Actor Kelsey Grammer Opening Upstate New York Brewery
You know Kelsey Grammer from a ton of television shows like "Frasier" and "Cheers," but what you may not know is that he has a passion for beer and he's bringing it to Upstate New York.
The first time we heard news of Kelsey Grammer's brewery, Faith American, it was in a hidden video at Shmaltz Brewing in Clifton Park. We heard that Shmaltz produced the test batch and assumed that we would be seeing more of Grammer in the Capital Region but after the facility was sold to Singlecut, that may not be the case anymore.
New York Upstate is reporting that Faith American Brewery, as of last month, doesn't have an active license on file with the New York State Liquor Authority but they do have a wholesale license in Kelsey's wife's name under the address 344 Ruff Road in Middletown. Kelsey also has a pending license for a "summer tavern wine" for a business called Fabco Odyssey listed under the same address.
Grammer's people haven't commented on any of this but it's good to see that the actor isn't taking his idea completely out of Upstate New York, we'll just have to travel a little further south to experience it ourselves.
