From the ashes of the Brickskeller rises Churchkey. Although, the aformentioned Dupont haunt was a personal fave for itís low key personality - the service was poor, food deplorable, and most frustratingly, the menu was always sold out.
Churchkey, having no reputation to rely on, has built theirs on a premium location in the Midtown/14th and U district
A formidable menu of AVAILABLE choices, and a hipper setting. Better food, better service, and a selection that actually exists.
Go there. Drink, be merry. Then go to Saint-Ex or The Black Cat for the dancing your beer courage hath inspired.

Have been a couple of times in the last few weeks due to work commitments taking me to DC. First time we went upstairs, second downstair. Excellent service, supreme selection (Timothy Taylor Landlord in bottles!!!) and a wonderful atmosphere, especially upstairs when sat at the bar. Bar staff were very knowledgeable, and treated they cask ales well. On the food front, the proscuitto and fig flat bread was divine, the brat burger is nice thought both the fries and the bun were a touch greasy. I will definitely be going whenever I am in DC, though the prices are a touch on the crazy side, but I guess thatís life in the city.

What a great place but be prepared to walk. After reading reviews on this site for a year i decided to look up a good beer bar while on business in dc. Great draft list and bottle selection but the prices are very high. It really makes me appreciate the face that I live in Pittsburgh and prices are so reasonable. When I entered the building it was very warm and welcoming. Continued to the upstairs part of the building which i guess is what they called the church key. I love food just as much as I love beer so I was supprised to see an all time childhood favorite tater tots. I didnt order them but did get the chicken enchelidas which were wonderful. I also tried a few too many drafts and was too full to try the honey stout ice cream sundae that looked so good. I will definately stop back on my next trip through dc and will save room for this sundae.

Really an awesome place. Probably one of the top 5 beer bars Iíve been to. The best thing about this place is being able to get 4 oz. pours of any of the draft beers in a 12 oz snifter glass. Perfect. The selection is great, and has a good deal of locals that I assume donít distribute very far outside of the D.C. area. If youíre in D.C., itís a must hit.

First off: Yes, itís the best beer bar in DC. Huge draft list, usually a quarter of which is stuff you wonít find elsewhere. This is drawfed by the gigantic 500+ bottle list, where you will find tons of rarities. Be prepared to pay though, everything is expensive and prices DO NOT include sales tax (10% in DC). That being said, given the selection, prices are competitive with other trendy DC bars. Very nice ambiance, clean, modern. Bartenders and wait staff are all excellent. Food is very good as well, although the food in CK is primarily pub food, while Birch & Barley is a full service restaurant. Usually fills up early and stays crowded. Definitely the place to visit if you have one night in DC.

The food is great and so is the beer selection! The beers are a little over priced.

ChurchKey, my home two blocks from home. Great tap list, great bottle list, and Iíve made quite a few friends there. The edibles and potables can be expensive, but you can always get a small pour or, if you ask nicely, a free taste.

In the upstairs Churchkey part. Amazing selection of draft and bottled beer - local, micro and high end import. Limited food menu, but looks pretty good. Good luck finding a place to park, though, when you come!

Wish I could have spent some more time here. Excellent service and menu, both food and beer. I was a little overwhelmed. Always am, when I visit the big city bars! Fantastic draft and bottle selection. Iíll be back for sure. I was a hungover the day I visited with GT2, biggurlpanties, and travlr but it was still a kickass time.
