ChurchKey and Birch & Barley
Hottest Beer Spot in D.C.
Ask me where to drink good beer, and I will quickly respond, "ChurchKey and Birch & Barley in Logan Circle." Negotiate your way through the 150-seat high-ceiling beer hall/lounge to its 60-foot bar and select from over 550 beers (50 drafts, 500 bottles) from 30 countries, and rare international and English-style ales (plus fried mac and cheese, and tater tots). If you're unsure of what to try, ChurchKey does offer four-ounce pours for as little as $2. Go downstairs to Birch & Barley for not only more beer but a menu food featuring tagliatelle with rabbit, beef cheeks with grits, chicken and waffles, sticky buns, and gourmet donuts.
