I had heard such great things about Trappeze and had always wanted to visit. I finally had an opportunity over the Christmas break and drove over to Athens from Atlanta.

The bar and restaurant were very cozy and the service was by far the best we have ever experienced at any noteable beer bar.

We were offered tastes of Terrapin's newest brew and some Christmas offerings from Belgium. My Wife was delighted to have a chance to try the beers before making her selection.

We did have lunch and the food was tasty and well prepared. My Wife was very happy with the vegetarian selection she ordered.

The server who I think must have been an owner signed us up for an email service to let us know about future beer dinners.

I love Brick Store Pub, but Trappeze is just as good if not better.

5 Stars!!!

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.

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.

In the oversaturated bar scene of Athens, GA, Trappeze is truly a diamond in the rough. They appreciate beer here and it shows. The bartenders are knowledgeable and always up to talk beer. They offer half pours, which is really nice if you want to try a variety of different beers. The food is good too, especially the rosemary garlic fries and the complimentary boiled peanuts.

The selection is what really stands out, though. They have a wide variety of styles, both on tap and bottled, that will appeal to many palates. I was pleasantly surprised to find Dieu du Ciel's Péché Mortel here. There are beer-oriented magazines and newspapers available if you want to read about the scene and find out about upcoming events. Oftentimes there are local brewers who will come in and hangout. Plus, they have a really cool environmentally friendly toilet.

My one criticism is that the menu is frequently outdated. I realize that they have beers coming and going all the time, so it's really no big deal. Overall, it's hard to beat Trappeze. If you love beer and find yourself in Athens this is a mandatory stop.

There was a lot of buzz going around about this place from friends that lived in Athens .So I was super excited to try their bottled Belgium beers and try all the tasty ones ive yet to sample .Me and my girlfriend enjoyed about 6 beers from there amazing beer menu .They have 2 sizes so you don't have to break the bank when wanting to try a new beer .If you go there and do not try the bread with orange butter you will miss out ,it goes well with there many strong ales .If I ever go back to Athens this is my first stop before hitting the many local pubs and the awesome terrapin brewery which is only a short cab ride away .Only wish my town was more like Athens great beer town great food town ,check this place out you won't be disappointed .

My womern & I have mastered the 3-hour-drive (from Charlotte, NC) weekend vacation. We visit Athens at least once a year and it is, without a doubt, one of the best college towns I've spent time in - great food & bars all over an area easily walked.

Trappeze is an excellent pub with amazing draft and bottle selections (check what they've got online), wonderful (bit pricey but so worth it) food, excellent atmosphere & laid back beer-smart staff eager to pour you a sampler & brew-chat.

We always stay at the Foundry Park Inn, free shuttle service drop & pick. Don't forget to visit Terrapin Brewery while in town. Too many good bars & food joints to mention. Well worth the drive.
