The B52 Burgers and Brew rooftop patio is now open for business. Named B52 Up Top, the Inver Grove Heights restaurant opened up the 100-seat rooftop patio at 4 p.m. Friday, June 23 and it will be open from now until the snow flies, says B52 Burgers and Brew co-owner Brandon Bramscher.
In an email to Eat IGH, Bramscher said: “Just dropping a line to let you know the rooftop is open for business! We officially opened at 4 p.m. yesterday. The patio will be open anytime the restaurant is open from now until the snow flies. We are currently running a limited menu for a few days. This will give my kitchen and service staff a chance to get used to all the new changes. We will return to a lunch and dinner menu in a few days.”
Bramscher also provided this information: “One more fun fact – we are insulating the roll up bar doors and have added extra heaters to the bar. This allows us to avoid draining the beer lines during winter. We can now open up the patio on those warm winter days. We are also planning some winter events on the patio. We also have a bunch of blankets for guests, should the heat tables or the fireplace wall not do the trick.”

Kudos for B52 ownership and employees, and the construction for the hard work to get this new rooftop patio developed. It is going to be a happening place, and a favorite hangout for locals, and it starts this weekend, coinciding with this weekend’s Kaposia Days celebration in South Saint Paul.
