While waiting to be seated for dinner we were encouraged to go up stairs to the bar. Refer to Birch and Barley rating for other details. The place is dimly lit with modern decor. The tap selection is excellent, 50 beer taps. The place was busy, but not crazy (Thursday night). I tried to get the attention of several bar tenders with no luck. Finally a guy who was actually a waiter said he would get me a sample I asked for. He said he wasn’t supposed to do this, but he would do this as a favor, come on really. Our buzzer went off and I told him not to bother.

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.

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 !!!!
