Churchkey is a beer geek's heaven. While the rotating tap selection is impressive at 50 selections, the book of bottles is mind-boggling. With some 500 choices, it's very difficult to choose which brew to try. Fortunately, all beers are listed by style, which makes it a little easier to figure out what to order. The food is tasty and there are plenty of options. Service is decent but I'm not sure how helpful they would be in helping novice beer drinkers select something from their selection, especially when it is busy. During peak hours, it is a bustling, noisy environment but that shouldn't deter beer lovers looking for options that aren't available elsewhere. Definitely a place to stop back into next time I'm in DC.

First class place. I showed up on the day of the dominion 25th anniversary celebration and was fortunate to enjoy a bell's two hearted on cask, victory dirtwolf and dominion the dream 25th anniversary black IPL. 50 beers were on tap and hundreds of other bottles available. Atmosphere was a bit dark, but friendly crowd. The service was top notch. When asked, the bartenders explained how much work went into changing 50 kegs over the night before in preparation of the 25th anny party, flushing all the lines with cleaner then water before changing over the kegs. I was impressed by three different temperature controlled coolers housing the kegs to serve at optimal serving temps. This is a must stop in the DC area and only a short walk/bike ride off the metro red line.
