An exceptional beer bar; one of the best I've ever seen (surprisingly enough). The food was great, if pricey, and the service was impeccable. Recommendations were spot-on, knowledge was robust and expansive, and samples were given freely. The selection of glassware particularly pleased me. One of the owners (a brewer himself) mingled with patrons and seemed genuinely pleased to do so. The bottle list is unbelievablely large (including a range of JW Lee Harvest ales dating back twelve years) and the many taps contained nary a bad beer.
Truly worth going out of your way to visit.

I had to rate this place and I don't do ratings generally
I had been here when the place opened 5 years ago and was wowed then
They have raised the bar and then some since then. The food was top notch and a great value. Draft list exactly what you'd expect from a place rated this highly. The staff is very well trained and knowledgable In short I couldn't find a single chink anywhere. From half pours at lunch to amazing quality delivered at a price on the food menu I just don't know why people go anywhere else in Athens

An absolute jewel for great beer in Athens. Very knowledgeable staff combined with a vast selection. Their kitchen staff does a very good job as well. Always a great place for fine beer and great food in Athens. They always have at least 12 different craft brews on tap, and no telling how many in bottles. One of my favorites.

This was my number one beer destination in Athens, but not quite the best.
33 taps at the Trappeze, with locals like Terrapin, Mother Earth, Sweetwater, Wild Heaven… plus Sierra, Avery, Left Hand, North Coast Raspy, Bell’s Java, Bruery 5 Rugs and a bunch of Belgian and German brews. I chose a delicious Terrapin Wake-n-Bake Imperial Stout.
The bottle selection is even better, with a ton of vintages, sours, barrel-aged brews and stuff at very fair prices. They also offer bomber pours and ½ pour of all drafts, which is something I love.
The joint itself looks very college-town-like, and it is manned by college-town dudes and dudettes. Our young scruffy server looked like he had smoked one too many blunts, but he wasn’t terrible. The bar is the area to be at, and there is also a restaurant side with tables and booths.
Short food menu with some goodies, not very well executed. We had boiled peanuts (overcooked and mushy), pimento cheese (funky), a beef slider (fine but cooked to a leather-grey) and beer-cheese soup (way too starchy). Still, they try to be different.
A good bar for sure, but not the best experience.
