Sarah Freeman has been writing about food and drinks from her hometown of Chicago for the past decade. She takes some credit (and blame) for introducing the world to Malört cocktails and has a newfound passion for natural wine.


Freeman was the managing editor of Pitchfork's beer-focused sister site, October. Her work has also appeared in Chicago Magazine, Munchies, and Tales of the Cocktails. While her current focus is beer and spirits, her first love is writing about food and restaurants. Previously she was an editor for Eater and Zagat in Chicago.


Freeman earned Bachelor of Arts degrees in Journalism and English with a concentration in Creative Writing from Lehigh University. Product Review Editorial Guidelines & Mission
