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.

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 !!!!

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.

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.
