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)!!!

I thought this bar really had their act together. Service was great even though it was jam packed when I was there. Beer selection is off the charts, Belgian style ales on tap were amazing, Chimay on tap was ethereal, unreal. German, English beers too. Big list of American Belgians as well. Had cask conditioned ale there last week, loose cannon, that was bonkers. Unless you are a coors light drinker you need to make it over to Trappeze. One other thing is that all the beers were really performing well, they deliver the beer to the glass(the right glass too) in perfect condition. I heard they have glycol lines. I got drug over there from my monthly trip to Atlanta and want to go back next month.

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

Trappeze is a beer lover's dream. More taps than you've ever seen and over a hundred bottles to boot. They offer cheese pairings which I really like, and the bartenders are really knowledgeable. You can tell they love their jobs. They also will give you the correct glass that your beer should be served in, which is pretty cool.
It's a really nice atmosphere, just kind of quiet and low key but still fun. It's a really nice reprieve from all the crowded bars in Athens. It's the perfect place to just sit and have a drink. They play some great music there, too.
