Located just next to the Galeries Saint-Hubert, name of the brasserie A la Mort Subite ("sudden death") may not seem so peculiar to those who know the beer of the same name. The brasserie, however, existed well before the drink.In around 1910, on the same spot was an establishment called La Cour Royale, run by Monsieur Théophile Vossen: his place welcomed the workers from the national bank just next door who passed the time playing the game 421, in which the loser of the game is declared "dead". When time was short, they played one last game played in a single go, hence the name mort subite or "sudden death". Soon enough, this name became popular and Mister Théophile Vossen renamed his establishment “A la Mort Subite”. Giving the name to the beer was the next step, which he gladly took.The tradition is preserved by his great-grandsons, who still serve gueuzes in this now listed building.
