This is one of the best beer bars I've ever visited. Would call this the second best beer bar I've been to in the US (just behind Brouwers in Seattle). Torst would be on that shortlist too. More taps than I could count, a killer bottle list with breadth geographically and some cellared rarities if you feel like shelling out - but the draft list is spectacular enough where you might never notice the bottle list. Four ounce pours of everything, bartenders who know their beer. It was a bit crowded when I arrived and a little tough to initially get the bartenders' attention, but once I got it service was excellent. Stop wasting time and go here. Whoever said nothing gets done in Washington clearly didn't meet the people responsible for ChurchKey's beer selection.

ChurchKey is a beer lovers' dream. This place has an incredible selection, including many rare and new beers, with a very strong, but not huge, draft collection and an unbelievable bottle list. The food is decent, but nothing special and the ambiance is great when the place isn't crowded (not often) and challenging when the place is packed. However, it should be on any bucket list.

Upstairs from Birch & Barley, the draught list is identical - the food menu is different. Personally, I prefer ChurchKey. Incredible taplist, with 4 oz pours of anything available - usually $3-4.50++. Very friendly and helpful service. Simply one of the best US bars I've been to.

Best beer bad in DC in my opinion. Helpful staff and great beer list, both tap and bottle. Lovely interior as well.

A dark stair up to a long bar, still a little dim so we had a table by the window to the street. Classy bar, wood, leather, loads of bottles behind the bar and on the other wall. Not alot of people as we entered just after opening time at 5, but filled up over the hour or so we spent here. 50 some tap's, sorted in the meny by style so easy get a overview of whats on. Locals, beers from all over the us and some fine imports. Small 4oz pours starting at 3$ makes ticking alot less painfull than some places visited the last days. Good quality, great helpfull service with good knowlegde of whats on. Had a short look at the impressive bottle list, but didnt venture into that. Great place, we both would have loved to stay here alot longer just drinking beers.

Dark and narrow with a bar that runs about the full depth of the place. Was fairly busy on a Saturday afternoon when I strolled in but was able to find a spot at the bar. Friendly barkeep but he was a bit slow (and busy, so no fault). The bottle list was extensive, and so was the tap list, but I felt it was uninspired. Call me a hater if you must, but I found it difficult to find something that excited me. Maybe because it was talked up so much, I don't know. I opted for a cask bitter that was slightly vinegary and a local hazy IPA that turned out to be middle-of-the-road. That last part isn't Churchkey's fault but the vinegary cask is. I left after that pint a bit dismayed. I would like to come back as all I've heard makes me think maybe it just was an off encounter. Time will tell, I guess.

Great place overall, from the selection down to the dark cozy atmosphere. I guess the food could be more varied but just go downstairs to birch and barley if you want more food.

I was curious to see the former playground of Travlr, considering that it was rated among the top beer destinations (twelfth at the time) by fellow Ratebeerians and I must say that I was not disappointed. Besides the great selection of 50 beers on tap, and the tasty pub fare, the ambience was very appropriate, the service was fast and knowledgeable,and the vast bottle list was impressive. Having a smaller size to taste was also useful. Certainly a top place, though I have to visit more of the top 50 to compare.

Visited on 10th October 2017. Large, dark bar upstairs at Birch and Barley. The ambience is pretty good with a really nice, relaxed vibe to the place. It was busy but managed to get a table. Beer range is excellent with a great tap list and a really solid bottle list. Service was super friendly and helpful, prices good. Probably one of the nicest places we went to on this trip.
