Church Key information
Foggy North Beach nights call for a beer, but warm ones deserve two – ideally from the selection of 55 international craft brews at Church Key. Whether your favorite beer is Brazilian or Kiwi, bacon-flavored or pomegranate-scented, look for the discreet white key sign over the door and head on back to the copper-topped bar for a consultation with well-versed bartenders. There are only a couple of wines on the menu and no cocktails – but with potent 10% to 12% beer, you won't miss them. Cash only.
