Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A dream more than a year in the making is finally becoming a reality for a father-son duo.

Michael Weisel and his son Seth opened the doors Friday to their new microbrewery downtown.

Construction for Galaxy Brewing Company began in February. Now months later, the Weisels said it's nice to see people inside, enjoying the new place.

Unlike other nearby micro-breweries, Weisel said they are kegging their beer.

"So, we are going to have always 12 different types of beer," said Managing Partner Michael Weisel. "We are going to have our standard beers, we will always have our seasonal beers, and what Seth calls 'one-offs,' (which means) Let's make something crazy, something new."

The Weisels say they are also emphasizing local products, including local ingredients, local staff and local contractors.

On Sunday, they will hold their grand opening and kick off their food service.
