Kelsey Grammer Is Starting A Brewery On His Land In The Catskills
CHEERS! (you see what I did there?)
Actor Kelsey Grammer whom you may know from the sitcoms 'Cheers' and 'Frasier', as "Beast" from X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, or maybe even as the voice of The Simpsons 'Sideshow Bob', is looking to open a brewery on his farm in Upstate New York's Catskill Mountains.
According to NewYorkUpstate.com the executive director of the Upstate Brewers Association, Paul Leone, posted a picture on facebook the other day that was captioned "Hey, look who's opening a brewery in New York State". I am not personally friends with Paul so I couldn't see his post but I have seen the picture circulated quite a bit so I'm gonna take their work for it and say that this is legit news.
At this point it looks like Kelsey plans to build the brewery in Margaretville and they say he's got a great spot of land in the Catskills that has an old barn on it which he plans on renovating while also growing his own local hops and barley.
While the brewery completion is probably at least a year out it does come with a name. The new brewery will be called the Faith American Brewing Co., after Kelsey's youngest daughter. They say he's got some big plans in place and even already has his brewer picked out.
He's being very thoughtful about this project and making it all about the quality of the beer
I wonder if anyone over at Saranac are going to get in on this action? He seemed to be a fan when he visited the brewery in Utica last year. I predict at least one collaboration within the 1st year of opening. I don't know about you but I'm pretty excited to see what Kelsey puts out. I mean I've been known to enjoy a craft beverage or two.
