Moonraker’s former head brewer unveiled his new project Wednesday afternoon with a Facebook post. Zack Frasher is co-founding Slice Beer Co., which will open this summer at 665 6th Street in Lincoln, according to a Facebook post from the new brewery.

Frasher helped Moonraker become one of the fastest-growing and most-popular breweries in the Sacramento area. With a focus on hazy IPAs, the brewery topped Russian River’s Pliny the Younger in a beer competition in 2017. Frasher was Moonraker’s founding head brewer and operations manager.

Frasher also worked at Knee Deep and Mraz brewing.

His co-founder, Russ Yeager, is the CEO and co-founder of Slice. Yeager is the marketing director at Old Town Pizza, where he will continue to work. The brewery will share a building with Old Town Pizza’s Lincoln location.
