Visited on a business trip. Location in the heart of DC. The place is not your typical local bar feel but more a restaurant with a bar that has coolers full of beer. The tap list and beer list are one of the most extensive in the world. They necessarily claim to have special "vintage" beers as much as just having a large variety of good beers from around the world. The service was quick and good throughout our dinner. The food was quite good and worth a visit just for dinner. The prices were reasonable and affordable for the majority. Overall a place to visit on the East coast and especially if you want to find that one off beer from Croatia, they just might have it. Recommended visit if in the DC area.

A very nice beer bar. Phenomenal selection on tap and in bottles with some real difficult to find beers. Very pricey, though.

I FINALLY stopped by here. Yes, shameful I know. Checked in near opening with solidfunk and Travlr and had a great time with those gentlemen. Upstairs, dark, long bar, tables. Comfortable vibe with some medieval / gothic flair. Street parking could be a pain but I got lucky. I did not eat, but the menu looks good and reasonably priced. The food looked good and the place smelled of charcuterie, which was nice. Extensive bottle list is almost too much to take in. Lots of rarities and while the prices are steep they arenít unreasonable. Great draft list as well including several draft options. I dealt with several staff members and ALL of them exhibited good beer knowledge and concern for beer quality without coming off as pretentious. They all were friendly and down to earth. World class place.

Visited 14-MAY-2014, for just an hour. Could have stayed for days, though. Ordere a flight of 4 oz drafts and was offered a free pour of a fantastic Founders Nemesis 2009. Thx. Ordered two more great beers and were of again. Placed on 14th street there is no excuse for not going if you are in town. I will return if I have the possibility:-)

So lucky to work a short drive from here! Limited street parking and opening at 4 on weekdays are my only gripes! Amazing bar with world class beers, Events, and staff!

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.
