Bar Review: ChurchKey

Fresh from it's recent RAMMY wins, ChurchKey was certainly the place to be on Friday night. The ultimate beer haven, ChurchKey takes a step back in time as it feels as if you are in a dark and sultry bar in 19th century Paris. The bar itself stretched the entire wall and sported numerous beers on tap.

Although we had a large group of people, the bar staff were very attentive and made sure we received our drinks without an aggravating wait. Not much of a beer drinker, I opted for the Weston's Cider. If there was an "adult apple juice," this would be it--a perfect drink for a humid summer's night. Most sipped on the Sierra Nevada Summerfest, a subtle hop beer, while those who desired a malt beer chose the Hop Head Red Ale.

If you can manage to grab a table, the food looked and smelled delicious. Seeing all the plates pass by definitely made me want to come back. Has anyone else tried the food? Was it great or just typical bar food? I'd love to know.

It's more inventive than typical bar food. I was with a food critic, so we sampled a number of things on the menu, and they were all pretty good. Nothing I can specifically recommend to knock your socks off, though.

The cask beers are where it's at. Highly recommended.
