Every brew is $4. No Matter What. That's cool.
On Lincoln Road, in the middle of touristic Miami, this place still has a local vibe inside, and a bunch of tables outside to people watch.
The selection is mid-sized, but it is quite different every time I visit. Don't expect any rare, mind-blowing beers at that price, but they carry a lot of craft brews and internationals, and most of the staff knows what they're serving. Beers on tap are served in plastic cups, a little bit of a let down.
I definitely recommend it if you're in the area.

Got to admit, for Miami, this really seems to be the only place catering to the beer community (other than Democratic Republic of Beer - but was unable to make a visit). With the limited options for good beer in Miami, had to rate this place in comparison to the general availability of quality beer in the city.
Location is great...right on Lincoln Road. Outside seating is available. The inside is rather small and narrow, maybe housing 20 taps and maybe 200+ different bottles. The selection is dominated by your basic lager imports, but the selection of American craft beer is decent, again given this is Miami. Prices were very reasonable as well.
Service, though attentive, had no knowledge of beer whatsoever, which was rather disappointing. They did have Old Rasputin on tap, which was great, but they served it in a frosted mug?
Overall, a decent beer bar, but great in comparison for what else is available in Miami. Worth a stop, and as said in other reviews, for the lack of a better spot. If nothing else, grab a decent beer and enjoy people watching on Lincoln Road.

A tiny beer bar tucked inbetween much more expensive restaurants and shops on the fun pedestrian Lincoln Rd in South Beach.
The inside is small and straight-forward. Small bar and a log table / bench in the back. Some outdoor seating. They don't take credit cards. The TVs were showing South Park, which only the bartender was watching. Someone requested that a college basketball game be put on; the bartender refused.
Selection is two big coolers of bottles, unfortunately dominated by imported lagers from SE Asia and Africa. Do we really need bottled Chang, Tusker, and 33? There were a couple of good bottles hidden in the mix. Huge lack of anything local. I realize Florida isn't known for beer, but there wasn't really anything from the entire Southeast region except for bottled Hurricane Reef lager and Terrapin India Brown.
The tap selection was very limited but included Indica IPA and Sprecher Black Bavarian. Unfortunately they were served in plastic cups.
The bartender was kept busy filling orders from tourists who were dissapointed that they were out of Stella. Oddly, I saw three separate people order Labatt Blue.
Worth a stop, if only for a lack of other options.

A true gem well hidden in the middle of the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall. Easy to miss, if you are looking at the storefronts, and aren't looking at the posterboards proclaiming 180 beers, all at $4 each.
Sparse but functional bar, with seating for about a dozen, and 20+ taps, including some real finds, such as Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA and Old Speckled Hen, and several coolers holding a fine selection of primarily east coast craft brews. the staff are knowledgeable, making good suggestions based on preferred style and what is fresh.
A welcome relief from the trendiness and expense of Miami Beach.

If there were a "Dive Hall of Fame," Zeke's would be in it.
Maybe 30 feet wide, noisy and packed with people, brightly lit, operated according to the owner's quirky house rules (a must, for a world-class dive), pretty much decor-free, offering take-it-or-leave-it, ho-hum pub grub, managed with manic efficiency by a team of mostly friendly bartenders, and surrounded by upscale establishments that view it disdainfully, Zeke's has it all.
Oh, and did I mention the beer? Fifteen taps and 180 bottles. And nearly all of them are $3 each. Domestics, imports, mass market swill, superb craft beers, German and Belgian rarities: three bucks apiece. Too expensive, you say? Well, they do have happy hours and daily specials.
Want to drink outside? No problem. Just walk out the front door, where tables and chairs on the Lincoln Road mall beckon. But you have to carry the beer out yourself (one of the house rules) and everybody in your party has to present an ID inside (another one of the rules).
So here's the deal: you get to drink world-class beers for $3 a pop while seated blissfully along one of the top people-watching avenues in South Florida. And smile at people seated a few yards away who are having $40 entrees and $15 martinis.
Does it get any better than this?
If you still feel like a pubcrawl afterward, the Hofbrau Beerhall at 946 Lincoln, is three blocks down. It's an outpost of the Munich brewery, serving four or five kinds of Hofbrau beer on tap and very good German food. Laid back and pleasant, the Beerhall is still considerably more expensive than Zeke's (but then, what isn't?).
Public transport: from Lincoln Road and Washington, about three blocks from Zeke's, Bus A from/to the Omni Metromover station in Miami, or bus W from/to the South Beach hotels (catch on Washington Blvd.) till 11:30pm or so. Bus 246, the NightOwl, back to the Omni station and the Dade Center Metrorail station at 11:45pm, 12:45 am, 1:45am, etc.
