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 aren’t 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!

Great selection of beers, really chill atmosphere, helpful staff. Easy to see why it’s the king of the capital.

This place is amazing. I’ve been in here three times since I’ve 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 haven’t even started to look at the bottle list yet. It’s 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 can’t imagine a beer selection being any better than theirs. The beer service staff was very good and knowledgeable. I’d definitely head back any time I’m up in the DC area. I’d say it’s a bit overpriced, but I expected that so it wasn’t 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 can’t 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. There’s 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.
