This place was where everybody in town told us to go. And while I did like it a lot, I didnít fall in love with it. Maybe I was just in a weird mood. We went late night, so the place was pretty empty, and we were able to get a seat at the bar without difficulty. The selection was definitely extensive, and prices were fair for the mostpart. The staff was not overly friendly, but they were fairly knowledgeable and we had a good time, even though we were only able to stay for an hour or so.

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.

Surprised to find a place like this in a college town, just doesnít fit here, but its a great spot. 30 taps, some real gems like Gozu, everything comes in a half pours for the ticker. The draft list was impressive, but wish it focused slightly more on local stuff. The bottle list wasnít all the impressive, basically stuff thatís available anywhere. Vintage list didnít have anything rar. The food was quite excellent and you canít beat the prices. Service was quick and knowledgable. Come for the drafts and food and you wonít be disappointed, not one of the top bars in the world, top tier for the US.

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

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.

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.

A not-so-typical Athens bar. As far as the beer selection, this place is pretty amazing. Itís always packed, and it can be hard to place a beer order sometimes, but the servers are pretty cool.

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.

I did not enjoy the food and they had mostly domestic beer.
