On March 25, 2019, Common Roots Brewing Company, a growing family-run business and thriving community hub in South Glens Falls, NY suffered a massive structural fire that destroyed the majority of their building.
As with many fires, the sentimental value of what was lost is most difficult accept. Much of the brewery was renovated and built-out by Bert and Christian Weber, the father-son duo who founded the company in 2013 and officially opened their doors to the public in December 2014.
Bert and Christian are fully committed to rebuilding and supporting their team of 20 part- and full-time employees. They also wanted to harness in a meaningful way the outpouring of support from the community and industry peers. Their family created this GoFundMe page as place for those interested in helping to do so.
Contributions made to this campaign will officially be gifted to Common Roots Brewing Company in order to bridge the gap on losses not covered by insurance, rebuilding efforts, and – most importantly – to invest in employee support.
On behalf of Bert, Christian, and the entire Common Roots Brewing Company family, thank you for your generosity and well-wishes.
