Glasgow's first and only brewery! Owner, Ben Boreson, was a mechanic for 30 years and tired of busting his knuckles. After home brewing beer for 5 years, he made the decision to transform the garage into a microbrewery. The Busted Knuckle opened in...more

What a great spot to enjoy a few pints after a long drive. Several beers on tap, including some unique non alcoholic selections. We enjoy the local beer everywhere we go and this place was excellent. Highly recommend.

First time there. They have a large choice, and was offered samples, explaining detailed each beer type. Beer price is much better (lower) than restaurants....

The atmosphere reflects the owners history as a mechanic. Tables are made of radiators, cam shafts, trouble lights, and car hoods adorn the building. 12 beers on tap from Hefeweizen to a malted Stout, all tasted great. Friendly staff, local atmosphere enhanced with 1920's pictures...More

So the ambience ... Oh yeah industrial artistic at its best .. Coolest place to chill in this soul sucking town.... Beer needs darker Brews or stronger German flavor .. Really only light brews.

Atmosphere is cool - mechanic theme throughout. Beer is great. A hidden gem along the HiLine. Wide variety of brews and they even have root beer and cream soda for the kids!

From the wrench handles on the taps to the radiator tables, this mechanic shop turned brewery has great brews and a fun atmosphere.
