Trappeze Pub


Beer lovers devoted to the Brick Store’s reverent approach often mention Athens’s Trappeze in the same breath. It isn’t simply the more than 200 available beers, including around thirty-five on draft, that make Trappeze exceptional; it’s also the rarities the staff sources and the meticulous tasting notes they compose. And the kitchen could teach most of Atlanta’s pubs how to cook outside the box: Quinoa salad pairs strikingly with hoppy beers.

Drink This: Co-owner Eric Johnson is also the consulting brewmaster for Wild Heaven Craft Beers (see sidebar, page 68); try his Eschaton quadrupel ale, with overtones of dates and raisins, on tap.
