The fire was fast moving and devastating. Standing outside the rubble in the immediate aftermath Christian Weber knew that Common Roots would rebuild. 

The brewery in upstate New York had become a community hub and the loss was devastating not only for the customers, for Weber’s family – which founded and built the brewery – but also the employees who relied on the company. 

So from day one Weber said the workers would be supported and the brewery would be back. 

On this episode of Drink Beer, Think Beer with John Holl Weber talks about the rebuilding process, and the brewery’s plan for additional growth just across the street.

It’s a remarkable journey for this brewery – which is centered in the Adirondacks – but available in 10 states.
