Atwater Brewery Opens New Rooftop Biergarten

Detroit, Michigan — Detroit’s Atwater Brewery continues to expand with the opening of its new rooftop biergarten above its century old brew house in Detroit.  The new Atwater Detroit Tap House at 237 Joseph Campau will celebrate its “official” Grand Opening Thursday, May 18, beginning at 6:00 pm.

The new rooftop venue is an exciting addition to the Detroit food and beverage scene and will feature rotating taps offering a selection of Atwater beers with special emphasis on its signature “Dirty Blonde” and “Whango Mango Wheat,” plus the brewer’s wines and spirits.  The open air rooftop has biergarten-style seating plus a long bar railing where guests can sit to enjoy beautiful views of the Detroit River and the historic Rivertown district.

The Atwater Detroit Tap House and rooftop will join the brewer’s award-winning ‘Atwater In the Park’ location in Grosse Pointe Park and Atwater Grand Rapids in offering outdoor biergarden seating.

“We’ve always said we want to take Detroit everywhere and we’re delivering on the promise,” said Atwater owner Mark Rieth.  “With our new rooftop biergarten, our guests can just take it upstairs and enjoy the incredible ambiance and views of our exciting and fast changing city and the river while enjoying some of Atwater’s hometown refreshments.”

Atwater, which has more than doubled its brewing capacity in the two past years, has also expanded its distribution and now sells its beers in more than 30 states and Canada.

The new rooftop is open from 3:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and at 11:00 a.m. Friday – Sunday.  Happy Hour is daily from 3 to 6 p.m. with bar snacks available and $1 off draft beer.  Reservations are not required.  Visitors are encouraged to check out Atwater’s full service restaurant downstairs from the rooftop.
