KEG is a below-ground craft beer bar in Budapest’s increasingly fashionable 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 nearly 30 types of beers on tap, most of them sourced from leading local breweries. This being the Buda side means there are more local patrons than tourists; burgers are available to help prevent a hangover.
