding iron with my as-yet-undesigned logo on it.

Just goes to show that you don't have to have millions invested in equipment to create great beer.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Cantillion is an awesome place to visit. I just wish I could have been there when they were brewing. I'm sure you feel the same.



Where else did you go in Belgium?

We only did two brewery tours while in Belgium/Netherlands. We did Cantillon and the t'ij Brewery in Amsterdam.

BUT, we did hit up some sweet bars. Delerium Cafe in Brussels was outstanding w/ their 2000 beers available. Guy looked at us funny when we asked for the 'menu.' It was about the size of a dictionary.

Also went to Brugge and drank at Cambrinus (Brugs Beertje was closed). The Golum in Amsterdam was a cool little place right across from this kick ass beer shop The Cracked Kettle.

It was about 6 days of just drinking tasty Belgium brews. Best trip I ever took.

Chris - great post, I am a student doing study abroad in London right now and will am making a trip to Brussels 4 days / 3 nights starting the 25th of October. I am going to try to taste as much beer as I can and I just may have to look that place up that you mentioned.

I missed Cantillon on my trip, but it's at the top for the next visit.
