Grammer, who played the TV character, Frasier Crane on the NBC sitcom, “Cheers” from 1982 to 1993, reprised the role of the radio psychiatrist in the spinoff sitcom, “Frasier” which ran also on NBC for 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004.

The Frasier reboot premiered its first two episodes of a 10-episode season on Oct. 12 exclusively on Paramount+. New episodes drop weekly on Thursdays.

Grammer has always had a deep love for Atlantic City, having visited the Jersey Shore town since he was a child. Ever since launching his Faith American Brewing Company in 2015, Grammer has been touring and promoting his beer.

He has been to the Garden State several times, especially Atlantic City where he’s popped in at the Golden Nugget Casino’s Rush Lounge, as well as A’Dam Good Sports Bar at Tropicana’s The Quarter.

Grammer’s Faith American beer is available in Atlantic City at The Irish Pub, Steel Pier, and Hard Rock Casino.
