A Washington DC destination without peer for beer lovers, ChurchKey serves to define a new genre of dining + drinking with a collection of 555 hand-picked labels meticulously curated by Beer Director Greg Engert.
I would recommend a beer, but the list is always changing (reason to return frequently). No matter what you decide, an order of poutine will accompany it perfectly.
Go to Church Key early and enjoy before it gets so packed you can't stand without someone in a polo knocking you over.
You can order half sizes of beer so you can try more without filling up.
The Fig & Prosciutto Flatbread is six slices of heaven.
The tator tots are heavenly!
Great food paired with a fantastic, extensive beer selection. Tide over your wait downstairs by going up to ChurchKey's beer bar.
Can you say "AECHT SCLENKERLA RAUCHBIER URBOCK"? Its a smoke beer from Germany!
make sure to check the size of a "glass" of beer.. varies from 8-16 oz
Don't ask for the wine menu. This is a beer bar.
Try the Mac & Cheese Sticks
If Ola Dubh is on tap, get it. I prefer 40 to 30 to 18.
The seating situation is a complete clusterfuck. If you're lucky enough to drink your beer sitting down, guard that seat with all your life.
Not counting your calories? An order of Mac & Cheese Sticks = Heaven.
Look for Jordan. Great barman and he knows his beers. Ask for suggestions.
The "BLT Pizza" flatbread is amazing. Uh. May. Zing.
Sometimes people lose shoes in these bathrooms...
Poutine is always your friend.
If you're going to try one beer try the Paulus. It's exclusive to CK and magical.
nahem at the bar is your friend. good man there.
Fig, Gorgonzola, and grilled onions on pizza are a must.
It's rarely on tap, but if it is, make sure to try a draft of the Climax Nut Brown Ale.
Brat Burger is amazing.
Thank everyone that works here for making awesome beer happen
An upstairs/downstairs, beer-focused restaurant and gastropub. At Birch & Barley, order the cavatelli and flounder tartare; at Church Key, Tater Tots and charcuterie.
Elysian from Seattle on tap! Impressive.
Staff are incredibly friendly!
The Brooklyn Lager rocks.
Love the atmosphere, southern style cooking and beer list.
Awesome bar with awesome beer. Bartender recommended the De Koninick Winter Koninck and it's great.
It can get packed, so be prepared. Great beer, huge selection of bottled beer. Check out their menus online to see in advance what you want.
The Allagash Bourbon is to die for.
Must try the Mac & Cheese Sticks made with garlic breadcrumbs and served with tomato relish.
Front window seating upstairs was great but a little drafty. Great beer selections and a nice and helpful staff. Food was decent and fairly priced.
Nothing goes better with all the delicious beers than a Fig & Prosciutto flatbread.
It kinda goes without saying... this is the best place to drink beer in DC. Take advantage of the staff's knowledge and try as many new brews as you can!
With 555 unique beers that represent 30 different countries, any beer connoisseur can find what they're looking for here. --Jon Taffer, Bar Rescue (Sundays 10/9c)
Sit at the bar for the total experience.
Try the beers!
There's literally over 100 beers available here.
Barstools here are at a premium
The Chicken MikeNuggets are incredible pockets of confit chicken. I've never had anything like them and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Unless you're a vegetarian.
this place is awesome, but dress light it's always too hot when I've been there.
Great Craft beer selection
