This bar has the best selection of any bar I have I have ever been too. They have more unheard of, micro brews, and Belgian beers than I have ever seen. The female bartenders are hot and give great recommendations with great service. The male bartenders are fast and efficient, and the door guys actually remember you. Best bar in Athens hands down!!

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.

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!

Outstanding selection of tap and bottle beer. The service is excellent. They have 29 on tap and over 170 bottles now with new additions every week plus the occasional cask beer. This is definitely a pub for the beer enthusiast and well worth the trip.

Iím not sure if the rater below (cecil24) actually went to the right place, but the food at Trappeze is limited right now, but includes some really tasty, imaginative dishes all made with beer - very nice. And you would have to know nothing about beer to say that Trappeze has mostly domestic beer. The beer selection is one of the best of any pub in the country. There is heavy emphasis on the best handcrafted beers from the US and Europe. No standard American lagers are offered at all - just excellent quality IPAs, Belgian-style ales, Imperial Stouts, wheat beers, oak-aged ales, German bocks and doppelbocks, and the list goes on and on. Trappeze is all about excellent beer - defintely worthy of a visit for any true beer lover.

This place is my favorite spot in Athens. As good or better than the Brick Store even, in many ways. Unfortunately it is not as big as the Brick Store though, but it could always move in the future. A ton of beer, and the best thing is that the taps are constantly changing.

this place is fantastic! The selection is as good as youíre going to get in Georgia right now and theyíre always trying to bring in more new stuff. The service is usually fantastic and the ambiance is cool, too. no blaring music or distracting TVís.

This place is new and happening. I donít know how it compares to Aromas except that it is much more about beer. They have jerked my palate out of wine for now and renewed my interest in beer. The ambiance is appropriate without being steeped in antiquity. The service is quick and friendly. They offer shot tastings of any tap. They supposedly handle ~200 beers with about 25+ taps. They slant towards the Belgian style so maybe when they offer food they will do long thin fries, mustards, and maybe steamed mussels.
They take care of their beer lines, using chilled lines and Italian flow rate control on select taps soon. Theyíll do special requests if they can get it. Lets keep this place and give beer its due.

Easily one of the best pubs in the country hands down. The selection here is quite amazing...(donít come here wanting macro domestic swill!) The food is pretty damn good as well! As others have said it does get quite busy in the evenings but the service still is very good.
This is a must stop if in the southeast US.
