Dash’s Market on Hertel Avenue hosts Kelsey Grammer who is launching his Faith American Ale Beer IPA’s. Best known for his two-decade long portrayal of Dr. Frasier Crane on the NBC Primetime comedy “Cheers” and its spin-off “Frasier,” the four-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe Award winner, actor, producer, director and writer will appear at the Hertel Dash’s Market, at 1770 Hertel Ave., from noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
Faith American Brewing Co. LLC was founded in 2015 as the first step toward a dream that is decades old. Grammer visited the Catskills as a boy and spent some of his most precious days there. He always suspected he would have a future with those mountains. Grammer described his dream “of returning this land and even this region to prosperity; a dream that commerce could restore this magnificent corner of the world to a thriving and vital place in America's economy that gave birth to the idea of a brewery. It is our hope is that Faith will create and sell beautiful beers of all varieties.”
Grammer will showcase the first two IPAs: Faith American Ale, which is described as “beer that tastes like beer, with character and a hoppy flavor that does not overwhelm”; and Calico Man IPA, which is “a salute to the spirit of ‘The Calico Indians,’ farmers in the 1800s who wore disguises of Calico, a new material imported from India, to resist a corrupt system of rent for land they worked, and to honor their place in the enduring fight for freedom.”
Dash’s Market CEO Joe Dash said he is pleased to host Grammer: “We applaud Kelsey for his commitment to the American spirit and respecting the blessing of our great land through his recent endeavor Faith American Brewing LLC. We welcome friends and neighbors to come out, meet Kelsey, and experience these unique IPA beers at our Hertel Avenue store."
Grammer will also be on hand to greet the public. Four packs of the beer are available for purchase at Dash’s and can be signed by Grammer. For more information, visit www.dashsmarket.com or call 716-204-0368. For more information on Faith American Brewing Co., visit faithamericanbrewingcompany.com.
