This place is amazing. Iíve been in here three times since Iíve arrived and had a top 100 beer that was on my dusty want list every time, with lots of European imports and stuff from all over the U.S. and Canada. Incredible tap list that changes massively by the week with something like 6 casks. You can try anything on regular pour or 4oz samples. I havenít even started to look at the bottle list yet. Itís usually pretty busy - even on Sundays the brunch crowd takes over. I can foresee myself wasting a lot of money here.

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....
