Jeff Frederick has gone from delegate to prime minister.

It’s an unlikely transition, of course, but perhaps so is a move from politics to beer brewing, and the 40-year-old is making that shift, too.

Frederick, a former member of the Virginia House from Prince William County, is one of four co-founders of Brew Republic Bierwerks, scheduled to open in August in Woodbridge.

The brewpub is where Frederick, also a former chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, is getting that “prime minister” title. The business is a “republic,” its patrons are called “citizens” and, whenever they drink one of the company’s beers, they’re deemed to be “in the republic” — wherever they might physically be.
