Absolutely amazing place. Barman Austin greeted me right away, and was a good conversationist, and always had good beer recommendations. Bar manager Terry joined him and even pulled out a New Glarus to share. The tap list is terrific, and the bottle list is very wide ranging. Donít miss the "vintage" fridge in the middle room, those bottles are not on the menu. Found a 2009 BFM that Iíve been looking for for four years. Clientele was mostly locals, since the location and the prices are just out of the studentsí reach. Definitely the highlight of my trip to the Atlanta area.

Okay, I drove all the way down to Athens for a concert which I discovered was canceled only when I arrived at the club at 10:45 pm. My visit at Trappeze Pub made the drive worth my while. This is beer heaven on earth. This is arguably the single best bar for beer in the south and one of the best anywhere Iíve ever been. The taps are obnoxious in their quality. Six Stone taps, a BFM tap, Allagash Curieux on tap, Storm King on cask, the list just goes on and on. The bottle selection is staggering. Menus are available with very extensive descriptions and categorizing of the beer. An excellent Scotch selection is also available. I like the idea of Scotch flights. More than 75% of the food on the menu is made with beer. I had the beer cheddar soup with sourdough and it was absolutely mouthwatering. I havenít seen a pub with this kind of emphasis on craft beer in a long, long while. This is an absolutely mandatory stop in Athens.

Surprised to find a place like this in a college town, just doesnít fit here, but its a great spot. 30 taps, some real gems like Gozu, everything comes in a half pours for the ticker. The draft list was impressive, but wish it focused slightly more on local stuff. The bottle list wasnít all the impressive, basically stuff thatís available anywhere. Vintage list didnít have anything rar. The food was quite excellent and you canít beat the prices. Service was quick and knowledgable. Come for the drafts and food and you wonít be disappointed, not one of the top bars in the world, top tier for the US.

Where to start with this place. Amazing food, beers, staff. I loved the place so much that I ate there every day. Freshly made, portebella Chimay soup with Chimay Carbonade, sourdough with St Bernardus dipping sauce. Beer cheese soup. Terrapin bread. Excellent cheese platters. Nice atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and some awesome beers on draft and bottles. Prices for food and beers are more than reasonable for the quality of what you are getting. Domestic pints for around 4.50 to 5 dollars, imports go for a little more with specials going for 7-8dollars. They had Leffe for 4 dollars. This is no wonder that so many breweries decide to do hold their diners at Trappeze. Thye even sell pint glasses for a very decent price.

Bar/restaurant with large bar and tons of seating. Lots of large tables good for large parties. Extensive draft list with nice variety of locals, fresh IPAs (i.e. Lagunitas Sucks) and nice selection of stouts. Decent bottle selection, but no bottle menu or list when I was there so kind of a pain to inquire about prices and availability. Still, overall a great beer bar in a cool part of Athens.

This place was where everybody in town told us to go. And while I did like it a lot, I didnít fall in love with it. Maybe I was just in a weird mood. We went late night, so the place was pretty empty, and we were able to get a seat at the bar without difficulty. The selection was definitely extensive, and prices were fair for the mostpart. The staff was not overly friendly, but they were fairly knowledgeable and we had a good time, even though we were only able to stay for an hour or so.

Wow. This place was a great time, when I was in Athens with some friends. The draft beer is amazing, and they have all of the latest Terrapin stuff, and if it is available in GA, then Trappeze has it. Typical European/ Irish pub setup with limited seating. Service left a bit to be desired. The poor bartender had to do our food order because even he could not find a server to wait on us. The food and beer MORE than made up for it though. Vegetarian rueben with beer mustard, Mushroom and Chimay soup. They have one page of food items, but each one seems more decadent than the other. Everything is very well done and I thoroughly enjoyed this bar. I will return when I am passing through Athens, but I will know to go early this time.

Visited while I visited Five Points Bottle Shop. Nice place. It had just opened for the day, and was very quiet. I believe my brother and I, and maybe one or two other people were in this place at the time. Service was awesome. They had an awesome selection, and were willing to give samples of anything on tap. I am sure this place gets extremely busy during the weekend, but on Thursday (during lunch time) it was virtually empty. I was able to try Brooklyn Blast (a new beer I hadnít tried before) and Terrapin All-American Imperial Pilsner one last time before it bites the dust i.e. becomes retired. Food was pretty good. This was just a pleasurable experience. Prices werenít ridiculous.

Stopped here because of the good ratebeer reviews and glad I did. Was there on a holiday weekend in the summer - so it was probably the least crowded it gets. Thirty beers on draft and an extensive bottle list. Reasonable prices and a classy ambiance. Fantastic place.

Visited in February 2009 while in Athens on business. This is by far one of the best beer bars that I have ever visited. Quaint, european interior with seating all over the place. Amazing tap list, even better food, and prices that are reasonable. This is a definite must stop when anywhere within like 100 miles -- well worth the trip.
