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My one criticism is that the menu is frequently outdated.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.

A really good list of beers on tap but to be world class they needto add at least a few more taps. There were a few exotic beers I haven't had before but the prices were very high (at least $9). Excellent food. Friendly service.

Athens, I love you. This place is so cool from beer to food they got you covered.
Had a wonderful craft beer selection, and an incredibly knowledgable staff that knew
a great deal about the beer. Honestly, this place is a must go for any craft beer enthusiast.
I recommend going to Creature Comforts brewery first for a tour, then going to Trappeze Pub for a burger and awesome brew.

I love this pub. It is the absolute best place in Athens and the surrounding area for good beer. Thankfully it also has really good food, it's easy to convince girlfriends or others to join you if it has a tap listing you want to try.

The draft beers are numerous (20+) and frequently varying, the website is updated bi-weekly to let you know what's new. Prices are very manageable, 1/2 pours of most beers means more tries for less money.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Great pub atmosphere with an even better drink selection.
