Absolutely amazing place. Barman Austin greeted me right away, and was a good conversationist, and always had good beer recomendations. Bar manager Terry joined him and even pulled out a Znew 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 thremenu. Found a 2009 BFM that Iíve been looking fir fir 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.

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.

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.

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.

Fantastic bar, even has the feel of a Belgian Bar, the service I had was top class and the beers I drank were excellant. I stayed in the Holiday Inn downtown, which was a 5 minute walk over the road. Nice large wooden booths if youíre with a small party, I was with a friend and we sat at the bar. There was plenty of college kids in there, and they seemed pretty well behaved (I am an old bloke, haha) but it is a college town, so itís only to be expected, I was happy to see them all drinking great beers, and Trappeze has a first class selection. I saw people eating burgers but I didnít eat myself, I will be upset if I never get to go back!!

Ambiance is nice, modern restaurant with southern charm. Service was admittedly kinda slow and forgetful. Selection was pretty good, but I thought the tap list lacked diversity... and not a single Rauchbier in the whole joint. Still, a pretty good beer menu overall. Food was pretty ordinary for me; I had a St. Bernardus Roast Beef sandwich that was mediocre. They do have some cheese that are made by them that were decent. The best thing here are the half pours: I had four really good beers for about three dollars a pour. I can see why this place is considered world class, but it isnít even the best destination in itís own city.

Was in town for the Terrapin & Duck Rabbit beer dinner at Trappeze. Eric the owner was a super cool dude, and Iíll be damned if he hasnít assembled on hell of a beer bar! Seriously, there was some outstanding selection, both bottle and draft some super rare and VERY reasonably priced goodies. Really is a Marvelous placeÖ MUST Visit if in GA!
