We visited Churchkey last summer with friends before heading downstairs for dinner at Birch & Barley. The beer selection was phenomenal. I canít imagine a beer selection being any better than theirs. The beer service staff was very good and knowledgeable. Iíd definitely head back any time Iím up in the DC area. Iíd say itís a bit overpriced, but I expected that so it wasnít a surprise.
The food at Birch & Barley was fantastic. The waitstaff was quick to offer a beer selection to pair with the food which was a huge plus. If you are looking for an upscale meal to go along with an excellent beer, you canít go wrong with Churchkey / Birch & Barley.

Great craft bar in the Logan Circle area of DC. Nice selection of rotating beers with 50 drafts, 5 casks, and 500 bottles. Thereís usually something for everyone on tap. Drafts and casks are available in full and taster pours, the latter is a nice option considering how many different beers there are to try. Bar and tables are all first come first serve, so get there earlier to secure a spot. Pretty good amount of bar space with comfortable chairs, tables along the wall can be a bit awkward getting in and out of. Bartenders are pretty helpful and attentive, table service is usually pretty good. They also host events several times a month, normally new beer tappings. Food is pretty good, the $7-8 hot plates are mostly smaller plates so you may want to double up on another item. Beer prices are about average for the area, no happy hour specials here.

Great place, wish I could have spent more time here. Very extensive draft list, even bigger bottle list. Knowledgeable people. Fair prices.

Stopped in while in DC for a conference. Very thankful I was able to get to stop by here - second floor bar with a huge draft list and super solid bottle selection. Enjoyed a cantillon and 3F if i remember correctly - in addition to many samples of solid draft selections - both limited and local offerings. Nice staff from what I encountered, would definitely go back next time im in DC. I always recommend this place to friends in the area. Solid.

Heaven. Itís a lot too noisy and often a little too dark. It lacks wifi (which is pretty weird given that half the place is on RateBeer half the time). But otherwise itís pretty much perfect. Best beer list Iíve ever seen in the US. Super-knowledgeable staff. Good (but not great and also pricey) bar food. Super mix of styles. Supports the local breweries. The best.
Update, 11/25/2013: ChurchKey has been open a while now and itís starting to show its age. The bathrooms need a substantial remodel and much of the seating, etc. is quite worn. (And did I mention the volume in CKDC is painful?) Now that Bluejacket is open, maybe these things will get done....

Excellent beer selection, nice space. Huge bar with efficient, somewhat impersonal service. Typical DC happy hour crowd, with a smattering of folks that actually know and care about what theyíre drinking.

Located in a cozy area of the American capital, full of pubs and restaurants, the Churchkey offers an impressive selection of local (mostly Virginian, but also a few DCj taps and a wealth of bottles. The staff are very friendly and ready to assist the cantankerous Ratebeerian with tjeir expert knowledge. I havenít tasted the food but it looks good. A little pricey but not more than ina. decent bar in NYC. Definitely a place to visit again!

Love this place. Massive long bar located upstairs from their restaurant. Superb tap selection and an excellent selection of bottles. Service is very friendly and helpful, also knowledgeable about the beers. Even the manager came out for a chat knowing that we were Ratebeer geeks. Would certainly return in a heartbeat given the chance.
