Came here on a Monday night to meet fellow ratebeerians Travlr and GT2. Spent the evening upstairs in the bar section. Beautiful interior. Nice long bar with comfortable seating, great selection on tap and tasty food. Prices were good for the stuff on tap, on the pricey side for bottles but the variety makes it definitely worth stopping by. A really good bar.

Awesome place - gets very crowded by about 6:30pm on a weekday. Small sizes and a massive beer list with frequent specials make it a tickers paradise!

What a place! amazing tap list, well put together, comfortable room. Taster sizes of all the draft beers, which are constantly changing. Gorgeous spot, wish I could hang out here all the time, and a must visit if youíre in the District. And probably if youíre just in the States at all.

Huhzubendah  (35) Washington DC | July 26, 2012| Updated July 27, 2012
Let me start by saying that this is the preeminent beer bar in Washington, D.C. There are approximately 50 taps of high quality beer and 5 casks. Some great draft beers I have enjoyed here include Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout, Cantillon Fouí Foune and St. Lamvinus, Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, etc. The quality and rarity of the draft selection is simply unmatched. The service at the bar, like many establishments, really depends on your server. Some are better, friendlier, and more knowledgeable than others. When selecting a beer, you may choose from a full serving (8-16 oz. depending on the beer) or a 4 oz. sample size serving. This is extremely cool, especially when trying out a new beer, or when youíre in the mood to sample a few different brews without committing to an entire glass. The bar food is better than average. The top notch drafts will cost you around $13 or so, but then again, where else will you find these highly coveted brews on tap?

Visited on 2012.07.08 prior to heading to the Birchmere to see Zappa Plays Zappa. Time was 4PM on a Sunday so the downstairs (B&B) was not yet open and they were only offering Brunch menu upstairs. Ambience was fine. It was not very crowded when we were there. Booths are kind of quirky and hipster, but at the same time a little disfunctional. They are slightly high (and I am 6 feet tall) so your legs dangle and there is little to nothing to place them on. There is some form of shelf you eventually find with your feet to rest them on, but that is a bit awkward as well. The seating material is a bit slippery as well which makes that solid foothold more desirable. Food was pretty good, I had a brat burger as I recall. Biggest downside is the selection is not readily available. They give you a draft list, which obviously you would want. But if youíre interested in the obscure bottles, you have to ask. If your server isnít sure, he has to look in "the book", and the book lists things by style. So if you arenít sure exactly what they decided to characterize it as, you will be looking for awhile. Basically they need to make it more accessible and searchable format on the website (in a non-Flash format for Iphone preferably). Or an app. Not to be all hipster, "it needs an app" but itís just too much information for the current practices and needs to be more accessible. Definitely a great place to try beers, and the atmosphere was good.

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.

blipp  (192) La Mesa, California | April 9, 2012
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.

tastybeer  (35) Indiana | February 29, 2012
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.
