Visited on a Wednesday night in early March 2015. You can see all the pipes for the taps, it looks cool. Super loud and full of people! Fantastic beer list. We squeezed into a booth and ordered a drink to cap the night after Birch & Barley. Would return again. (4/8/13/NA/7/15) 80

Ce bar est un paradis caché au dessus du restaurant Birch & Barley. Un personnel super sympa et une incroyable sélection de bières au fut (une quarantaine) et en bouteilles (un bottin de téléphone). La carte des bière est d’une grande lisibilité. Et pour accompagner tout cela n’hésitez pas à goûter les os à moelle et aux oignons caramélisés. Le pied intégral !!!!

A lot of people. A lot of beer to choose from. Drank a Founders KBS from 2011. Really pleased with it. Never try the food. Sports bar with TV was available. Nice and knowledgeable staff. Worth a visit if you are in Washington. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

It has a cool old world vibe that they cultivate, and the keg cooler with the chain crane is impressive to see. The bar has a bunch of church keys set into the stone top. Service was great, prompt, super knowledgeable, and as freindly as possible with the crowd. Selection is super impressive, how many places have The Alchemist and Cantillon next to Fonta Flora and Creature Comforts. It is the best in DC for a reason.

Stine  (257) Minneapolis, Minnesota | June 1, 2017
The dimly lit bar, set in the back end of the sprawling narrow space, feels too dark in daytime when the sunlight filters in from the front. The keg room being above the bar in ladder-access loft is pretty cool and visually impressive. Fairly full on a mid-afternoon Saturday, and the way people are bustling around gives the impression that this is probably, at least functionally, somewhat of a volume operation.

This tap menu is probably the flagship of the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, in size, scope and purpose; the imported specialties featured heavily at the Sovereign and top-flight American craft breweries are each given ample space here. The bottle list is also enormous, and though there may be issues with freshness in many cases, it is impressive; also impressive is how carefully demarcated the list is, not only according to styles but to flavor profiles within them.

The food menu offers many of the same items available at Birch and Barley, though often worded or presented differently on the menu - a confusing choice in my opinion. Service was a touch slow, and disconnected - another sign that Churchkey is too popular not to function as a volume bar/restaurant in some respects. Notwithstanding, in beer terms alone it is obviously a top-flight destination.

j12601  (575) Poughkeepsie, New York | February 18, 2017
Up a dark set of stairs into a slightly less dark second floor, but still so poorly lit that it took a while to be able to see well enough. (Maybe the slow service is intentional to allow your eyes time to adjust?) The bar is crowded on a Saturday in the middle of February at about 5 or 6 PM. I manage to grab one of the lone bar seats and begin the waiting game. I get passed over by 3 separate people behind the bar before a fourth (the barback) pours me a water and brings me a menu. But he can’t serve anything, so the waiting game continues. I wait for about ten minutes, as a new couple who comes in after me and sits down next to me gets served right away. I finally get in an order for a couple of 4oz pours and a $16 personal pizza (more later). That is a nice thing in regards to their sizable beer list, they do offer smaller pours, albeit it mostly in the $1/oz range. I get my beers, and not too long after my $16 pizza that serves one. It’s doughy and slightly undercooked. This is a disappointment. The beers are fine, and eventually after some flagging, I get a few more pours. Service was very lacking, and I’d go a good chunk of time with no attention from the three bartenders, then one would see to me, and the other two would quickly follow. Seems like there could be a better way of organizing that, perhaps a section of the bar each instead of all of them basically making the rounds through the place. I’m glad I went, but if that’s what the hype is all about, I’m certainly in no hurry to get back. Prices are high, service was lacking, food was poor.
