HORSEHEADS, NY (WENY) -- A local brewery that closed last year is expected to reopen this spring, with new ownership.

In a Facebook post, the new owners of Horseheads Brewing on Old Ithaca Road say they hope to be open in March of 2019. They also promised to keep the same recipes developed by the former owners. The brewery closed in July of 2018, after the previous owners announced they would be retiring.

Recently, the building was purchased by Brian and Kevin Lilly. 

Disclosure: The Lillys also own Lilly Broadcasting, the parent company of WENY.
