The tap beers at KeBeer are cheap, and the decor positively medieval.

This week, Counter Culture surfs Brighton Beach on a wave of foamy beer. The beer garden in question is called KeBeer, and it's one of those indoor beer gardens that have become standard in New York City. The selection of tap beers is mainly German, though bottles of Belgian, English, and American beers are available, among others. All prices are so sub-Manhattan, it's worth it to train out there, if you don't live in the vicinity already. The food verges on the superb, and is broad-ranging for a beer garden, including Uzbek, Russian, Georgian, Israeli, and other Middle Eastern fare. Forge onward for some tasty pix.
