Pictured is the former Ford garage building at the corner of Pitt and Richard streets on Friday. 

Owners of the Dalesmen Distillery and Brewery on Friday announced plans to relocate their establishment away from the former Ford garage in downtown Bedford, citing unexpected construction costs needed to adequately refurbish the about century-old building.

The group now intends to build a new facility in Bedford County but outside of the downtown area, with their first choice being in the Bedford County Business Park in Bedford Township.
