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.

Wow!!!!!!!!! This is the PLACE
The beer selection are outstanding
Service are great and knowledgeable about beer
A hint gem in Athens
Trappeze is a great pub with both tables and bar seating. My only complaint is that when I have sat at the tables the service has been pretty slow. However, the selection of beer her is second to none. The taps rotate regularly, and there ar always interesting choices (recently I have had Double Bastard, Oak Aged Storm King, and Left Hand Widdershins). The servers are friendly and willing to help the beer illiterate make solid selections. The only food I have had is the Terrapin bread, and it is great. Overall, this place is heaven for beer geeks. Highly recommended.

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.

Athens is a college town with a rapidly growing community of craft beer lovers, and Trappeze has played a huge role in the education of beer drinkers in Athens. Beyond that intangible sentiment held by local Athens patrons, this place holds its own with beer bars in much larger US cities. The draft list always seems thoughtfully selected, with well-suited seasonals and a couple taps of locally-made Terrapin. The bottle list is very extensive, but due its size, the printed list probably isnít current. All of the bottles are visible from the end of the bar, however, so with a little effort, the current bottle selection can be perused. Special casks and new releases are often featured on certain weeknights, but nothing is regularly scheduled. The bartenders have always been quite knowledgeable about all the beer served, but also honest that their beer knowledge does have limits-a refreshing change from some servers elsewhere whoíd rather try to assert their dominance by flexing their know-how of anything beer. I do advise sitting at the beer bar or at least the tables near the bar. The entire facility is divided between two sides: one with a beer bar and one with more tables and a coffee bar. From my experience, the coffee bar side of the place (where you can still order beer) provides somewhat lackluster service, although it is generally quieter for studying or group conversation. A couple months ago, Trappeze finally completed a new kitchen and made a few additions to its menu, including Belgian beer mussels and a burger. While the menu doesnít rotate or anything, the guys in the kitchen seem to jump at any chance to be creative, preparing some special plates for nights when a brewer or rep visits. They also occasionally host a beer dinner, but Iíve never been as tickets always sell out quickly. Overall, a wonderful bar that cares for good beer, and presents it in an approachable manner.

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.
