HORSEHEADS (WENY) -- A local brewery wins big at a New York State brewing competition.
     Horseheads Brewing's Chocolate Porter won Silver for Best Craft Beer in New York State at the Tap New York festival held this past weekend in the Catskills.
     Horseheads Brewing was among over 70 other craft brewers at the competition and competed against 250 craft beers.
     It's the second year in a row the brewery took home the silver in this category.
