The community is invited to celebrate Busted Knuckle Brewery’s ground breaking on Tuesday, October 29 at 4 p.m. The business is in the former Williams County Highway Department building at 213 11th Street West.
The brewery is owned by Ben and Connie Boreson and their children Jake Boreson and Emma Kuester. This is Ben and Connie’s second location. The original site is in their hometown of Glasgow, MT.
“We are happy to finally be to this point and excited to come to Williston,” said Connie Boreson.
The new brewery will feature a mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
“The Busted Knuckle Brewery will be brewing on site and offering a variety of craft beers as well as non-alcoholic homemade root beer and crème soda,” said Boreson.
In addition, a restaurant will offer food to customers.
“Along with craft beer, Caleb and Micki Hinricksen will open a BBQ restaurant, Pit #105, adjoining the brewery,” said Boreson.
The groundbreaking ceremony officially marks the beginning of the construction/remodeling phase of the project. The restaurant and bar anticipate opening in the summer of 2020.
Ben Boreson credits Williston Economic Development for helping them get to the remodeling phase of the project.
“This building purchase would not have happened without the support of Williston Economic Development and the expertise of their staff,” he said.
The Busted Knuckle will feature a welcoming atmosphere for its customers
“We will bring a conventional brewery atmosphere where friends and family can gather and socialize,” said Boreson.
Boreson says they will keep people posted on their grand opening date via their Facebook page at bkbwilliston.
