Open Daily

What a long, strange trip it’s been...


To say that we’re beyond thrilled to finally (finally!) get back into the swing of things would be an understatement of impossible magnitude. Suffice it to say, we are just absolutely stoked – and so genuinely grateful for your enduring patience and patronage. So many months in the making, we’re ready to throw open the doors to ChurchKey and welcome each and every one of you to join the celebration with us.


As someone so delightfully said on social recently “Baby got some new shoes!” And indeed she does. We’re excited for the myriad changes made – all of which expand on our original mission to make ChurchKey an incomparable bar for beer lovers of every stripe. We love the way the place looks and can’t wait to fill it up with all of you. So, buckle up everybody 'cause ChurchKey is back and ready to have some serious fun!

Coming Attractions

Friday, December 2nd @4pm


Join ChurchKey on Friday, December 2nd, as we welcome three friends from the NJ-NYC-CT Tri-State Area: Marlowe Artisanal Ales, The Seed: A Living Beer Project, and Timber Ales. On this night, we will pour no less than 12 drafts from these renowned breweries! There is no admission fee for this event.


Thursday, December 8th @4pm


Join ChurchKey on Thursday, December 8th, for the return of our Annual Holiday Soiree & Canned Food Drive. On this night, we will pour 12 festive holiday beers on draft!

Don’t miss your chance to wax nostalgic while sipping on some winter classics, alongside some modern takes by popular craft breweries. Some highlights include Great Lakes’ yearly Barrel-Aged Christmas Ale, Prairie’s Christmas Bomb!, St. Bernardus Christmas Ale, and even special cask pours of Sierra Nevada’s Celebration Fresh Hop IPA!

Yet again, this event will double as a canned food drive to help relieve hunger in the District. We are continuing our partnership with Martha's Table, our longtime neighbors who have been helping those in need for nearly 40 years! Beginning at 4 PM, guests who bring in a canned good, or make a cash donation, will receive a free 4 oz. pour
of a holiday beer on draft or cask (priced at $5 or less). There is no admission fee for this event. All event beers will be
priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours. The beer list is subject to change without notice.
