Great Bars 2013: ChurchKey

Washington has undergone a beer revolution in the last few
years, with offerings from such local breweries as DC Brau, Chocolate
City, and 3 Stars suddenly ubiquitous at bars that once offered only the
big boys. At the center of this scene is suds expert Greg Engert, who
stocks this baroque beer hall—anchored by a long bar and flanked by
gold-velvet banquettes—with 500-plus bottles and regularly taps
hard-to-find casks and kegs. Insider tip: Look out for Engert’s new Navy
Yard brewery and pub, Bluejacket, set to open this spring. Open
daily.
