Product description
Cantillon is something of a miracle. The Brussels-based brewery helped popularize spontaneously fermented wild beers called lambics, and blended lambics called gueuze. Its beer was once near extinction, but today is among the rarest and most revered liquids in the world. If you’re lucky enough to lift Cantillon to your lips, you’ll be sipping history. 

The company was founded by Paul Cantillon and Marie Troch in 1900. In 1937, their sons Robert and Marcel joined the business. Shortly thereafter, both brothers departed for World War II. After the war, with sales in decline, Robert sold his portion of the business to Marcel. Soon, Marcel wanted out, too. Marcel’s daughter, Claude, saved the family business. Her husband, Jean-Pierre Van Roy, took over the brewery in the early 1970s. Their son, Jean Van Roy, is Cantillon’s current owner and brewmaster.

A two-year-old lambic in which fresh HallertauMittelfrüh hops have been soaked. A perfect balance is struck between the lambic’s natural acidity and the Hallertau hops’ refined bitterness. 5.5% ABV.
