One of Bozeman’s long-standing and much-loved restaurants The Garage closed its doors to undergo a big facelift. When it reopens, it will be known as SHINE Beer Sanctuary + Bottle Shop. SHINE is expected to carry over the things we loved most about the Garage while rebranding its self as “fine casual” with customizable food, 30+ beers on tap and a wine selection. After the remodel, the space will include a second level patio, curated beer bar, a “taste & bake bottle shop” and more.
