Serving nondenominational fare like steak frites, tofu-fried rice, jalapeño-lime hummus, and Belgian fries (served with your choice of blue cheese, raspberry ketchup, or garlic aioli), this bustling corner eatery is an Athens staple. Food offerings aside, the Trappeze Pub is a popular haunt for beer enthusiasts in particular: the extensive draft list focuses local and regional breweries, as well as imported European drafts. While it's predominantly a dinner spot, don't write off brunch -- the Trappist waffles and Double Pig burger are not to be missed.
This laid-back gastropub not only carries craft beers from the best breweries in Georgia, but from everywhere else you'd imagine. Whether you’re an out-of-towner from Virginia, California, or Pennsylvania, Trappeze will likely have your beer of choice on tap. Its Belgian fries were voted best in Athens, and its bar food is top notch. And while said award-winning Belgian fries come with blue cheese, raspberry ketchup, or garlic aioli, we recommend getting all three.
