ChurchKey is my go-to place. Lots of great taps, a constant cycling of great new beers to try, an attentive and knowledgeable wait staff, and good (if expensive) food available.

Flat out one of the best beer bars I’ve ever been to. Huge tap list, bigger bottle list, small pours available, incredible service, and a really sweet atmosphere.

Wow. It is hard to find a bar with a more extensive selection than this one. A must visit when in DC. Note - very noisy on Saturday night.

Great place. I went there for dinner and like the beetroot starter but the pasta was only OK. Very large beer selection on tap and bottle with knowledgeable staff. I would definitely go back.

Usually a bit crowded, but the staff handles it fairly well. Amazing selection! Best place to find rare brews in the DC metro, hands down. Prices aren’t bad, but the food was underwhelming, at least at ChurckKey. I’d imagine its better at B&B

After traveling to many states this past year I stopped into my girlfriends home state/area. We went into D.C. and I had to check this place out. I was impressed with their bottle list but not their prices. A bottle of pursuit of hoppiness was $35. They had a few 750ml (non rarer) bottles of Cantillon, great right? Not for $50-60 dollars a pop. Which is the highest I have seen those type of bottles go for within multiple states. I was greeted and served nicely and that made up for the prices. After some eye browsing I noticed a wall that had shelves of bottles on it. To my surprise I noticed many different hyped up bottles. I wasn’t too fond of seeing so many desirable beers sitting on a shelf on the wall not available for sale. Each hyped up bottle of beer had many multiples. I was told they were being aged which is understandable. But for example why show off ten to twenty bottles of BCS? Just show off one bottle of each and have a sign stating that these beers are being aged and not for sale? In the end I will go back here because this place knows beer. The staff is a lot of help and engages with you to chat about what you are looking for which is pleasant. It is worth going to. I just hope you have better luck than I did. Maybe one of those beers on the wall will fall off into your hands

The food is deese here but the real attraction is the selection and service for the beer. Also the details...the way the menu is broken down by style, the many pour size options. Awesome addition to the DC beer scene.

OK, walking into this one was a bit of a gut clencher - would it live up to the considerable hype of ratebeerians everywhere? Unassuming front, walkt up a flight of stairs and there is an average bar and a small area for tables. Tap list was intriguing but not amazing. Bottle list was EXTENSIVE, but none of my wales were on it, and prices were about 50% higher (where there was overlap) with Pizzeria Paradiso down the street. They serve all of their taps as 4 oz taster pours which was nice. The bartenders were friendly, efficient and knowledgable, and the food, such that i tried, was pretty good. All in all a nice experience, just not the trancendental one I was expecting.
