Visited here late on a Friday evening in mid August ’17. Great location in the downtown Athens. Has kind of an old timey bar feel to it Only have four of their own on tap at once and they were out of one when we were there; A Berliner Weisse, a a Milk Stout and a a SMaSH IPA. Beers were decent, but I didn’t send a letter home after having them. Pretty solid menu with reasonable prices, I had the ribs and they were great. We’ll call this place decent.
Brewery a few blocks away from Trappeze, Creature Comforts and R&P. Dim lit brewpub/bar feel with their own beers on draft plus some macros. When we were there they had 4 house beers - APA, a cream, a pumpkin and porter. Pretty standard stuff, the beers were far from good but the service was great and attentive. Food is decent.
Dimly lit interior is inviting and relaxing. Their beers are darned good, if other phenomenal. TVs were off when I was there, and musicis subtle. Servers are quick and alert, and make you feel welcome. Beers are their own offerings, but those are good. Food is darned good, if not phenomenon mental.
Small old feeling place right in the downtown area. Four beers on tap, all seemed average for their styles, but the styles were generally ones I wouldn’t drink. Cheap wings on Thursday night, and the stout wings saved the night. Other food was good as well. However, 8 PM on Thursday and we had a half hour wait for 4 of us to sit, then when an 8 spot opened up it took them another 15 minutes to clear off the table. If there was great beer during the wait that would have been one thing, but.... Good pricing though as I spent about 1/3 as much as I did at Trappeze. Pick your poisons I guess.
Rustic old vibe, especially with all the copper. Attentive and kind service that at least knew about their beers, even if it was just surface. Just four beers on tap when I was there, but full bar otherwise. I went on wing night, Thursdays offer $0.55 wings, and they weren’t bad, but I avoided the sauce of the week: tomato soup with grilled cheese, as interesting as it sounded. Pints were also discounted, so overall a great value. The beers are all pretty standard, nothing bad and nothing great.
Very nice brewpub, old feel to it, and plenty of seating, pretty good beers, and good service, met the owner, nice guy, and seemed very enthusiastic. I went on a Monday night so it was quiet, downtown location, and easy to walk to, would definately go back!!

Copper kettles right up front, copper pots hanging from the ceiling, copper pennies cover the bar. I get it. A beer class with forty students walked in, stressing the staff a but, but the still took good care of me. I didn’t know you could major in beer drinking at the University of Georgia, but it doesn’t surprise me. Only four beers, all average.
Place did not open until 4pm.
The overall setting looks old and like it could use a good paint job.
I was interested to find out more about some of the beers and overall feel of the place. One thing I learned about travels is that you can always tell the overall standing of a place by how clean the bathrooms are, and sure enough, the place disappointed me.
Bathrooms were dirty, after observing the way the kitchen staff was carrying itself and peeking in their fridge, I promptly decided to pass on the food menu.
Decided to turn my attention to the beer menu. Sadly enough, they only keep 4 beers on tap, with a weekly cask.
Beers were ok, with an impressive mocha porter.What is even more strange is that they have triple the selection on bottles. Odd indeed for a brewpub to promote its beers.I left very disappointed and never thought twice about going back. It is worth visiting and getting a beer sampler, but with the standing of Trappeze right down the road, Copper Creek really pales in comparison.
