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.

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.
