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!!

Just wanted to add to my previous review. Everything below us still accurate I just wanted to add that they have really upped their game with the food! Awesome!! This place has got their act together. You can tell the owners love beer. Everything in the proper glassware. Glycol cooled lines. Crazy selection. The Chimay was yummy. Belgian and Belgian style American beers par excellence. Place is packed almost all the time. Fun crowd in there. The menu is slowly expanding but it is top notch as far as quality. note****** Itís obvious that Cecil 24 is not an honest reviewer. I have been in Trappeze a few times lately and they definitely are not what youíd call a domestic beer joint. Those guys have St. Bernardus Abt 12, Left Hand Milk Stout, Old Rasputin, Trois Pistoles, Averyís Salvation, and Chimay on tap to name a few. I have had all of those beers there in the past two weeks and each one of them was served to me in prime condition in proper glassware. To Read Cecil24ís review youíd think this place served natty lite in pitchers for 3 bucks with hotdogs. The reality is that if you want to drink the best selection of beer in Athens you go to this bar.

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.

This place is in my top picks to stop when I am anywhere in GA. I will drive hours out of the way to visit them. Entire staff had a passion for the beers. Something that is uncommon in the race to make money in the craft beer market. Wish they were closer to us!!!!

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.

What can I say - I love Athens. So, sitting outside while the new belgium crew was setting up the Lips of Faith tour was quite nice. Inside looks welcoming as well. The selection was very nice even though the menus were about six months out of date. Out waiter was knowledgeable and quite accomadating since we were there over 2 hours with a 9 month old. Value really canít be beat as Athens is such an inexpensive town to begin with. Overall, I just wish this was there 10 years ago when I was in school.

I couldnít find anything bad to say about this place if I tried. The staff was sharp, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The tap selection was amazing. The half pours allowed us to try much more than full pours would have and we were not disappointed. Canít wait to come back!

When you think of a college bar you think loud music, hook-ups and a wall full of macro beers. While Trappeze Pub is located close to the University of Georgia this bar is for students, professors and others who take the study of beer seriously. All draft beers can be ordered in half or full pours giving you the opportunity to try a variety of the nearly 40 taps, including many offerings from nearby Terrapin Beer Company and - not surprising since Trappeze founder Eric Johnson developed the recipes - Wild Heavenís Ode to Mercy and Invocation. The food is above average pub grub. My personal favorites are the beer cheese soup (made with Victory Prima Pils) with Terrapin spent grain bread.

Really enjoyed this place after stopping in during a 4000 mile BBQ road trip. Great draft list, and a more impressive bottle list. Servers were knowledgeable and very helpful as well...although we did sit at the bar. Didnít eat, but food did look good.

A great place but definitely a college place.
