Cantillon is the only traditional lambic brewery located within the city of Brussels. Founded in 1900, today Cantillon operates both as a brewery and as a living museum, the Brussels Gueuze Museum. Cantillon uses 100% organic grains and hops in all of its beers. Cantillon brews traditional lambic products, using 65% malted barley and 35% unmalted wheat. Cantillon's beers are spontaneously fermented using a large coolship in the attic of the brewery and fermented in oak barrels.

Description: 50 Degrees North - 4 Degrees East is the general location of Brussels in terms of geo-coordinates (50°51′0″N 4°21′0″E). The beer was first released in 2007 with a brew date of 2005. This was the first wide-spread and commercial release of a Cognac lambic from Cantillon though there were other smaller bottlings including LH12 and Cognac Lambic. The second batch was released in 2013 the week following Toer de Geuze and was bottled in February 2012. The label notes that the second batch was aged in barrels from Grosperrin Cognac.
This batch, the fourth batch of 50 Degrees North - 4 Degrees East was brewed and barreled in November 2014. It was released in the spring of 2018 and was aged in Armagnac barrels rather than Cognac barrels.
