Slice Beer Company is a cozy and intimate microbrewery, which recently opened shop in Lincoln, California. The brewery runs an adjoining taproom with an area of approximately 500 sq. ft, where they serve up a heavily-rotated offering of beers. The brewery sees itself as being able to provide customers with fresh, hoppy, west coast, and hazy IPAs. However, they preach a “culture of fresh” and are open to experimenting with their brews and offering up innovative beers to their patron’s delight. Slice Beer Company packs within itself a 10 BBL brewhouse, where it houses 20 BBL fermenters in a 1,100 sq. ft space.
Brewmaster Zack Frasher is behind the helm of the Slice Beer Company. Frasher worked as founding head brewer and operations manager for the wildly popular brewery Moonraker in Sacramento before co-founding Slice Beer Company. Frasher also has experience working in other breweries, such as Knee Deep and Mraz Brewing, as well as a long history with homebrewing. Today, he is an award-winning brewer with his own brewery to boot. Zack nurses a passion for craft beer and thinks of a brewmaster as no less than a chef, curating unique beer drinking experiences for his customers.
The other co-founder and CEO of Slice Beer Company is Russ Yeager, marketing director at Old Town Pizza. Yeager has always been enthusiastic about beer and has worked as an industry supplier and traveled to various reputed beer festivals all over the country. In 2015, Russ decided to offer a selection of 24 beers on draft at OTP. Fast forward to now, and you’ll see that the man has taken his love for beer to the ultimate level and is now co-founder of Slice Beer Co.
