The one must stop place on my list for my last DC trip and definitely worth it. The place had some of the oddest stuff I’ve ever seen on tap between the de Molen and Haandbryggeriet and obscure Canadian micros. The crowd is really strange, but the selection is pretty ridiculous and the food is pretty fantastic. Definitely a great place for a beer. Also can get 4oz samples of anything on tap.

best draft and bottle selection in dc. one of the better beer bars in the united states (probably top 3). fun crowd. good service. underwhelming food but focus should be beer. half-pours are standard. taps rotate frequently and many are small batches and esoteric. this is where beer needs to head in the US to be taken more seriously. we need to evolve out of the horse brass pub mentality.

Got here on a Thursday around 4:15. Took a seat at the bar and stayed until about 7pm. Had several 4 oz samples of some great stuff on tap, and got the charcuterie platter and a side of fries. Great service, good food, and a very nice beer selection. Hip after-work crowd, noisy but not unreasonable. The lighting is too low, as others have stated. Great place, and I look forward to a return visit.

I would have rated higher, but I was not a fan of the ambiance. Even in the middle of the day the lights were way down, giving the place a trendy bar feel, which I personally do not like. I understand the desired effect, but it feels out of place when compared to the many other well stocked beer-centric bars. Luckily it was not packed, or I would have rated lower... Otherwise, absolutely no complaints.

This place is amazing - if you can get there when it isn’t absolutely packed. The wait staff and bartenders are very professional and courteous, knowledgable of the beer selections as well. I really like the way the bar is set up, gleaming taps, with the most comfortable bar stools I’ve ever tried. The food is pretty good, though nothing to really mention. I love that they have two sizes of glass for the taps, plus all the cask ales as well! Great place - just wish it wasn’t so trendy right now.

This was the last place I hit on a recent trip to DC. I unquestionably saved the best for last. The draft list and bottle list were beyond exceptional, in fact , I think this may be the best beer bar in the US. As a point of reference, I’ve been to Monks, Eulogy, Brouwers, Uber, Brickskellar, Gingerman, Toronado etc. Our bartender, Jason (I think) provided perfect and I mean perfect service. He was always there with water and was always right there when we were ready to order our next beer. I liked how the beer lists were organized by flavor characteristics. Don’t miss this place if you are in DC.

I was utterly impressed by the number of tap handles - at least 50 - and the quality of craft beer they had on draught the night I was there (March 2010). And the bottle menu looked more like a book, simply amazing. It certainly didn’t ruin my image of Churchkey, as a great beer pub, that they were doing a Mikkeller Single Hop IPA tasting the same night, with 10 - ten - different Mikkeller IPAs on tap and Mikkel Bjergsø himself present! All in all, I found Churchkey to be the most impressive beer pub in Washington DC.

My favorite bar in DC. Great selection and atmosphere, tho a bit crowded. Always a few beers on hand pump.

Review just for ChurchKey. Walked upstairs to find a neatly laid out but small space with a long bar and lots of coolers. Tons of stuff I would have liked to try but I was just there for one beer. After asking the bartender he quickly confirmed on the beer menu and returned. The menu looked interesting but I didn’t eat. A bit pricy by my standards at least but not ridiculous. Looks like the world class beer bar it is.

Visited this place on Feb. 26 2010, with ArgoO, and let me tell you, this place is fantastic. It was a Friday night and the place was brimming and packed. After a certain time, and we managed to get a seat at the bar, which is a must....easy access to the barman. This is beergeek heaven, with everytap available in 4 on. samplers...rare stuff on tap! Food was on the expensive, and did not partake. A must.....a minus for the crowd! Its crazy packed.
