Cheers: Actor Kelsey Grammer Plans To Open A Brewery In The Catskills


“Actor Kelsey Grammer — who shot to stardom in the 1980s as a barfly on the TV sitcom “Cheers” — plans to open a brewery on a farm in Upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains.”

A notable comment: “He played a wine snob on TV, now he can play a beer snob in real life.”
