Kelsey Grammer to visit local Tops supermarket

Kelsey Grammer.

An Emmy Award winning actor is coming to a local supermarket later this week.

Kelsey Grammer will be at a Tops market in Penfield on Friday, September 24, at 1601 Penfield Rd.

Grammer will be at the supermarket to promote his Faith American Ale and Faith American Calico Man IPA.

It’s actually something that’s been brewing for a while. The star who spent so much time on a barstool on the set of Cheers actually started his Faith American Brewing Company in 2015 in the Catskills, in Delaware County.

According to Forbes, Grammer began brewing his beer in 2019, but shut down production during the pandemic.

But now production is ramping back up and Tops spokesperson Kathy Sautter said that Grammer will be at a Buffalo store on Thursday and will visit Penfield on Friday.

“We have a great relationship with his line, Faith American Ale, that he just recently launched just within the past several years, and it’s just wonderful that he’s going to be coming into our stores to be able to meet and greet with some of his biggest fans,” said Sautter.

Grammer will be at the Penfield Road Tops on Friday from 2-3:30 p.m. and Tops said that fans can buy a four-pack of the beer to be autographed by the actor.
