Update (a few years later):
Not at all what it used to be, especially the service. It seems that every time I go, I get the "if the staff does not acknowledge that I have entered the establishment wishing to spend my money in the next three minutes, I'm out of here" thought. This happens in the middle of the day -- at times when my party are the only 2-3 people in the joint.

The too cool hipster attitude goes a little too far here, but I keep coming back for the selection.

I finally made it to Trapeze after hearing about it from many friends, and boy and I glad!

The atmosphere is cozy and small -- very intimate.

The quality blew me away. While other places will gouge you good for rare and specialty beers, Trapeze features some very fair prices which are all very clearly posted -- something other pubs should do. The bartender even asked me how much I planned on spending, and steered me away from beers that he felt were not worth the high price when there were other cheaper alternates of better quality.

The selection is crazy. At least 15 taps, many of which I have never seen other places, and scores of bottles.

Like I suggested earlier, the value is great at every turn, and the service is spectacular. The bartenders are quick to bring water as well as nice bread with oil and balsamic vinegar - gratis.

I will be back a hundred more times.

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.
