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.

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.
