The best way to do Churchkey is to come with only one or two other people and get a table in the back. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t come with a larger group, too - just be prepared to stand. The beer list is one of the longest around, which means it definitely has options for your friend who brings up “saison” in casual conversation. There’s also a food menu with flatbreads, pasta, and other things you’ll probably want after a few drinks.
