After a couple years open, local restaurant and brewpub JBGB is ready to reinvent itself.

The restaurant will close effective immediately for renovations and enclosure of the patio area, according to a press release issued Monday night. JBGB officially opened in May 2017.

From the release:

When we opened JBGB’s doors, we had no idea how the public would react to all the things we were offering, and quickly thought of a few things that we could have done a bit differently.

While some of these were easy to check off like the kids’ area, others could only be fixed by a complete remodel which would require massive expense and cause a temporary closure to JBGB in order to accomplish.

So it is with great happiness and equal sadness that we announce that as of Sept. 30, JBGB will be closing down in order to enclose the outside games/music area and add new and improved features to our already fun experience. With the enclosure, we will be able to accomplish a few things such as the ability to hold concerts year round, make upgrades to our patio that weren’t possible previously due to weather exposure, and not to mention that we will be able to enjoy the use of our outdoor activities during the cold months.

The on-site brewery will continue operations as normal, and the beers created there will be available at all JJ’s Grill locations around the state.

Management from the restaurant will be in contact with guests who have reservations over the next few months.

“We want to thank each and every one of you that have come out to enjoy JBGB in the 2 1/2 years that we’ve been open, and we can’t wait to show you everything we have up our sleeves for the next iteration,” restaurant officials stated.

Scott Hutcheson, who handles communications for JBGB, said the renovations are expected to take about six months.

“Our goal is to be back and operational by spring/early summer if everything goes as planned,” he said. “But we’re pretty confident with the six month range which would put us right in spring.”
