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.

Awesome place! Very old world feel with the large amounts of wood booths and nice bar; no TVs, so all about the beer and conversation. Service was great, but I was one of like 4 people there, so the bartender was attentive; he definitely knew his stuff too. Selection was great, didnít check out the bottle list, but it looked like they had about four reach-ins worth with a vintage area. Value is on par with what you expect, and they offer half pours, generous with samples, and flights of really cool stuff. Definitely the best place in town; looking forward to frequenting it.

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!

Visited on a hot Wednesday afternoon. Pleasant and cool inside, and not so crowded. Large dining area and bar area with seven booths and space for maybe 15 people at the bar. Nice, more or less eclectic, beer list -- 33 taps (maybe half from the South, and 12 of them from Georgia) and 250+ bottles. No bottle list, and I had to glance around at the several coolers -- bar guy simply said, "I havenít counted lately". Service was okay, uncaring and nothing special. Prices are fairly high: half-pours ranging from $2.75 to $5.25 and 120z. pours from $4.50 to $9.00. Two specialty flights of four x 5oz. pours were on: one flight of Lagunitas brews for $14 and one of Evil Twin for $28 (ouch!), and both flights included some rarer beers. Limited wine and cocktail list. Fairly loud music on the system: country, alt-pop, and classic rock. Beers are in great condition and poured carefully. A very nice place -- great for the southern US, but doesnít really stack up with the best ones in other parts of the country.

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.

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.

Very nice place with some great beers on tap. Certainly the best in Athens. I had Ten Fiddy with cherries, a beer Iíve wanted to try for a while. Hopefully this place does well. They were slammed on NYE. Even so, the service was great. Iím looking forward to returning for some food later this year. *** Several visits later, this bar continues to impress. Great casks, great tap selection, great events, and a great atmosphere. One of the best. Was glad to hear they will be expanding into the large coffee shop next door.

Visited during our stay in Atlanta area. Nice bar packed into a college town that doesnít seem to completely fit. That being said, a nice setup and location. They had over 25+ taps and an extensive bottle list. Nothing overly special, very solid, but hardly any locals to chose from. The food was good, nothing special, but worth lunch or dinner. I think you got what you paid for as prices were not super high. I thought Overall it was a great place caught in a college town. Definitely recommend if you are passing thru Athens or taking in a GA game
