KEG Sörművház

KEG is a spacious craft beer bar in Budapest’s increasingly trendy Újbuda neighborhood. The place is just off Bartók Béla Boulevard, the main artery of the area, inside a remodeled brick-arched basement. Digital flap displays show the 32 (!) types of draft beers available, most of them sourced from local breweries. But you can also run into foreign beers such as a 15% ABV imperial stout from Denmark’s Mikkeller brewery. 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.

The crowd, similar to other craft beer bars, is heavy on men. Also, this being on the Buda side, there are more local patrons and fewer tourists than in comparable places across the Danube. Burgers are available to help prevent a hangover.
