Visited July 2011.
Stopped in right around happy hour time so the place was filling up fast, which made things miserable. This was during a heat wave and it had been a while since Iíd been in DC (or anywhere on the east coast) and forgot about the 99% humidity thing. Couple that with 200 people crammed into this place and things get uncomfortable real fast. Despite all that the selection here is really good. Tons of new things that I had never tried as well as lots of good beer, both in bottles and on tap. My major regret was ordering from the cask. Holy crap. I think people confuse room temperature with cellar temperature. It was 100 degrees in the bar as well as in the cask. It burned my mouth to drink that glass. That was compounded by the fact that it was a Pratt Street beer... Anyway, the service was friendly and the prices were a bit high. I need to stop back in when itís not the middle of July and during the after work rush.

I was lucky enough to check this place out in April and was treated to a great selection of beers. Nice atmosphere although could get a bit crowded during busy times. Staff was friendly enough. I will definitely get back some time.

Interesting setup on second floor. Seems small when you first walk in, but it was packed with people in the back too. Really good selection of beers, including locals one offs. Expensive, but thatís to be expected. The bartender was nice and fast, even with so many people. Well worth a visit.

Awesome place! Was here several times during CBC. Awesome selection, especially during the event, and a stellar bottle list. I never ordered any food, so I didnít rate it. I nibbled on an appetizer here and there and they were tasty. Bartenders seemed knowledgeable. Prices seemed high to me, but Iím not from the big city. Probably on par or good for DC. A definite stop if youíre in DC.

Damn this place is amazing! Beer selection is the best in DC hands down. Bartenders are very friendly and knowledgeable and are very generous with the free samples. very low lit dim shotgun style bar that can be somewhat crowded at times however, the scenery in there is very nice! Prices are a bit high however. its DC and they are moderate for the market. Met some cool folks here that i plan on staying in touch with. One of the top 5 beer bars i have been to!

Visited again recently. Spent parts of the last 3 days here while attending a conference in DC. Wow! Their tap list changes daily, the staff are very attent, knowledgeable. The food is good. The beer list is amazing and the overall vibe very positive and pro craft. What a place. Upgraded my score to 96 from 92.

Dark, cavernous place located above Birch & Barley. I visited right after opening and had the run of the place to myself. Maybe 60 beers were available on tap. A sour tap takeover had taken place the previous day, so I was all too happy to mop up what was left. Diverse options from the likes of Evil Twin, Freigeist, and Boulevard were available. The bottle list was similarly huge, varied. I splurged on a bottle of Maine Lunch and was thrilled to discover it was less than 2 weeks old. The bar staff were excellent. Both of the guys who served me were knowledgeable and quick to offer free samples. The prices werenít cheap, but not unreasonable. Overall, I look forward to my next visit. Churchkey offers a world class experience.

This bar of the highest repute did not seem all that big when we first stepped in, but upon further study, lots of people can fit in here. At the front and rear, sofas offer a different seating alternatives and so does the very long bar from which you can see the very knowledgeable staff at work. Our barman was very friendly and knowledgeable though he recognized his limits when asked a particularly rare bottle offering that he ended up not finding. Still, the extremely large bottle list is almost futile considering the extraordinary tap list. I donít know whether my visit was representative, but this felt like a visit at Gingerman NYC and one on an especially good night as more than half of the menu I would not have minded seeing in my glass. Truly very impressive selection, possibly among the best of the world. I was not particularly fond of the atmosphere though, it felt very loud and not a particularly pretty venue, yet loaded with young professionals on a Friday evening.

Visited Churchkey over the 4th of July weekend. It was a welcome respite from sightseeing & walking around DC in the very hot weather. We ate outside actually as part of the downstairs restaurant called Birch & Barley (owned by the same people). All beers are available in both the bar (Churchkey) & the restaurant. Since we had a member of our party under 21 we were forced to eat at the restaurant (i.e. not admitted up into the bar...even though they serve food...crazy DC liquor law). The bar food is more casual & the restaurant more high end in a gastropub kind of way. At the end of the day we had no complaints as all 500 bottles, 50 drafts, and 5 casks are available in both sections of the establishment. Two of us started with twin flights of all 9 Ales & moved on from there. Temperatures are divided into 3 levels...glasses are correct too. The experience is amazing...the food great. To make sure I could review this properly I visited the bar upstairs before leaving. I will be back!
