Went for Sunday morning brunch. Has a minimalist-hipster decor going on, with bare concrete floors, old repurposed doors and windows, and unadorned pine tables. The servers were very attentive and excited about the food and beer. The draft list is excellent, focusing on locals (lots of Terrapin and Creature Comforts), but with very good regional and national beers. The food was relatively simple, but well made and with a nice twist. The beer prices are fantastic, and even better with half pours. More than that, even the food and wine are very reasonably priced. This is a very nice bar, with good prices, a great draft list, and generally good vibe. I hope to be back soon.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!

Great location in downtown Athens. Walk through a large dining area to get to the bar. It was fairly dead on a Monday night which was good for me. The had a nice tap list that focused on local and interesting brews. Crowd seemed to be a bit younger as it is a college town. Beer was served in correct glassware and service was quick. Prices were about average. Overall a nice place to have a beer.

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.
