ChurchKey to Set New Record with @SierraNevada Tap Takeover

Here it is folks. One of the biggest tap takeover events ever from the fine folks at ChurchKey. As anticipated, this will be one of their biggest events to date.

Prepare yo’self !

May 21, 2012 (Washington, DC) – Birch & Barley and ChurchKey, Washington’s notorious beer-centric bar and restaurant, will once again offer a remarkable schedule of special events in honor of SAVOR: An American Craft Beer + Food Experience from June 3 through June 9. In addition to exclusive beer debuts, history-making tap takeovers, and appearances by the country’s premium brewers, Birch & Barley and ChurchKey are especially pleased to be offering the first tastes from Bluejacket, the forthcoming D.C. brewery slated to open in 2013.

With SAVOR once again selling out in mere minutes, Birch & Barley and ChurchKey welcomes local beer lovers, dedicated beer fans, and visiting aficionados to the opportunity to experience some of the country’s best American craft beers through a variety of special events.
