Kelsey Grammer, best-known to millions of television viewers as Dr. Frasier Crane from "Fraser" and "Cheers," is suddenly the toast of the New York State Brewers Association.
According to executive director Paul Leone, the 61-year-old actor is in the very early stages of launching his own brewery.
"He's being very thoughtful about this project and making it all about the quality of the beer," Leone wrote on Facebook, as reported by New York Upstate. "Good guy all the way around and we're happy he's building this here in NYS. Catskill region."
Since at least 2007, Grammer has owned a 19th century farmhouse with 200 acres in Andes, New York, which is a little over three hours from New York City. The brewery itself will be located about 15 minutes away in Margaretville, and the actor plans to use his land to help source some of the necessary crops.
"He has a great property in the Catskills and he wants to rehab an amazing barn on it, grow hops and barley," added Leone. "He's got his plans in place and a brewer already picked out."
As for a name, Grammer has settled on Faith American Brewing Co., in honor of his daughter.
When can we expect Margaretville to become a new pitstop for craft beer fans? Leone isn't saying and in fact, may have already said too much. As of this afternoon, both the Instagram and Facebook posting announcing the brewery have been removed.
