Meet the fine folks of Fremont.
Matt Lincecum and Sara Nelson, husband and wife, are the co-founders and co-owners of Fremont Brewing.
MATT is a long-time environmentalist, community organizer, and homebrewer. To make a living, he became an attorney and specialized in beverage and hospitality law. As fun as that sounds, Matt decided that instead of spending his time making other people’s dreams of owning a bar or restaurant or brewery come true, he should realize his own latent and undisclosed-to-his-wife desire to start a brewery.
SARA, an all-around do-gooder, earned a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology at UW in order to change the world through blowing students’ minds. Unwilling to consign herself to a life of poverty as an under-employed lecturer at small colleges in the middle of nowhere, she bailed from academia and found her true calling working in politics for several years. Working for her family business is the perfect expression of her interest in sustainability and community.
