I've been coming here at least weekly since I discovered it this summer.
Atmosphere - Great atmosphere, especially for a bar in a college town. Never too loud to hold a conversation, even when the restaraunt is packed.
Quality - The best beer available in the state is either on tap, or in the bottles at Trappeze. And your beer will always be served in appropriate glassware.
Service - The bartenders here are top notch. They all really know their beer and are happy to make recommendations, compare notes and chat if the bar isn't too busy. The wait staff for the restaraunt is also very well educated on the beer menu. I've never seen any bartender/server be snobby to a BMC drinker in fact they're always ready to make suggestions. True Beer Advocates if you will.
Selection - Trappeze taps at least 5 new beers a week, all top notch. And their bottle list is exhaustive to say the least.
Food - I would honestly come here to eat pretty often even if I wasn't in to craft beer. I've never had anything on the menu I wouldn't order again, and the prices are very fair.
Value - The place is a great value, delicious and rare beers on tap. The most expensive item on the beer menu hardly ever exceeds $8 for a full pour, and its always something world class. They also offer half pours so you can try more beer.
Overall - I'm seriously going to miss this place when I graduate. Great people serving great beer, plus events with breweries, monthly beer academys, and unbeatable value and selection.

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.
