Took a day trip to Athens yesterday specifically to check out Terrapin Brewery and Trappeze.

At Trappeze, we had a party of 7 and were seated very quickly and we're treated as well as expected considering we had a couple of already-drunk people in our group. The atmosphere is kind of like a "grown-up college bar" -- don't really remember seeing UGA decor but had the usual downtown Athens bar feel -- but with an extremely better beer selection.

Trappeze has a solid draft and bottle list, and I was really pleased there was a half-pour option. The food comes in small portions and is moderately-priced. I had Southern Tier's Creme Brulee half-pour and the fish and chips and spent around $16 after tax and tip.

I went to Trappeze hoping it could compare to the Brick Store Pub in terms of food and beer, and I believe it does. (832 characters)

Finally got around to checking this place out on a Saturday night in July and was not disappointed. Large bottle selection and the tap list was huge and mostly amazing beers. I had a tough time choosing, but went with Festina Peche, Monster Rouge, and cask conditioned Storm King. Didn't order any food, but the menu had a good number of choices and place is also a coffee bar. Service was slow, but the waiter was polite and friendly. I'm sure the place can get fairly crowded when college is in session, but it wasn't too bad for a weekend night and the booth seating helps.

Definitely enjoyed my trip to Trappeze and would say that along with Terrapin, it's a must stop for any beer fan visiting Athens. (707 characters)

Hands down the best bar in Athens. In addition to the large bottled beer selection, they rotate an incredible amount of taps. They carry probably about 30 beers on draft at a time, all of exceptional quality. And they rotate these beers. They do not update their website often, so it is hard to know which beers they currently have, but you are sure to find something different that you like every time you go. Servers are always nice, and food is very good as well. But you will not find a better draft selection around town. (526 characters)

My favorite pub in Athens, well, my only pub in Athens. Even though I spent 4-5 years there in the seventies, I'm not there very often now, but try to make Trappeze a frequent stop. If the other pubs are comparable, then they are very good.

Clientele is upscale. Selection is incredible. Don't expect to drink American light beers here. Food menu is good and inexpensive. Try the beef cooked in Chimay.

Staff is very knowledgeable and is intent on assisting in selecting the right beer for you.

Great pub in the middle of the UGA atmosphere. Right next door to a popular concert hall in Athens. On concert nights, expect crowds. Also any later than 9:30 on weekends will be crowded.

Clientele age is varied. College juniors up to senior citizens.

Overalll, a very pleasant experience in downtown Athens GA. (812 characters)

Friends of ours took us there. No complaints. This is a wonderful craft beer bar with great selections. I had an eisbock cask and a Wells Bombardier. So many to drink, so little time. They'll let you sample anything on the wall for free. The food was also great. I had the carbonade my wife had the reuben. The food was excellent. My wife had a Bell's Expedition Stout on draft and it was good. Athens has lots of great places to go, but for a very well rounded craft beer bar and fine food menu for a one stop, the Trappeze is the place to go. We absolutely loved it.

The atmosphere was very cool. Dark wood benches, cool bar, lots of windows. And lots of beer. About 40 on draft and lots of others in bottles. Check out their website.

If you get to Athens and you want good beer, go to the Trappeze Pub. Check out their website. (834 characters)

I originally stopped in based on the BA rating while on a business trip to Athens. And I recently made another stop while passing through the area with my wife.

There are three rooms. One is a smaller bar that has a coffee house feel. They have six on tap in that room. Then there's a small middle room with seating but no bar. And then there's a larger bar room where most of the taps are. It's got a nice simple decor with taps and beer signs on display. The two bar rooms have large, comfortable wooden booths that would be great for a group.

Trappeze has large tap selection (40+?) and the quality is very strong. Most are from the east coast but there are quite a few from the west coast along with a handful of Belgians. They're a great source for local Terrapin brews. On the second trip, I thought the selection was weak on hop centric beers.

Trappeze is singly focused on craft beer. It's about as good a beer bar as you'll find in the southeast. (958 characters)

Trappeze is a great pub with both tables and bar seating. My only complaint is that when I have sat at the tables the service has been pretty slow. However, the selection of beer her is second to none. The taps rotate regularly, and there ar always interesting choices (recently I have had Double Bastard, Oak Aged Storm King, and Left Hand Widdershins). The servers are friendly and willing to help the beer illiterate make solid selections. The only food I have had is the Terrapin bread, and it is great. Overall, this place is heaven for beer geeks. Highly recommended. (573 characters)

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!!! (806 characters)

I am originally from Georgia, went to school at the University of Georgia in Athens, and currently live in Providence, RI. My brother nd I, while attending college, would go to the "Trap" almost everyday after classes to have a beer and to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. There is always a wonderful selection of beers, and because they are always rotating their selection, there seemed to be something new to try all the time. If you are going to visit Athens, or even be close, visit this wonderful pub! (505 characters)

What can I say that hasn't been said already? I'm amazed every time I pass through Athens and stop by Trappeze. On the cutting edge of beer without one single ounce of pretention. If I ever decide to open another bar, I'm going to ask Eric to be my partner. Trappeze is everything you can ask for in a bar and so much more. I own a bar in Jacksonville and words can not express the level of effort and work behind the scenes that must go into Trappeze to make it one of the best bars in the world. (497 characters)

Trappeze has an excellent selection and they are always getting new beers. The wait staff is attentive to the customers as well as exceedingly knowledgeable. They can recommend beers based on your preferences and are more than willing to offer you samples of the many beers they have on tap. Also, as opposed to many places, each beer is served in an appropriate style of glass. The food is good including offerings made from leftovers from the nearby Terrapin brewery. Overall a great experience, and a place I will return to to try many new beers. (549 characters)

Beer selection was great. Waitress was good as well. Food was really just not up to par.. They've got a lot of work to do here. Not only is the selection limited, but everything we had was just alright if not bland and tasteless. I'll stop any day for their taps, but I doubt I'd eat here again. The one thing I've always said about BSP is not only is the beer fantastic, but I sincerely enjoy my dinner there as well. As far as atmosphere goes, I love the tall booths and general layout of the place. But it sure doesn't have the warmth it could. Maybe I just went during a slow hour as well. More people would have probably added to the atmosphere. (650 characters)

Went on a day trip to Athens and stopped here for lunch. We sat in the restaurant/coffees shop side. The decor was a lot of beer memorabilia with wood booths. Much to my surprise, they had Bell's Expedition Stout on tap. I lucked out as I got the last of it and it was on the house because it wasn't a full pour (I got about 3/4 of a pint). The food was good. I got a roast beef sandwich on sour dough (beer braised in St. Bernardus) and my wife got a pulled pork sandwich (pork braised in Unibroue Ephemere). The menu contains items made with beer. and the service was excellent. The waitress even knew her beers. This is a must visit bar in Athens. (650 characters)

This place is great. The bar itself spans the full store lengths including a coffee shop, a sitting area, and the bar. The bar itself is filled with wide selections of beers that cannot be found at any other bar. They also are the only bar in Athens that stocks proper glassware for each style of beer. The staff is polite and knowledgeable, many times offering suggestions based on your personal taste. The coffee shop also expands on the atmosphere with spacious seating, good window views, and of course, coffee/tea.

Best place in Athens for quality beer. (560 characters)

Having lived in Athens prior to '04, I was excited to get back and see the emerging beer scene since GA allowed +6% ABV beers. Trappeze was a must vist for this reason. The space is huge, and obviously has had some work done, as I remember this place being a rather dingy building years ago. There is an interesting mix of beer enthusiasts and normal bar patrons. The tap beer selection was amazing, I must give them credit, the wide assortment available included DFH Palo Santo and DR Rabid Duck, which have not been around anywhere in Atlanta for a little while now. I would say the taps are what Trappeze hangs their hat on, bottles are an impressive list too, but the taps really blew me away. The folks that worked there were nice enough, and very helpful, its wrong to compare anywhere in the SE to the Brick Store, so I will just leave it at the beer knowledge seemed a little more variable depending on who you spoke to. The food options were somewhat limited, not bad, but nothing fantastic either. I am not a huge fan of duck, but some of the folks at my table had the duck tacos and enjoyed them. Overall, a great place, probably the only other true beer bar in Georgia other than the Brick, and a welcome addition to downtown Athens. I'll be back for sure, but may just stick to beers. (1,297 characters)

My first visit to Trappeze was over the holidays. They had a lot on tap, but unfortunately, we came in at the end of a week, and a lot of what I wanted was out.

Still, our large group (8) ended up in a big booth next door (with the more "coffee house" feel). Our server was very helpful, and gracious about the selection. My ESP was apparently on, since I managed to order a half dozen beers they were out of (taps and bottles!), which another of my mates, a regular, said was very unusual.

All in all, very satisfying. The atmosphere is good; not quite the Brick Store, with its Old World feel, but downtown Athens is a great place to just walk around at night. I'll definitely be back. (689 characters)

Placed in the heart of Athens near all the shops and city hall. The interior is somewhat old timey, with wood architecture all around. There are different rooms for seating. The bar area is somewhat roomy, not sure how many stools were there. Parking outside is metered. Depending on where you park there are time limits. Right outside the pub is two hour maximum parking.

I can't recall exactly how many beers are on tap. The taps are listed with descriptions in a small booklet, so there are enough to fill a few page. There are also a few chalkboards that list what's available. There is a cask selection as well. The prices seemed very low to me, however this may be because I'm used to prices in D.C.

The food seemed decent, nothing spectacular, but it wasn't bad either. I'd say it's a step above bar food, but well below anything you would get at a restaurant.

A great place to go for beer after shopping downtown. There are plenty of taps and good food, so you can't go wrong. Recommended. (1,002 characters)

Went to Trapeze this weekend when we went to Athens to escape life for a couple of days. Stopped in at around 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon and the place was rather slow besides a few students studying. We had a seat at an oversized wooden booth. The bartender referred us to the huge chalkboard for the tap list and it was impressive. Lots of Terrapin, Stone, Oskar Blues, Victory, Belgians and many more. At least 30 taps. It was a bit overwhelming but beautiful. I went with a Oskar Blues Whiskey Barrel Aged Gordon and I must say it was impressive. Later had a Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin for desert. Everything arrived in proper glassware, so overall high marks for quality and selection.

Service was decent. I think the bartender was close to the end of her shift because she was a bit aloof, but still very helpful. Bring your ID because I get the feeling they card everyone because I look well over thirty and they were right on top of me.

Food was good as well. Its funny looking at the menu because maybe one page front and back is the food and the other 20 or so pages is nothing but beer. Awesome. I had the bratwurst hoagie and my lady had the rueben and both were great. We also had the Terrapin Beer Bread made from the spent rye and malted sugar with orange honey butter, that shit is stupid good and only $2.50.

Overall, everything is incredibly reasonable and enjoyable. A beer and a sandwich will run you about 15 bucks. Not bad in my eyes. Good times and I will absolutely be back. (1,509 characters)

I think all the other reviews have explained the layout well enough, so I won't belabor the description. There was a group of 7 of us and we were able to snag the big corner booth next to the front window.
Quality was quite good. They had some beers on tap I have not seen at Brick Store, like the Ommegang Chocolate Stout and they also had a cask of Victory Hop Devil. Selection was excellent. At least 30 taps and an extensive bottle selection.
Service was good. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable. The service got a little slow as the place got busier, but it was not slow enough to detract from the experience.
Food was quite good. I had the pulled pork sandwich that I really enjoyed and my wife had the Rueben sandwich which was also very good. We all split the cheese plate for dessert and everyone seemed happy with the selection and quality of the cheeses.
All the prices were pretty decent. Most of the more "common" craft beers were about $5-6 with the higher gravity selections starting at about $6. Food was reasonable too with most entrees below $10.
Overall, this was a great stop in Athens and could really fit in well in any city based on the quality of the beer and food offered. It may not be quite world-class yet, but it is a very high quality offering for the area and the state. Definitely recommended if you are in the area. (1,358 characters)

Aside from the Brick Store and the brewpubs, this is the only other really serious beer bar in Georgia, although there are also plenty of other places that are solidly second tier. The key to this place and to the Brick Store is the knowledge and passion of the owners that allows them to seek out and secure rare offerings from the distributors, and then serve them at proper temperature and in proper glassware. When you order a couple of hundred different bottled beers of fine quality and keep 30+ taps of similar quality stuff- and you don't let any of it get old- distributors listen when you request special stuff, and are more likely to offer the good stuff up unasked. This place is located on a nice corner in Athens where you are slightly more likely to grab a parking space than elsewhere in the city. The space has a nice bar in it, and lots of wood, but its pretty small and the annex next door that used to be the deli/coffee space lacks ambiance. Overall its not bad but it is a little cold and could use a touch more room and character. Everything seems top notch, but the glassware program is not quite as extensive as the Brick Store's. Servers are relatively knowledgeable and quite friendly, although its usually pretty busy. The food is solid, plentiful, and cheap, and there are some interesting pub stule offerings. I had the quite decent pulled pork sandwich with a huge side of decent mac and cheese. Nice beer selection, with about 1/2 craft beers and 1/2 Belgians and other nice imports. Nothing truly special while I was there, but I've seen some nice special offerings on their mailing list. They also regularly have beer dinners. A nice place and a fine addition to the Georgia beer scene. A must go to if you find yourself in Athens, and worth the drive from Atlanta for special events. (1,818 characters)

Without a doubt, Athens' premier beer pub, and quite possibly one of the best in the country. Yeah, I said it. My review is long overdue, having been fortunate enough to be among the few invited to the preview opening back in December of last year.

The main bar area/room consists of wooden booths lining the front windows and a long L-shaped bar featuring 31 taps and one beer engine tap for casks. There are roughly 4-5 coolers in this area as well filled with bottles, some behind the bar and some at the ends of the bar on both sides. Directly opposite the long side of the bar is a middle section/patio that can be opened to the outside air and serves as a connection to the other side of the pub. There are a few tables and tall chairs scattered in this area. They have also recently added a few sidewalk tables with metal railings separating them from the pedestrian traffic, which is great for outside lounging.

The other side of the pub is the roomier of the two main areas, featuring a smaller bar with 6 taps, more booths lining the front windows and several longer tables in the middle. This brings the grand tap total to a stellar 38. There are also bottle coolers on this side as well.

The patio area has a large mural of L'Abbey de Notre Dame de Scourmont (Chimay), while both sides feature many great pieces of beer paraphernalia. There is a long blackboard opposite the main bar (look high) with all the draft selections, and a superb menu with lengthy descriptions of the 250+ bottles. The food is top-notch as far as pub food goes, even having a vegetarian entry. Awesome glassware selection, and if it's not always the right brewery, it's nearly always the correct style. Sometimes Fri/Sat night can get a bit crowded, but the adjoining space helps alleviate this tremendously.

Fantastic service, selection, ambiance...hell, just an all-around awe inspiring beer bar. If you love great beer and you haven't been here whilst in Athens, I don't know what's wrong with you. Get there, now! Long live Trappeze! (2,030 characters)

Revisited this gem before and after the debacle that was the Bama v. UGA football game.

Atmosphere is really nice. They expanded since the last time I was there and now they have ample space. A few wooden booths and stools at the bar in one room, tables and tall chairs in the adjacent room that sometimes opens up to the outside, and more booths in the new area. There are also a few tables outside.

Quality is very good. I can only remember a handful of times when I haven't gotten the correct brewery's name on the glassware. Even if the brewery isn't accurate, the glassware always is, and it's served at room temperature.

Service is good, although I think it's better if you're a regular. I recognized most of the staff from last spring when I used to frequent the place a lot more, so they know what they're doing.

Selection is great. They have access to the Terrapin brews before just about anyone else, and I think they normally have around 25 or so taps. They also had Storm King on cask while I was there, and that was a nice treat. Others included 4-5 Stone offerings, Collaboration not Litigation, Breckenridge's 471 Small Batch, and other micros along with 4-5 Belgians.

Value is very reasonable. It's Athens, so everything is cheaper.

Overall this is the best place to go in Athens for sheer volume of great beer. Aroma's in Five Points is somewhat comparable, but there's not as much seating and only 5 beers on on-tap at any given time. Anyhoo, if you're in the area, be sure to stop by Trappeze.

EDIT: Tried the beer cheddar soup and was very happy. The group I was with had the hummus plate which was solid as well. Tasty food. (1,652 characters)

Trappeze Pub is located in downtown Athens. It's a cool little joint with an adjoining coffee shop/deli on one side, and the bar proper on the other. The inside is decorated with various and sundry beer memorabilia, the bar is of decent size, and detached tap handles decorate the area above the bar.

The quality of beers at the Trappeze pub is second only to the Brick Store pub in my experience, but they're still getting the 5. A few Belgians on tap (including Chimay Tripel), and tons of great American microbrews to boot. They get limited releases and specials from Terrapin, and when I was there they had a number of Stone beers on tap. Service was fairly quick, though I didn't really push the limits with questions about beer. Each brew is served in its proper glassware at correct temperature.

Selection is great--they had a well constructed beer menu that looked professional, was broken down by style, and gave great summations of each beer offered. Trappeze Pub has more taps than the BSP (I'd say around 25 or so), and each one is holding something delicious.

The food wasn't anything special, but it wasn't bad, either. I got the bratwurst, which came with kettle-cooked potato chips. The gentlemen next to me both had sandwiches that looked decent.

The bottom line is that the Trappeze Pub is a great place to get a beer in Athens. It's about 2 blocks from the UGA campus, and has a wonderful beer selection. I'd strongly recommend this place to beer purists and novices alike, as they serve everything in its proper glassware at appropriate temperature, but do have some more accessible options for those not quite wanting a DIPA or Quad (though they did have Ruination and Big Hoppy Monster when I was there, thankfully!). (1,743 characters)

I stopped here while driving around downtown the day before the UGA/Bama game. Had heard great things about this place and when I saw it I had to stop. Very pleasant vibes, pretty small and cozy. I sat at the bar, which wasn't too big but the crowd wasn't either. A few booths were all I noticed. As a UGA fan, it was easy to carry on a conversation with those at the bar. I met a husband and wife from Raleigh who were very kind and passionate about their football. The husband was a Buckeye fan but the wife was a Dawgs fan. I had to remind the husband of OSU's record against the SEC in bowl games, which was a kick for his wife. Great tap selection including a rotating cask beer I believe. They had Storm King on cask when I stopped in. The Stone lineup was there, which I was happy to see. An amazing bottled selection which was well organized alphabetically by beer name rather than brewery. I suppose this makes it a bit easier for those working there. There were way too many beers that I wanted to try but I didn't have the time or money to get to them. I tried the Sun Ray from Terrapin, along with the Pale Ale and Smoked Porter from Stone. It looks like they constantly have great beers on tap, as the handles above the bar made me drool a bit. Not only was the beer selection as good or better than most places I've been (very impressive for the size of the place) but the food was great, too. It's more of a pub than restaurant so they have soups and sandwiches for the most part. I tried the California Turkey and Swiss, which was very tasty. It came with chips and Weihenstephan Honey Mustard, which was very cool to me. They also had a bread on the menu made from Rye and other ingredients from Terrapin beers. The service was very good as well. A nice young lady who kept a smile on her face the whole time I was there. Pints cost a bit more than I'm used to but other than that this is a great new place that I'm glad to have found here in Athens; the price of the beer is easily worth it for the atmosphere and conversation, let alone an unbelievable list of beers to boast. Their menu is very well organized by styles also, a nice touch. I will definitely stop in again soon. (2,197 characters)

To update an earlier post, the Saison Dupont is now the Avec. This bar is everything you have wanted in a gourmet beer pub in the South. They are the BSP in a smaller venue. Admittedly, Athens is a burgeoning beer crowd and they might only be ready to handle a Trapeze and not a BSP but it will do well as long as I am in town. This bar had 24 taps and 240 bottles to start and has continued to grow as they purchased the neighboring coffee house and put taps in there also. Eric and Mike are great guys and know their beer. Be sure to check this out if you are in Athens. Aroma's is the ONLY other bar in Athens worth checking out if you are a beer advocate and, frankly, if you have been to Trapeze you could skip Aroma's. DO NOT GO TO THE GLOBE...IT SUCKS!! Enjoy, from all of us in Athens to all of you who visit. We know our beer and love it, come enjoy it with us!

Let's not forget what another has already written: served in proper glassware (70% efficient at this)!!! (976 characters)
