“Fantastic place for craft beer fans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is one of our faves in DC--so many craft beers, beer on tap and cask that they need a notebook! If you aren't a beer drinker, try the Birch & Barley restaurant (all the beer choices still available). The sandwiches in ChurchKey are killer as well. Definitely don't miss this Logan Circle classic!

“If you Love Beer & Fun & Food you Must Visit!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

A local recommended this place to us since we were in DC for a couple of days and I am so happy we went. We got there around 9pm on a Friday night and the place was packed. We managed to get a booth at the upstairs bar...great timing because another party was leaving at the same time. The service was very good and with over 50 beers on tap you are guaranteed to have a good time. Prices range from $6-$13 for a regular glass of beer depending on what you get. The menu is very clear and has a description of the beer, brewery etc. We sampled several beers and our waiter was very helpful with the beer selection...very knowledgable.
We also ordered the burger, fries, pasta...everything was delicious. One night is not enough here so plan on visiting it at least 3 times. I wish we were able to go to Churchkey more than once but we will definitely be back if we are ever in DC again.

“So many beers on tap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The owner/owners of this pub? know what they are doing. Almost 50 beers on tap all being kept at the perfect temperature. And they have bottled gluten free beer which you can't get just anywhere. Sunday evenings is the best time to go. Other nights you might have to stand. Well worth your time.

“Extensive selection of excellent beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

I went here on a Monday evening and it was full of people enjoying the very wide range of local and European beers. The staff are friendly and knowledgable about the beers they sell. If you like good beer, this is definitely somewhere to try.

“So Famous You Have to Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

In its short history, this place has managed to become a landmark. The service is good. It makes the neighborhood just as cool as it will be in the future.
