The beer is flowing again in an Owego taproom that had been used by a Tioga County craft brewery.
Lucky Hare Brewing Company of Hector has set up shop at 17 Lake Street. The new taproom began operating Thursday for a soft opening.
The place had been home to Farmhouse Brewery until last October. Farmhouse shut down about eight years after it was founded.
Lucky Hare Brewing Company began renovating the site several weeks ago. Although much of the setup is similar to the previous operation, some changes have been made.
Lucky Hare Brewing president Richard Thiel said a grand opening celebration for the Owego taproom is planned for May 24.
The company also is preparing to hold an event to mark the seventh anniversary of its taproom in Hector on Seneca Lake on May 20.
In addition to the two taprooms, Lucky Hare operates a production facility in Watkins Glen.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
