KEG is a spacious craft beer bar in Budapest’s increasingly hip Újbuda neighborhood. The place is just off Bartók Béla Boulevard, the artery of the neighborhood, inside a remodeled brick-arched basement.
Constantly changing digital flap displays show the 32 (!) types of draft beers available here. Most come from local breweries but you can also run into foreign beers like a 15% ABV imperial stout from Denmark’s Mikkeller. For those unsure what to order, KEG offers a tasting special where the bartenders (or you) select five 1 dl / 3.4 oz samples for €7.
KEG's crowd, similar to other craft beer bars, is heavy on men. Also, this being Buda, there are more local patrons (read: fewer tourists) than in comparable places across the Danube. A few kinds of burgers are available to help prevent a bad hangover the next day.
