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.

This is my favorite beer bar in Athens. Great space and a good crowd of appreciative beer lovers. Last time I was there they had a bunch of Avery beers and you have to try the beer cheese soup and make sure you get some spent grain bread with it.

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.

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.

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.
