Kelsey Grammer can add "brewery owner" to his résumé.
The “Cheers” alum, 62, is opening a new brewery named after his daughter, Faith Grammer. It’ll be called Faith American Ale, and it’s located in upstate New York on a property Grammer purchased more than two decades ago.
“We’re working on it. It’s very hard because it’s in a watershed, so you have to do a lot of stuff for water treatment, waste disposal — all that stuff,” Grammer said on “Live With Kelly and Ryan” on Tuesday. “And it’s important, so we’re doing that.”
The land holds special meaning to the “Last Tycoon” actor, who used to spend Thanksgivings on his grandfather’s farm in Delaware County.
“I always wanted to return this particular place to a sense of thriving kind of community place that would lift everybody up a little bit,” said Grammer after explaining how the town fell on hard times.
Grammer entered rehab in 1996 for drug and alcohol addiction that stemmed from his family’s murders, but in an interview with the Times, Grammer admitted he imbibes.
“I no longer go to AA and I still enjoy a drink,” he said. “People need to know how to move on and put things in another place. Drinking is not a vice.”
