The last stop on the Drewbage around the Belgian country side in 3 days tour.

After a brief pop into the Delirium on my last night I decided I had to hit one last place and so I went in search of the famous Mort Subite.

What I found was a "clean" long room of long bench tables with chairs to share with everyone and busy waiters busting to clear through the space and bring you your beers.

Definately unlike any other place I was in. Feeling was a bit like a large ice cream palor with beer and cigarettes covering over the overt Victorian style.

A chance to try a fair range of the sweet Mort Subite "lambics" and well worth it.

This is a fantastic and really beautiful beer hall that's been in the family for three-generations (since ~1890). It's been at this location since 1910 and it looks as if all the fixtures are original! Even my wife, who doesn't drink, loved it. You don't see places like this in the US. It's densely packed with small tables just large enough to hold four beers and a few plates. Perfect for sitting with a group and enjoying some suds and grub. The staff was great. Brussels is very cosmopolitan and the people are used to non-tourist foreigners and make you feel at right at home (unlike some "other" French-speaking countries...). This place was no exception. It's a few minutes walk from Grand Place and worth a visit. I didn't eat here but the food looked plain but very good. The selection of beers was respectable (a dozen or so taps, plus bottles). I'm not a Geuze fan, but did enjoy my Orval. Definitely would put his on your list if you're remotely close.
