In Dining

Look up from the patio and beer garden at Milwaukee Brewing Co. and you'll see the edge of The Rooftop, the city's newest rooftop patio.

A roof with a view: Your first look at the Milwaukee Brewing Co. rooftop patio

Today is the day. The rooftop patio at Milwaukee Brewing Co. – located two floors above Glass + Griddle, 1130 N. 9th St. – officially opened tonight at 4 p.m.

But we paid a visit this afternoon as crews were prepping for the patio's first guests to give you a firsthand look at what you can expect from the newest rooftop in the city.

Get some fresh air

To get to the rooftop, enter Glass + Griddle and veer to the right. You'll see a sign indicating whether the rooftop is open or closed and a host will let you know if seating is available. From there, just take the elevator to floor R.

A third-floor oasis

The patio features both soft and hard seating. Currently, the entire patio is open air, but soon the south side of the patio will showcase a covered roof, offering a bit of shade and protection for the bar from the elements.

The bar

During its inaugural weekend, the patio will feature bar service only; guests sill find a menu showcasing craft cocktails, beer and award-winning wines. A food menu featuring dishes from Glass + Griddle, the beer hall restaurant located just below the patio, will also be available beginning in the next week or so.

Take a seat

Most of the patio features soft seating, perfect for hanging out with a beer or cocktail and visiting with friends.
